The Souls had this to say about their performance:
2009 is the 20th anniversary of The Bouncing Souls!! We’re getting ready to celebrate all year long… and just in time to get the party started is THE FEST!! We’re thinking “kick-off party” on this one!! What better place than the city of Gainesville to get it started? and what better people than our good friends in Strike Anywhere, Less Than Jake, and the No Idea family? And what better day than Halloween, our favorite holiday for a show? You never know what costumes and themes we might come up with!!!! And like any Souls party, we’ll drink a lot of cheap beer (maybe even 40’s only??) and re-live the embarrassing moments of our youth… by playing songs from 1995 and earlier! That’s right… The Good, The Bad, and The Argyle and Maniacal Laughter and maybe even a Green Ball Crew if the mood is right and the beer is wrong. Come party with us!
The event will take place on Halloween weekend, with shows taking place on 8 stages from October 31st, through November 2nd. For details on hotels, tickets and more info check the official website.
