Video: Static-X Perform at “Herd Immunity Fest”
The controversial “Mini Fest” — once known as “Herd Immunity Fest” — has come and gone. It will probably be awhile before we can gauge whether or not it was really “safe” to hold the three-day-event in a part of Wisconsin where coronavirus cases are on the rise, but in the meantime, we can analyze fan-filmed video of the set by headliners Static-X, as well as some photos of the crowd.
So, first, the photos: it does not look like anyone in the crowd took Static-X’s pleas to wear a face mask to heart. It also doesn’t look like there were very many people in attendance, though, and at least some of the concertgoers did take measures to remain socially distanced from fellow attendees.
As for the video, it appears that Static-X guitarist Koichi Fukuda did wear a face mask… although he never covered his nose, and frequently didn’t even cover his mouth, instead wearing the mask down around his chin (see photo above). So I guess it was just for show? He might as well have been wearing a creepy Wayne Static cosplayer mask, for all the good it would’ve done him.
