The Valley to Vegas: Spring Concert Series continued Thursday evening with indie-rock outfit Haim bringing its three-part harmonies to Boulevard Pool in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

After an opening set by Ms. Mr., Haim kicked off the evening with “Falling.” “How magical is this?” bassist Este said aloud in reference to Boulevard Pool perched above the Strip.

The San Fernando Valley, Calif.-based quartet comprised of “three sisters and a mister” (although there were technically two misters onstage Thursday night), delivered a high-energy setlist that included “The Wire,” “Let Me Go,” “Honey & I” and covers of Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” and Beyonce’s “XO.”

Halfway through the concert, frontwoman Danielle switched spots with Dash Hutton on the drums, demonstrating her musical talents, as well as each member’s ability to play multiple instruments.

Haim is the second-to-last performance in the Valley to Vegas: Spring Concert Series, an eight-day entertainment experience that offers music fans the chance to see buzzed-about artists at Boulevard Pool and the nearby Chelsea.

The Valley to Vegas: Spring Concert Series wrapped Friday night with Foster the People, whose frontman, Mark Foster, watched Haim from the VIP area.
