Dad Brains:
Punk Rock For Dads and the People Who Love Them
New Track (“Baby Jail”) Premiering on New Noise
California’s Dad Brains have announced plans to release their self-titled debut EP on Friday, June 16, just in time for Father’s Day Weekend.

The Oxnard/Ventura, CA-based band of punk rock dads, is comprised of ex-members of such notable punk/”Hardcore” bands as No Motiv (Vagrant Records), The Missing 23rd (Sessions Records), Creep Division (American hardcore/punk band that featured members of Good Riddance) and The F-ing Wrath.

The Briefs
Punk Rock Bowling 2018
Las Vegas – Sunday, May 27, 2018

The Briefs took the stage in the middle of the Day on Sunday and I wasn’t sure what to expect. This was my first time seeing them and as I watched Steve E. Nix walking the stage, smoking a cigarette, I was wondering how good they would actually sound. I always wonder how some people can smoke and sing, but there are a lot of vocalists that are pulling if off. As soon as the band started they were captivating. As they continued to play, I kept thinking to myself… I need to get their album, I need to get a shirt, I hope this isn’t their last song! They were great! Also, since this is Punk Rock Bowling, I actually ran into Steve E. Nix at the Golden Nugget Casino and I said “Hello”, and Steve was super down-to-earth and friendly. That always amazes me, for some reason I assume that band members are going to tell me to “piss-off”, but at this event, it’s like we are all just here to mutually appreciate great music and make friends.

D.O.A.
Punk Rock Bowling 2018
Las Vegas – Saturday, May 26, 2018

One of the best and most entertaining performances of the weekend was D.O.A. (in my opinion). As a photographer and punk rock fan, I loved every minute. These days it is quite frequent that you will see the band stand in one place, right in front of their microphone. But not D.O.A., they were all over the place. Also worth noting, was Mike Hodsall (Bass Guitar), if you didn’t get a picture of him jumping then you simply didn’t want one. He is a prime example of why I love Bass Players. Maybe it’s because they only have 4 strings, but they are typically very hard working band members. D.O.A. has 3 very active and super talented musicians, that is why their show was so great (and because they have some really good songs too)!

GBH
Punk Rock Bowling 2018
Las Vegas – Saturday, May 26, 2018

GBH are truly a great sounding band. Their performance was super tight and the crowd at Punk Rock Bowling was very responsive as they both sang along and thrashed about in the large circle pit in front of the stage. I absolutely love this band. It was one of those unique treats that you get with the Punk Rock Bowling event, when each night we ran into Scott Preece in the Golden Nugget hotel and casino. Scott is a super fun and friendly person and we all got a kick out of briefly hanging out with him and his mates.

Svetlanas
Punk Rock Bowling 2018
Las Vegas – Monday, May 28, 2018

This was the first time I have seen/heard the Svetlanas. From the first minute they took the stage I knew they were going to be spectacular. Olga (the singer) was walking around the stage and looking from person to person with her tongue in the corner of her mouth and her eyebrow cocked. It was a quirky look that said she was going to erupt.
