    Default Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival

    https://punkrockbowling.com/



    I posted this in the Vegas thread but that doesn't get much use. This years lineup looks pretty good so far and they are still going to add another handful of shows.

    Cool that they got Bill Stevenson playing with Flag, but dammit, it's not Black Flag without Ginn. And honestly, they're going to ignore a vast majority of Black Flag's music, including some of the best work they did (the My War/In My Head/Slip It In tracks). I'm super glad that they're doing stuff again because that music should not be ignored, I just wish there was a way to get the real band together again.

    Best would be the 1982 lineup playing again, with Rollins, Dez Cadena and Greg Ginn on guitars, Dukowski on bass and Chuck Biscuits on drums. They never released anything, but the demos from that period confirm that was the best Black Flag that ever existed.

    Hmmmm this is super tempting actually. Great line up overall. I wonder if all the other bands to fill up the whole three days will be total garbage.

    Dude, you'd probably also like a ton of the Damned's work. They were all over the place and lots of it was really great. Try Machine Gun Etiquette.

    Yep, the Damned were one of my favorite bands for a while. Subhumans should really be listened to as well.

    This looks pretty good to me, I was reading about the bowling, seems like too much hassle, I would just go for the music.

    If the board has taught me anything, it's to not listen to Devin when he says a band is not worth listening to.

    Subhumans were a ton of fun when I saw them as a teenager. I haven't listened to them in many many years and even then not very extensively but they're definitely better than most of the bands you see filling up Hot Topic issued leather jackets.

    Subhumans are certainly more deserving than the dreck that is The Casualties.

    Holy shit. This line up is actually pretty damn great. Bellingham usually has insanely cheap flights to Vegas too... I am tempted by this.

    I'll admit, I'm pretty damn tempted. There are some incredibly cheap hotels in Vegas too, so it could be very doable.

    Is this on the strip? Or elsewhere in Vegas? Im not sure what counts as "Downtown Las Vegas."
