Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas Heats Up With Its Fiery Summer Concert Series

Last updated: August 6, 2014 at 12:24 pm. Posted by in The LINQ. 1 Comment on Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas Heats Up With Its Fiery Summer Concert Series.

I’m a big fan of Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas. Since its spring opening at The LINQ, I had the pleasure of hearing The Roots then Bonobo play live. Not only did the live instruments add to the show, but the venue’s crisp sound quality deems this to be the best venue for Las Vegas concerts.

Not to mention, bowling (just a few steps away!) is a blast, too.

If you’re a music head like a lot of us, then you’re going to be stoked about the upcoming summer lineup. Fan of electro? Here are just a few of the bands gracing the Brooklyn Bowl stage this summer, along with several other hot artists. Get your groove on and buy your Brooklyn Bowl Las Vegas show tickets today.

Disclosure

Wednesday, August 6 at 9 p.m.

These two bros may have been born in the ‘90s, but they have talent exceeding far beyond their years. Disclosure consists of brothers Howard and Guy Lawrence. The siblings grew up in Reigate, Surrey. Their 2013 debut album, “Settle,” received a 2014 Grammy Award nomination for Best Dance / Electronica album.

The duo had their first UK hit with “Latch” in 2012. Other notable hits include “White Noise” and “Help Me Lose My Mind.” They’ve toured heavily the past year, included Coachella in southern California, Lollapalooza in Chicago and Sasquatch in Washington state.

They’ve also made remixes incorporating tracks by hit artists like Q-Tip, Pharrell and Crystal Fighters, to name a few.

See Disclosure Wednesday, August 6 at  9 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Ticket prices are $50.

Chromeo

Thursday, August 7 at 8 p.m.

Mix the sounds of Zapp & Roger, Cameo and Hall & Oates and you’ll get an idea what Chromeo sounds like: This Canadian electro-funk group established in 2002. The duo (consisting of crooner Dave 1 and beats maker P-Thugg) released their debut album, “She’s In Control” in 2004. This album spawned their world-famous club hit, “Needy Girl.”

Not only did this track have disco-funk appeal (I can tell by the look of your big-brown-eyes), it features P-Thugg’s hip-hop influences, complete with record scratches. In 2007, Chromeo released “Fancy Footwork,” which featured the funky tracks “Fancy Footwork,” “Bonafied Lovin” and “Tenderoni.” This album peaked at No. 11 on the U.S. Top Album Electronic chart.

The duo doesn’t stop here: In 2010, they released “Business Casual,” which included the instant hit, “Night by Night” (which sounds a lot like a cool, ‘80s cop show theme song). Other likable tracks include “Hot Mess” and “Don’t Turn The Lights On.”

Just this year, Chromeo released their fourth studio album, “White Women” as well as “Jealous (Mixes).” “White Women” made No. 1 on the U.S. Album / Electronic Album chart. The album spawned the following songs: “Over Your Shoulder”, “Sexy Socialite”, “Come Alive” featuring Toro y Moi, and “Jealous (I Ain’t with It).”

See Chromeo Wednesday, August 6 at 8 p.m. Doors open at 6 p.m. Ticket prices range from $30-40. Stay for the late show and catch Flume at 11:30 p.m.

Cut Copy

Friday, August 8 at 9 p.m.

This Australian electronic quartet formed in 2001. They’ve since released four albums. Cut Copy’s most popular song to date is 2007’s “Hearts on Fire.”

In 2011, Cut Copy won the ARIA award for Best Dance Release for “Zonoscope.” The following year, the group received a Grammy nod for Best Dance / Electronica Release for the same album. Cut Copy released their latest album, “Free Your Mind” in November 2013.

Cut Copy was named Top 25 Must-Hear Artists at Coachella by SPIN magazine.

See Cut Copy Friday, August 8 at 9 p.m. Doors open at 7 p.m. Ticket prices range from $30-40.

Other artists to hit the Brooklyn Bowl stage this summer (and early fall) include The Wailers, Jimmy Cliff, Atmosphere and Chvrches, among others.

About The Author

I live for a crazy Vegas adventure, but not in ways you may think. Sure, our nightlife scene is all fun and dandy, but I love discovering all of the city's vegan options, relaxing in hotel rooms and seeing the best concerts - no matter how big or small the crowd may be. Since I've ditched the rain in Seattle two decades ago, I graduated from UNLV and covered Las Vegas entertainment articles for Vegas.com, the LA Times and our very own Total Vegas Blog. When I'm not writing, you'll find me spending time with my husband, toddler and two pets.
