Despite it being 2017, pop punk is very much alive and well thanks to a thriving scene of young and old musicians keeping the whiny guitar-driven flame burning bright. Tomorrow night at The Orange Peel, the brash and saucy veterans of the scene Bowling For Soup will bring their pop punk party to Asheville. Openers Save Ferris will add to the night's festivities and serve as the perfect appetizer to the entree of Soup. 

Started in 1994, the Wichita Falls, Texas natives Bowling For Soup made a name for themselves by churning out infectious jams that were just as catchy as they were humorous. Lead vocalist Jaret Reddick and guitarist Chris Burney met in high school and played music together, but it wasn't until the mid-nineties that they found the other band members and would lock in their official band name. The group would go on to put out big hits like “Girl All The Bad Guys Want” and “1985,” to name a couple. 

Openers Save Ferris are a ska punk band from Orange County, California who've been in the game for two decades just like Bowling For Soup. Zany, upbeat, and fun—Save Ferris started their own label in 1996 and sold music out of the trunks of their cars. What started out DIY turned into mainstream success and before you know it everyone was “skanking” to the music. This show will be one big throwback to the early 2000's and we couldn't be happier!
