"One for the Road:" The Last Vegas

By Chuck Sudo in Arts & Entertainment on Mar 4, 2011 10:30PM

Here's what Tankboy wrote about The Last Vegas in 2006:

"The Last Vegas specializes in the type of raunch-and-roll that made its home on the Sunset Strip back before hair-metal sterilized the scene with its fog of Aquanet and mascara. The group got themselves a new lead singer last year, and while we admit we weren’t big fans of Chad Cherry’s flippity-floppity between turbo-charged macho-man and preening androgyne, in retrospect we believe that may have been due to the shock of seeing such an over-the-top personality replacing their previous front-man. Change happens, though, and in this case it really does seem to have reinvigorated the band."

We just felt, with today being damn near balmy outside, we needed to close out the week with something ballsy. Open up the windows and play this loud.
