Behind the glitz and glamor of the Strip, Las Vegas is a real city with real people. Kids graduate from high school. Women sleep on the street. People die. Soldiers come home. Sometimes Las Vegas looks like any other town in America. Here's a smattering of news and feature work that has occupied my days the first half of this year. It's the regular newspaper stuff, and a reminder that it's not just Strippers and Elvis impersonators in this town.

When I photograph concerts, I am often more interested in the crowds than the musicians. With punk rock concerts, that is even more true. These photos are from the Punk Rock Bowling & Music Festival in downtown Las Vegas on Memorial Day. The music was loud and obnoxious. The scene was dirty, gritty, and hot. The crowd was super aggressive. It was perfect.
