Pop-Punk nostalgia is coming to Central Florida as legends Bowling For Soup and Less Than Jake make a couple of pit stops on their “Back For The Attack Tour” at Jannus Live in St. Pete on July 22 (TICKETS HERE) and at House Of Blues Orlando July 23, 2022 (TICKETS HERE). Killer opening support comes from special guests Cliffdiver and Doll Skin (a must-see). Shows I Go To has some tickets to go see this bonanza, and wants to hook you up! This combo of pop punk and ska is sure to be an absolute blast live, so don’t miss out, get your tickets by clicking the flyers below!
Bowling For Soup has to be one of the most consistently funny bands ever, not even tied to the pop punk genre well known for not taking itself seriously. With their earnest youthfullness, smart writing, and ability to stay irrelevant, BFS has kept themselves together and beloved while constantly churning out hit after hit, such as “Girl All the Bad Guys Want,” “Alexa Bliss,” and “Ohio (Come Back To Texas).” But it’s not just their original songs that make it big! Their biggest song “1985,” is a cover! (SR-71 originally wrote and recorded it) And that other song you think is theirs? “Stacy’s Mom?” That’s a Fountains of Wayne song, but BFS finally decided to cover it as well, so everyone would be right. Here’s a quick refresher, in case you don’t remember the men, the myths, the legends:
Less Than Jake are local heroes and rightfully so. They are one of the biggest bands to come out of Gainesville, with a score of hit albums, classic tracks, and an undeniable amazing live performance. Combining ska and power pop punk together in a way that always gets the crowd dancing the whole show, LTJ have been hitting the road and the airwaves to put smiles on faces for almost 30 years. Along the way, they’ve put together a discography that help them stand up as one of the best ska acts still kicking around, including “Johnny Quest Thinks We’re Selling Out,” “The Science of Selling Yourself Short,” and “All My Best Friends Are Metalheads.” Bring your skankin’ shoes and tie them tight, because you’ll be “picking it up” all night long!
Regardless of which city and venue you are able to make it out to, I guarantee that you’ll have an evening filled with fun, nostalgia, and lots upon lots of three chord songs. Both bands are sure to be frenetic balls of energy that will have you sweaty, happy and singing along to a bunch of songs you forgot you know. And the openers, Cliffdiver and Doll Skin are exactly what you need to complete your evening. So click that link, get signed up, and we’ll see you at the show!
