Local music notes: Brooklyn Bowl’s new showcase, Megabolts’ new EP and more

Megabolts’ EP is streamable now.

In an effort to highlight Las Vegas’ most talented emerging artists, Brooklyn Bowl has unveiled its new Neon Valley Showcase, an ongoing event co-curated by Ryan Brunty, the local street artist behind apparel company Depressed Monsters. The series debuts on Saturday, February 3 with performances by indie-folk rockers O Wildly, hip-hop MC Mike Xavier, bluegrass duo The All-Togethers and electronic collective The Rabbit Hole.

Back in October 2016, Vegas audio and visual artist Brett Bolton (Kitze, Kid Meets Cougar) teamed up with singer and violinist Megan Wingerter (A Crowd of Small Adventures, Dusty Sunshine) for an electronic-based project called Megabolts. Now, the duo has released its debut EP, the six-track Maladapted, available digitally through Spotify and Apple Music.

Psychedelic mod-rockers The Laissez Fairs will celebrate the release of new album Empire of Mars—out on Boston label Rum Bar Records—at Zia Record Exchange on Eastern with a live performance and CD signing on February 2 at 6:30 p.m.

Indie duo Coastwest Unrest released its new album halfway through 2017, and is now taking The Crazed Ones on the road, starting with a show at the Bunkhouse on February 1 and continuing with dates in Reno, Boise and LA.

And after seven years as a band, pop-rock outfit Avalon Landing announced that it is coming to an end. The group will cap its career with two new songs, available on Spotify and at the iTunes Store next month.
