Cost: $10
Description
: Combining a delectable array of original soul, rock and funk, Home Cookin’ delivers it with a serious amount of eye-popping energy and the popular Vegas-based act is back in action. In these times of canned soul-less music, Home Cookin’ makes it a point to sock it to fans every time with slammin’ original funk. Home Cookin’ swells to a massive 10 talented players, including a five-man horn section. With their 1997 debut album “Mmm, Mmm, Mmm,” and their 2000 release of “Pink in the Middle,” Home Cookin’ made a name for themselves on the West Coast and have been voted “Best Local Band” and “Best Local CD” several times during those years. Having been compared to the likes of Tower of Power, they have been shakin’ the butts of West Coast audiences for more than a decade. Home Cookin’ was one of the first local Las Vegas acts to play top casino showrooms on the strength of their original material rather than covers. Their music remains a legacy to the Las Vegas scene.

Artist: dredg
Date: Saturday, July 30
Time: Midnight
Cost: $15
Description:
Bay Area rock band dredg will soon release their new album, Chuckles and Mr. Squeezy, which is the fifth release in more than 15 years.

For nearly eight months, beginning last winter, the band members sent songs back and forth over e-mail, allowing the tracks to slowly build and layer under individual microscopes. The resulting album is almost like opening a new chapter of a book. The players are familiar and it still sounds like the work of the same artist, but the tones have shifted and the setting’s changed.

Although the tones and pacing shift as the album progresses, the songs all fall under the category of what Hayes calls “dark pop.” “The Thought of Losing You,” driven by a surging guitar riff, achieves emotional depth through simplicity rather than over-complication, while “Upon Returning” pairs rough-edged guitars with Hayes’ ambient vocals that soar in juxtaposition with the grinding instrumentals. A shadowed mood hovers under the music, lending a sense of pensive introspection to the songs, but in the end the album emerges as a beacon of optimism.

Artist: Dilana
Date: Friday, August 26
Time: Midnight
Cost: $14
Description:
Born in Johannesburg, South Africa, the girl known by age two as Dilana Smith discovered a love for music at an early age, participating in school and church choirs as an escape from an unpleasant home life. Inspired by such visceral singers as Janis Joplin and Tina Turner, she left school at sixteen to follow her own dreams and soon found herself with a promising music career in Holland, becoming one of the country’s most coveted live acts. Her 2000 album Wonderfool scored five singles, four videos and a string of touring and festival gigs throughout the region.

By way of Houston, she made it to L.A. and wound up auditioning for “Rock Star Supernova.” Although most fans expected her to win, Dilana came in second to Canadian vocalist Lukas Rossi during the competition’s finale. Unfazed, America’s newest rock vixen mounted an initial solo tour and more recently opened for Rockstar Supernova, earning consistently stellar reviews.

Chateau Nightclub & Gallery Nightclub Red Carpet Pictures

Being excited to see Nicki Minaj last night, some of my excitement went away after I found out she was not showing up.

But, we did get to meet and take pictures of Jayde Nicole, of “Holly’s World,” and 2008 Playboy Playmate of the Year. She hosted the last night’s event at the Gallery Nightclub at Planet Hollywood. She is super cute!

And from ABC family’s MAKE IT OR BREAK IT, Cassie Scerbo was celebrating Her 21st Birthday at the Chateau Nightclub & Gardens. Cassie is very sweet and wanted her brother and sister in the pictures. She wanted to show them off!

Playboy Club Keeps the Party Hopping with its Signature Libation, the Bunny Tail

Playboy Club Keeps the Party Hopping with its Signature Libation, the Bunny Tail

In honor of the upcoming Easter weekend and the fabled Easter Bunny, Playboy Club inside Palms Casino Resort highlights one of the most distinguished fashion traditions of the legendary Playboy Bunnies – the Bunny Tail, also the name of the nightclub’s signature cocktail, available now. Created by Mixologist Dave Herlong, the libation is a creative blend of Limoncello, San Pellegrino Limonata sparkling soda and choice of Ketel One, Ketel Citroen or Don Julio Blanco. Garnished with a lemon wedge, the Bunny Tail is topped off with a puff of cotton candy. Served with the Pellegrino and mini bottle of liqueur on the side, partygoers are always in for a visual and mouth-watering treat as they pour the sparkling soda and liqueur over the cotton candy, witnessing the cotton candy dissolve with the rest of the concoction. For $15, Sin City’s sexiest socialites can party and play alongside the beautiful Playboy Bunnies while indulging in the refreshing sweetness of the Bunny Tail.

PLAYBOY CLUB

Playboy Club once defined an era and has re-emerged to serve as the perfect complement to the Las Vegas scene. Playboy Club is located in the Palms’ Fantasy Tower and is connected to the cutting-edge Nove Italiano and the exclusive Moon nightclub by glass and mirror-ensconced escalators. Every design element is custom made for Playboy Club, from the bunny buttons on the sofas to the collage wallpaper in the bathrooms featuring every centerfold from the last 25 years covered in shimmering glass beads. A wide range of wine, spirits and liquor are available. Playboy Club introduces a complete integration of lounging and gaming; an exclusive VIP area called the Fireplace Lounge features dark tones, a cozy fireplace, its own bar and sophisticated furniture. Central to the main room is a gaming pit, which offers blackjack and roulette. Design details reflect the iconic image of the Playboy logo and capture the lifestyle the Playboy Club has always, and will always, represent to the world. The entire theme is presented in an elegant, understated manner, as the nostalgic era of the Playboy Club is updated for 21st century Las Vegas in a way only the 9 Group could do it. Each month, Playboy Club hosts the Miss Playboy Club Model Search, where contestants compete for a variety of prizes such as inclusion in the Playboy Club annual calendar and the once-in-a-lifetime chance to appear in a future issue of Playboy magazine. Playboy Club is open seven nights a week, from 9 p.m. until late. For additional information, please visit http://www.playboyclub.com/ or call 702.942.6900.
