Petal, who won us over at CMJ and released the very good Shame on Run For Cover this year, just wrapped up a few Northeast dates. They opened a few stops of Bayside's holiday tour, including NJ's Stone Pony last night (12/22), and they played The Menzingers and Tigers Jaw's holiday show in Scranton over the weekend.
Their next tour is in the UK opening for Beach Slang (who just played NYC), but before that they'll squeeze in a NYC one-off on January 4 at Silent Barn with Adult Mom, Jawbreaker Reunion, and 100% (aka Crying singer Elaiza Santos). $8 at the door gets you in. For Adult Mom and Jawbreaker Reunion, it's the second stop of their tour together.

Speaking of The Menzingers, co-lead singers Greg Barnett & Tom May are doing an acoustic performance & DJ set from 4-7 PM on December 28 at Asbury Park's Convention Hall, part of the Bouncing Souls' Home for the Holidays celebration. That's one of two daytime acoustic shows happening that day. The other is from 2-4 PM at Russo's Music with Cayetana singer Augusta Koch, Loved Ones singer Dave Hause, Scandals singer Jared Hart, and Chris Brown (not that Chris Brown, this one).
As we already mentioned, the Souls shows happen 12/26-12/28 at The Stone Pony with The Loved Ones, Tim Barry, Roger Harvey and other openers; and afterparties with Crazy & the Brains, Luther and more. More info on the whole thing is here.
Lastly, speaking of Roger Harvey, in between the Bouncing Souls show and his run with The Loved Ones, he'll open both of Balance & Composure's NYC shows. Those happen 1/6 & 1/7 at Saint Vitus and are both sold out.
The Loved Ones (okay, really this one is "lastly") also have NYC shows on their tour, including Saint Vitus on 12/29 with Texas Is The Reason's Garett Klahn (tickets) and 2/19 at Bowery Ballroom with Cayetana (sold out).
