    This is the official Viva Las Vegas Car Show thread. You read the title correctly, Brian Setzer and Dick Dale will be headlining the 2016 VLV Car Show!

    Hotel rooms at the Orleans are already booked but there are nearby hotels that you can inquire about, and most of those have free shuttle buses to & from . Gold Coast (former VLV location) , RIO, Palms - just to name a few.

    Viva Las Vegas is April 14 - 17, 2016 . The actual day of the Car Show is Saturday April 16th.

    We will have a huge Gasser display , a historic Hot Rod display , Drag Racing simulator, and for the first time ever - a Swapmeet and Cars For Sale Corral !

    The pre 1964 Car Show is FREE to the first 500 that register their cars online. This includes car, driver, and one car show only wristband.

    He's playing at the car show, which is outside, of course, so if you're determined to hear him, you can stand outside the fence and listen, but single day tickets to the car show are relatively cheap: like 20 or 30 bucks.

    I'm bummed that I can't go, because I love Setzer's music, and another of my favorite bands is playing, coming all the way from Sweden for VLV. Give a listen to Emmy Lou and the Rhythm Boys:

    God, I love her voice!

    You can't hear them from outside, though. I think the only way you can hear the bands in the ballrooms inside is to buy a "high roller" ticket, which gets you into everything. It's a bit over $100 for the high roller tickets, and they get you into more stuff than you possibly take in. I'm a particular fan of the pool parties, where the music is good, and chicks (and even a few blokes) are dressed in vintage swimwear. If you're into tattoos, the whole place, pool parties, car show, and just the casino in general are full of more cool tattoos than you'll see anywhere.
