Fathom Events Presents: Kiss Rocks Vegas, One Night Only, May 25th!

Kiss Rocks Vegas

Hey what’s up. Do you happen to be a fan of the legendary rock band Kiss? It’s OK to admit it. Even though Gene Simmons is the Donald Trump of Rock, there are no judgments here. But if that is the case, then you may want to know that for one night only, Wednesday, May 25th at 7:00 PM, Fathom Events will bring KISS to the big screen for an explosive event in KISS Rocks Vegas, a live concert film that no fan will want to miss.

KISS Rocks Vegas, was filmed in November 2014, when KISS invaded The Joint, the infamous music venue at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, for a historic nine-show run. Woo! Now, for only one night, fans will be able to experience this spectacular show on the big screen as KISS Rocks Vegas hits select cinemas nationwide!

I attended a press screening for the film and I can’t deny that it is not only very entertaining, but also quite impressive! KISS have been rocking it since I was in grade school and, four decades and nearly innumerable rotating guitarists later, they don’t appear to be any worse for wear. Tommy Thayer and Eric Singer have been onboard for twenty or so years at this point, and they know how all the parts fit together. You can see why Gene and Paul trust them not to fuck anything up.

In addition to the live show, which flaunts a good mix of must-hear hits and catalog favortites, plus stuff blowing up real good, there is short section at the front of the film, the making of KISS Rocks Vegas, featuring individual interviews with the band members and exclusive behind-the-scenes footage! it’s very interesting to hear how the logistic of placing an arena-sized show into a  smller venue all came together.

So join the KISS Army, and sing along to some of your favorite songs as we “Rock & Roll All Nite!”

Surrealist sculptor Scott Hove has become famous for his fantastic fake cakes and cake-like sculptures that he creates using carved foam and traditional cake decorating tools. Spoke Art Gallery in San Francisco is currently showcasing his latest works in a highly topical exhibit entitled Guns & Ecstasy.

In addition to a fully immersive, single person Cake Installation that Hove calls “A Pentagonal Disco Infinity Chamber” — and which features multiple angled mirrors and a spinning disco ball — the exhibit includes a series of twelve confectionery assault weapon sculptures created in light of the recent shootings and gun violence in the United States.
