sorry so far

Band banned from Mod Club after singer drop-kicks fan

Pop-punk band The Story So Far made headlines for all the wrong reasons today after a video from their Sunday night show at the Mod Club surfaced. It showed lead singer Parker Cannon drop-kicking a young fan who jumped the stage in order to take a selfie.

Apparently this isn't the first time Parker's lashed out against a selfie enthusiast. As CBC News notes, he literally kicked a man offstage during a concert in Houston, Texas last June.

Mod Club has responded in kind and has since banned The Story So Far from the Little Italy-area venue. "We are appalled by the actions of the singer," said manager Jorge Dias in an email to the CBC. He also described Parker's behaviour as cowardly.

Becca Ilic, however, who identifies herself as the selfie-taking fan took to social media this afternoon blaming herself for what happened saying "Parker was totally in the right and I would have expected nothing less, especially at that type of show."

She goes on to explain "I was being stupid for being on stage...and I was drunk. I'm f*ucking fine and I rallied as hard as ever in the pit after that. Didn't even hurt."

Ilic even apologies to Parker and the band for "acting like an idiot" and is "sorry for all the drama."
