The venerable punk label Revelation turned 25 years old this year, and celebrated the occasion by putting on several nights of shows at the The Glasshouse in Pomona, CA, featuring the likes of Sensefield, Underdog, Gameface, and Gorilla Biscuits. The third night’s lineup boasted a “special guest,” which turned out to be a reunited Quicksand, whose debut EP was released on the label in 1990.

At least one report suggests that a similar set of shows may be in the works for NYC, which makes sense, given the number of New York-based bands involved in this weekend’s festivities. Does this mean that New Yorkers will soon get to hear “Thorn In My Side” and “Dine Alone” live for the first time in ages? One can only hope.

Here’s footage of them playing “How Soon Is Now”:
