PICK OF THE WEEK: “The Queen of Burlesque,” Dita Von Teese, kicks off an exclusive two-night, four performances at The Roxy Theatre on Tuesday, May 17. If you missed Dita’s “Strip Strip Hooray!” the first time around, this is your chance to see the jaw dropping, pants tightening show that brings together the sexiest and most talent strip tease artists from around the world.  Two performances per night at 7 p.m. and 10 p.m., respectively. All shows are ages 21 and older.

One of L.A.’s best and brightest, Golden State, return to their home at the Viper Room on Wednesday, May 18. With a massive catalog of hits and scores of songs placed in TV and film, frontman James Grundler and his band are second to none in local L.A. talent. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. and tickets are $12.

Thursday, May 19 the Key Club presents the stage show spectacle that is Dread Zeppelin.  Celebrating 20 years, the band has cornered a unique niche market covering all your favorite Led Zep hits in reggae style. And if that doesn’t spark your interest, imagine the songs being sung by the “late-years” Vegas Elvis impersonator. Strange as it sounds, the formula must work, as proof by their devoted fanbase and continued longevity. Doors open at 9 p.m. Tickets are $15 for general admission and $45 VIP.

Summer is upon us. In preparation for fun in the sun and shorter (work) days, Asia de Cuba at the Mondrian has launched Out of Office Fridays, a weekly party featuring a $5 food and drink menu and $5 valet parking from 1-4 p.m. Set your out of office auto-responder and get ready for a productive afternoon of day drinking and tanning.

The end is near this Saturday, May 21 when 98.7fm, LA Weekly and The Almighty God partner to present Judgement Day with Saint Motel at The Roxy Theatre. The hype has been building for weeks now… See what the 2010 SSMF alum/art rockers have in store for this concept night of biblical proportions. Vanaprasta, The Hundred Days and Queen Caveat round out the lineup.  Doors open at 8 p.m.

Sunday, May 22 Book Soup hosts comic genius Adam Corolla as he discusses and signs copies of his new book, In Fifty Years We’ll All Be Chicks: And Other Complaints from an Angry Middle-Aged White Guy. This new work has the famed radio host and TV personality doing what he does best: creating a literary tirade of gut-busting social commentary on all of life’s trivial annoyances. Don’t miss this chance to see the philosopher warrior in person. Signing begins at 4 p.m.
