A Tampa man who said his name is Tommy Wanxworth claims to be the previously unidentified fan that Brass Against lead singer Sophia Urista urinated on during the band’s performance at the Rockville Festival in Daytona Beach last month and has been named the Grand Marshal of the 2022 Gasparilla celebration in Tampa, starting in late January.
“With so much of Gasparilla involving displays of unauthorized public urination, it just seemed like a pretty obvious fit”, said Tampa Mayor Jane Castor. “I mean, that’s not what Gasparilla is all about but it does happen, so…”
Wanxworth said, “Nobody has been identified as that fan, so I stepped up and said it was me just to find out what might happen. Now I’m going to be in some parades. Pretty cool, huh?” He added, “There’s a lesson here of some sort.”
When asked if he definitely was that fan, he said, “Who cares? As far as you know, I am. It doesn’t really matter, does it?”
