The Life Is Beautiful Festival was held here last weekend. We could hear the music at our house. They had a lot of cool things going on - music and art. Artists were allowed to choose spaces like walls and rooftops to work on. We rode our bikes downtown on Sunday morning so we could see some of the murals. There was a huge one on a wall of a hotel that was closed down 2 years ago. We tried to get over to see it, but it was blocked off. We didn't buy tickets because we didn't think there were any groups we were interested in hearing. Kanye West's music isn't my thing, but Arctic Monkeys might be okay... Anyway, I'm posting the photos that Jim took of what we could see. We'll make another trip this weekend when things are open again. There were some really cool signs and interesting murals. Check it out.
I think downtown Las Vegas has funk value. What do you think?
