Before he was the Aceman, king of all podcasting, Adam Carolla was the funny guy who kept Dr. Drew (Pinsky) from getting too technical on “Loveline.” Now the two are doing a reunion tour and taking your calls today from the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Tickets are $19-$45 for the 9 p.m. show; call 632-7600.

See the band at 9 p.m. Saturday at Favorites, 4110 S. Maryland Parkway. Tickets are $7; call 796-1776.

You must remember this. But in case you don’t, a digitally restored version of “Casablanca” is returning to theaters for a day. See them play it again at 2 and 7 p.m. Wednesday at Sam’s Town, Santa Fe Station, South Point and Suncoast.

Dan Reynolds
