 Thors #2!
Join Punks in Vegas in celebrating four (and a half...we're bad at remembering our anniversary) years of covering the music scene in Las Vegas with an ALL-AGES acoustic show at Alternate Reality Comics!

We're happy to announce that the show will be headlined by an acoustic performance from Steady Hands, a folk/punk band from Philadelphia with Sean Huber, drummer of Modern Baseball, on vocals and guitar (that’s him singing on MoBo’s “Your Graduation”). Sean will be playing this gig as a solo artist.

FFO: Frank Turner, Gaslight Anthem, Hot Water Music

But it wouldn't be a PIV anniversary show without a few of our favorite locals on the bill.

Brock Frabbiele: https://brockf.bandcamp.com/
No Red Alice: https://noredalice.bandcamp.com/
and Eliza Battle (acoustic): https://soundcloud.com/elizabattle

Listen to all four artists on our free 4 Year comp: https://punksinvegas.bandcamp.com/album/piv4

The show is free but we’ll be accepting donations for Steady Hands so they can get back to Philly.

We'll be supplying tasty snacks that probably won't last (people love free food), so make sure you get there at 6!

AND JUST ADDED! The Zombie Dogs Food Truck / Catering will be here during this event and they even have a vegan selection! Additionally, the Very Awesome Girls LV will be doing a book drive at Alternate Reality Comics, Las Vegas! that day from 11-4pm to help a local school build up their library. So you could drop off books to shape young minds then or during the Punks in Vegas event!
