Hermosa Beach punk band Pennywise starts to heal
Relationships can be difficult. Being in a band is no different. And so it is that locally beloved Hermosa Beach punk quartet Pennywise had to take a few giant leaps backward, indulge in some serious reflection, as well as sessions of honest and at times painful communication, and swallow a lot of pride. That's what it took to bring these four strong personalities back to the stage after nearly four acrimonious years apart.
It was just before Halloween when Pennywise dropped by KROQ's Kevin & Bean morning show to excitedly share that vocalist Jim Lindberg had returned and that the quartet would celebrate its reunion – and its 25th anniversary – with two shows (tonight and Saturday) at the Hollywood Palladium.
