Six Picks: Our experts pick their favorites for the week

The Toasters

Don’t let the bastards grind you down; kick up some dance floor with The Toasters. The ska pioneers bring their happy “2-Tone” to the Hard Rock Cafe today, with Mrs. Skannotto and The Remedies in support. Tickets are $13-$16 for the 6 p.m. show at the Hard Rock Cafe on the Strip; call 733-7625.

Castle

You can practically smell the incense — and the burning witches — as Castle slowly unfurl their fire and brimstone doom like some old scroll full of pagan incantations. Singer/bassist Elizabeth Blackwell gives voice to the band’s dark vision, alternately seductive and spooky. See Castle, with Demon Lung and Megaton, at 9 p.m. Sunday at The Bunkhouse, 124 S. 11th St. Tickets are $6; call 384-4536.

‘A Good Day to Die Hard’

Wednesday sure sounds like a good day to see “A Good Day to Die Hard.” “Die Hard” die-hards can watch the first four movies in the series on the big screen leading up to the 10 p.m. premiere of the latest installment. The action starts at noon at Red Rock Resort (tickets are $25 or $20 for Regal Crown Club members) and 12:15 p.m. on the XD screen at the South Point (tickets are $25).

‘Anything Goes’

Going, going — and there’s not much time to catch “Anything Goes” before it’s gone. The Tony-winning revival of Cole Porter’s tap-happy musical, featuring such classic tunes as “You’re the Top” and “I Get a Kick Out of You,” winds up its Las Vegas stay at 7:30 p.m. tonight and 2 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at The Smith Center for the Performing Arts, 361 Symphony Park Ave. For tickets ($24-$129), call 749-2000 or go online to www.thesmithcenter.com.

‘Splendor in the Glass’

It may be only February, but hints of spring are breaking out all over the Las Vegas Valley, including the beginning of an annual string of opportunities to eat (and drink) well while doing good. The first is “Splendor in the Glass,” a wine- and beer-tasting event that benefits Vegas PBS, which is from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday at the LVH, 3000 Paradise Road. Tickets are $90 on the day of the event or $75 in advance at VegasPBS.org, Lee’s Discount Liquor, Total Wine & More and Whole Foods Market.
