Night one of Punk Rock Bowling presented the first set of challenging decisions. The club show lineups seem to be getting better year after year, sometimes rivaling the actual festival lineup. After strategizing with the DyingScene crew, I B-lined it to the LV Country Saloon to check out the remainder of the FU’s’ set, Street Dogs, and 7 Seconds. Street Dogs played one of the better sets I have seen in awhile, and I was stoked – Punk Rock Bowling had officially began.
No time to reflect though, for as soon as I got my 7 Seconds shots, I ran over to the Fremont Country Club to catch the legendary GBH. Infa-Riot and Abrasive Wheels had opened up for the Brits, but since I had seen them two days before in San Francisco, I opted to see the Boston boys instead.
Other bands forced to miss that night included Manic Hispanic, Me First and The Gimme Gimmes, Anti-Social, The Applicators, and Evacuate. Always a cost-benefit analysis, and there would be many more tough decisions to come over the weekend.
