Pennywise Is All Business At The Bash Festival Jim Lindberg And Company Fire Up Bash With Some West Coast Punk
ENGLISHTOWN, NJ –
“… It’s not often on the East Coast that we get to see West Coast bands, and one of the most anticipated was Pennywise. Pennywise was the last up prior to the headliner Rancid, and rode a wave of momentum onto the stage starting their set with “Peaceful Day” going all the way back to 1995. As Pennywise began working through their set you could sense that they were all business, no chatter from the band just banging song after banging song.
Watching Jim Lindberg work the crowd gave me a real sense of appreciation for the dedicated front man vocalist types, who can dedicate all their attention on the crowd. As I watched, you could see him at the barrier getting the crowd fired up before moving to another spot, working as only a true veteran would.
Pennywise has a very unique sound anchored by bassist Randy Bradbury, complimented by guitar slinger Fletcher Dragge who combine to deliver the layered sonics that are Pennywise. The band played a non-stop high energy set that could only be described as a musical beatdown, covering killer songs like “Fuck Authority,” Bro Hymn” and “Minor Threat” (cover). Pennywise had a great set at The Bash Festival…”
