Over the summer, New Brunswick punk vets The Bouncing Souls parted ways with drummer Michael McDermott (their second drummer), and they'll be revealing Michael's replacement today (9/26). They're doing it in style of course, by playing an intimate hometown show at Asbury Lanes TONIGHT (9/26) and to find out who the new guy is... well you just have to go the show and see for yourself. Admission is $10 at the door and it's all ages. Flyer below.
UPDATE: It's been revealed that the new drummer is George Rebelo of Hot Water Music (and briefly of Against Me!).
This is one of two intimate NY/NJ shows the band is doing in the span of a week, as they're headlining our BrooklynVegan-curated Red Bull Sound Select show on Monday (9/30) at Music Hall of Williamsburg with Gaslight Anthem frontman Brian Fallon, and two punky Brooklyn bands as openers: Aye Nako and Nude Beach. Doors for the MHOW show open at 6:30 PM and the music starts at 8. Like all RBSS shows, admission is $3 at the door. First come, first served.
Bouncing Souls' other upcoming dates include Reading, PA's East Coast Tsunami Fest on Friday (9/27) and Gainesville, FL's The Fest in late October. All dates are listed, along with the flyer for the Asbury Lanes show, below...
