Review + Gallery: Punk Rock Bowling Tournament 2016, Denver

Punk Rock Bowling Denver

One pin. That was the theme for the night: One fucking pin. For the Love of Punk founder Johnny Wilson has a competitive side. I discovered that at Crown Lanes Bowling on a pleasant Wednesday evening at Denver’s inaugural Punk Rock Bowling Tournament. That competitive side was emphatically highlighted by the one pin that kept Mr. FtLP Wilson from closing a goddamn frame. I was a little skeptical about the whole thing at first.

The Copyrights

In Carbondale there’s this thing called “Polar Bear” that happens every year in January.  I had no clue what it was and once I found out about it I had no interest in it. “Polar Bear” is a day that people wake up in the morning and start drinking for the whole day. Why do college kids need an excuse to day drink now? What the hell is wrong with this world? If you want to drink during the day …
