0416WED: THE ROUNDUP

Serpentor
DJ Snake. Probably.

Now that they’re even using “Turn Down for What” in movie trailers, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard it roughly 9,837 times in the last three months. But still, if you need to hear it a 9,838th, DJ Snake is at Surrender this evening. Maybe you’ll get lucky and Lil Jon will show up for a live mix featuring exciting new, unexpected yelling.

MADISON’S 1923 MET WITH SETBACK

The Holly Madison-branded 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque that was supposed to open tomorrow night? Don’t get too excited about flappers in pasties just yet.

Due to a construction delay, the speakeasy-themed joint will still be flaunting 90-year-old liquor laws–but just in preview mode from Friday until after May 1. They should’ve claimed it was because they got raided by the Prohis. It would have given the whole thing an air of mystique. And also rekindled public outrage at the Prohis, which this town has, frankly, been lacking in since 1933 or so. Wake up, people. Are we going to let those goons in the Coolidge administration keep getting away with this kind of thing, or are we going to stand up for ourselves by consuming as much Scotch of questionable provenance as humanly possible?

Fine, you can sit there and pretend like there’s nothing wrong, but we’re going to start doing out part, pal.

KATY PERRY, DIPLO GET CLOSE

Well this could make Mad Decent Mondays at XS a tougher ticket. Diplo and Katy Perry were spotted hooking up backstage at Coachella according to Page Six.

“They seemed inseparable and at one point they were seen getting onto her bus together,” quoth some well-placed mole/deliberately leaking PR person. Maybe the bus was stalled and Perry was just going to give it a jump. With her electrostatic-discharging boobs.

BRETT VISITS LORDE, SHE VISITS CHAPEL

LordeWeddingChapel
Going out of your way to prove you can take a photo in a “mirror,” huh? We see what you’re getting at, Countess Lorde.

Lorde followed up her show at the Boulevard Pool last night with a trip to the Little White Chapel, where she Instagrammed her trip. She didn’t get married, that we’re aware of. Though she was awfully cozy with George Brett after the two of them finally met. Maybe she didn’t want to tip anyone off about the surprise ceremony. If anyone caught her musing about why Mike Moustakas hasn’t developed into the hitter everyone thought he would be, we’ll pay good money for confirmation.

It’s been a busy couple of days for former baseball legends. World Series perfect game-thrower Don Larsen was at N9NE Steakhouse. Hearing about Brett’s meeting last night, Larsen is reportedly seeking an audience with Taylor Swift.

Deutsche Bank reportedly has four suitors for the sale of the Cosmo as they seek $2 billion. It’s a lot of dough for a place that hasn’t made money, but if you really want giant shoe sculptures bad enough, you’ll find the scratch.

0415TUE: THE ROUNDUP

Lorde
Sure. Sure she’s not a vampire.

Lorde kicks off the first of two nights at the Cosmo’s Boulevard Pool with Lo-Fang (8 p.m., $40). But tonight’s the night you want to go, because tomorrow’s show is already sold out. Unless you were going to go loiter on the sidewalk at the base of the pool and stare up at the video marquee, we guess. Then it’s really a toss-up depending on your schedule, which, if that’s your plan, we’re guessing isn’t that busy. Click for more words and pictures »

GEORGE BRETT COMING TO LORDE SHOW

GeorgeBrett
This photo also makes us happy, but mostly because it makes us think about pine tar.

As far as inspirations for a song go, we guess Lorde looking at this picture of George Brett is a better one than self-reflective fantasies about being Tarzan, or unconventional methods of detecting infidelity.

It’s just too bad that the song we got out of it was “Royals,” but what can you do. Either way, Brett has agreed to meet the possible 17-year-old/possible vampire backstage before tonight’s show at Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool. (OK, prove you’re not, Lorde. Or should we say, Countess Lorde?)

We assume Brett was just eager to carve out a new association between him and Vegas, considering the story that goes with the current winner of that category.

FLAVOR FLAV COPS PLEA IN DOMESTIC CASE

Flavor Flav, who was in trouble for allegedly brandishing a knife during a domestic incident in October 2012, pleaded guilty to a couple of misdemeanors yesterday. He snags probation and counseling sessions, but misses any jail time. Which will allow him to make the 4/20 premiere of Body High with Corey Feldman. It’s nice to see a happy ending.

