Bleeding Rainbow certainly bring it on new record Yeah Right (it, of course, being angst and vibes)—but there’s something about a live performance that really showcases a group’s true mettle. On this live vid of standout single “Pink Ruff,” the Philly foursome totally kill it, infusing each note with real rock’n roll revelry. Note how Rob Garcia attacks his guitar, as if it’s inhabited by demons who must be pushed out—and how Sarah Everton belts each note with fervor. Al Creedon’s excellent pedal work and Greg Frantz’s madman drumming put the whole thing over the top—to say nothing of…the fog?

“This video cracks me up because you can hear the fog machine,” says Everton. “All that stuff is so goofy. It’s like… ‘Look at us on stage! This is a ROCK show!’”

Leave it to Bleeding Rainbow to make cheesy seem totally punk.

Experience the raucousness yourself tomorrow night when the band plays Johnny Brenda’s. Vibes guaranteed; fog machines optional.
