For the first year in its 12-year history, the Punk Rock Bowling Tournament is extending an invitation to the general public to join industry insiders for three days of punk rock, bowling, gambling and booze.
Punk Rock Bowling 2010 is set for May 6-9 at Sunset Station Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.
May 7’s lineup features NOFX, Fu**ed Up, Youth Brigade, Teenage Bottlerocket, No Use For A Name’s Tony Sly and Stretch Marks. May 8 features Flogging Molly, Swinging Utters and Old Man Markley.
May 9’s lineup is still in the works.
Tickets will go on sale to the general public once the entire lineup has been finalized. More bands will be announced soon.
Attendees are encouraged to book rooms at Sunset Station to easily take part in all the action under one roof including shows and the bowling and Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournaments. The entire hotel has been blocked out for attendees with a special savings rate of over $200 off the published rate for the weekend. Additional rooms have been blocked out at surrounding hotels.
Punk Rock Texas Hold Em takes place May 6 at 8 p.m. The buy in is $100 plus a $20 registration fee. Attendees, who must be registered bowlers and 21+, are advised to show up early as seating will be done at random.
The price of bowling has been lowered to $200 for a four-person team. Registration is open to returning teams only until March 5. The waiting list will be open to new teams beginning March 6.
PunkRockBowling.com warns that “there will be loud punk music (real punk) being blasted at you from every angle, scantily clad competitors, a never ending cocktail waitress at your service and other untold distractions to help you with your ‘A’ game.” The tournament offers attendees over $12,000 in prize money and great sponsor donated merchandise.
