Beauty Bar 6th Anniversary Party

On July 14, Beauty Bar held its six-year anniversary party with a small crowd of loyal supporters. Compared with last year’s packed party led by hometown heroes Afghan Raiders and L.A.’s Leopold and His Fiction, the audience of about 50 was a bit depressing.

Too bad, as local hip-hop artists Phil A and Hassan gave a commendable and lively three-song performance, while Halloween Town’s Ryan Pardey DJ’d inside. L.A. punk rockers Delfonic Love sang about being young and drunk to five or six people on the patio. By 12:30 a.m., the disco-lovin’ tranny act Big Freedia was singing and booty shakin’.

Not a bad night; perhaps next year more locals will come out to support Beauty Bar’s seventh anniversary.

THE POOL GUYS: You had better appreciate all that Las Vegas does for you, youngster. There are but a handful of places on this planet where you can attend poolside concerts on warm summer evenings. Vegas boasts two such shows this weekend, both of them winners. Ben Folds (pictured) plays poolside at the Cosmopolitan on July 15 ($35), and Chris Isaak makes beachhead at Mandalay Bay on July 16 ($40).
