Lets you Read the life


Dee Snider (Twisted Sister) has created a dark rock show called Van slot gacor Curse, running this weekend Oct. 20-21 at 8 p.m. at The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.

Every year around Halloween, Snider and his 18-piece gothic orchestra stage the show, a tale of despair, anguish, and all that good stuff brought about by All Hallow’s Eve.

Snider was on Penn Jillette’s radio program today to promote the show, and he mentioned that he and his wife Suzette will renew their wedding vows in a gothic 25th anniversary wedding ceremony to take place during the Saturday performance. Sounding a bit too happy for a gothic ceremony, he did mention that “there’ll be no bibles present.”

Tickets are $15 and $25 at The Joint at Hard Rock and through Ticketmaster.com.

For those who can’t make it, Snider also has a DVD of the show for sale at his website. Cost is only $5, including shipping.

If you tune in to KXNT-AM 840 from 5 a.m. to 9 a.m., you’ll hear Casey Kasem’s daughter on the air every morning.

Kerri Kasem joins the Las Vegas morning show to co-host with Alan Stock. She was most recently broadcasting at KLSX in Los Angeles.

KXNT is also home to Rush Limbaugh (9 a.m. to noon), Dr. Laura (noon to 3 p.m.), and Sean Hannity (3 p.m. to 6 p.m.).

For those outside the listening area, you can also hear a live streaming version at their website.

Composer/lyricist Jerry Herman, the man behind such musicals as Hello Dolly!, La Cage Aux Folles, Mame, Parade, Mack and Mabel, and many others, will be in town for a concert and seminar at UNLV’s Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall.

Sponsored by the ASCAP Foundation, the Jerry Herman Legacy Series runs Oct. 19-21. In addition to the concert/seminar by Herman, master classes will also be offered in musical theater performance.

In 1999, Herman was commissioned by Steve Wynn to write a Broadway-style musical for The Mirage called Miss Spectacular. It was never ultimately produced, but you can catch some of the songs during the concert.

Ticket prices are $35, $50, and $80 and can be purchased at the UNLV Performing Arts Center Box Office and UNLVTickets.com.

First mentioned a couple months ago, we received an update.

Those attending conventions in Las Vegas can now avoid lines at the airport by checking in luggage and receiving boarding passes at the Convention Center.

You actually do not need to be a guest of The Venetian nor an actual convention attendee.

The service costs $20 and is currently only available for Southwest at Airport Speed Check Advance kiosks at the Convention Center from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority hopes to increase the service to other carriers soon.
