Plague Vendor Rips The Pants Off The Ohana Fest … Literally Epitaph's Young Band Gets The Party Started On The Main Stage
DANA POINT, CA-
“… Kicking off the action on the main stage was the Southern California based band Plague Vendor. Signed to Epitaph, this quartet- consisting of Brandon Blain, Jay Rogers, Luke Perine and Michael Perez- has really been making a name for themselves with their raucous, and lout, live performances. Their appearance at The Ohana Fest was no exception.
Their music had frenetic urgency that got all of the early arrivals quickly bobbing their heads to the rapid fire rhythms of their cuts. As Jay (guitar), Michael (bass) and Luke (drums), ripped through the music, Brandon commanded the stage with authority, confidently strutting his stuff as he sang with the natural angst that comes with punk. In fact, he strut so hard, he ripped a huge hold in the seat of his trousers. In what would be the first Eddie “pop-up” during the day, Brandon quickly went off stage where Eddie was ready with a roll of duct tape to help “patch up” the problem.
You’d think this kind of on-stage mishap would put a damper on the performance itself, but that was hardly the case. Brandon still jumped around, doing handstands off the Luke’s drum kit, and event ventured into the crowd to rile the audience up even more than they already were…”
