Mastodon are now part of the collection of rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia featured at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas. Among the band’s contributions are guitars, drums, set lists, handwritten lyrics, and clothes all used by the Atlanta metal quartet over the past 16 years.
Beau Dobney, Curator and Design Specialist for the Hard Rock Hotels, said, “We are very excited to work with Mastodon, they are elemental in today’s metal sound and aesthetic. This exhibit will be up here in the Hard Rock Hotel until summer of 2018.”
Meanwhile, the band continues to tour in support of their acclaimed 2014 album Once More ‘Round the Sun, playing festivals throughout Europe during August before returning to Atlanta to play the Project Pabst festival throughout East Atlanta Village on October 1st – a multi-stage/multi-venue affair that also will include performances by Santigold, Charles Bradley & His Extraordinaires, Titus Andronicus, NOFX and fellow Atlanta acts Run the Jewels, Biters, Omni, Midnight Larks, Dinos Boys and others.
