Remember when the Goo Goo Dolls used to be signed to Metal Blade Records (where their labelmates included Cannibal Corpse and Gwar) and used to sound like a Replacements knockoff? No? Well, your lady doesn’t either, and let’s face it, that’s the main reasons dudes have anything to do with the Goos: Their soft-scrubbed ballads are so beloved by the fairer sex that they almost make up for you being such an insensitive heel who pees on the toilet seat. See the Goo Goo Dolls at 9 p.m. today at Sandbar at the Red Rock Resort, 11011 W. Charleston Blvd. Tickets are $32.50; call 547-5300.
