    Look, we all know what you’re doing tonight. It’s just a question of where, and how into the costume contests you’ll get. But just, for our sake, make sure to eat a little candy tonight. Your inner 6-year-old will thank you. By all means, go to town on the booze. Just make sure there’s a fun size Baby Ruth in there somewhere, too. (more…)

    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…)

    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…)

    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…)

    Lemmy not included. Sadly. But Slim Jim ain’t a bad consolation prize.

    The Sin City Sinners roll up with Stray Cats drummer Slim Jim Phantom tonight at Brooklyn Bowl (7 p.m.), because you haven’t listened to enough “Stray Cat Strut” lately. Seriously, when was the last time you blasted “Stray Cat Strut” in your living room? Years ago? What are you even doing with your life? Getting your dinner from somewhere other than a garbage can? Total waste. (more…)

    1020MON: THE ROUNDUP

    Irrera
    Dom, not Tom, not Dan.

    If you’ve been saving your trip to Brad Garrett’s Comedy Club for a special occasion, this is the week to break it out. Dom Irrera headlines ($46-$68, 8 p.m.), and anyone who did a stint on Dr. Katz is right by us. And anyone who’s done a voice on Bob’s Burgers is doubly right by us. What we’re trying to say is: We watch too many cartoons. (more…)

    Finally, a night you don’t have to spend shufflin’ your cowboy boots at Stoney’s. (Other than during the ACMAs and PBR, we mean.) The Zac Brown Band is at MGM Grand Garden Arena (7:30, $47-$89). We can’t wait until country music and EDM cross over, so we can just have one big homogeneous stew appropriate for every Vegas occasion. (more…)

    1016THURS: THE ROUNDUP

    Yellowcard
    Poor man’s Eminem likes to keep busy.

    Pop-punkers Yellowcard are at House of Blues tonight with Memphis May Fire (6:30 p.m., $32.50), in case you were sitting around wishing a Warped Tour would break out at any given minute. Which, aren’t we all, in a way? In the very specific way where we can’t wait to fail to ollie in front of a crowd waiting in a beer line before Blink-182 goes on? (more…)

    1015WED: THE ROUNDUP

    LVS
    Jane Russell AND Hoagy Carmichael? It’s like all of our sex dreams come true.

    The Seven Essential Movies series trundles right along at Inspire Theater tonight with The Las Vegas Story To quote Bart Simpson: “Victor Mature, what an actor!” This is some OG Vegas-movie stuff right here, and you’d be remiss not to soak it all in. Howard Hughes made it, and there’s a good chance you’re living on some Hughes land right now. Do it for Hank. Or at the very least, do it so they bring the series back next year and show The Aviator. (more…)

    1014TUE: THE ROUNDUP

    Tossers
    A Celtic band in a pub? What next? Clever allusions to James Joyce?

    The Tossers are a Celtic-punk band. But you knew that already, because they’re called “The Tossers.” If you really want to surprise your audience as a Celtic-punk band, you should probably go with “Ulster Is Quite Nice Sometimes.” Regardless, they’re at Vinyl tonight (8 p.m., $15-$20) and it’s not even St. Patrick’s Day. Feel free to get annihilated on Jameson, though. That’ll play year-round. (more…)
