Plague Bringer at Reckless

There was an excellent turnout at Reckless Records yesterday for Plague Bringer's Record Store Day show and the band sounded great. And at the last moment, when the packed crowd thought that they were finished, Greg announced that they were going to play "Burning Inside," much to the enthusiastic crowd's approval. I believe that this was only the second time that they played the song, the other time being the very first time that Isidro and I saw the band, when they appeared with Prurient at Transmission Gallery in June of 2004 (!). Von Leutch and I ran over to Beard Papa's for a chocolate custard cream puff and a nice shot of Illy espresso, and I had to be content to watch Sweet Cobra from outside the store, rather than fight through the crowd to get back inside. Bassist and vocalist Botchy Vaquez rewarded the sidewalk audience by popping out of the store a couple of times, once even with his microphone stand. Fun day! Thanks to everyone who came out to support the band and the special "Burning Inside" box set!!
