The Cosmopolitan, Las Vegas’ newest strip hotel in the City Center complex, announced yesterday their lineup of live entertainment in Book & Stage. It includes a rather impressive list of indie artists spanning the genres from rock to soul, blues and funk. The lineup also includes local musician Jeremy Cornwell. Shows begin at 10 p.m. and are free of charge.
Book & Stage combines sports book offerings with an open space stage, reminiscent of Las Vegas’ lounge act hay day. The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas is working with an Texas based company that books music festival acts specifically to get that indie, off-the-beaten-path vibe.
The upcoming acts are:
1/5-1/8 Best Coast
1/9-1/12 Jeremy Cornwell
1/13-1/16 Fitz and the Tantrums
1/19-1/22 Aloe Blacc
1/26-1/29 Black Joe Lewis & the Honeybears
2/3-2/6 Eli Paperboy Reed and the True Loves
2/10-2/13 Davy Knowles and Back Door Slam
2/17-2/20 Alex Boyd
2/23-2/26 Ryan Shaw
I’m planning to check out some of these bands early in their multi-night appearances so subscribe to my column to hear the latest on these rising indie stars.
This new hotel/casino on the strip also has a concert ballroom venue, The Chelsea, which will book larger concerts and bigger-name acts. The Black Keys will be performing Feb. 19 and 20. Tickets are available now.
Bond, an unusual lounge concept, combines house music with performance art and other musicians. DJs are scheduled and a list can be found on their events calendar.
Not to be outdone by the cities other night/day clubs, The Cosmopolitan boasts a 62,000 square foot nightclub, The Marquee, with some of the hottest DJ’s in the world. The day club, complete with cabanas, lofts and other party spaces will open when the weather allows, sometime in the spring.
The Boulevard Pool, high above The Las Vegas Strip, will offer a unique, multi-level pool experience by day and an outdoor concert venue by night.
While not opening with a theater or long-running show, the space is available for the future. For now concerts and clubs will be their forte.
