I’m a Jukebox Romantic! You’re just Jukebox! After The Bouncing Souls’ Stoked for Summer at Stony Pony Summer Stage in Asbury Park, N.J., I hit the afterparty at the Asbury Park Yacht Club. There’s no denying the influence The Bouncing Souls had on The Jukebox Romantics, so filling the tiny bar in Jersey with Souls fans fresh from the celebratory show sparked a perfect storm of pogoing and fast but light-hearted punk. An already energized crowd ate up the pun-filled jams in “Buried with Children” and “Breaking Rad” like a delicious cake to top off the 30th Anniversary of the Souls with reckless abandon.
