The local quintet was fresh from Bergenfest in Norway when they performed May 13 in front of their original fans at the Hard Rock Café on the Strip. The band plays locally often enough, but this evening was special because they were headlining their own EP release party for It’s Time. From the beginning, the crowd filtered to the front of the stage to bask in the energy of vibrant frontman Dan Reynolds. The audience then swayed back and forth to the already-popular single “Amsterdam,” as keyboardist Brittany Tolman joined Reynolds on the tantalizing chorus. The single “Tokyo” had similar effects. After the encore, eager fans lined up to meet, greet and purchase the new EP. It’s just too bad that you can’t buy a recording of the performance that they had just rocked.
