Hi Adriana, thanks for the great write-up on the Jeremy Shaw video at the Henry. I was curious about what triggered the fight too--according to Shaw's Vancouver dealer, it was about a boy, but not in that way. The blonde had given the other girls' beer to her friends. (I remember the importance accorded to scarce and difficult to obtain resources at high-school parties.) It's interesting given the role a bottle plays in the very beginning and very end of the fight.
