Welcome to Rockville attendees got more than a musical act on Thursday night when Brass Against performed. 

Brass Against is a cover band that primarily does brassy covers of rock music, covering artists such as Tool. 

However, while performing Rage Against the Machine’s song Wake Up, lead singer Sophia Urista called a fan on stage and proceeded to pull her pants down and urinate on his face.

This was not only a shock to fans in the crowd as the other band members had no idea that she was going to do that.

Spin reports that Urista had made several comments about needing to go pee before she called the fan to the stage. 

After her side performance, the band issued an apology on Twitter on Friday.

One of the most popular tweets circulating is a video of the act itself happening during the performance, but be aware- it’s messy.

Alongside any criticism, there are people who are tweeting their support for Urista, whether joking or not, many do not seem to be upset at the artist for urinating on the fan. 

Regardless of personal thoughts on the situation, the band has assured fans that this will not happen again.
