Crowd-watching should be fun at Casino Regina tonight with Bret Michaels into town to play a show. His biggest claim to fame is obviously his stint as the lead singer for the glam metal band Poison. But Michaels has also performed as a solo artist and done some film and TV work including a Bachelor-style show called Rock of Love that ran for three seasons from 2007-09. Then there was that sex-tape thing he had with Pamela Anderson in 2005.

Anyway, as I noted, he’s at the Casino tonight. To get your neck muscles loosed up, here’s the ’80s-era video for the Poison tune “Nothing But a Good Time”:

And here’s a heads up about a show that’s happening Dec. 13 at the Artful Dodger. It features Ukrainian emigre Yana, who will be performing on grand piano along with local musicians Mike Thompson (drums), Dan Silljer (guitar), Cody Gamracy (bass), Natalia Espinosa (violin) and Luba Krupina (cello).  Opening act is Rachel Persson. Doors on Thursday are at 7:30 p.m., and tickets are $10 adv. and $15 at the door.
