Gettin' sinister with the Rev, Giuseppe, and Inspecter 7

As Rev Sinister of Inspecter 7 explained, there's one place in America that gives Miami a run for its money in being dark and sordid. That's Asbury Park, New Jersey, the grimey land that the band basically comes from.

And from the first horn blow, guitar chop, kick drum, bass note, and sung lyric, they fit right in at Churchill's Pub, even though they haven't been to this city in 13 years.

Chairman of the sound board, Rat Bastard had the volume cranked to 11, and Washington D.C.'s Immoral Discipline, and the horny local punks of Askultura and Funkman's Inferno all played their hearts out for Die Trying's release show for their new Flatlands EP.
