Bouncing Souls @ Highline Ballroom - July 6, 2011
"With that, the [Bouncing Souls] bounded onto the [Highline Ballroom] stage and with the opening notes of "I Like Your Mom" proceeded to whip the capacity crowd into a fervor that did not let up until the end of the "first round". Round 2 was once again preceded by the boxing intro of Gentleman Jim with his announcement of the challenger, "Maniacal Laughter!!!!". The band kept up their relentless pace. So relentless that a guy in a wheelchair crowd surfed his way onto the stage - not once but TWICE! Equal opportunity moshing!!!" [Jake]Though all of the recent celebration has concerned the catalog of The Bouncing Souls (their four night stay in Philly starts Wednesday), their frontman Greg Attonito is also celebrating the release of his own solo album. Natural Disaster which is out NOW, and the Bouncing Souls frontman will take to the stage of Watermark in Asbury Park, NJ TONIGHT (7/12). Stream all of Natural Disaster at AOL and if you dig it, buy a copy at the door and get in FREE ($5 otherwise).
Night one of The Bouncing Souls NYC residency at Highline Ballroom focused on The Good, The Bad, and The Argyle and Maniacal Laughter and featured support from Hostage Calm, Dave Hause, and Weston. Pictures from that night (though none of Hostage Calm) are in this post (pics from night three are HERE). More of them below...
