Tonight: @GROUPLOVE Plays Vegas For FREE

1 Nov

Ok Vegas, here is your reminder so you can’t say “I didn’t know” and miss an incredible show.  Tonight make your way to Book & Stage at The Cosmopolitan where GROUPLOVE will be performing at 10 p.m. and midnight.  Fresh off the release of their debut album, Never Trust A Happy Song, this quintuplet is a band you’re going to want to say you saw way back when.  These guys were my highlight of Lollapalooza, blowing me away more than their EP I had been listening to on repeat all summer.  Not only do they have a great sound but their story is damn cool too.  Check out what I wrote back in June for the skinny on the band.

So let’s recap, GROUPLOVE performing for FREE tonight (and tomorrow) at Book & Stage inside The Cosmopolitan at 10 p.m. and midnight. Got it? Good.  See you there!

Revisited: Last Weekend In Words and Photos

10 Oct

It was another music filled weekend in Las Vegas and I had the chance to catch shows at three of my favorite venues in town.  First up was Young The Giant at The Joint where the Cali kids rocked it and sounded fantastic during their 40 minute set.  Opening for Incubus put them in front of a great crowd and I’d say garnered them a heap of new fans.

Next up was ditching Incubus to race up the road to The Cosmopolitan to catch the Smashing Pumpkins, a band I had never seen live until Saturday night.  They sounded good but it was all new material so not hearing the hits I had grown up listening to was a disappointment but good friends and hanging out made the evening complete.

However last night was the highlight of my weekend as I ventured over the Pearl at Palms to catch the main man, Lupe Fiasco.  The Chicago MC tore through his catalog of hits including: “Words Out Of My Head,” “Show Goes On,” “All Black Everything,” “I Gotcha,” “Kick, Push,” “Go Go Gadget Flow,” “Superstar,” “Daydreammin’, “Hip-Hop Saved My Life” and a whole lot more.  The only disappointment on my end was not hearing “Paris, Tokyo,” my favorite Lupe jam.  Also Ashanti Floyd, his violinist was off the hook and really left his mark not just on me but the entire crowd.
