Somebody between Live Nation and the Cosmopolitan Hotel dreamed up a quirky “Set Your Life to Music” concert series that will see artists like Blink-182 and Minus the Bear perform in a ‘backyard setting' atop the high-rise’s Boulevard pool deck, which provides the atmosphere, grandeur, and all of the allure that is distinctly incumbent to Las Vegas. Despite the premature and untimely death of Jay Reatard, Stephen Pope and Billy Hayes had aleady defected to Nathan Williams’ Wavves, which in turn brought the band to maturity through the release of 2010’s critically acclaimed King of the Beach. Although the Pope-Hayes partnership once again proved magical, Williams’ continuing inability to maintain a steady drummer saw the departure of Hayes for Jacob Cooper, leaving Pope to singly corral Williams to greater heights and greatness during Wavves 2013 album Afraid of Heights. Although categorically surf-rock, the punx aesthetic of the band lends itself beyond the self-identification as such, and the group seems a Fest performance from orgcore-demigod-status.
