Bad Brains Perform Surprise Show In Brooklyn, NY, Original Vocalist Sid McCray & Lamb Of God’s Randy Blythe Guest

Bad Brains played a surprise show at the Okay Space art gallery in Brooklyn, NY yesterday (June 8) as part of Darryl Jenifer‘s art exhibit. Considering H.R. is still recovering from brain surgery, and the fact that Dr. Know is still recovering from cardiac arrest he suffered in 2015, the band only played six songs with a couple of guests helping them out, including original singer Sid McCray and Lamb Of God‘s Randy Blythe. You can see footage of that below:

Tonight was one of the best nights of my life. Bad Brains played a secret show in Brooklyn at an art gallery for the opening of their bassist's art exhibit- no stage, on the floor with the people, straight-up old-school style. That's why I'm in NYC, to help these dudes out with a couple of the faster tunes. The full original lineup of Bad Brains played- HR sang "Jah Love" "The Youth Are Getting Restless" & "Re-Ignition". Then I sang "The Big Takeover" & "Banned In DC". Then Sid McCray, the FIRST singer of Bad Brains closed it out by singing "Regulator" for the first time since 1978. HOLY COW. The crowd went INSANE. In these divisive times, we all UNITED tonight in one huge, intense ball of PMA- black, white, yellow, red, brown, male, female- all of us were UNITED- all you saw & felt were smiles. Absolutely incredible, & punk rock to the core. You could just FEEL the love in the air. I sang with my favorite band of all time tonight- I can't explain how that makes me feel. So thanks for asking me to be here, @badbrainsofficial! ONE LOVE PEOPLE! ❤️✊🏻✊🏼✊🏽✊🏾✊🏿❤️ Photo by: @kevinwilsonnyc. #badbrains #pma
