Video: Rain Parade returns after 25 years for Bobby Sutliff benefit concert in Atlanta

Paisley Underground mainstays Rain Parade have reunited after 25 years, performing Saturday night at The Earl in Atlanta during a benefit concert to raise money to help Bobby Sutliff, singer/guitarist/songwriter for ’80s contemporaries The Windbreakers, who was seriously injured in a car accident last summer.

While the show had been announced as the band’s first in a quarter century, the group actually debuted its reunited lineup last month with a low-key appearance as an opening act at a San Francisco club. Singer-guitarist Matt Piucci told Atlanta Music Guide: “We didn’t want to show up in Atlanta without having taken the band out for a spin.”

The band — featuring original/early members Piucci, Steven Roback and John Thoman, plus Mark Hanley, Alec Palao and Game Theory drummer Gil Ray — only has one other show on the books a the moment, an appearance at the MTT Fest in Calgary, Canada, in April.

Below, we’ve rounded up some fan-shot video of the Atlanta reunion gig:
