Let’s celebrate Easter the way the church intended: Worshipping a golden idol and surrounded by girls in skimpy bunny outfits. Haze tonight does the Hunt for the Golden Egg, where the lucky snooper can haul in raw omelet fixins worth up to $5,000 in cash and prizes. Which you’re going to blow on plastic grass and Cadbury Creme Eggs, because the spirit of Easter can’t be contained. Click for more words and pictures »

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.

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 »

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 »

Dat hat.

Hipster chanteuse Lana Del Rey brings her Williamsburg Warble to the Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea tonight (8 p.m., $35). Just so long as Lorne Michaels isn’t there, she should be fine. And if you miss her, we’re pretty sure you can purchase your own Lana Del Rey off Etsy later on. Click for more words and pictures »

Bonobo
No one should look that sad with a balloon.

Bonobo is at Brooklyn Bowl tonight (8 p.m., $25). The musician, not the chimp. At least we think it’s the musician. How great would it be if it was the chimp? Chimp bowling! Tell us you wouldn’t go every week to see chimp bowling. Hang on, we’ve got to go draw up a business plan. And also rob a monkey cage. Click for more words and pictures »

Empire
Johnny Depp as Tonto: The Musical

Aussie dance-weirdos Empire of the Sun bring their Daft Punk-meets-Muse schtick to the Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea tonight (8 p.m., $35). It’s like someone told Tenacious D to go imagine up outfits for a dance act, and this would be their way of making fun of them before writing another song about the awe-inspiring majesty of Dio.

Sparks
Oooh! We hope there will be elephants.

The circus is back in town, with Clinton Sparks’ Greatest Party on Earth coming back to 1 Oak. We suggest packing 14 of your closest friends into a tiny car and piling out at the valet. It’ll really make that guy’s night. At least until all 14 of you tip him in cotton candy, anyway. Click for more words and pictures »

Did you think just because the ACM Awards were over last night that the ACM Awards were over? It’s actually a fairly reasonable assumption. But it’s wrong. Tonight the Academy of Country Music films its All-Star Salute to the Troops (airing 9 p.m. May 20 on CBS). The roster includes Entertainer of the Year George Strait, plus Lady Antebellum, The Band Perry, Carrie Underwood, Florida Georgia Line, Merle Haggard, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Keith Urban, Luke Bryan, Hunter Hayes, Kellie Pickler, Dierks Bentley and
Lee Brice. Hey, if you have all those country stars in one spot at one time, you may as well milk it for all its worth. Click for more words and pictures »
