Las Vegas’ Punk Rock Museum could be your wedding venue

The Punk Rock Museum has launched a new wedding offering, as well as the exciting showcase of two new exhibits.

The museum recently debuted its wedding chapel, available for anyone seeking to have a uniquely punk wedding at the museum including packages such as ‘Partners In Crime’ and ‘Till Death Do Us Punk’.

From 28 April, the museum will also celebrate two temporary exhibits featuring the stunning images of respected photographers Angela Boatwright and Rikki Ercoli.

Both photographers will be present to discuss their work with invited guests and museum ticketholders.

“Los Punks: The Backyard Punk Scenes in East Los Angeles and South Central, 2013-2016” – Angela Boatwright

Boatwright picked up a camera at age 14 and hasn’t stopped shooting since, cutting her teeth photographing her skater friends, she quickly began shooting live punk, metal and hardcore bands, including photographing Kurt Cobain in a closet-sized venue in 1991.

Her work has appeared in a wide array of publications including New York Magazine, Vice, Nylon, Vibe and Dazed and Confused, as well as in books such as “Vice Photo Book,” and most recently, the best-selling “Contact High,” featuring her ground-breaking 2008 photographs of Nicki Minaj.

Boatwright is currently compiling an extensive photo book featuring the backyard punk scene in East LA and South Central, equally illuminated by works from the punks within the scene.

A showcase representative to reaction. Reaction to normalcy, apathy, sexuality, popularity, politics, fashion and most of all reaction to music. In the late 1970s, Rikki Ercoli found himself in the midst of the burgeoning punk scene and dove headfirst into photography.

Shooting bands like The Clash and Sid Vicious as they toured the Philadelphia tri-state area, Ercoli captured the moment when their caustic expression triggered America’s disgruntled youth into cultural rebellion.

The exhibit is a visual feast of black and white portraits capturing some of the most notorious rock and roll icons from the late 1970s and early 1980s, including Sid Vicious, Misfits, Blondie, The Ramones, The Clash, Circle Jerks, Bauhaus, Siouxsie and the Banshees, The Dead Boys, Dead Kennedys, The Exploited, GBH, Killing Joke, X, Richard Hell, Lydia Lunch and more. The exhibit currently on display at The Punk Rock Museum also includes a photo of Ercoli by Andy Warhol.
