Last night's World/Inferno Friendship Society show was excellent, even though the sound at Belvedere's is not exactly stellar, and some of the band members were absent for personal matters. I was pleasantly surprised to see a couple hundred people there. Singer Jack Terricloth did some crowd surfing, which, in Belvedere's cramped quarters, placed him perilously close to the ceiling.
I had a hard time getting good pics because of the darkness and smallness of the room. At one point, I had my camera aimed at Jack while he was crowd surfing, ready for the perfect photo, only to find myself forcibly guided into the (thankfully tame) mosh pit, and by the time I emerged, the moment had passed.
Afterwards, we chatted for several minutes with drummer Brian Viglione, previously of the Dresden Dolls. He is psyched to be part of World/Inferno, and his enthusiasm is palpable. He confirmed that he will be part of the band's next album, to be recorded in the coming months.
When I casually brought up this blog, Brian noted that he'd seen the blog, and in fact made a post on World Inferno's Myspace blog that linked to our interview with Terricloth. See, famous people read us!
