Gavin DeGraw

Gavin DeGraw plays Mandalay Bay Beach on June 14

Thugs for the Memories

Relive hip-hop history with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony at Hard Rock Live on June 13 ($28.50). Sure, I miss Layzie Bone, but Bizzy, Krayzie, Wish and Flesh-N-Bone have no trouble serving up standards such as “Tha Crossroads” and tongue-twisters such as “1st of Tha Month” and “Thuggish Ruggish Bone.”

Cue DeGraw

Gavin DeGraw launched his career with “I Don’t Want to Be” (thanks, One Tree Hill!) and blue-eyed soul pleasers “Chariot” and “Not Over You.” Hear his latest, “Best I Ever Had,” when DeGraw plays Mandalay Bay Beach on June 14 ($49.50) with co-headliner Matt Nathanson (“Kinks Shirt”).
