Tickets are on sale now for a show April 11 at the House of Blues. Headlining the bill is a group called Tragedy. What's interesting about this is the venue says the show is a heavy metal tribute to the Bee Gees. I don't know where to begin. For once in my life, I am at a loss for words. Never befor ... More >>

Never trust Moviefone's directions. As an OC noob, I actually expected to get the correct map to Edwards Island Theaters, but the step-by-step instructions left me in the middle of Newport Beach before giving up.

With the Democrats taking the House and threatening to take the Senate at this hour, you might expect the Orange County GOP election night party at the Hyatt Regency Irvine to be a mopey affair.
