Indie rock duo Tegan and Sara made a special appearance at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Las Vegas to check out their one-of-a-kind memorabilia showcase on Thursday, Oct. 24. The twin sisters posed for photographs with fans and the display, which symbolizes their unique career milestones as internationally-celebrated songwriters, performers, and artists. The case features various pieces of Tegan and Sara’s musical history including a drumhead, cropped red leather jacket and red blazer worn during a performance on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” as well as an acoustic guitar used during a recording of their live album and DVD titled “Get Along.” After, they met with Curator and Creative Consultant Warwick Stone who gave them a behind-the-scenes tour of his studio to see more rare memorabilia.

 

Best known for their creative ability to bridge the pop and indie worlds, Tegan and Sara have allowed their music to cross all traditional boundaries of genre, from being covered by The White Stripes to collaborating with superstar DJs such as Tiësto and David Guetta. Over the course of their career, the group has sold more than 1 million albums, toured with acts such as Cyndi Lauper, The Killers, Death Cab for Cutie, Weezer and Neil Young, and performed at countless festivals around the world. Most recently, Tegan and Sara released their 7th studio album Heartthrob, which debuted at No. 3 on the “Billboard 200” chart.

The memorabilia at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino is hand selected and carefully placed in cases throughout the resort by Stone to honor legends in the entertainment industry. Some of the unique displays include a shimmery, white glove once worn by the one-and-only Michael Jackson; an array of rare collection items from The Beatles; the original drum kit Rick Allen of Def Leppard used following a near fatal car accident; a Nirvana display featuring a leather jacket autographed by Kurt Cobain; and many more.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas kicked off the Spring Concert Series at the Boulevard Pool on Wednesday, April 10 and will continue to heat things up with more world-class performances throughout the coming week.

Indie duo Tegan and Sara started the series off with a bang, bringing the electro-pop sounds of their January release Heartthrob to the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Wednesday. The sisters, who have been performing for 13 years, first gained notoriety among fans with the 2004 breakthrough record So Jealous. Since then, the duo has collaborated with world-famous DJs like Tiesto and David Guetta, allowing the group to blur the lines of both indie rock and dance genres.

Legendary 80s band New Order, continued the series on Thursday, April 11 with a powerful and riveting set, combining timeless hits like “Blue Monday” and “Temptation” with Joy Division tracks “Atmosphere” and “Transmission.” Earlier in the night, former guitarist of The Smiths, Johnny Marr, put on a nostalgic performance with fan-favorites including “How Soon Is Now?” Comprised of three former Joy Division members, New Order formed in 1980 after Joy Division’s lead singer, Ian Curtis, committed suicide. The group has since gone on to become one of the most influential new wave bands in history.

Vampire Weekend and special guest Tanlines brought their beach-inspired dance tunes, perfectly suited for the Boulevard Pool, to the stage on Friday, April 12. The group, which came together in 2006, released its self-titled debut album in 2008 and quickly became one of the year’s most popular indie releases. The group’s second album, Contra, was released in early 2010.

The Yeah Yeah Yeah’s rocked Las Vegas Boulevard last night, wrapping up the first week of the series. Ferocious and captivating lead singer Karen O took the group’s slew of hits, like “Heads Will Roll” and “Maps” up a few decibels with her supercharged performance. Just a few days before the release of new album, Mosquito, the trio is sure to be catapulted into rock n’ roll stardom once again.

Next up for the Spring Concert Series is Of Monsters and Men and Local Natives on Wednesday, April 17, Hot Chip with special guest Four Tet on Thursday, April 18, The Postal Service at The Chelsea on Friday, April 19 and Band of Horses with special guest Jake Bugg on Saturday, April 20.

The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas features artists at the forefront of the touring world and emerging artists that will inspire the next musical movements coupled with spectacularly-designed, technology-driven venues. Perched high above The Las Vegas Strip, Boulevard Pool is a multilevel pool experience by day and an intimate outdoor concert venue with unobstructed sightlines of both the stage and The Strip by night.

Last night (Saturday, March 16), Celtic rockers Flogging Molly performed a raucous, adrenaline-filled set for a capacity crowd of St. Patrick’s Day revelers at the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Merging punk rock with Celtic instruments, the band got onlookers to stomp and sing along to hits like “Drunken Lullabies,” “Devil’s Dance Floor,” “Float” and “Salty Dog.”

 

As a band that cannot be categorized, Flogging Molly’s heart and soul is felt through fifth studio album and most prized work, Speed of Darkness, released in 2011. Thirteen years after debut album, Swagger, the band continues their loyalty to fans, performing in bars, pubs, and nearly every major rock festival in North America, Europe, and Japan.

Next up at the Boulevard Pool is Tegan and Sara on Wednesday, April 10, New Order with special guest Johnny Marr on Thursday, April 11, Vampire Weekend on Friday, April 12, and Yeah Yeah Yeahs on Saturday, April 13 as part of the Spring Concert Series.
