‘Tuning’ in to local music

Chad Plummer wants to educate the public about the other scene in Las Vegas. Forget nightclubs and their performances by mainstream pop stars, Plummer is hoping to “showcase musical acts that would normally fall outside the mainstream perception of ‘Vegas entertainment.’”

Plummer is using the television show Vegas in Tune as the platform to help support the musical community that “locals know and what to see grow.” He is the senior producer, but the show is primarily created by UNLV journalism and film students.

Vegas in Tune just completed its second season, which featured interviews and special performances by local bands, including Dusty Sunshine, GoldBoot, Moksha, Otherwise and Same Sex Mary.

Watch the five episodes at 9 p.m. Sundays on Cox 110 or at UNLVTV.unlv.edu. If you’d like your band to be featured in Season 3, e-mail laurel.fruth@unlv.edu

It’s a good time, this J.J. Abrams-directed, Steven Spielberg-produced movie—a critter picture conjoined with a coming-of-age picture. Joe (Joel Courtney), the young teenage son of a local police officer (Kyle Chandler), is making a zombie movie with his friends in their hilly Ohio steel town. One night while filming a scene on the train platform, an Air Force train derails before their very eyes, some strange boxcar cargo making its presence known. Then the strangeness starts happening.
