Teenage Bottlerocket, Pears, Live In Philly (9/18/15)

This past Friday, I headed out to South Philly’s Boot and Saddle to catch one of my favorite pop-punk bands around Teenage Bottlerocket.  I got to the venue, and the small space was decently packed for a 21+ show. Pears: I’ve heard a lot of good things about New Orleans Pears, and with a bunch of friends telling me that I needed to check them out.  I’ve since grabbed their LP and their latest 7-inch on Fat Wreck, but I wound up missing up half […]

Add the fact that I love their latest release Freak […]

Teenage Bottlerocket – Freak Out (For fans of The Copyrights, The Ramones, Screeching Weasel)

I remember when I first heard Teenage Bottlerocket’s Total back in 2005.  I was skating and had it in my headphones, completely blown away by the Ramones influenced pop-punk with clever songs about girls, the radio, and going postal at work.  I was so impressed, I made my girlfriend at the time listen to it (who wasn’t a fan of punk… but still has seen Bigwig more than me, fucking figures) and even she loved it.  Seven years later, Wyoming’s Teenage Bottlerocket return with their […]
