This spring, South Bay punk legends PENNYWISE will take over Orange County’s Garden Amp in Garden Grove, CA, to perform their first five albums in full, over two epic weekends in March.

Tickets for all shows go on sale Friday, January 14, 2022 at pennywisdom.com.
Founding guitarist Fletcherr Dragge says, “We’ve had a great time playing album shows in the past, so why not do the first 5 PW albums back-to-back in a venue that feels like a backyard party? This might kill us but at least we’ll die trying….”

Formed in the South Bay of Los Angeles—a neighborhood with a rich punk-rock history—Pennywise began in 1988. The band went on to amass an international following with their relentless touring and a melodic, high-energy sound fusing classic punk, surf punk, and blistering hardcore. Through the years, Pennywise have solidified their place in punk history with iconic songs like “Fuck Authority,” “Alien,” and “Bro Hymn” (their timeless ode to brotherhood and departed friends).
Pennywise have released 11 albums over the last three decades, including: Pennywise (1991), Unknown Road (1993), About Time (1995), Full Circle (1997), Straight Ahead(1999), Land of the Free? (2001), From the Ashes (2003), The Fuse (2005), Reason to Believe (2008), Yesterdays (2014), and Never Gonna Die (2018). Resolutely working outside the margins of the mainstream, the band has emerged as an enduringly vibrant staple on SoCal radio airwaves and the worldwide festival circuit.
