LIFE ADDS MICHAEL WOODS, TOO

Woods
He brings with him a wealth of quality duckface.

Steve Angello doesn’t have to carry the show all by himself. Life at SLS is also bringing in British producer Michael Woods for a residency of his own, debuting December 19. Please plan accordingly. Woods had been at Hakkasan, and before that was doing gigs at XS. Apparently someone has been busy spinning the Wheel O’ DJs. We can’t wait to see everyone move one spot down the line come winter when the 2015 announcements start coming fast and furious. (more…)

1030THURS: THE ROUNDUP

Here we go. Thursday before Halloween. It is officially on. Tao does Yelloween tonight, with $25,000 up for grabs including $10,000 for the best group costume and another $5,000 for the runner up. They’ll also have contests for individual costumes. Or you can go as all the Village People with a puppet rig and try to sweep all the categories. (more…)

SUGE GONNA BE SUGE

suge
Suge is so hardcore he smokes his cigars with the lit end in his mouth.

The rising comedy duo of Suge Knight and Katt Williams were up to their usual hijinks, like taking a papparazzo’s camera in Beverly Hills. “Detectives spent weeks building their case, which remains ongoing, in order to obtain the arrest warrants, authorities said,” according to the Los Angeles Times. Presumably they were detectives from the Suge Knight Task Force we assume the LAPD definitely has.

Knight was picked up in Vegas, while Williams was popped in Los Angeles. Knight faces up to 30 years in prison for the incident, which would be 30 years more than he got for dangling Vanilla Ice over a balcony. Though it’s likely that wasn’t a crime in 48 states when Suge did it. (more…)

1029WED: THE ROUNDUP

The canary in your Halloween coal mine: Chateau, which is doing its industry Halloween tonight instead of waiting until Friday. Take THAT, clubs where people aren’t going to dressed up and all the girls will dial it up from “cleavagey” to “improbably celeavagey.” Seriously, Halloween is the best. (more…)

CANSECO AND GUNS DON’T MIX

Canseco

Human red Solo cup Jose Canseco is recovering after shooting himself in the hand while cleaning a gun. Dammit, Jose. Why do you even have guns around? You know it’s not safe. Ozzie could get into them. He gets into everything. Every responsible gun-owner knows you have to keep your firearms in an approved safe with Ozzie-proof locks on it. Did you see what happened when you left baking chocolate and flour in the low cupboard in the kitchen? You were cleaning half-assed “cookie dough” off the walls for weeks. What did you think was really going to happen with a gun? (more…)

1028TUE: THE ROUNDUP

Lit
Someone took this photo–voluntarily–and released it to the world. Voluntarily.

Hey, you remember that time in ’99 when everyone couldn’t get enough Lit? “How ’bout that Lit?” they’d ask. “Is that Lit on the radio? I want to hear some more Lit” they’d say. “Someone get me the license to that Lit song for every movie trailer this year,” studio executives crowed. Then everyone shook off the effects of collectively being clobbered over the head with a frying pan, and Lit was never heard from again. Until now, when they’re at Brooklyn Bowl(7 p.m., $22). Lit, everybody!

ANGELLO MOVING NORTH TO SLS

Angello
Steve Angello, who may or may not be here to make out with you.

Former Swedish House Mafiosi Steve Angello is jumping ship from his Wynn residency to SLS, where he’ll be doing Reflections starting November 22. Among the more hilarious press release piffery:

“”For the last 10 years that I have played Las Vegas I’ve been on the lookout for the perfect venue that focuses on the guest experience rather than the money making,” Angello, presumably straight-facedly, says.

Right now the November date is Angello’s only one on the Life calendar, but something more or less monthly would seem to be the norm. (more…)

1027MON: THE ROUNDUP

The good news is now that it’s officially Halloween Week, your chances of seeing girls in costumes is increasing exponentially. The bad news is it’s only Monday, so your chances still aren’t spectacular. Still, a few is better than none, and Jermaine Dupri is at XS tonight for Jermaine Dupri Strikes Back: The So So Def Saga Continues. Dammit, Jermaine. Taking your naming conventions from George Lucas is a terrible idea. Or do you need to watch Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace again? (more…)

FIRE UP THOSE HOCKEY RUMORS

Hey, we heard there was a public health crisis going on. Have you traveled to Canada or Finland lately? Because it seems like you’ve got a gnarly case of … hockey fever.

PLAY IT ON LOOP

The New York Post reports that insurance mogul (ladies.) William Foley is looking to bring a team to Las Vegas. Andrew Barroway supposedly wants to flip the Coyotes after landing a controlling interest in the team, and Barroway is being advised by Las Vegan and half-brother to NHL commissioner Gary Bettman, Jeffrey Pollack. Wheels within wheels within pucks within nets.

SERIOUSLY, PLAY IT ON LOOP

The league denies the ‘Yotes would be involved, but it hasn’t denied that a team could be settling up in that new MGM arena behind New York-New York. And with the Wranglers out of the picture, there won’t be any scrappy band of upstarts to inspirationally fend off a corporate challenge to their lovable local hegemony. Hmmm ….

FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, PLAY IT ON LOOP

KIM KARDASHIAN, KANYE BIRTHDAY IT UP AT TAO

With Kanye in town to do a disappointingly drama-free Life Is Beautiful performance, Kim Kardashian jumped on the opportunity to celebrate her 34th birthday at Tao/debut her Sexy Mummy Halloween costume.

Kardashian dragged Yeezy to the club, plus Khloe Kardashian, Malika and Kahadijah Haqq, Robin Antin, Jonathan Cheban, Simon Huck and mother Kris Jenner–who brought Justin Bieber’s particularly media-savvy manager along.

The club was filled with paper Kim Kardashian: Hollywood masks that were in no way creepy. Somehow, that didn’t keep Matt Kemp away, who swung over the table to say hello.

Speaking of Kanye, the leaky Planet Hollywood contract team is feeding more info to TMZ, this time about a proposed deal that would’ve seen Ye do nine shows at the Axis to the tune of $4.5 million. Please. That doesn’t even cover one tour’s glittery mask budget. (more…)
