Divebar Celebrates Third Anniversary
It’s loud. It’s brash. It’s got attitude. It’s even got the hole-in-the-wall location. But by living up to its name, Divebar has managed to last, and this weekend, it celebrates its third anniversary with a two-night Labor Day weekend bash full of live entertainment.
Among the many bands scheduled to appear on Friday, Aug 29, and Saturday, Aug 30, are Throw Rag, Flexx Bronco, The Stalking Distance, The Black Jets, The Strangers, The Lost Captins, The Tinglerz, Disguster, LA Velvet and Hang Em High.
There will also be various drink specials both nights and no cover.
You can find Divebar at 3035 E. Tropicana (in the Walmart Center between Pecos and McLeod). In addition to the drinks and music, they serve up a tasty menu of food and offer various happy hour specials most days. Call them at 702.435.7526 for more info or visit them on the web at myspace.com/divebar.

Nightmare on Fremont Street Takes Over Beauty Bar This Weekend
If your Labor Day Weekend partying brings you downtown, you may want to head over to the Beauty Bar on Saturday night for what’s being billed as “Nightmare on Fremont Street.”
The August 30th event features a long lineup of dirty electro, nu-rave and indie sounds from the likes of Roccanova, Jacob Safari, Grimehaus, Vajayjay, DJess and Zo on the inside. Meanwhile bands outside will include Slow Children, Calabrese, Holding Onto Sound, Bark Bark Bark, Moving Pictures Show, Jenn O Cide and DJ KnowWell.
Add to that a photo booth, beer pong, films and performance art, and you’ll have quite an evening of entertainment.
There’s no cover for the inside tunes, but if you want to venture outside to the back, a mere $5 will get you the whole lineup of music and more.
The Beauty Bar is located at 517 Fremont St, in the new Fremont East District, near the intersection of Las Vegas Blvd. For more info, visit them online at myspace.com/BeautyBarLasVegas.
