In This Moment, Butcher Babies, Systemec Pictures
I’m not sure why it took so long but www.Vegas24Seven.com finally got to a show at the Hard Rock Hotel Casino most recent addition Vinyl. My buddy Gee Silver from Vegas Metal/Rock band extraordinaire OUTTA THE BLACK and I checked out First Class Trash, Systemec, Butcher Babies and headliners In This Moment. Turns out Vinyl is a rocking venue that’s small enough for a personal music experience and large enough to attract the likes of Chevelle, Trapt and Maria Brink with In This Moment. Some of the best bands Vegas has to offer have also performed here as well. The booze was flowing, the crowd was semi-lucid and energized by the performers and the showroom was a rocking. First Class Trash was just finishing as we arrived and everyone said they nailed it. Systemec put on the most personal performance of the night working the room and engaging the crowd belting out heartfelt songs with meaning. Most people didn’t care if Butcher Babies was personal or not as long as they tantalized them with their provocative wardrobe and crazy over the top delivery. I’ve seen them before at 48 Hours Festival and you certainly don’t forget you saw them. What can you say about Maria Brink and In This Moment, lot’s. I’ve seen In This Moment several times before. Maria was one of the first ladies of \m/ metal \m/ , In This Moment is climbing to the top and put on a theatrical performance that the crowd just loved. Vinyl and In This Moment, thanks for a special evening.
