Now that the weather is cooling down to a refreshing 95 degrees, food fests are popping up like crazy for the next two months.

Rock In Rio Pre-Sale Begins September 19

September 17, 2014 at 11:48 AM | by | Comments (0)

There's still no official word on any of the acts (oh, but the whispers), but if you're going to the US debut of Rock in Rio here in Vegas in May 2015 no matter the names the pre-sale begins Friday, September 19.

Folks who signed up for first chance at the (expected) $295 per weekend tickets began receiving emails alerting them to the pre-sale earlier this week. Those eager beavers will have from September 19 to the 25th to lock in up to two general admission weekend passes or one VIP day pass. On September 26, the general public will get their first go at tickets with what's being termed as a "limited pre-sale" for them as well. That will begin at 5 p.m. PT.

AVN Wants To Teach You What Sex Is This Pornuary

September 16, 2014 at 1:29 PM | by | Comments (0)

Things you probably won't hear at AEE: "Our eyes are up here."

Well, if anyone knows sex sells, it's AVN.

Every Pornuary (read: January), the Adult Video Network heats up Vegas with the Adult Entertainment Expo (AEE) which puts porn stars face-to-face with very fappy, umm, happy fans. If all the, err, research we they do in preparation for the annual event doesn't teach them everything they need to know about sexy time, new seminars aim to strip it down to the basics.

Die Antwoord Coming To The Cosmopolitan

Where: 3708 Las Vegas Blvd. S. [map], 89109
September 12, 2014 at 1:46 PM | by | Comments (7)

Quite possibly one of the strangest musical acts in pop culture since Ozzy ate a bat, Die Antwoord is difficult to describe. The facts are: They are South African, they are ghetto fabulous, and they are coming to the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan September 28.

Since their explosion on to the scene in 2009, Die Antwoord (which translates into "the answer") has popularized the niche genre of "zef-rave rap." (Zef is named after the Ford Zephyr which became synonymous with the African working class and is considered derogatory slang.) The group makes themselves into a parody of over-the-top "commodity rap" braggadocio while still sending their message about how absolutely bizarre it is live and be raised in South Africa.

First Sheryl Crow, Now Travis Tritt Is Coming To Downtown's Container Park

Where: 707 Fremont St. [map], 89101
August 28, 2014 at 9:42 PM | by | Comments (2)

Editor's Note: This event was cancelled.

The outdoor stage at Downtown's Container Park is usually home to local and regional talent. The first exception was earlier this year when Sheryl Crow held a concert there with proceeds going to charity. The next exception will be September 4 when award-winning country music star Travis Tritt follows in her footsteps.

Tritt is counted as part of the “Class of ‘89” which saw the music debuts of Tritt, Garth Brooks, Clint Black, Alan Jackson and Mary Chapin Carpenter. He marks his 25th anniversary in the industry this year.

Downtown Las Vegas Events Center Is Ready For Action With Food, Music And Fighting

Where: 200 S. Third St. [map], 89101
August 28, 2014 at 12:29 PM | by | Comments (2)

The era of the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center (DLVEC) is about to begin. You may remember last year when Derek Stevens, owner of The D and Golden Gate, purchased an old Vegas courthouse. Now, after its demolition and the creation of an outdoor festival lot, DLVEC is about to hold its first events.

The venue, located behind the D on South Third, will become home to everything from live entertainment to themed festivals. It's capacity, however, might surprise you. The lot is capable of hosting around 15,000 so there will be plenty of room for big concerts, food fests and even fights. The first three events touch on each of those categories:

From E! To The D: 'Men Of The Strip' To Heat Up Downtown Vegas

Where: 301 Fremont Street [map], 89101
August 14, 2014 at 1:14 PM | by | Comment (1)

Sometimes, the best entertainment is when it's stripped down to its bare necessities, amirite?

While the Men of the Strip can now be termed reality stars thanks to a docu-soap on E!, Las Vegas -- the city these sexy sexersons have aligned themselves with since the start -- has only had one brief moment to ogle see them in the flesh. That will change for the upcoming holiday weekend when Men will labor away at The D as part of a limited engagement.

This year's race weekend is set for November 14-16. Snoop will pump runners up at 3 p.m. that Sunday with a pre-race set. All-American Rejects headlined last year, if you were wondering.

Tired Of Traditional Boxing? Try Big Knockout Boxing

August 12, 2014 at 1:19 PM | by | Comments (0)

Boxing has its ups and downs, but it still has its fans as we can see every time there’s a big fight in town. Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has its fans, too, and now there’s a new form trying to capture the attention of both sets of fans. It's called Big Knockout Boxing.

Even though Big Knockout Boxing is positioned to grab the attention of MMA fans it is still boxing. Rounds last only two minutes, with five rounds for non-championship bouts and seven for championship match-ups. You won't find a traditional boxing ring here. Instead a round, rope-less fighting space is dubbed “The Pit." Just 17 feet in diameter, the space is much smaller than traditional rings. The smaller space is meant to force fighters into confrontation.
