Mike Prevatt - Las Vegas Weekly

Staff List > Staff Bio

Mike Prevatt

Mike started his journalism career at UCLA reviewing CDs and interviewing bands, less because he needed even more homework and more because it sounded like the best extracurricular activity to list on his grad school application. Two years later, he chose Las Vegas over law school (who wouldn’t?) and became the first local journalist to regularly cover DJs and clubs, on top of his usual music coverage. Since then, he’s branched out to write about pretty much everything else (though he draws the line at magic shows) and nabbed seven Nevada Press Association awards. Follow him at @mikeprevatt.
