"Wino" Weinrich with Saint Vitus at Europa, 2013 (more by Greg Cristman)


Scott "Wino" Weinrich has quite the history behind him. Though he's best known for his vocal work in Saint Vitus (the band from which the Brooklyn bar partially takes its name), he's been involved in a number of other notable concerns: The Obsessed, Place of Skulls, Premonition 13, Spirit Caravan, and his solo work. Both Saint Vitus and The Obsessed are back in action after years off.

Spirit Caravan, Wino's main late-'90s/early '00s venture, have reformed too. They'd already been announced as part of the lineup for this year's (totally ridiculous) edition of France's Hellfest. The band has also just announced an expansive North American tour with Providence doomsters Pilgrim in tow, including SXSW and a NYC stop on April 15 at Saint Vitus Bar (naturally). Tickets are on sale now. Rest of lineup TBA.
