LADY AND THE VAMP: No matter if you love her, hate her or just plain don't understand her, Lada Gaga is taking her massive image into American Airlines Center tonight under the tag of the Monster Ball. You may be asking yourself, "What is a Monster Ball?" Well let's let the Gaga speak for herself. “It’s called Monster Ball, but it’s more of a musical and less of a concert,” Lady Gaga said in a February interview with American Idol's Ryan Seacrest. “It has a New York theme, it’s a story, and the story is that me and my friends are in New York and we’re going to the Monster Ball, and we get lost.” Now that you have a firm grasp on the reality of the situation you better get ready to watch watch happens when Marilyn Manson goes undercover as a pop sensation. The Ball starts a 8 p.m.

Pat has performed around the workd with superstars such as John Mellencamp, Pink Floyd, Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, The Bee Gees and Elton John. When you see her at the Library Bar and hear her renditions of everything from "Unforgettable" and "It Had To Be You" to "Killing me Softly", her individual start power and larger-than-life personality clearly shine. Show starts at 5 p.m.
DEETLES AND FRIES: There is just something rad about seeing live music in a proper eating environment like Fred's Texas Cafe.
