Congratulations to disco-funk-rock stalwarts Dr. Zhivegas, which snagged themselves a weekend residency in Las Vegas for the forseeable future. Although the band is still based here, it's going to fly out every Thursday and perform at the Red Rock Resort every Friday and Saturday, beginning this weekend. (A Sunday show is also happening, at Green Valley Ranch.) Starting in June, the band will play at the Bottleneck Blues Bar the first Wednesday of every month -- but that'll basically be the only time St. Louisians will be able to catch Dr. Z. in town for the rest of 2009.
