Eric Paslay, Islander, Tycho, ScHoolboy Q, Meshuggah and Asking Alexandria Added to Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas 2016 Lineup

BBLV Industry Night makes its return

 

 

 

BBLV INDUSTRY NIGHT FEAT. KR33PZ

MONDAY, JULY 25 AT 9 P.M.

The KR33PZ consists of best friends Conor (DJ ConTra) and Chris (MeanMeansy). The Vegas duo decided to mesh their separate musical backgrounds together to create the KR33PZ. Fairly new to this DJ partnership, the two put their different styles and genres together to open up a new avenue of opportunity. The team was actually started over a few beers and a load of confidence. The original plan was to play music for their friends and coworkers, but realized “Hey, we can make something out of this!” With their background and connections in the nightclub and day pool industry, it was a seamless transition from house parties to clubs.

 

Doors for BBLV Industry Night feat. KR33PZ at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas open at 9 p.m. This night is for ages 21 and up. There is no cost to attend this event. Find information about BBLV Industry Night at http://ticketf.ly/29WglQ8.

The Texas native is a recent Grammy Award nominee (his first as a recording artist) in the “Best Country Duo/Group” category for “The Driver,” performed by Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley, featuring Paslay and Dierks Bentley.

ISLANDER

SATURDAY, AUG. 27 AT 7 P.M.

Islander is an American nu metal band from Greenville, South Carolina. While the band has been playing together in some form since 2006, the group came together as Islander in 2011. After some rotation in the lineup, something of a supergroup formed toward the end of 2015.

 

Lead singer Mikey Carvajal leads the quartet that includes former Love and Death guitarist J.R. Bareis, who also served as guitar technician for Korn’s Brian “Head” Welch. Zeke Vasquez, formerly of ForeverAtLast, joined to play bass and Arin Ilejay moved from Avenged Sevenfold’s kit to play drums for Islander.

 

The band teamed up early in 2016 with producer Cameron Webb (Motörhead, Alkaline Trio) to work on “Power Under Control,” Islander’s second full-length studio album. The band cites a renewed energy and sense of purpose with the new lineup of musicianship.

 

The Funeral Portrait, XXI and Jessie Smith and the Holy Ghost will all provide support on this date.

TYCHO

TUESDAY, OCT. 4 AT 9 P.M.           

Tycho, the ambient music project helmed by Scott Hansen – primary writer, composer and producer – is a down-tempo, blend of vintage synthesizers and wandering melodies, interspersed with newscasts and other human voice samples. Unlike many contemporary electronic music artists, Tycho retains the low fidelity sound of analog media, allowing the more progressive elements of his work to stand out. His blend of electronic synth, live instrumentation, and old school sound clips creates a relatable ambience.

 

Hansen made a decision to open both Tycho’s recording and live performances to collaboration with other musicians. Tycho has toured live most notably with Zac Brown on Bass and Roy O’Connor on drums, Hansen often playing guitar.

 

Big Wild and Heathered Pearls will provide support on this date.

 

Doors for Tycho at Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas open at 7 p.m. This show is for ages 18 and up. Tickets start at $25 (plus applicable service fees) and are on sale to the public Friday, July 22 at 10 a.m. at the Brooklyn Bowl box office, by calling 877.987.6487 or online at http://ticketf.ly/2a5DrHg.

He is also a founding member of the Black Hippy collective with Kendrick Lamar, Jay Rock and Ab-Soul.

 

In June of 2016, ScHoolboy Q revealed the title of his forthcoming album would be “Blank Face LP,” and he released the cover art for the album, which displayed the famous “Crying Jordan” meme. He would later reveal that he was only trolling his fans, and the true album art was revealed.

 

Brooklyn native Joey Bada$$ provides support on this date. The 21-year-old phenom began writing poetry and lyrics as early as age 11 and co-founded the Pro Era collective, releasing a series of mixtapes with the group of high school friends.

