Tonight: The Avett Brothers, Tomorrow: G.Love & Special Sauce and more

22 Jul

Holy concerts!  Vegas is stacked this weekend with a ton of great shows.  For me, it’s simple; I’ve been waiting a while to see The Avett Brothers and they are the Friday night selection.  Tomorrow, I can’t stray from one of my favorite artists, G. Love.  I’m starting to lose count on how many of his shows I’ve been to and if his performance is anything like it was at Bonnaroo, oh man are we in for a treat.  Both are performing at the Silverton inside Veil which is almost as intimate of a venue as you can get in Vegas.

Also on Saturday, Queens Of The Stone Age play Cosmopolitan, Soundgarden is back and rocks out at The Joint, INXS is at Pearl at Palms and local jam band about to make it big, Moksha is at House of Blues.

Revisited: Brett Dennen and DAWES – 6 23 11 – Las Vegas

24 Jun

Last night was one of those concerts you really appreciate, intimate venue and musicians who you could tell were genuinely having fun.  Plus the venue, Veil at the Silverton, is a really great place in Vegas to catch a show.

I was super excited not only to see Brett Dennen in concert once again but also the opening act DAWES and let’s just say neither disappointed.  DAWES ripped through a 45 minute set playing a handful of songs off their new album Nothing Is Wrong, which came out two weeks ago, and work off their debut album North Hills including the crowd favorite “When My Time Comes.”  Two little side notes, last night bassist Wylie Gelber could have been mistaken for the Treme character Sonny played by Michiel Huisman and please if you haven’t already, check out Taylor Goldsmith’s side project Middle Brother which I still can’t get enough of.

A quarter after 9 p.m. Dennen took the stage in Las Vegas for the first time.  He definitely had the crowd dancing throughout while jamming on both his acoustic and electric guitars to deliver a 90 minute set that spanned his catalog and also included a couple sing-a-longs.  As expected, he performed a lot of new material off his latest disc, Loverboy including “Dancing at a Funeral,” “Comeback Kid,” and “Sydney (I’ll Come Running).” The highlight of the show however was the four song encore which began with Dennen playing “Heaven” and “Ain’t No Reason” acoustically before being joined by his band and DAWES for a rocking cover of Steve Miller Band’s “Swingtown.”  Closing with “Blessed” the song that put him on the musical map was a perfect way to cap the night.

Brett Dennen – Las Vegas – TONIGHT!

23 Jun

After a couple months of anticipation I am excited that Brett Dennen rolls into Las Vegas tonight and takes the stage over at the Silverton.  I’ve seen Brett Dennen perform a handful of times but never as the headliner so definitely interested to see how he stretches the set from the usual opener time of 45 minutes.  Currently in support of his new disc Loverboy, a disc that I am addicted to, Dennen should run the gamut and blend a nice mix of old with the new .  It should be a great show and tickets are only $15 which means any music lover would be foolish to miss this.  An added bonus, DAWES is opening.
