Bowling for Soup w/ The Dollyrots
Tonight @ Shank Hall, 8 p.m.
May. 1, 2011
Perhaps no other band stretched Blink-182's pop-punk to zanier extremes than Bowling for Soup, the Texas outfit that spun whimsically nasally vocals and wacky pop culture references into chart glory on a run of novelty singles last decade, including “Girl All the Bad Guys Want,” “Almost” and “1985.” The band is touring behind its latest album, Fishin' for Woos, another collection of jokey pop-punk that only a direct-to-DVD National Lampoon's Van Wilder sequel could love.
