THE BUNKHOUSE SALOON ANNOUNCES

JUNE ENTERTAINMENT LINEUP

 

LAS VEGAS – Recently named “Best Local/Alternative Music Venue” in the Review-Journal’s 2015 Best of Las Vegas awards, The Bunkhouse Saloon, located at 124 South 11th St., has announced their June entertainment lineup. A historic landmark in the Downtown Las Vegas neighborhood, the venue has earned a reputation as one of the Valley’s best places to experience live music since the 1950s. The Bunkhouse Saloon offers a modern take on the classic dive bar, combining a casual neighborhood tavern atmosphere with a progressive focus on intimate shows and top-of-the-line live production. Featured June events are as follows:

 

Twin Peaks with Modern Vices

Date: Tuesday, June 2

Doors Open: 8 p.m.

Admission Cost: $10 advance tickets, $12 day of show

Event Info: Twin Peaks’ sound is a fusion of “60s garage rock” and a modern garage-punk sound, with influences ranging from the Pixies, and Tame Impala to the Beatles, the Rolling Stones and the Beach Boys. Jayson Greene of Pitchfork states that the band “…spends half of their time as a chugging power chord factory and half as a winsome power-pop band.” Opening for the band will be the self-proclaimed dirty doo-wop group, Modern Vices.

 

The Rentals with Rey Pila and Radiation City

Date: Wednesday, June 3

Doors Open: 8 p.m.

Admission Cost: $15 advance tickets, $18 day of show

Event Info: Fronted by former Weezer bassist Matt Sharp, The Rentals’ first single, “Friends of P.,” peaked at number seven on Billboard’s Modern Rock chart and also held a spot on the Billboard Hot 100. The band is currently on a North American tour with Rey Pila and Radiation City in support of their 2014 full-length album, “Lost In Alphaville,” which Jim DeRogatis for WBEZ says is, “a wonderfully endearing and otherworldly future-past melancholy vibe, and a bevy of memorable and infectious hooks.”

 

Supersuckers

Date: Tuesday, June 9

Doors Open: 8 p.m.

Admission Cost: $8 advance tickets, $10 day of show

Event Info: The garage-punk party band Supersuckers got their start back in 1988, and have since played thousands of shows at venues ranging from bars to internationally recognized music festivals including Woodstock and SXSW. When asked about the story behind Supersuckers, guitarist and vocalist Eddie Spaghetti states that, “I truly believe that a band is defined by their limitations, that what they can't or won't do is just as important as what they can do. I guess that, in this era of pre-fabricated, put-together-to-have-a-hit bands, we're kind of an aberration and I gotta tell ya that that makes us smile a little every day.” Believing in the importance of genuine, honest music, the band decided to start their own record label in 2001, explaining that, “Having our own label gives us the freedom to make more of our music available to [our audience] without the hassles of ‘the middle-man’ worrying about things like ‘marketing’ or ‘demographics’.” Supersuckers has performed live on “The Tonight Show” with Jay Leno as backup to Willie Nelson, and has toured with legendary groups including Pearl Jam, Rolling Stones and Aerosmith.

 

 

The Life and Times

Date: Tuesday, June 16

Doors Open: 8 p.m.

Admission Cost: $8 advance tickets, $10 day of show

Event Info: The Life and Times will bring their “Last of the Bees” tour to Bunkhouse. Generally recognized as a “rock band,” the group consistently pushes the boundaries in each of their songs, incorporating various musical influences which make them almost impossible to categorize. Since August 2005, the band has played over 200 shows in support of their debut full-length album, “Suburban Hymns,” and has toured with acts including Murder by Death, Mono, Engine Down and William Elliot Whitmore. Fueled by passion and a love for making music, vocalist Allen Epley states that the band, “…wanted to make the kind of record that a big-name band with a lot of money might make, except we don't have any money. But we said what the hell and decided to do it anyway by going in debt and built our own studio and recorded it in my basement.”

 

Tuxedo

Date: Saturday, June 27

Doors Open: 8 p.m.

Admission Cost: $25

Event Info: Tuxedo was born from the dynamic duo of Grammy-nominated producers Mayer Hawthorne and Jake One. Their collaboration as Tuxedo began with an exchange of mixtapes in 2006, and Jake One explains that, “They had a lot of the same songs on them and I couldn’t believe there was another person in the world that cared about this style of music.” In between Mayer’s solo albums and touring with international sensations such as Bruno Mars, Foster The People and the late Amy Winehouse; and Jake’s productions for artists including Drake, Fun., and J. Cole; the duo was able to release their debut album as Tuxedo in March 2015. The entire record is fundamentally a combination of that classic 1980s boogie sound with a trace of 1990s west coast gangsta funk. Mayer Hawthorne explains, “We wanted the feeling of those old 80s records but we wanted to make sure it still competed with the modern stuff in the club.”

ABOUT CORNER BAR MANAGEMENT GROUP

Corner Bar Management Group was founded in December 2012 with the opening of Commonwealth, a pre-Prohibition cocktail style bar on 525 E. Fremont St. in Downtown Las Vegas. The bar was quickly recognized as one of “7 New Reasons to Hit Las Vegas” by the New York Post and its speak-easy, The Laundry Room, was recently named “Best Cocktail Bar of the Year” by Nightclub & Bar and among Playboy’s “Best Bars of 2014.” Shortly following the success of Commonwealth, Park on Fremont opened in March 2013 down the block at 506 E. Fremont St. A popular neighborhood bar and restaurant, Park on Fremont is widely known for its distinctive, whimsical design, handcrafted cocktails and laid back menu.

In spring 2015, Corner Bar opened Itsy Bitsy: Ramen and Whisky, a Japanese-style tavern at the base of The Ogden in Downtown Las Vegas. The group also recently acquired a share of The Bunkhouse Saloon, which was named “Best Local/Alternative Music Venue” in the 2015 Best of Las Vegas awards, and Inspire Theater, located at the corner of Fremont Street and Las Vegas Blvd. All of Corner Bar’s projects are art, mixology and design forward.
