Dying Scene Gallery: Punk Rock Bowling Day Three – Gogol Bordello, Stiff Little Fingers, Quicksand and more (Las Vegas 5/27/24)

I’m not saying we were hungover, but we made it down to the pool party at the beginning of Day Three and couldn’t bear to leave the shade by the bar, let alone get up front by the bands. After a little fortification we made it to the main festival in time for …

Stiff Little Fingers, original ’70s punks from Belfast who were rocking it in the overly bright sunshine…

Followed by Gogol Bordello who are fantastic live every time we’ve seen them.

From there we moved to the second “party” stage to catch Quicksand, post-hardcore from New York, new to us and and such a fascinating sound.

The headliner for the final day were Madness, but we were not getting back near the main stage, so we only have the photo at the top of this page, though hearing all the old classics was fun, even from a distance. From there we headed to Backstage Bar & Billiards on Fremont Street for a final club show:

Bad Ass are a bunch of young punks from Riverside, CA with an amazing look, and opened up the show

Up next, Die Spitz are an astonishing all-woman punk band from Austin, TX who played the party stage at the main festival earlier in the day. We were completely blown away and will be watching these ladies in future.

And finally, the Subhumans from the UK, good old hardcore and friends of ours, finished up our 2024 Punk Rock Bowling experience.