MGM announced a partnership with Hakkasan Group in MGM Hakkasan hospitality, to square up “design, development and management of luxury non-gaming hotels, resorts and residential offerings under the Bellagio, Hakkasan, MGM Grand and Skylofts brands.”

Which means they’ll be looking to put hotels and residential in New York, London and Beverly Hills among other global tourist destinations; and Hakkasan nightlife in those hotels. Bellagio London with a Hakkasan inside it? It’d keep Tiesto continuously employed for as long as he cares to keep globetrotting.

Jason Alexander debuted his An Evening with Jason Alexander and His Hair at Harah’s Sunday night. Kerry Simon came out to hang with the former Seinfeld star at the opening reception. Which, of course, was held at KGB. We hope they had hot dogs, George’s favorite sandwich.

Paris Hilton and Kelly Osbourne were fighting over a VIP table at Coachella. Ozzy really has to be on high-rotate in his grave. Or at least the one he should have occupied decades ago.

0414MON: THE ROUNDUP

NaF
Look, we were told there would be nudity. Well? We’re waiting.

New Zealand’s favorite sons when Flight of the Conchords aren’t touring, The Naked and the Famous, are at Brooklyn Bowl tonight along with White Lies and The 1975 (7:30 p.m., $40). We got really excited that a band would dedicate themselves entirely to playing one single Smashing Pumpkins song in a variety of styles, until we remembered the song is called “1979.” Oh well. Time to go start our own band, The Bullet With Butterfly Wingses. Click for more words and pictures »

THICKE DOES REHAB, CROWD GETS HANDSY

Thicke
Oh, Paula’s really not going to like that. (Photos by Scott Harrison | Retna)

Robin Thicke’s “Paula Patton take me back” stage apology tour. Thicke was at Saturday’s Rehab season opener for their new two-day expansion (Flo Rida did the Sunday show) where he was getting felt up onstage by the crowd.

Who’s to say when you’re sitting on the edge of the stage that a bunch of horny 20-somethings that hands aren’t going to shoot out of the crowd to go up your shirt like a junior prom? These things happen. Stop being so judgy, ex-wife who’s shown remarkable patience despite some categorically shady behavior.

Thicke was at 1 Oak Saturday night for Nick Cannon’s DJ set, where he grabbed the mic to shout out the crowd–and Cannon’s muscles. Weird choice, but hey. Maybe once the thrill of being fondled by a bunch of strangers at a poolside concert wears off, you turn your attention to roads less traveled. We’ve never partied with a bunch of naked models in a music video, so we really can’t say how quickly the bloom falls off that particular rose.

MARIO LOPEZ JOINS NOCTURNE STAGE

What do you do when you get a Saved By the Bell star to drop in to your interactive performance supperclub cabaret? After you complain loudly to anyone who’ll listen that it isn’t Dustin Diamond, we mean.

You drag Mario Lopez on stage is what you do if you’re Vegas Nocturne. Lopez was at Rose. Rabbit. Lie. on Friday, where he took part in Piff the Magic Dragon’s act, and then the big set closer ping pong ball fight. Lark Voorhies never pelted an audience with ping pong balls. That we’re aware of. We mean, it’s possible she had a second career in Thailand after all that How High money ran out.

Keeping the ’90s-ness rolling for the weekend, Pamela Anderson was at Lavo on Saturday night. What’s that? Baywatch didn’t deliver all the ’90s nostalgia you’re so desperately seeking? Well how about a side of Full House to go with that.

John Stamos threw a 75th birthday party for his mother, Loretta Phillips on Saturday. First they went to see The Million Dollar Piano before ending up at the adjacent Champagne bar, where Batman Forever’s Chris O’Donnell was kicking it–and wished Phillips a happy birthday. And just in case you were worried this wouldn’t all swallow itself whole in an ouroboros of ’90s-osity, Baywatch’s Jeremy Jackson was there, too.

Moving on to more modern fare, the Light Group is getting into the neighborhood game with a farmers market/small plates restaurant at Red Rock Resort, complete with seasonable and sustainable ingredients, because that crowd needs a second dining option other than take-out from the Summerlin Whole Foods.

Poker pro Phil Ivey caught a lawsuit from the Borgata in Atlantic City, saying he cheated them out of nearly $10 million by edge sorting–exploiting defective cards to gain an advantage in baccarat.
