Punk Rock Bowling: Day Three – Plaza Pool Party with Booze and Glory and Sniper 66

The pool parties of Punk Rock Bowling are some of my favorite events of the weekend to attend. They’re a great place to meet old friends and new, relax in the water, and drink some shitty, overpriced beer that gets warm in an instant. Last year I stayed on the 7th floor of the Plaza, which was a quick roll out of bed from the pool. This year, we were a bit further at the Fremont, but the early afternoon walked allowed time for the obligatory liquid breakfast. Both Sniper 66 and Booze & Glory had played sets earlier in the weekend (main stage and Saturday club show respectively), so it was interesting to see new vs overlapping material.

Sniper 66 is in that group of Austin punks that just rocks. They’ve got great vocals, driving drums, killer bass, and ripping guitar that got the crowd of swimmers, bathers, and drunks alike dancing in a slippery fury.

Booze & Glory played a couple of the same songs from Saturday night, but hell, that was two days before….who can remember all that?! Not the crowd, as they were begging for more after every song. The band’s merch table sold out of product before the band even took to the stage – a testament to their popularity. I wish I could have stayed for the entire set, but I had to get to the main stage to catch our friends in Texas punk band Avenue Rockers.

Check out shots from Sniper 66 and Booze & Glory’s pool party photos below.
