  • Las Vegas concerts for Black Hat & DEFCON time frame

    Some out of town folks hit me up asking about concerts around town during this year's Black Hat & DEFCON. I took a quick look on http://pollstar.com/ and http://www.jambase.com/ for what might be interesting. YMMV, though I thought sharing is caring.

    Fri 07/27/07 Violent Femmes Hard Rock Hotel & Casino
    Fri 07/27/07 Jonny Lang House Of Blues
    Sat 07/28/07 Tesla House Of Blues
    Sat 07/28/07 Rush MGM Grand Garden Arena
    Wed 08/01/07 John Lee Hooker Jr. Santa Fe Station Hotel & Casino
    Thu 08/02/07 John Lee Hooker Jr. Boulder Station Hotel & Casino
    Fri 08/03/07 Godsmack The Pearl Concert Theater At Palms
    Sat 08/04/07 Buckcherry, Hinder, Papa Roach The Pearl Concert Theater At Palms
    Sun 08/05/07 Against All Authority, Reel Big Fish / Less Than Jake, Streetlight Manifesto House Of Blues
    Mon 08/06/07 "Sounds Of The Underground": Amon Amarth, Chimaira, Every Time I Die, GWAR, Heavy Heavy Low Low, Job For A Cowboy, Necro, Shadows Fall , The Devil Wears Prada, The Number Twelve Looks Like You - House Of Blues
    Sat 08/11/07 The Fixx The Club @ Cannery Casino

    As for venues, the Hard rock sucks. House of Blues is one of the best in town. MGM Grand is ok, but the sound quality in the arena can be shitty in spots. The Pearl is the brand new venue in town, good luck getting tickets. The Station casinos are not bad venues, and I think those are free shows. The Cannery Casino I have never been to, so I can not say - and there is no review posted on www.yelp.com yet for me to reference.

    HTH!

        The venues are a mixed bag here in Vegas. Some are ok, but the VIP sections & drink prices drag the experience down. Some like the Joint at the Hard C0ck are so bad they just suck ass.

          I missed that one - but most likely because unless it is something I HAVE to see; I refuse to go to the joint @ the Hard C0ck.

            In case anyone is interested in meeting up, I think I'm going to make this one (mostly for Streetlight Manifesto). It's still on the strip, but if someone wants a ride...

              Teabag from 303 and I were planning on attending that one as well. dig us up that weekend & we'll meet up. I know the box office folks there at the HoB well, and usually score free drink tickets.
