Mike Dillon & Punkadelick

A very interesting blend of punk rock and jazz took the stage with the Mike Dillon & Punkadelick trio. I haven’t seen anything so interesting in a while and the crowd seemed to be pleased by their brand of punky jazz.

Giovannie & The Hired Guns

A shift in energy came with Giovanni and The Hired Guns. I didn’t realize just how popular these guys are until tonight! They brought a very fun and high energy vibe with what sounded like a mix of cover songs blended with originals. A very diverse and interesting set from some very talented musicians!

And for the final band of the evening, CLUTCH. A highly interactive set with frontman Neil Fallon pointing into the crowd and smiling at them.

Clutch released their 13th studio album, “Sunrise on Slaughter Beach” almost a year ago, but seems to be relentlessly touring for this cycle. What I really loved about seeing these guys play, is that they seem to play a different set each night. Setlists for each tour date can be seen on their social sites and it gives the audience a sense of surprise. There’s a removal of predictability there and any band who can comfortably pull that off, I applaud.

These guys are a definite must see, and if you miss it, well.. you miss it! They don’t ever seem to play the same show twice!

Lead photographer, art director, sometimes editor, and writer for ZrockR Magazine- I am a mother, wife, photographer and a metalhead. Las Vegas Native. I first picked up a camera at 12 years old and I have been carrying one around ever since. I have an incredibly deep connection and love for my Las Vegas local music scene, this is where I first fell in love with music photography and knew that this is what I wanted to be doing with my time here on this planet. I say I'm a metalhead but I really love all kinds of music, I just connect the most with metal. Concerts are my happy place, and the happiest you'll ever see me is at a show with my camera in hand!
