The Valley to Vegas: Spring Concert Series wrapped Friday night with a psychedelic performance from indie-rock trio Foster the People at Boulevard Pool in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Young & Sick served as the opening act before FTP, with frontman Mark Foster, took the stage, remarking how great it was to be back in Las Vegas and launching into a Friday night setlist featuring songs from their recently released album, “Supermodel,” including “Are You What You Want to Be?” and “Coming of Age.”

FTP’s concert also included “Miss You,” “Call It What You Want” and, of course, “Pumped Up Kicks,” from their debut album, “Torches.” During the middle of the set, lead singer Foster — in a white, long-sleeve shirt; a black, sleeve-less leather vest; and black pants — expressed his thanks to everyone from Las Vegas locals to visitors for attending the show.

FTP was the final performance in the Valley to Vegas: Spring Concert Series, an eight-day entertainment experience that offered music fans the chance to see buzzed-about artists at Boulevard Pool and the nearby Chelsea.
