I WANNA GET BLEACHERS

Bleachers—the new side-project from fun. co-founder Jack Antonoff—has already released a couple of songs. Their debut album, Strange Desire, doesn’t drop until July 15, but you can catch the band live at the Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan on June 26 ($20).

LET’S TWIST AGAIN

How about a little respect for Chubby Checker? Back in April, Daryl Hall urged the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame to induct Checker, whose hit, “Let’s Twist Again” won a Grammy back in 1962. Checker, still singing and twisting at age 72, plays Sam’s Town on June 28 ($35).

ON SALE NOW

Aerosmith has been around for more than 40 years, and these guys can still rock “Walk This Way” without the use of walkers. Aerosmith brings their Let Rock Rule tour to MGM Grand Garden Arena on August 2 ($49.50-$149.50) with Slash and his band, the Conspirators (featuring Myles Kennedy).
