Ozzy Osbourne How relevant is the Prince of Darkness anymore? He’s set to appear in a Best Buy Super Bowl commercial with Justin Bieber. Now that’s creepy. January 28, 8 p.m., $41-$83, Mandalay Bay, with Slash.
Downtown Doubleheader Can you catch the Smigel Brothers’ tour stop and Twin Brother’s release show on Saturday? Let’s hope so, for Megan Wingerter’s sake; she plays for openings acts on both bills. January 29. Smigel Brothers, 7:30 p.m., Blackbird Studios (1551 S. Commerce St.). Twin Brother, 10 p.m., Bunkhouse. Both $5.
Jeb Bush and James Carville The Ragin’ Cajun helped make Jeb’s dad a one-termer and called his brother “the most disastrous, incompetent and corrupt” president ever. Watch the two discuss “post-midterm America” at UNLV. Awwkwaard. January 31, 7 p.m., free, Ham Hall, standby only.

B-Movie Night This new monthly screening series opens with nutso Japanese action film RoboGeisha. Any movie featuring deadly breast milk and ass swords must be experienced on a big screen. February 1, midnight, free, Rave Motion Pictures at Town Square. email@example.com for tickets.
The Bachelor Can the I-am-so-awesome-I-rejected-both-finalists-last-season stud find true love on Take 2? Call us cynical but we doubt it. Still, Monday’s “Vegas episode” featuring dates at Aria and Crystals at CityCenter sounds promising. January 31, 8 p.m., ABC.
