Someone Pooped in the Mosh Pit at a Turnstile Concert
Those attending the Santa Cruz show reportedly found feces smeared on the stage
Loudwire points out that a number of fans who attended Turnstile's August 30 performance with Show Me the Body, Never Ending Game and Gulch in Santa Cruz made the unfortunate discovery that someone pooped in the mosh pit at one point during the evening.
The following afternoon. Show Me the Body confirmed the act of dancefloor defecation and subsequent stage-smearing did indeed happen, writing on Twitter, "SOMEONE SHITTED IN THE TURNSTILE PIT LAST NIGHT NO LIE."
The band's post was followed by further confirmation of pit-pooping from promoter Joel Cupcake, whose PinUp Productions co-presented the concert. "I cant believe this but yes human shit ended up on stage last night during Turnstile," he wrote. "As hilarious as this is it's also disgusting & EXTREMELY unsafe. Plz if you have any idea of who it was, plz let me know as that person should not be allowed at shows ever again."
As of press time, the identity of the Turnstile pit pooper remains a "Mystery," and while it's certainly hard to flush that image from our minds, we recommend anyone heading to a concert in the near future to go before the show, and not take any order to "cut the shit, start the pit" so literally.

As a sufferer of IBS, that could've been me taking a shit at a Turnstile show. Sending my prayers and well wishes to the phantom pooper.— stef (@meritforsadness) September 1, 2021
as someone who has, embarrassingly, shit their pants in the past (even had some recent close calls...), I STAND WITH THE TURNSTILE SHOW SHITTER. if you've never come close to shitting your pants, god bless your amazing bowels. some of us aren't so lucky. literally "shit happens"— Triple B Records (@TripleBRecords) September 1, 2021
totally understandable that turnstile would be so sick that someone would shit their pants in the pit— duuude ☕️ (@carinthecreek) September 1, 2021
I pissed my pants at riot fest one year because everyone was doing drugs in the portapotty not letting me piss so I sympathize with whoever shit themselves at the turnstile gig— ☆ vivie ♡ (@sheetmetalgirl_) September 1, 2021
"Shit at the Turnstile show" is the new "Ryan Gosling stage diving at American Nightmare" or "Davey Havok being the one on the motorcycle at Sound & Fury".— stayathomepapi (@KevinGetsRad) September 2, 2021
How long until Turnstile makes "I went to a Turnstile show and all I did was shit my pants" merch— téa campbell 🏅 (@teaofmmata) September 1, 2021
What if we shit in the Turnstile pit?haha just kidding… unless 🥺— TH Speedball (@JohnnyKlix) September 1, 2021
Imagine you wake up and see the entire west coast talking about you shitting on the floor at the Turnstile show— Jake (@jacobzmcclain) August 31, 2021
Y'all scared the turnstile shitter into hiding. We could have waited till they casually told a friend thinking no one noticed and within the week we would have found out through the gossip. Now they hide covered in poop somewhere waiting to strike again.— Urban Cowboy (@_urbancowboy__) September 1, 2021
I just beat the "did you shit during Turnstile" allegations 🙌🏽👏🏽— Jesus (@ilikeshoe) August 31, 2021
