Wish Inflicted + Better Days duo - BEING RE-SCHEDULED

 —  —

BottleTaps, 3020 Bernal Ave #160, Pleasanton, CA

Sorry folks, we were as excited about the below as you were, but due to illness, we’re having to look at new dates to hold this event.

Keep your eyes out on this space for updates.

In the meantime, Brian from Wish Inflicted will play with some friends from local band Vasco Road, for the BottleTaps Halloween party.

After a 9-year hiatus from live shows (aside from the occasional backyard party), it’s time to shake off the dust and get the band back together! Wish Inflicted returns to the stage to play songs from our album “When Something Burns This Bright,” as well as to reveal a new one we’ve been working on in the studio. Opening set will feature throwback originals and covers from Brian and Branden’s solo careers, as well as their duo project “Vision” (Portland, OR, circa ‘97). Yes, we’re getting older and having birthdays, too. Did we mention it is Brian and Branden’s birthday show?! Come out and celebrate! Joining in the festivities will be Better Days duo (Mike and Brian), jamming with the WI crew.

Full band Wish Inflicted appearance, with special guests Mike and Brian from Better Days. Come join the fun and partake of the fantastic food and partake in a wide variety of world class libations. Free. All ages.



Wish inflicted, with guest vocalist Thomas Leitheiser plays a set of fun German new wave / pop and classic "Schlager" (hits). Join us on the Family stage of this awesome yearly German-themed festival / community fundraiser.
