Resurrected at Punk Rock Bowling 2018
Backstage Bar & Billiards, Las Vegas – Saturday, May 26, 2018
I heard a lot of grumblings about the Dead Boys show at Backstage Bar & Billiards at this year’s Punk Rock Bowling club series. And, as a longtime Dead Boys fan, I understand the fear, the reality that this show could destroy your fantasy Dead Boys appearance. Stiv throwing himself off the stage, belt around his neck, in a reckless show of dysfunctional self-pity in the seemingly true hope that this will be the show that kills him. How do you find a stand-in for the energy and charisma of someone who truly does not give a shit? A true punk from before the days of big festival shows and sponsored record tours.
