Best story from behind the wood | I’d have to go with the exploding bottle of Angostura on the bar top. No one around. Caught on CCTV. At a bar in Melbourne called Day Of The Dead, during a rockstar shift. Super strange, super creepy. We replayed that footage over and over, cause it just didn’t make sense. There was no change in temperature or to the bottle or anything…Not the first creepy thing that has happened at that bar – like the random water glass being flung across the room while the venue was closed…
