It was a jam-packed Saturday night of music at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas, and contributing photographer Erik Kabik of Retna was on duty for three photo galleries.

In a historic double-header at the Joint, The Steve Miller Band and The Doobie Brothers took center stage. Nearby at Vinyl, Rival Sons rocked the intimate music venue.

The Joint goes out with a bang with hometown heroes Imagine Dragons with guests The Mowgli’s and Las Vegas’ Parade of Lights on Monday night and Juicy J with guests DJ Orator and more on New Year’s Eve.

The Joint starts out the New Year strong with Linkin Park on Jan. 10 and The Zac Brown Band on Jan. 11 and 12. (Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington was at the Joint on Dec. 15 with Stone Temple Pilots; Bennington also is the lead singer of STP).

And Vinyl’s lineup through year’s end: Jim Norton and High Voltage AC/DC Production Show tonight, Metalachi Mondays on Monday and Empire Records’ “All ’90s Experience” for New Year’s Eve.
