Best music venue: The Joint
Thu, May 26, 2011 (midnight)
Tiesto in Concert at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel on Jan. 1, 2011.
Electronic icon? Tiësto. Hard-rock happening? Soundgarden. Hip-hop hitmakers? Wiz Khalifa and Kid Cudi. Punk-rock progenitors? Iggy & The Stooges. We could go on about Widespread Panic, the Deftones and some guy named Roger Daltrey playing something called Tommy, but you already get the idea: If you’re looking for A-list musical acts, The Joint’s got you covered. Inside the Hard Rock Hotel. 693-5000.
