Two people were arrested after a vehicle crashed into the Zydeco concert hall in Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday, September 21, as AL.com reported.
That night, rock band From Ashes to New had performed at Zydeco during a stop on their current US tour with other POD rockers and others, according to Stone feed. The scene images show the front part of a car housed in the facade of the building.
One such video was shared by From Ashes to New’s Matt Brandyberry and then re-shared by fans on social media. In it, he explains what he knew about the accident and the alleged security altercation that preceded it – it was apparently a gun.
