Holiday Concerts with CBS Radio | Las Vegas
By now, CBS Radio has gained a reputation for bringing big-name acts to Las Vegas for their annual holiday concerts, and for the fourth year in a row, Key Lime Photography has been their event photographer of choice. This year, the two-night “Holiday Havoc” was split between two Grammy nominees who are up for “Best Rock Album” with their latest releases, Blink 182 and Weezer. These bands have both been topping charts for 20 years and their latest albums are anything but “tired.” Travis Barker is just as fast on the drums as he was in 2000, and not just during the solos…like…all the time. Weezer still holds the record (in my mind) for best crowd participation, probably because every person on the planet knows at least four Weezer songs. The opening bands, like years past, were also noteworthy, including a little band called Jimmy Eat World, Pierce the Veil and Saint Motel. Saint Motel has just released their second album titled, “Saint Motelevision” and I’m thrilled to say that it is just as eye-opening (ear-opening?) as the first album. These guys were my favorite newcomers at the Life is Beautiful festival in 2015. If they come to a town near you, buy a ticket, while they’re still affordable. Their song “My Type” is only safe for work if your office allows toe-tapping and desk-drumming. Their new album also contains the openly Christian “Born Again” which I thought was a nice bonus.
