Free show. No cover charge. Music to your ears, right?
There’s plenty to do tonight around Lake Tahoe (and the price is right), so no excuses — pick a spot and get loose. All shows are for party folk 21 and over.
- 40 Watt Hype will bring its brand of alternative Latin music, hip-hop and soul to Crystal Bay Casino for a 10 p.m. show in the Red Room. “In the center of California, from a culture that is the underbelly of LA and San Francisco, from the bass bumping out of the ’84 Cutlass to the backyard fiestas, the music of 40 Watt Hype is created — live hip-hop cultivated from the seeds of a favorite dusty soul record with a Latin b side.”
- NVO, a San Francisco-based live electronic music band, will perform at 9 p.m. at Hard Rock Hotel and Casino’s Vinyl, promising to “blast you into space.” No space junk, just a big chunk of electro-funk and cutting-edge EDM.
- The Mick Clarke band will deliver its debut rock and roll performance at 9 p.m. at the Lakeside Inn and Casino, Stateline, Nevada. Clarke has been playing guitar since the days of the British Invasion, and he’s backed by hard-hitting Danny Barnes on drums and Geary Arthur on bass.
- The Miguel Jimenez Cruz Quartet plays at Tahoe’s jazz stop, Moody’s Bistro Bar and Beats in downtown Truckee. The music starts at 8:30 p.m.
- DJ Van Gloryus pays tribute to Phife Dog, A Tribe Called Quest and the golden age of hip-hop in a 9 p.m. party at Whiskey Dick’s Saloon in South Shore. “Tell your mother. Tell Your father. Send a telegram,” Whiskey Dick’s says. Tahoe Blue Vodka specials all night long.
Have fun. And don’t forget to write home — stamps just got two cents cheaper.
