Trust Us: Shrek, Deer Tick, the Runnin’ Rebs and other stuff you want to know about

Shrek the Musical wraps up its run at the Smith Center this weekend.


Shrek the Musical Everyone’s favorite fractured fairy tale is now a touring Broadway production, featuring 19 new songs full of dance numbers, lush sets and easy laughs. There’s only a handful of tickets left, though, so don’t waste any time. March 21-24, 7:30 p.m. (with 2 p.m. shows March 23 & 24), $24-$129, Smith Center Reynolds Hall.

Vicki Pettersson Book Signing The Vegas-based novelist will chat with fans and autograph copies of her latest book The Lost, the second installment in her Celestial Blues urban fantasy series. March 21, 7 p.m., Barnes & Noble, 2191 N. Rainbow Blvd.

Deer Tick John McCauley’s folk-rockers have made the rounds in our town over the years (anyone else remember that 2007 Denny & Lee Magic Studio show?). This time they’ll try out the intimate confines of Artifice. With Same Sex Mary, Crazy Chief, March 26, 8 p.m., $11-$12.


UNLV vs. California The Runnin’ Rebels are a five-seed, the Golden Bears a 12, but NCAA Tourney matchups aren’t played on paper, especially when one team basically has a home game (grumble, grumble). Tune in and shout at your TV—it couldn’t possibly hurt. March 21, 4:25 p.m., truTV.

The Real World: Las Vegas A different kind of March Madness: In preparation for the venerable reality series’ latest go-round (Season 28, set in Portland), MTV will re-air the entire ’02-’03 Palms edition. March 23, 2 p.m.

Thelonious & Me There’s still time to experience the abstract, jazz-inspired paintings and collages by Austin-based artist Eric Comstock. Through March 26, TastySpace Gallery at Emergency Arts.


Jo Koy He went to UNLV and launched his comedy career in Las Vegas. Now he’s a regular on Chelsea Lately. Oh, and he does a killer impression of a 5-year-old. March 22, 9 p.m., $45-$60, Treasure Island.
