Punk Rock Bowling expands into Denver, CO

Late last year, it was announced that Punk Rock Bowling would be expanding outside of Las Vegas for the first time in the festival’s history. In addition to taking place in Sin City from May 26-30, June 10-12 would see PRB East taking over Asbury Park, New Jersey in 2016.

Now it has been revealed Punk Rock Bowling will be branching out even further than Jersey, with another handful of dates announced in Denver, Colorado. The initial lineup for these dates includes Millencollin, FLAG, 88 Fingers Louie, D.O.A., Buzzcocks, Anti-Nowhere League, Youth Brigade, The Briefs, and more.

Here’s what festival organizers had to say about the Denver, Colorado stop, which will take place at Summit Music Hall on June 2-4:

“Punk Rock Bowling was started back in 1999 as a way to bring the independent music community together for an annual party in Las Vegas, Nevada. That’s why it was an easy decision for Soda Jerk Presents to partner with Punk Rock Bowling to bring this incredible punk festival to Denver. Wanting to focus on creating a festival with sustainable growth and an intimate feel, it was decided to keep the festival indoors for the first year.”

3-day passes for PRB’s Denver dates are available here for the extremely reasonable price of $60. We’ll keep you posted as more bands are announced.

Neighborhood Brats are back!

After breaking up over a year ago, LA punks Neighborhood Brats have announced they are back together, and are planning to release a new album, which is due for release later this year. Vocalist Jenny Angelillo to LA Weekly about their decision to bring the band back together:

“I just can’t not make music. Without it, I feel like I’m missing a limb. Like I’m wearing tight jeans without underwear. I’m just uncomfortable, and I missed the Brats. I missed George — my best friend, bandmate and writing partner.”

Guitarist George Rager also talked about direction of the band’s new album, which will be their first since 2014′s Recovery. He says it “will have a healthy dose of Chiswick-era sounding punk, like the stuff we grew up listening to, with some California punk inspiration”, while the songs will “breathe a little more, they won’t be longer than two minutes, because that’s about my attention span.”

An Evening With The Honorable Chris Fox – Part One

From L to R: John Underwood of Dirty Kid Discount; Staff Writer AnarchoPunk; Chris Fox of Vampirates & Boss’ Daughter

Reno, Nevada gets cold as hell in the winter. So, it’s no surprise that John Underwood from the folk punk troupe Dirty Kid Discount (profiled in September’s Hidden Gems of Bandcamp) was looking to get down to SoCal to avoid the doldrums of the frigid, grey confines of The Biggest Little City in the World for a few weeks to thaw out. Thus was born The Winter West Tour, which started up in Washington state in Mid-January and worked its way down the Pacific Coast before making its way back up to Reno for the finale on February 10th. Halfway through the tour, John was joined by fellow Reno resident and frontman of the up and coming punk act, Boss’ Daughter, Chris Fox. While I don’t get paid monetarily for the (exceptional?) work I do here at the Scene, I do get compensated in other ways. Getting into shows for free is a pretty cool perk, access to the press pit is a useful benefit as well. My favorite perquisite by far though is getting to meet people I wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to.  Sometimes, through those connections, I even find people that I share so much in common with that we hit off pretty well. Such is the case with Mr. Fox and myself. After getting to know him through email for an article I was writing, we became fast friends. So needless to say, when I noticed that the boys had a scheduled stop in LA, I knew it was a “can’t miss” show for me. Check out part one of my hybrid show review/interview below in this DS Exclusive!
