7 Seconds and More Added to Punk Rock Bowling Lineup

Today is a big day for fans of Las Vegas, punk, and/or bowling. The full lineup for the 14th Annual Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival will come out sometime today. We're guessing it's going to happen in the afternoon since three-day passes go on sale today at 1 p.m. Pacific.

Once again BYO's festival has us hanging on the edge of our seats. The record label has slowly been announcing the lineup, releasing the names of three more bands last night.

Perhaps the biggest news is hardcore punk legends 7 Seconds. Like the big Hot Water Music announcement, this is not Kevin Seconds doing the solo acoustic thing, this is the real deal.

The English Beat adds some ska flavor by appealing to rude boys with more than the radio hit "Mirror in the Bathroom."

Anthemic Sacramento punks Union Hearts also got added to the bill.

Hopefully, the Stern brothers will release the rest of the lineup soon so we can decide whether it's worth it to dish out $100 for a three-day festival in Vegas. I'm leaning toward a yes, but who knows until the rest of the bill gets announced?

If all goes well, you can buy a three-day pass today at noon Arizona time.
