I may as well start my weekend officially on Thursday with the amount of live music in Las Vegas.
Tonight it is straight over to The Cosmopolitan to check out The Hives. I’ve been waiting YEARS to see these guys live and finally I get the chance! Plus it’s the anniversary party for Vegas Rated, the magazine that I contribute music stories to. Fiesta Fiesta!
While I’m super stoked for The Hives show, I’m beyond excited about Friday night where Mariachi El Bronx, takes to Book & Stage at 10:30 p.m. for an amazing kickoff to Mexican Independence Day Weekend in Las Vegas. If you have never heard of Mariachi El Bronx, trust me when I say you don’t want to miss this show. If you have heard of Mariachi El Bronx but never seen them live, this is a show you don’t want to miss. If you know their story and the original band, The Bronx, you definitely want to see this show. I had the pleasure of finally getting to see them this past June at Bonnaroo and it was easily one of my favorite shows of the festival. I’m expecting this to be the highlight of my weekend.
I know, I know I just proclaimed my weekend to be taken over by Mariachi El Bronx but on Saturday my friends Sonny and Chris of Rock n’ Roll Wine host their 7th Wine Amplified event over at Mandalay Bay Beach with music by Young The Giant and Vintage Trouble. Even cooler, my brother will be pouring his Labor Wines at the event! So I’ve got family, two great wines from my brother, my friends events and two bands I love performing – yeah you could say this is going to be a fun evening.
And that is why my weekend is starting tonight!
