Best Springboard for Local Musicians

punks in vegas

“Maybe not the best place in the world/ but something always brings me back,” goes the 2002 Bouncing Souls track “Punks in Vegas.” Maybe what brings them back is the passion of our local punk scene, plainly visible in the form of the all-volunteer music website the song helped to inspire. offers exhaustive coverage of local and national bands, hosts the live acoustic showcase Stripped Down Sessions that draws thousands of eyeballs on YouTube and actively stumps for every band on the local scene—from those signed to indie labels to that shitty Ramones cover band you started last week. Other music sites are casual observers of their scenes, but takes an active hand in keeping ours alive and well.
