Cobra Starship at Palms' Ditch Fridays

Good girls went bad and started singing “La la la la la” when Cobra Starship hosted, partied and performed at Ditch Fridays, the weekly adult pool party at the Palms last Friday.

Frontman Gabe Saporta and cohort Victoria Asher represented the alternative band in style -- he in a gray tank top and funky shorts and she in a dark blue spaghetti-strap top and denim cut-offs -- and were ready for some afternoon fun.

They kicked off their set with “Good Girls Go Bad,” minus Leighton Meester, and the partygoers rushed the stage, much to Saporta’s delight. He flirted with dancers, squirted the crowd with water guns, showered them with bubbly and jumped offstage to dance with bikini-clad ladies.

Asher soared with her vocals on the hits “You Make Me Feel” and “#1Nite.” After their set, Saporta, Asher and friends partied in a VIP area behind the DJ booth, enjoyed Jameson, Ketel One, Red Bull and Coors Lite and closed the place down.

Cobra Starship performed at this year's Miss USA Pageant at Planet Hollywood. Thanks to Aaron Garcia for his photo gallery.
