Celebrate Election Day with a ping-pong tournament at Urban Lounge or watch as Spork (featuring City Weekly's most-sought after TV critic, Bill Frost, a man who nearly beat out Big John for a shot as Bret Michael's bodyguard) brings the rock to Club Vegas with Valient Thorr---. Go ahead — give into the fantasy. Rock & roll is meant to be fun, after all. Valient Thorr might be dead serious about their lineage (Venus), but the nomadic rockers live up to the philosophy popularized by Kiss. With every rafter-swinging, whiplash-inducing party/show, they live it up like Harley-drivin’ live-action role players dressed in skuzzy-dude garb. What’s more, VT walk the talk, matching their image and back story with chops good enough to merit opening slots for Motorhead and Fu Manchu. 445 S. 400 West, 8 p.m.
