At a recent show by the band CHVRCHES, fursuiters in the audience were invited on stage. Berkeley’s Daily Californian praised the spontaneity of the show: Furries, fans unite at CHVRCHES performance at Fox Theatre.
Lauren Mayberry, the band’s frontwoman, told the audience: “If the republicans get into office, this sh!t won’t fly!”
It was all a surprise. Some of the Bay Area Furries were there just as fans, with no plan to participate on stage. But they’re not shy about sharing the spotlight that way. It happens often, like in July 2015: Fursuiters were kings at Andrew WK’s Pizza Party in San Francisco.
It comes from a subculture at it’s most fertile. It’s because they’re in Furry Mecca, and 2016 is the Year of Furry, and these fans make effort like no others to spread the love. If you’re feeling sad or afraid, or negative or worried about the world, bring furries to make it better.
Here’s full videos of the surprise fursuiting with CHVRCHES.
