Some cool punk bars to check out are The Double Down Saloon, the Juke Joint. The Beauty Bar has good shows sometimes. Cash for Chaos is cool store.
I actually live in So CA, but will be in LV this weekend for the Las Vegas Showdown. It's gonna be a great time. You should check it out http://www.lasvegasshakedown.com
I am excited to see some of the replies too though, because I am wanting to move back to Vegas in about 9 months, when my lease is up. Palm Springs sucks!
