At the Norva: Bouncing Souls. With The Unabombers, The Pietasters, and Invaluable

June 02, 2018466Views

Punk rolled through the Norva a few days ago with some local bands featuring prominently to great success.

Low key icons of the genre from New Jersey -- The Bouncing Souls are still touring in support of their 2016 release, Simplicity. The record aggregated some pretty positive reviews, and last year the band got a nod from Rolling Stone as one of the the top 50 punk-rock acts of all time. The Pietasters kicked in with their unique brand of ska-soul and rumors have been tossed around that a new record is in the works.

Local assists were provided by The Unabombers and Invaluable, both bands with rising profiles of late. A good time was had by all, and then they went home.
