Video Premiere: Perro Bravo – “4 On The Floor”

Here is the video premiere to Perro Bravo‘s song “4 On The Floor”. The song is available for FREE download, this week only on the homepage until Sat., April 25th. The video was shot by Jeff Pliskin of Raised Fist Propaganda out in Sunset Beach, CA a neighboring community of Long Beach that guitarist/vocalist and former Sublime member, Miguel Happoldt refers to as his second home and a place where his good friend Brad Nowell lived and surfed.
The music video shows the great day and the life of the band rehearsing at the Compound Studio in Long Beach before heading to Mothers Bar in Sunset, performing a live gig. Miguel explained: “There’s a little bar down in Sunset called Mothers that we’ve been going to for 30 years and it’s like an old banged up beach-shack. The main part of the video is shot at the Compound Studio in Long Beach”. This video comes ahead of their bay area shows this weekend from April 23-25th – Check the shows with more information by clicking HERE! Enjoy the song and video…
