Just a few days away from Labor Day Weekend and I can’t wait for the influx of music and world renowned DJs to invade Las Vegas. One show in particular to look forward to on Saturday, September 3, Tiesto In Concert over at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel. It’s a far cry from Tiesto performing in a normal club atmosphere; he takes over one of the best live music venues in all of Las Vegas.

If you are in Vegas you probably should make your way to The Cosmopolitan tonight as The Naked and Famous are playing out at The Boulevard Pool at 9 p.m. I saw them perform out at Lollapalooza and damn, did they put on one heck of a show. If you’ve never heard of The Naked & Famous, now’s your chance to get up close and personal with the group from Down Under. I honestly don’t think people realize how lucky those of us who live in Las Vegas are to get bands like this to perform right in our backyard. Hope to see you tonight!
I’m enamored with NewVillager’s self titled album that dropped earlier this month. And to be completely honest, I have no idea why but I seriously cannot stop listening to it. Perhaps it is the vocals in general that are pushed so gracefully or maybe it is the playful harmonies that will easily bring a smile to your face. Courtesy of multi-instrumentalists Ben Bromley and Ross Simonini, NewVillager’s debut album has it all, from quirky guitars and power synths to flat out rhythm that will get that beat going inside of you.
As for my favorite track so far, “Upholder.”
If you are a fan of Empire of the Sun, MGMT and CULTS, you will definitely dig NewVillager.
One week away from today begins Labor Day Weekend music mayhem in Las Vegas and I can tell you I’ll be visiting one of my favorite spots, Wet Republic! Between MDW and LDW I’ve spent my fare share of holiday weekends (and birthdays) at this pool and always have the best time. From Swedish House Mafia and Deadmau5 to Afrojack and David Guetta, you name the DJ and chances are good they’ve performed at Wet Republic. This LDW brings a solid four day line-up (see below) but I’m actually most excited for daytime partying on Sunday because of Avicii and Sultan & Ned Shepard spinning the weekly F*** Me I’m Famous party. Plus I still can’t get Avicii’s “Fade Into Darkness” out of my head.
Check it out, here’s a little preview of what you can expect tonight at The Yard at The Cosmopolitan when Walk The Moon takes the stage.
9 p.m. show time and it’s FREE!
I caught up with the guys at Lollapalooza and here’s what they had to say.

The Dead last toured in 2009. “There was certainly personal tension on that tour,” said Hart. “I mean, there were people that didn’t get along. And there were musical differences. But nothing that couldn’t be negotiated. I mean, there are differences in any family. But I didn’t skip a beat. I’ve been in very interesting projects over the past few years and I have absolutely no inclination to join Furthur. Bob’s doing just what he wants to do and so am I.”
Hart refuses to rule out the possibility of another Dead tour, though. “I would never say never,” he says. “As long as we’re above ground, there’s always a possibility. I don’t see any reason why we couldn’t do more shows someday, but right now isn’t the right time.”
