Rock it


OKG7 things to do

Gazette staff

They don’t just give away nicknames like The Red Rocker; they have to be earned. Sammy Hagar has been “Livin’ It Up” with “Heavy Metal” and “Mas Tequila,” so the dude is a bona fide rock star (dressed in red, get it?). See the former Van Halen frontman with The Wabos, Tom Keifer and more, starting 7 p.m. Saturday at Grand Casino Hotel and Resort, 777 Grand Casino Blvd. in Shawnee. Tickets are $45-$75. Call 964-7777 or visit grandshawnee.com.

The Grand Budapest Hotel

The Grand Budapest Hotel — with its polarizing auteurism — is quintessential Wes Anderson.


Comedy

Phil Bacharach

There isn’t much middle ground when it comes to how one feels about Wes Anderson, the filmmaker behind Rushmore, The Royal Tenenbaums and Moonrise Kingdom. His meticulous visual style and unflagging quirkiness have won both ardent fans and detractors; one viewer’s delight is another viewer’s preciousness.
