Punk Rock Bowling was started back in 1999 as a way to bring the independent music community together for an annual party. It has since grown into a 4 day festival in downtown Las Vegas that brings out fans and bands alike from all over the world. Now in its 15th year, more than 8,000 punk rock music lovers flock to Las Vegas to partake in the “biggest punk rock party of the year!”
3 days and 4 nights of outdoor festivals & late night club shows overtake the Downtown Fremont East District with over 70 bands performing throughout the weekend, many special guests, reunions and rare appearances. With 1,000 punk rock bowlers competing for over $15,000 in prize money during the day, over 1,000 downtown hotel rooms, pool parties, comedy shows and a poker tournament, this is a marathon party that never stops in the City Of Sin.
This year, the initial lineup for the 15th Annual Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival will feature one of the first full performances of none other than the godfathers of west coast punk rock themselves FLAG. The group will be featuring original members Keith Morris (vocals), Chuck Dukowski (bass), Bill Stevenson (drums 1981-1985) along with SST labelmate and Descendents guitarist Stephen Egerton (guitar) performing the music of Black Flag.
Also on the bill for the very first time at PRB, will be preeminent punk band BAD RELIGION, who will be releasing their new album True North January 22nd on Epitaph Records. A free download of the new song “Fuck Off” is available HERE.
