The Bouncing Souls @ Knitting Factory

The Bouncing Souls haven't aged a bit and they still have the ability to put on one of the best live shows around. No stage antics - just good music that fans love, love enough to go completely nuts while its being performed. In fact, vocalist Greg Attonito barely needs to move at all. He's like the Frank Sinatra of the punk scene, calmly, and effortlessly, belting out songs that have the crowd thrashing around at the speed of light. This was especially evident when they played a cover of the Misfit's "Mommy can I go out and kill tonight". "We never played this before", he said, "and I don't know why - it's so easy". Chaos ensued.
