Devo, The Damned
Punk Rock Bowling, Las Vegas (View the full slideshow.)
May 25, 2013
The Punk Rock Bowling Music Festival had a strong start, though some bands like Swingin' Utters (who bowled today as "Swingin' Gutters") had to rush to the festival after the bowling tournament ended around 6 p.m. This was problematic for people like me, who grabbed a bite to eat between the bowling tournament at Sam's Town and the festival at Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas.
A couple of years ago, I described Punk Rock Bowling as having a lineup reminiscent of the glory days of Warped Tour. This is my first year at Punk Rock Bowling, and I must say out of all of the other festivals I've been to, the best way to describe it is, in fact, as a less sucky version of Warped Tour.
