Soon, Bobby's Place is hosting yet another collection of local and regional punk music for your listening pleasure.

Headlining the show is Erie’s own Sonic Medusa, whose sound could be better described as “punk rock ‘n’ roll,” with songs like “Automatic” making use of traditional blues riffs that are so often found in classic rock.

From Pittsburgh come The Cheats. Like Sonic Medusa, The Cheats create their sound by mixing old school punk styles and straightforward rock ‘n’ roll. Songs like “Better Than the Rest” and “White Knuckle Ride” have clear influences from bands such as Social Distortion and early Green Day.

Also from Pittsburgh – and returning to Erie for the first time since the release show for their album Scraping By at Basement Transmissions in February – are The Scratch n’ Sniffs, whose fast-paced skatepunk style is reminiscent of bands like Lagwagon and NOFX.

When this many punk bands congregate in one place, don’t expect to go home without something proving you were there.

Opening the show are We Hit the Fan, and Johnny Shambles & the Midnight Terror, two garage rock groups from right here in Erie.

When this many punk bands congregate in one place, don’t expect to go home without something proving you were there. Whether it’s merch from the bands, clothes sticky from spilled booze, or cuts and bruises from the mosh pit, it’s up to you. 

9 p.m. // $3 // 1202 W. 18th St. // facebook.com/events/1574108592900653/
