Fans of ‘cholo goth’ duo, Prayers, turned out in force at Back Bar SoFa to catch songs from San Diego group’s new, Travis Barker-produced EP, ‘Young Gods.’ The show—hosted by the San Jose-based alternative Latino music collective, Sonido Clash—also featured an opening set by Xuxa Santamaria, and DJ spots by Cutso and Chatos 1013. Check out our video interview with Prayers’ frontman Rafael Reyes (a.k.a. Seyer Leafar).
In the clip, Reyes discusses working with former Blink-182 drummer, Travis Barker, the support he feels from the chicano community in San Jose, and bringing his gangster swagger to goth music.
This is not the first time Prayers have played Back Bar SoFa. The duo came to San Jose in November of 2014. You can read our interview with them from last year here and check out photos from that show here. Photos from last Thursday’s show are below. Photos by Geoffrey Smith II:
