Punk Rock Bowling Vegas: Night Two – Anti-Nowhere League, Leftover Crack, The Briefs, Lower Class Brats

Saturday after FLAG‘s set, there was little time to relax before the incredible list of club shows was underway. I ran my ass off Saturday night, catching four bands at three different venues. It was better this year though, with the removal of The Bunkhouse as one of the venues because that place is far away from the rest of the activities. Backstage Bar and Billiards, Las Vegas Country Saloon, and Fremont Country Club were among the list, and if the Beauty Bar had their shit together, I would have added Agent Orange to the list.

First on the list of club shows was Lower Class Brats. I missed their pool party earlier in the day due to bowling activities, and it had been years since I had seen the psychos, so I was super excited to get to LVCS in time to catch the beginning of their set. I was on quite the time constraint due to other shows happening at the same time, so I felt like Clark Griswold in National Lampoon’s – squeezing in as much as I could in the time I had. This effort also made it so I missed LCB’s performance of “Psycho”, one of my favorites. You can’t be everywhere at once, and although I missed that song, I was front and center for Leftover Crack’s “Gang Control” – any song that says “Fuck The Police” is alright in my book.

Leftover Crack is one of those bands that’s in the same group as Subhumans or Descendents for me. I have to manage my time between shooting, singing, and thrashing, which I often don’t have the opportunity to do all three. This is the exception, as I was able to drop the gear for a bit and swing around. Lately, Stza and crew has been adding keyboard to their live performances, with Scott taking breaks to figure out the keys. Additionally, the last two times I’ve seen them there has been guest female vocals which adds a different element to their trademark sound.

Alas, I reluctantly left the LOC concert to make it to The Briefs, of which I missed the first three songs. Thankfully, the security at Backstage Bar was pretty cool and let me shoot for a little bit anyway. I’m glad they did because the band is just so animated when they perform. “I’m poor and I’m weird baby, you got no time for me”. I love The Briefs’ sound and style and I just wish they would put out more new material.

The final band on my list for the night was the incredible, long-lasting Anti-Nowhere League. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I think Animal has found the fountain of youth because over the years as well all get more wrinkles and scars, it seems like he is getting younger and more youthful. We need to figure out his secret. ANWL was a band that was crucial in my punk upbringing and it’s a band that never disappoints. It’s a ‘no-frills’ approach to their music and style that sets them apart from other UK bands of the same era and I see no end in sight for these old punks.

Have a look at all the photos from Saturday’s club shows below, and stay tuned for more photos from Punk Rock Bowling Las Vegas in the following days.
