Off The Record

Neon Reverb Friday: Leslie's journal

March 12th, 2011

The Vibrant Sound gets it on

  • The Beat, the Bunkhouse and a childlike finale

  • Enthusiasm and technical difficulties mark the short film fest.

  • Local band Imagine Dragons had a little public band practice to start off their year.

  • Don't worry. The bassist is still tweeting, and the band plans to reschedule its London dates.

  • The outdoor Sevendust concert has been canceled due to a band emergency.

  • Nobody likes a bunch of pissed off musicians simply walking off stage.

  • It wasn’t a lack of swagger that failed to draw a sizable crowd for N*E*R*D at the Joint on Saturday night.

  • It makes perfect sense for a video game set in post-apocalyptic Las Vegas to celebrate its release with the help of indie darlings.

  • To be part of this experience defies description; suffice it to say nothing like this is ever likely to happen in our lifetime again.

  • That’s a wrap: A surreal night at Beauty Bar

  • Julie checks out the Beat, Las Vegas County Saloon, the Aruba and Boomers.

  • With another festival in the books, we take a look back on our favorite photos from LIB's 2014 installment.

  • Just in time for Halloween! Grab your audio recorders and UMF readers, it's time to contact the dead.

  • Need a ticket for Friday's sold-out, three-set show? You'll need about $500—or a miracle.

  • Either way, this band was a festival highlight.

  • The former space of Ming’s and the 24-hour cafe features sit-down breakfast from 6 to 11 a.m. (other sections are open 24/7); late-night and gourmet pizzas; soup station; create-your-own salad bar; sandwich station; sushi bar; and noodle bar.

  • Lots of good local bands and a drawing for a PBR guitar. Good times.

  • The "best band in late night" was also one of the best bands of this festival.

  • This was one act that truly left everyone wanting more.

  • Will people stand for 10 hours in the sun just to see Kanye West? Yes.

  • Start planning your festival experience around these dozen acts.

  • LIB's learning element is stacked with inspirational speakers.

  • Orchestral renditions of "Eleanor Rigby" and professional aerialists? You won't want to miss this.

  • One of the things setting Life Is Beautiful apart from other festivals is its impressive culinary component. Try these five bites!

  • It's renditions of well-known songs, but she makes them her own.

  • One writer's reasons for sticking with the social media website.

  • A nine-piece band and dancers in industrial-inspired costuming take Vegas down the rabbit hole once again.

  • “Life is sh*t for a lot of people. And sometimes you gotta embrace that.”
