MxPx books two nights at Backbooth - only Florida dates


Facebook event

The band that's been trying to convince people to move to Bremerton (their hometown) since 1992, MxPx, will be playing two days in June at Backbooth with Drive-Thru Records' 1995 label stars Allister. You can catch both bands on June 17 or 18 (RSVP) (RSVP) starting at 7 p.m.

For anyone who ever collected punk comps, pumped a fist at Warped Tour or just fell for the chick magnets right from their Tooth & Nail debut Pokinatcha (or possibly when they were still known as Magnified Plaid?!), these will be essential summer shows, not to be missed. At $20 a night, hopefully not too many people will double up to prevent folks who are looking to turn out for one night only.

MxPx has been relatively quiet since releasing Plans Within Plans in 2012 and sharing their story as a documentary in 2011, Both Ends Burning. If you missed the movie, check out the trailer below:
