Party-rockin’ duo and recent Sapphire Pool residents HardNox might just be the Sin City version of Bloodhound Gang, or even LMFAO, for that matter. Danny Boy and Jimbo (siblings Dan and Jim Kehoe) have no shame in their novelty-pop game, incorporating all the trademark sounds of commercial EDM and hip-hop to boisterous and mischievous effect. Though their ReverbNation page hosts some 65 productions—which include original tracks, remixes, parody numbers and tributes to their nightlife friends—the one to stream is “In Vegas,” in which the two spit out countless local references (including just about every major club in town) atop a hard-driving 4/4 beat throughout, fade-ins during the verse and arpeggiated synth lines in the chorus. It’s the song version of a crazy souvenir cocktail, or something you’d imagine DJs playing at GBDC or XIV Sessions. Either way, it might just stir up some civic pride for the fist-pumping set.
