Heading into its 19th year, this lineup continues to impress the hell out of me. Its easy to see why punk rockers all over the world have no problem traveling to Vegas for a 4-day weekend of punk rock debauchery. The fun begins on May 26th and tickets are selling fast.
Under different circumstances, I probably would be trying to head out this year, but with another future punk rocker on the way, I will have to sit this one out.
If you’re even thinking of going, just go. I have had tons of pals who have hit up this festival over the years and I have never heard one bad thing about it.

It’s about time the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame has their induction ceremony in good ol’ Cleveland, Ohio. Seriously, why is it always in NYC when the museum is in Cleveland? It’s about time the rock n’ roll capitol holds one of the most important event of the year!
This year there are a few bands I have enjoyed throughout my life that are being nominated as possible inductees including Metallica, The Stooges, and Run-DMC. Tickets will be made available to the public for the first time ever and you can bet your sweet you-know-what I am going to try and be there.
Five of these nine nominees will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. The inductees will be announced in January 2009. Ballots will be sent to more than 500 voters, who will select artists to be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame at the 24th Annual Induction Ceremony on April 4 at historic Public Hall in Cleveland. For the first time, tickets to the ceremony will be made available to the public. Advance ticket sales for the events will be made available to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum members and then to the public.
