It was a dual-headliner night at the new Chelsea in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas.

Breakout Los Angeles alternative-dance duo Capital Cities — Ryan Merchant and Sebu Simonian —kicked things off Tuesday night on the Mophie Stage getting the crowd moving with their electronic-infused pop rock.

The popular pair played a set with tracks including “Center Stage,” “Kangaroo Court” and their hit “Safe and Sound.”

Next onstage was Los Angeles-based indie group Fitz and The Tantrums.

The chart-topping, show-stopping performers delighted the audience with their genre-smashing sounds and fan favorites including “Break the Walls,” their hit “Out of My League,” plus, a cover of The Eurythmics’ “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This).”

Thanks to contributing photographer Erik Kabik of Retna for his photo galleries of the two bands.
