Pool Party with Real McKenzies – at The Gold Spike Hotel – Las Vegas, NV

May 27, 2012

After Saturdays no show at the pool by other artists, The Real Mckenzies came in Sunday afternoon locked, stocked and loaded. Coming off an amazing and well received performance on the main stage in downtown on Saturday, The Real Mckenzies delivered a toned-down acoustic set without lacking their usual energy.

Returning sun bathers got more than anticipated, The Real Mckenzies smashed through two hours of fan favorites and special requests. The Golden Spike pool reached its maximum capacity. However, that meant no worries to the spectators posted up on the adjacent hotel balconies, as it served as some of the best seats in the house.

In true Punk fashion the pool quickly turned into probably the best pit of the day considering the weather and and temperature. Inflatable beach balls and and tubes were in full effect along with jello shots raining down from hotel occupants.

While Saturday's pool party seemed like an eternity the day before as we waited for a band that didn't even show up, the pool party on Sunday with The Real McKenzies felt as if it was not long enough. But alas, like everything in life all things must come to an end. Thankfully on this day it ended with tan lines, smiles, and an amazing acoustic set.
