Happy Hour Performance: The Hooligans from 6:00-8:00p.m.

Formed in 1996, Cleveland punk rock band The Hooligans made their mark during the burgeoning third wave of punk rock in the mid to late 1990’s. Known for fast and high energy performances, The Hooligans take influence from early hardcore bands like the Germs, TSOL and Social Distortion to more pop oriented groups like The Ramones and Screeching Weasel. The reunited lineup features original vocalist Billy “Hooligan” Somerville and original drummer Joey “Cypher” Kleinhenz, along with the addition of bassist Ed Sotelo (formerly The Conservatives) and guitarist Mike Layton (Pathetic, Jurassic Punk).
