Every May, Las Vegas becomes the most punk city in the world. That’s when tens of thousands of people who love wild, rebellious, fast and loud rock-n-roll — and competitive bowling — hit up Vegas for the Punk Rock Bowling and Music Festival. This year, the festival turned 20, and celebrated with a sweet lineup, with performances from legends like Rise Against, the Mighty Mighty Bosstones, Turbonegro, Suicidal Tendencies, and the Dwarves.
Little known fact: dressing for pure, unadulterated punk sound in 100+ degree Vegas heat is an art, and it all starts with a pair of Docs. Here’s some of our favorite looks from PRB 20.
This guy got creative with some DIY jeans, patches, worn-in green 1460s and an original take on a classic mohawk.
This PRB attendee paired her vintage floral pattern 1460s (similar here) with sunflower knee tatts and a Princess Leia shirt.
This couple went for a graphic black and white look, paired with a Double Docs serving of his-and-hers 1490s and an acid yellow mohawk.
Socks plus fishnets plus a pair of well-worn and personalized 1490s.
An A+ use of color, with blue pants, a red belt and pink socks paired with the ripple sole Terry sandal — plus a conversation-starting necklace.
You can’t beat the combo of a pair of shimmery 1460s (similar pair here) with a frosty beer — especially when it’s summer in Vegas.
Punk rock in the summertime = ripped fishnets, red socks, a pair of 1490s and a Union Jack bikini top.
