Mike Prevatt

Mike Prevatt turned his passion for rock 'n' roll and dance beats into an actual job during his stint as music editor of the Daily Bruin while attending UCLA, and then as arts and entertainment editor at Las Vegas CityLife, where he worked for 11 years before becoming nightlife editor of Las Vegas Weekly. Mike has won five Nevada Press Association awards and has been published in outlets like SPIN, New Music Express, URB and Desert Companion. He will outlast any househead on the dancefloor, bring up team sports at a gay bar and fulfill his goal of riding every roller coaster in America.
