As the 2016 Nappie Awards draw closer, this show will be a great opportunity to witness the talent of a past Nappie winner. From “Best New Band” to “Best Band Name,” The Handsome Scoundrels took home a whopping five Nappie Awards in 2012. The punk rock trio continues to spread their pop punk sounds across the Southeast and beyond as they prepare for the release of a split EP with Orlando, Florida-based Rushmore.

The Handsome Scoundrels will be providing local support for The Areolas. The punk quartet from Central Florida is a pop explosion with an underground ‘80s vibe. Ladies lend their power to the music through catchy hooks and bright punk riffs. The Areolas have spent the past year promoting their latest effort, “Get Awesome!” This release is five shots of high-energy punk that maintains the adrenalized attitude and simplistic arrangements that make punk rock so great.
