Lady Antebellum launches residency at the Palms

The Pearl at the Palms lassos its first country residency when coed chart-toppers Lady Antebellum debut their “Our Kind of Vegas” show. And just what does their kind of Vegas entail? Not totally sure yet, but we have a feeling it involves being a little tipsy at 1 a.m. and needing you posthaste. See Lady Antebellum at 9 p.m. Friday, Saturday and Wednesday, with shows running through Feb. 16. Tickets start at $34.95; call 702-944-3200.
