Teenage Bottlerocket returns to Orlando to deliver some catchy tunes about heartache, longing and falling hopelessly in love. With poppy, energetic melodies packed with angst and romantic determination, it’ll incite a sweaty pit (likely fueled early on by local heroes the Attack). Heavily influenced by the Lillingtons and Screeching Weasel, Teenage Bottlerocket has been around since 2001 and just dropped their sixth album, Tales From Wyoming
, on Rise Records at the end of last month. (It was produced by punk legend Bill Stevenson at the Blasting Room - pretty appropriate for the rocket men.) That’s serious, but these pop-punk kings have been more about having a good time for the past 14 years. So expect new songs and good times at the show.
