It's been months in the making — well, three to be exact — and it's officially upon us: the first studio recordings by bluesy rock 'n' rollers The Rooks. The Vegas quartet will be back in former "resident" stamping ground the Griffin to celebrate the release of a self-titled, five-track EP. Singer Zach Ryan describes the project, recording at the home studio of Black Camaro's Brain Garth, as "pretty simple, not really a production. We just really wanted to maintain that live feel," he adds. The EP will cost $5 at the show, with profits going toward the group's projected end-of-summer tour.

  • U2 perversely takes musical cues from acts it has famously influenced—Coldplay, The Killers and Arcade Fire.

  • The show felt like a defining moment for our music scene, and the band played like it knew that.

  • Frontman Ketch Secor offered some genuine Silver State knowledge. Hash House a Go Go!
