During Most Thieves’ Thursday performance at Beauty Bar, I took a moment to close my eyes and soak up the Las Vegans’ melodic rock. They have an uncanny ability to mix powerful with laid-back, and I couldn’t help but sway along. –Chris Bitonti

Walking into the Bunkhouse during Puerto Rican outfit Los Vigilantes’ Thursday set, I got more than an earful. I won’t soon forget singer Javier Garrote’s hooded cape and black boxer briefs—or the moment he pulled off the latter to moon the crowd. –Leslie Ventura

The final song of Caveman’s Friday set at Beauty Bar, an extended, partially instrumental cut from the New Yorkers’ upcoming album, was one of those moments that makes you wish a set would never end: a beautiful soup of reverb-heavy guitars and crescendoing drum rhythms. –Andrea Domanick

Boulder City band Same Sex Mary closed its Saturday Bunkhouse set with Songs: Ohia’s “Captain Badass,” dedicated to that band’s leader Jason Molina, who died seven days earlier. It put a powerful cap on my own week spent listening through Molina’s great catalog. –Spencer Patterson
