If you grew up in California East, er Las Vegas, during the ’90s, your CD collection likely included Snoop Dogg (pictured), E-40, DJ Quik, Ice Cube and Too Short. You probably dreamed about a concert where California’s entire rap scene performed their greatest hits just so you could throw up your West Coast hand sign and represent for the best coast. That time has come: Those artists invade the Planet Hollywood Theater for the Performing Arts on Nov. 26 for the West Coast All-Stars show. Yes, Ice Cube is more inclined to do a children’s movie than drop another Death Certificate album and Snoop Dogg’s gangster aura has distilled into a charming Long Beach celebrity, but for one night they will all wear their meanest ice grill and act like it’s 1994 all over again.

YIPPY-YO-YIPPY-YAY: I’ve met a bunch of musicians I admire, but only one has received an impulsive bear hug. Funk pioneer George Clinton, whose band Parliament-Funkadelic plays at Fiesta Rancho’s Club Tequila on Oct. 28 ($42), is an inspiration to everyone from Prince to the Wu-Tang Clan; a tireless touring machine who seems no closer to retirement at age 70 than he did at 35; and the most colorfully attired man in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
