DS Photo Gallery: Teenage Bottlerocket & PEARS at Local 662 in St. Pete, FL

It had been over a year since I last broke out my camera and made my way down to St. Pete to cover a show for Dying Scene, but when I heard Teenage Bottlerocket and PEARS were coming to town, I just knew I had to dust off the ol’ camera and pretend to be an actual photographer once again. And I’m sure glad I did, because this was one hell of a show.

PEARS blasted through roughly a dozen songs with ferocious speed, taking very few breaks along the way. And though there were quite a few people who weren’t familiar the New Orleans hardcore punk act, it wasn’t long before everyone in the room became hooked on PEARS.

To put it as simply as possible, these guys are natural performers. They write great songs that sound awesome on the record, and sound even more awesome live. There aren’t too many bands who can put on a show with as much intensity as this 4-piece.

But luckily for me and everyone else in attendance, Teenage Bottlerocket is one of those bands. The Wyoming pop-punk veterans played an hour-long set of fan favorites like “Skate or Die,” “So Far Away,” “Bigger Than Kiss,” “Radio,” and “Stupid Games,” as well as a handful of songs from their brand new record Tales From Wyoming.

Usually when I see a band after they have just released a new album, there aren’t too many people who know the songs, which leads to a lot of blank stares/cell phone checking, and not a lot of singing, dancing, or just having fun.

That was not the case with Teenage Bottlerocket. The level of excitement while they played new tracks like “Dead Saturday,” “Nothing Else Matters (When I’m With You),” “Haunted House,” and “TV Set” was just as high as it was during the old fan favorites. A true testament to this band’s ability to continually write awesome music.

Teenage Bottlerocket and PEARS will be playing shows all across the south over the course of the next week. I highly recommend heading over here to see if the two bands are stopping near you, because it would be a shame if you missed such a great show!

All my shots from the show at the Local 662 in St. Pete can be seen below.
