Las Vegas' new Punk Rock Museum, spearheaded by Fat Mike of NOFX, has pushed its opening back to April 1. The museum's bar, The Triple Down, named after The Triple Rock and the Double Down, will open at the same time. Other exhibits will include the "Jam Room," where visitors can play instruments previously owned by punk musicians, including Chris Shiflett (No Use For A Name, Foo Fighters, Me First and The Gimme Gimmes), whose green guitar from the back cover of the Gimme Gimmes' 2003 album Take a Break is among those on display. Pete Koller's white ESP Viper will be there, as well.
