Concertgoers sometimes leave with a memento handed down from the stage, such as a drumstick, a set list, or a plastic baggy full of famous-person sweat. Go home happy with this GrouponLive deal to see Gotye at House of Blues Las Vegas. For $25, you get one G-Pass for general admission on Friday, September 7, at 8 p.m. (up to a $79 value, including all fees). Doors open at 7 p.m. Because the ticket is a G-Pass, Groupon customers can use it to enter the venue directly; they will not need to redeem their Groupon at will call.
Gotye is best known for delivering the haunting, finger-pointing lyrics of "Somebody That I Used to Know," but his new album, Making Mirrors, finds him working in a variety of moods, including on the joyful, Martha and the Vandellas-inspired “I Feel Better.” The new songs also incorporate more live instrumentation to expand on his usual paint box of intriguing vintage samples, as a 10-piece band will be joining him on his fall tour. "These are by far my most ambitious shows to date," he wrote on his Facebook page. "There will be no backing tracks used. All visuals will be triggered live.”
Renaissance man Jonti combines his talents as musician, arranger, and vocalist to create swirling sounds of electronic beauty. Youthful duo Chairlift thrills fans with dreamy synth-pop and cleverly repackaged '80s beats, continuing to enjoy success after its 2012 sophomore album, Something, which Pitchfork praised as "truly great pop."
_Due to security restrictions, G-Passes must be printed out and presented in person at the event. They cannot be redeemed through Groupon's mobile app._
House of Blues Las Vegas
There's a piece of the Delta on the Las Vegas strip. Beneath the stage of the House of Blues, a metal box of Mississippi mud reminds every performer who steps in the spotlight where the blues originated. But if they forget to think about the mud beneath their feet, the sights of the venue will surely be enough reminder. More than 300 pieces of folk art speckle the walls and 50,000 bottle caps comprise a tactile mural at the entrance to surround performers and audiences alike in southern simplicity. Still, a bit of the outside neon makes its way in. Hanging over the crowd, a chandelier from the ballroom of the old MGM glitters, echoing Las Vegas's ever-shining light.
