The Proletariat To Play The Bowery Electric in NYC

Proletariat US BoweryThe Proletariat tapped into the high energy hardcore punk swirling around them and infused it with art-punk excitement, by the time that their classic debut, Soma Holiday, was released in 1983 their intelligent anger had become a lifeline to many suburban American rejects, young people who knew that life under Reagan wasn’t right and right now The Proletariat are more relevant than ever. The Proletariat reunited for a series of shows in the Fall of 2016 and Spring 2017 playing to full houses and getting rave reviews for their incendiary live show, and on Saturday November 4th The Proletariat will play a headline show at The Bowery Electric in New York City .
