Neon Reverb’s fall edition is finishing up strong, riding two elements vital to the festival’s future survival: a thick crowd and a powerhouse local act. Electronic duo Afghan Raiders are raging inside Beauty Bar and the crush of bodies is loving every second—seriously, it’s around 150 degrees in here and the walls are shaking so hard they might disintegrate at any moment. Opening with their own “Future Thinkers” and closing with a remix of Daft Punk’s “Technologic” that has the song’s robotic voice repeating “Afghan Raiders,” Vegas’ hottest musical entity serves notice once again that Mikey, Beans and their infectious dance tunes will soon bust way beyond this city’s borders. And Neon Reverb? Looks like we’ll see ya in the spring.