Recap: 4th ACM Party for a Cause Festival Continues w/ Headliner Dierks Bentley / Cabela’s & ACM’s Archerty Tournament

Last night, Dierks Bentley headlined the second night of the 4th ACM Party for a Cause® Festival at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. The three-day event continued with an all-star lineup of performers on the Ram Trucks Main Stage including Frankie Ballard, Lee Brice, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Chris Stapleton and Chris Young. Earlier performances on the Cabela’s Stage featured Chase Bryant, Courtney Cole, Chris Lane, Jackson Michelson and A Thousand Horses.

 

Highlights from the second day and night included:

 

  • Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelly and Eric Paslay joined headliner Dierks Bentley on stage to perform Kelley’s debut solo single, “The Driver.”
  • Lee Brice performed an acoustic version of Eli Young Band’s “Crazy Girl;” which he wrote.
  • Dustin Lynch crowd surfed from the Ram Trucks Main Stage in an inflatable boat while he sang “Where It’s At.”
  • Chris Stapleton performed a duet with his wife, Morgane, as the sunset over the Las Vegas Festival Grounds.
  • ACM CEO Bob Romeo presented Chris Stapleton with his ACM Award for New Male Artist of the Year
  • Lee Brice surprised Ginger Ravella (a military widow and Folds of Honor advocate) with a piece of her past that she never thought she’d ever see again, a truck that had belonged to her fallen husband and sold before his deployment. Ginger was overwhelmed by the gesture and was overcome with tears on stage during the presentation*.
    • Back Story: Last year, Lee performed a benefit concert for Folds of Honor, a non-profit that provides educational scholarships to spouses and children of fallen or disabled veterans. After the performance, Ginger Ravella (a military widow and Folds of Honor advocate) was overcome with emotion and told Lee that his song, ‘I Drive Your Truck’ held a special meaning to her family – it reminded Ginger of her fallen husband, Troy Gilbert, who was forced to sell his 3rd generation family-owned truck before his last deployment. Troy’s F-16 fighter jet crashed in Iraq while trying to save U.S. troops (story here). Immediately, Lee and his manager got digging. After nearly 6 months of cross country searching, Lee and Ginger’s second husband (Jim Ravella) found Troy’s original truck in Phoenix, AZ. They purchased the truck, payed to get it fixed up and shipped it to Las Vegas in time for the ACMs this weekend, where Lee will be surprising Ginger (in the audience) with the truck. To make it better, Troy’s youngest son, Greyson, got his license earlier this month and will be driving his late father’s truck.
  • Multiple checks were presented on behalf of the Academy’s charitable arm, ACM Lifting Lives to beneficiaries of this year’s ACM Party for a Cause Festival including Folds of Honor, Military Warriors Support Foundation,Honor Flight SouthlandNavy SEAL Foundation, and Task Force Dagger Foundation.

  • The morning kicked off with the ACM & Cabela’s Celebrity Tic-Tac-Toe Archery Tournament. Cabela’s Ambassadors Luke Bryan and Justin Moore returned to host the fan-favorite event held at the Cabela’s Stage at the Las Vegas Festival Grounds. Country music stars Luke Bryan, Chris Janson, Dustin Lynch, Justin Moore, Eric Paslay, Chris Rice, and Granger Smith, former MLB player Adam LaRoche, plus Cabela’s pro staff Wade Middleton and Kristy Titus participated in the archery tournament featuring Cabela’s state-of-the-art archery equipment.
    • HIGHLIGHTS:
      • Team Luke and Team Justin competing head-to-head for the trophy:
      • Team Luke included country music artists Chris Janson, Chase Rice, and Granger Smith plus Cabela’s pro staffer Wade Middleton.
      • Team Justin included artists Dustin Lynch, Eric Paslay, former MLB player Adam LaRoche and Cabela’s Pro Staffer Kristy Titus. Country artist Lucas Hoge and bow hunting athlete Cameron Hanes also competed at the event during half-time.
      • Team Luke was leading the competition when Storme Warren suggested that Luke Bryan and Justin Moore make a sudden death deal: the two artists shoot one last game of tic-tac-toe and whoever wins would take home the trophy. In spite of Team Luke’s commanding lead, Justin surprised the crowd with a victory!
      • Additional attendees included event emcees Storme Warren and Eva Shocky.
