THIS EVENT IS ALL AGES
In 2006, after releasing six albums on Lookout!, the band rescinded their master rights from the label, citing breach of contract over unpaid royalties. Later that year they signed with Asian Man Records and released a new album entitled “Munki Brain”, and this year will see the release of their latest pop punk opus, “Back To The Basement”.
The Apers are a Dutch pop punk band who formed in Rotterdam in 1996. They have released their albums on Stardumb Records, apart from the 2007 album Reanimate My Heart, which was released by Sonic Rendezvous Records in Europe, and Insubordination Records in the USA. They have played about 700 shows all over Europe and the USA. The band is often compared to Screeching Weasel, not lastly because of frontman Kevin Aper’s snotty vocal delivery, reminiscent of Ben Weasel.
A South Jersey shore based pogo-bubblegum-Ramones-core trio that weighs in excess of 800 pounds. We love The Queers, Sloppy Seconds, Screeching Weasel, Groovie Ghoulies, Lovegutter, Lillingtons, and MC Chris. In our spare time we watch Godzilla flicks, eat ice cream, and play video games. Their interests include a love of touring and entertaining people.
