Shock-rocker Dee Snider recently decided to make a comeback, but he didn't want to settle for a reunion tour with Twisted Sister, his '80s band. Instead he wrote a horror movie, starred in it, and got together with his old bandmates to record a song for the soundtrack. In Dee Snider's StrangeLand, a futuristic thriller, Snider plays Carleton Hendricks, a psychotic sexual sadist who lures victims online, not knowing that one of his victims is the daughter of a detective. Whoops. To fill out the soundtrack, Snider recruited a number of hard-driving rock, metal, and hip-hop bands. And, in a marketing first, several of the groups have joined the StrangeLand Tour to promote the film, which opened last week. Included on the bill are Soulfly, Snot, (hed) pe, and Day in the Life. Unfortunately Dee and the boys won't be on hand when the tour arrives tonight at the Button South, 100 Ansin Blvd., Hallandale. Doors open at 7 p.m. for the all-ages show. Admission is $17. Call 954-454-3301.
Sex just isn't intense enough for some folks, so they like to spice it up with a little make-believe. And whatever your particular tastes, tonight's Battle of the Mistresses is a chance to see what some of South Florida's kinkiest dominatrixes are into. They'll don their best leather and latex and get up on stage with their submissives -- or "subs," as they're called -- to demonstrate their favorite combination of whipping, spanking, bondage, and whatever else turns them on. Within reason. The club doesn't have an adult-entertainment license, so nudity and graphic acts are out. But that just means the mistresses will have to get more imaginative to earn the $500 grand prize. Individual contests will also be held for Best Spanking, Most Creative Fetish, and Most Creative Outfit. The local metal band Lockdown will provide the serenade for the sensual sickness. The contest begins at 10 p.m. at the Button South, 100 Ansin Blvd., Hallandale. Admission is $20. Call 954-923-8356.
