Fright Night

(R) ★★★☆☆

Hey Twihards—real vampires don’t sparkle in the sunlight, they watch Bravo reality shows in the desert. At least, they do in Fright Night, a funny and frothy (if not truly frightening) remake of the 1985 vamp-camp classic. Colin Farrell has a ball in the showy role of Jerry, a creature of the night who terrorizes a Las Vegas suburb. And up-and-comer Anton Yelchin makes an adorable foil for the forces of darkness. Despite its tepid terror, this Fright’s got some bite.

Fish Circus

If you’ve seen Absinthe, which was recently awarded Vegas Seven’s “Best New Show,” you’d never expect the petite Penny Pibbets—the high-energy, crude-joke-slinging sidekick of the circus tent—to have a band that plays any type of mainstream music. And you’d be right. Fish Circus, the six-piece L.A.-based outfit that Pibbets fronts, is hard to define. Part Gypsy punk, part ska and part art noise, Fish Circus has a sound not often heard ’round these parts.
