It's impossible to take good-time, Grammy-nominated Texas pop rockers Bowling for Soup seriously.
And that's exactly the way the self-proclaimed "drunk rockers" who play Headliners Monday want it.
With a knack for catchy hooks, the band had a sizeable hit earlier this year with "1985," an ode to the sort-of glory days of the '80s that is equal parts ironic humor and nostalgia.
The titles of their last two albums pretty much say it all: "A Hangover You Don't Deserve" in 2004, and "Drunk Enough to Dance" in 2002.
Also on the bill are Cherry Monroe, a band that takes its prime influences from the glam-rock movement that produced T. Rex and David Bowie. The members of the five-man band are from Youngstown and Pittsburgh and they've been playing together since 2004.
