Royal Thunder - (Set time: 10:45 PM)
Royal Thunder
Royal Thunder is an Atlanta based, four-piece, progressive rock/metal, alternative band founded by lead guitarist Josh Weaver in 2006. After going through some lineup changes, Mlny Parsonz (bass/vocals) joined the group in 2007. Together, the two added drummer Lee Smith whom Weaver and Parsonz had played with in a previous band, and then last but not least Josh Coleman (rhythm guitar) was added to the fold.

Royal Thunder self-recorded and released a seven song EP in late 2009 before signing with renowned independent label, Relapse Records, who re-issued the EP in 2010. The band quickly gained critical praise, being described as "Led Zeppelin astride a psychedelic unicorn" by and "Black Math Horseman or Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde, fronting Black Sabbath." by Brooklyn Vegan.

Royal Thunder is set to release their proper full-length debut entitled 'CVI' via Relapse Records in the spring of 2011. 'CVI' is a sultry, southern, hard rock thinker of an album that is an absolute must have for fans of the Atlanta and Savannah hard rock scenes (Mastodon, Baroness, Kylesa, Black Tusk, etc). Royal Thunder have crafted an unforgettable, truly soulful sound with 'CVI'.

With a hard-hitting, hypnotic live show that is more of a ritual than a rock concert, the four piece has been capturing audiences with their passionate performances, sharing the stage with a range of artists including Scott Kelly of Neurosis, Wovenhand, Birds of Avalon, Kylesa, and many more. Keep this band on your radar in 2012 and beyond.
STRANGE MISTRESS - (Set time: 10:00 PM)
Establishing themselves as one of the heaviest rock bands from Outerspace, NV, Strange Mistress creates a raw and unique style of alternative rock that will take you far beyond this world. Strange Miss blends howling vocals and electrifying guitar riffs with a thunder driven rhythm section which creates the pillars of their cosmic sound. Known for their visceral live performances and heavy hitting riffs, Strange Mistress is a force to be reckoned with.
Future Vinyls - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Future Vinyls
Future Vinyls makes for some of the most exciting indie rock acts out of Nevada and a must-see in Las Vegas. Their band merges Tracey’s poignant lyrics with Matt’s metal-style drumming, and David’s bass with lead guitar enthusiasm. They are breaking barriers and moving forward with catchy licks and hard rock attitude. Their performances for sure turn a night out into a night to remember.
Girls and Wolves - (Set time: 8:30 PM)
Girls and Wolves
We are a local Las Vegas Indie Rock band with a new and unique sound. We blend the classical components of the piano and melodic vocal harmonies with delicious guitar riffs, pleasurably pulsating bass lines, all glued together by rhythmic orgasm inducing drum beats!
