Swedish garage rock band The Hives rocked the crowd at BLVD Social Club — Thursdays Live at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas on Thursday night. The five-piece band with stage names consisting of Howlin’ Pelle Almqvist, Nicholaus Arson, Chris Dangerous, Dr. Matt Destruction and Vigilante Carlstroem jammed out to tracks like “Walk Idiot Walk, “Wait a Minute” and “Tick Tick Boom.” Their most recent studio album, Lex Hives, comes 15 years after the release of their debut studio album, Barley Legal. The Hives have been known to match uniforms during concerts, as they did last night, using a black and white color scheme.

Next up at BLVD Social Club — Thursdays Live is Ryan Leslie on Thursday, Sept. 20, and Barcelona on Thursday, Sept. 27.
