The Foo Fighters and Nirvana. That’s a double bill that you’ll never see, for obvious reasons. That said, file this one under: Next Best Thing? Friday, the Fooz Fighters and Smells Like Nirvana are set to share the stage at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Tickets are $15 and the show starts at 7 p.m.
FAST AND FURIOUS
Faster Pussycat, Los Angeles hair metal mavens whose moniker comes from a Russ Meyer movie, are returning to Las Vegas on Saturday for a show at Count’s Vamp’d. Tickets are $10 (and include a free drink), and the show’s at 9:30 p.m.
If you’re fond of Dio, the dearly departed metal god who first brandished the horns, then this show will be of great interest. Featuring former members of his band, Vivian Campbell and Vinny Appice, Last in Line is due at Count’s Vamp’d on Thursday. Tickets are $15. The show’s at 11 p.m.
Kyle Gass, one half of the titanic talent known as Tenacious D, is set to play Backstage Bar & Billiards on Friday with his group, the cleverly named Kyle Gass Band, with help from Strange Mistress and Irie. Tickets are $11 to $15; doors are at 8 p.m.
LAW AND ORDER
