Dreamwire

Cheyenne Saloon, Sept. 23

It takes quite a bit of talent to transform a typical saloon into an ambient daydream. Fortunately, Dreamwire has that talent. From the top of their set until the very last strum, the Vegas-based shoegaze act kept a constant flow of melodic tunes surging from the speakers.

Dreamwire was the headlining act in a charity event for Huntington’s Disease awareness. Everyone swayed and watched in an appreciative gloominess as the band played most of the songs from their self-titled debut album. They opened up their set with “Alien”: Amber “Clove” Corby sang like a siren while bandmates Joshua “Lowtone” Stuart and Nathan Geving accompanied with guitars. The band showed off their skills during fan-favorite “City Lights.” It was very impressive to see the band perform in total unison—switching from keyboards to guitars and back as the show progressed. From the intense cymbal-crashing to the other-worldly lyrics, the members of Dreamwire were quite the extraterrestrials.

A new art gallery has opened its doors in Las Vegas, complete with a celebration featuring spoken word by Harry Fagel and live music from Rushmore Beekeepers. If you missed it, don’t worry: Your downtown hipster rep is still intact. But your geek cred might need some work, because this new space isn’t downtown—it’s inside Alternate Reality Comics, one of Las Vegas’ oldest comic book stores, located on the periphery of the University District. “This side of town doesn’t have representation like downtown,” says Alternate Reality owner Ralph Mathieu.
