Brett Dennen

It’s hard to fathom that June 23 was the first time folk singer Brett Dennen performed in Las Vegas. The rising star delivered a 90-minute set at Veil in the Silverton for a few hundred fans. They were not disappointed, as Dennen busted out such favorites as “San Francisco” and “Make You Crazy” while also performing tracks off his new album, Loverboy, including “Dancing at a Funeral” and “Sydney (I’ll Come Running).” The highlight of the show was easily the four-song encore, as Dennen returned solo to the stage for acoustic versions of “Heaven” and “Ain’t No Reason,” which turned into soft and delicate sing-alongs with the crowd. To bring the energy back up, Dennen’s band reappeared along with the opening band, Dawes, to perform a rocking rendition of Steve Miller Band’s “Swingtown” before capping the evening with “Blessed.” Barefoot and wearing a constant grin, Dennen looked right at home inside the intimate venue. Maybe next time it won’t take as long for him to grace Vegas with his presence.

It’s a good time, this J.J. Abrams-directed, Steven Spielberg-produced movie—a critter picture conjoined with a coming-of-age picture. Joe (Joel Courtney), the young teenage son of a local police officer (Kyle Chandler), is making a zombie movie with his friends in their hilly Ohio steel town. One night while filming a scene on the train platform, an Air Force train derails before their very eyes, some strange boxcar cargo making its presence known. Then the strangeness starts happening.
