    Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino + Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival Announce Lineup for Exclusive Pool Party Concerts

    * Early Access Opportunity For Downtown Grand Hotel Guests *
    LAS VEGAS (April 12, 2019) – Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival and Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino have joined forces to create a huge splash with this years FREE pool party concert series.

Showcasing more than 35,000 square feet of entertainment space complete with a sparkling infinity pool, restaurant and bar, and picturesque views of the downtown skyline Citrus will welcome headliners H20, The Pietasters, and Sloppy Seconds over Memorial Day Weekend May 25 – 27.
    We have never played any pool party’s before in our 25-year career,” said lead vocalist Toby Morse of H2O. That really makes zero sense considering we are ‘The Water Boys’ of hardcore. We are very excited and hope for many stage dives & cannonballs in the pool pit!”
    “We are thrilled to partner with Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival and welcome festivalgoers to our exclusive pool parties to kick off each day,” said Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino Vice President and Managing Director John Culetsu. “This festival experience is all about creating moments that will live with guests well beyond the weekend and these three concerts, paired with our total property experience, aim to do just that.”

These wristbands are good for priority early access opportunity at 9:00 a.m. to the daily pool parties. Public access for non-guests will take place at 11:00 am until capacity is reached.

    Music eh!

    Everyday I get at least 5 emails about new Canadian artists, bands, concerts etc. Sometimes it takes me a while to listen to all the music in order for me to give a proper review, as a result I’ve deprived you of some goodness. Yes, I know, I’m sorry. But let’s be honest, everybody has different tastes in music so it doesn’t really matter what I think right? Sometimes people like the same music, sometimes they don’t. I listen to ALL kinds of music, anything that moves me or gives me that tingly feeling of excitement is good with me. I’d rather share the music, video etc with you when I receive it that way we can all take it in together, as well as give feedback. So in order to show my appreciation to all the people that have reached out to me; I’m introducing a new music segment called “Music eh!” Feel free to recommend a different title, but for now it is what it is 🙂

    The segment will feature links to exclusive downloads, concerts, new artists, bands… pretty much every thing that is, the Canadian music industry. Again feel free to comment and let us know what you think as it’s a good way to give the artists feedback, and gives us a chance to engage in a little conversation.

    peace, love and health
