Balls Out

The Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival rolls into town


Normally, Vegas kingpins are found at the club, surrounded by armadas of models and bottles.

But the other kind rule the hardwood of the alley. And now Vegas is taking the game to another level on Memorial Day weekend at the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival.
In addition to bowling, dozens of bands from FLAG (featuring original members of punk legends Black Flag) to the garage-rocking Detroit Cobras will rock a main outdoor stage downtown in addition to local club shows.
It's all just background music for your crew of four to hit alleys decked out in Vegas' signature sex, drugs, and rock n' roll -- plus endless cocktails, loud punk music, and cash prizes tallying more than $15,000.
Fingers sore? Try your hand at the punk rock poker/Texas Hold ‘Em tournament, or go soak up the sun at various hotel pool parties surrounding the event.
Before you go, don’t forget to get up on stage yourself to rock some live punk karaoke.

Just be sure to channel the one and only Ernie McCracken.
