This is my preferred list, although I will probably skip the jive lesson and I will squeeze in Frankie's Thursday late afternoon. Sorry burlesque fans, I would rather be watching bands play.

If you are getting into Vegas on Wednesday, try to get to the Wild! Records Pre-party at The Las Vegas Country Saloon, 425 Fremont Street, Downtown Las Vegas.

Fun! I just uploaded all of my posts for what to do on (insert day here), and will post one a day. It would have been so much easier to do it all in one post like you! Love it.

See you soon,

Rivet Head said...

Thanks for the props Kim! I didn't know we'd be up against the Don Juans...

Must be Matt, Mr. Rivethead....

I know the overlap sucks, but I will catch the first 35 minutes of their set (probably 40 minutes) and then miss the first 5 minutes of yours. Then the time will be equally disbursed between the two bands.

Woah...I am totally OCD

I also just posted links to most of the bands websites so people can listen to their music to help decide- http://tartdeco.blogspot.com/2011/04/viva-las-vegas-series-16-music.html
