The Cab

Hard Rock Café on the Strip, Jan. 13

Mixing melodic pop-rock with grooving almost-dance beats, the Las Vegas ensemble delivered a high-energy performance that had every teenage girl screaming at the top of their lungs … the entire time. This was The Cab’s first headlining show in a while, and lead vocalist Alexander Michael DeLeon exclaimed to a packed house, “They said no one would show up.” The band played a lot of material from its August release, Symphony Soldier, including “Endlessly,” a song penned with Bruno Mars. The very sexual “Animal” featured a chunky guitar groove and a sweet solo by lead guitarist, Frank Sidoris. DeLeon sang a few stripped-down songs with best friend/band mate, Alex Marshall on the piano. After an encore, The Cab closed with their new single “Bad,” and the entire room sang along. ★★★★☆

Diggy Simmons

The 16-year-old from MTV’s reality show Run’s House may be able to claim Reverend Run from Run DMC as his father and music mogul Russell Simmons as his uncle, but he’s talented in his own right. Rapper YG warmed up the crowd of screaming teenage girls, and when Diggy hit the stage, pandemonium ensued. He raced through favorites, including “Do It Like You” and “Great Expectations,” before closing his short set with the hit single “Copy, Paste” as the audience sang the hook as loudly as humanly possible.
