If you’re like me and don’t want to deal with the craziness of Coachella you can stay right here in Vegas and catch some of the highlight bands playing at The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas during the Spring Concert Series (I prefer the unofficial name No-Chella) April 10-20, 2013.  Currently 7 nights of shows and 13 bands are booked.  We can only assume (hope) that one more big name (Lumineers? Jurassic 5? Modest Mouse? Gaslight Anthem?) is added to the currently open Saturday of the first weekend.  Show I’m most excited for: Of Monsters and Men with Local Natives.  Great job Cosmo.  You’re giving us hope for a solid summer lineup

Silver Lake indie folk rock band Local Natives just released their sophomore album Hummingbird following in the footsteps of their 2010 album – Gorilla Manor which included singles “Airplanes”, “Wide Eyes” and “Sun Hands”.    Emotional music with strong harmonies that draws comparisons to Vampire Weekend and Grizzly Bear.  They have a few upcoming sold out shows in LA, Oakland and NYC before heading out for a month long European tour ending at the Where the Wild Things Are Festival in Netherlands.  Catch them back in the U.S. starting mid-March but get your tickets early as a few shows in March and April are already sold out.  You can also see them at Coachella and The Governer’s Ball.
