Arts&Entertainment MOVIES + MUSIC + ART + FOOD > TOP CHEF Lowell McCain took top honors at last year's World Food Championships. BODY-PAINTING WRANGLER Three questions with Naked Vegas star Drew Marvick How close is the show to the reality of the work you guys do? It's actually really close. I think largely that's because it's art. These artists are actually painting and creating these things. Each artist has a different way of getting there and has a different technique, and even uses different mediums or different paints. And the producers aren't in any place to tell them how to do it, or when to do it, or what to do first. TRUST US Stuff you'll want to know about GO WORLD FOOD CHAMPIONSHIPS Hundreds of chefs, home cooks and foodies converge to compete in categories ranging from barbecue to chili to sandwiches. Competitions are free to attend, but get tickets to special events—like Saturday's Ultimate Bacon Experience—to sample the goods. November 7-10, Fremont Street Experience. WIESENTHAL This riveting one-man show, written by and starring Tom Dugan, follows the journey of Simon Wiesenthal from concentration camp survivor to famous Nazi hunter. You'll probably, literally, laugh and cry. November 9, 8 p.m.; November 10, 2 p.m.; $38-$42, Smith Center's Troesch Studio Theater. FIREBIRD Head Downtown for Las Vegas Contemporary Dance Theater's take on the classic ballet, which typically features a storybook tale aided by a magical, vibrant firebird. You'll recognize Stravinsky's score from Fantasia 2000, and the choreography should be just as inspiring. November 8, 7:30 p.m., $24-$79. Smith Center's Reynolds Hall. SEE CANON 21 If you missed Jose Bellver's exhibit at Donna Beam Fine Art, be sure to check out his geometric paintings at the Sahara West Library gallery, the former home of the Las Vegas Art Museum. 9600 W. Sahara Ave. HEAR ZOÉ The Brit-pop movement of the early 1990s spawned countless bands, including a Mexican quintet that would concoct the rock en Español equivalent. Fans of Muse, Placebo and even Radiohead will double-take Zoé, just as a large group of non-Spanish speakers did at Coachella in 2010. November 13, 8:30 p.m., $24-$31, the Joint. THE CASUALTIES & MISFITS Invasion of the East Coast punks! Dust off the bullet belt and watch New York's spikey-haired Casualties do their street-punk thing at LVCS on Friday, then head back Downtown Tuesday for Jersey's legendary horror-punk Misfits on the same stage. The Casualties with Negative Approach, MDC, Brutal Resistance, Unfair Fight, November 8, 8 p.m., $17-$22; Misfits with The Attack, IDFI, Guilty by Association, Sector 7G, Brutal Resistance, Roid Rage, November 12, 8 p.m., $20-$25. What do you hope to get out of appearing on the show? Are you NAKED looking to be the VEGAS next Chumlee? I Tuesdays, 10 am definitely not p.m., Syfy. looking to be the next Chumlee. I think that there is only room for one Chumlee in Las Vegas, and he is definitely the best at it. I love horror movies, and one of my dreams is to be killed in as many horror movies as possible. So I'm hoping this could be some kind of stepping stone for that. Are there any high-profile guest stars we can hope to see appear on the show? One would be Penn and Teller. That's probably my favorite show on the Strip, so that was huge. The Jabbawockeez, which was really big, and for me, kind of a surprise. That could be another highlight, since they tried to teach me how to do a head spin. It didn't work very well at all, but it could provide some comic relief. –Josh Bell For more of our interview with Drew Marvick, visit NOVEMBER 7–13, 2013 LASVEGASWEEKLY.COM 39_A&E_Open_20131107.indd 39 39 11/6/13 4:22 PM
