    Tonight is a mixed bag of music, and there's a lot for the taking if you're on the prowl. At House of Blues, get irie with an intimate Iration show, or catch a local night with the Art Dealers at the Belly Up. Meanwhile at the Casbah, Big Bloom celebrate an album release with Splavender and the Bad Vibes joining in on the fun. What I'm kind of excited about tonight, if I must roll anti-millennial every once in a while, is a show up north, where our friends at the Event Center at Harrah's Resort SoCal are hosting a show with Bryan Adams. I've always resented people mixing him up with Ryan Adams, but when the pair discovered they share a birthday and covered each others' music, it felt okay to appreciate both. The weekend will be here soon enough -- but if not soon enough, tonight can be your night.
