Flying from New York to Las Vegas takes about nine hours with a connecting flight. For a weekend of drinking, gambling and punk rock with the Punknews.org team, it was well worth it. Arriving to the Sunset Station hotel and casino in the afternoon, you could immediately notice an abundance of tattoo.
Flying from New York to Las Vegas takes about nine hours with a connecting flight. For a weekend of drinking, gambling and punk rock with the Punknews.org team, it was well worth it. Arriving to the Sunset Station hotel and casino in the afternoon, you could immediately notice an abundance of tattoos, piercings and band shirts.
NOFX closed out the night, taking the stage around 10:00. Fat Mike introduced the band, exclaiming "I've been doing cocaine for three weeks...and now I don't even feel like playing!" He then singled out some fans who had brought young (under 10 years old) children with them, describing sex acts out of spite and calling them bad parents. Seriously, though, who would think bringing their kids to a NOFX show would be a good parenting idea? After going through "Seeing Double at the Triple Rock" and "Leave It Alone," Fat Mike warned the crowd "whatever happens in Henderson...ends up on Punknews." Yes, Mike. Yes it does. After dedicating a short version of "Fuck the Kids" to the kids in the crowd, they ripped into a blazing-fast performance of "Linoleum," just like it should be. With the one and only in attendance that weekend, they played "She's Nubs," ending it with "she sure does know how to suck a cock." They played a joke song in the middle of their set in which they literally told jokes back and forth across the stage while they played. "What do you get when you cross a Mexican with an octopus? I don't know, but you should see that fucker pick up strawberries!" "What do you get when you cross a Jew with an octopus? I don't know, but you should see that fucker pick up pennies!" After trading a few more jokes at the risk of sounding racist, they cautioned "Racism is not normally funny."
After announcing a two-minute "encore" break, they took the stage once more, playing "Bob" and an extended version of "Theme from a NOFX Album" to close out the night of punk rock.
