Who Is She: Comic Joan Rivers has enjoyed a diverse and immensely successful career, which has spanned four decades. Rivers headlines today at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa in Atlantic City.
What To Expect: With her unmistakable voice and heavy New York accent, the 79-year-old Rivers has been entertaining audiences on the comedy circuit for years. In the early years, Rivers' act often revolved around self-deprecating humor, but some of this has faded with time and has been replaced by Rivers' ability to critique others, especially celebrities.
Event Info: Shows start
6 and 9 tonight in the Music Box at Borgata. Tickets, priced $39.50 and $44.50, are available at Borgata's box office, Ticketmaster or
What Is It: A musical tribute to The Beatles, "Beatlemania Now" is being sponsored by the Linwood Volunteer Fire Company No. 1 tonight at Mainland Regional High School in Linwood.
What To Expect: The show brings the audience through a five-year period from 1964 to 1969 with four, sound-alike and look-alike musicians, who capture the spirit and energy of the group. The band wears authentic costumes and uses instruments dating back to the Beatles era. Starting off wearing the famous "Ed Sullivan" suits while performing hits from that early period, they move into the Sgt. Pepper time frame and end up at Abbey Road.
Event Info: The show begins
8 tonight at the high school, 1301 Oak Ave. General admission tickets are $17 in advance and $20 at the door. Tickets can be purchased through myeasytix.com or by calling 877-840-0457. Proceeds will be used to help the Linwood Volunteer Fire Company defray the cost of a new fire truck.
Get the Led Out at the Levoy Theatre in Millville
Who Are They: With their stage show, impressive setlist and dedication, Get the Led Out has been wowing audiences with its tribute to Led Zeppelin. Get the Led Out performs tonight at the Levoy Theatre in Millville.
What To Expect: Led Zeppelin may have been a four-piece band, but it takes six musicians to re-create what was done on its recordings. Get the Led Out puts the music first and foremost, and as a result includes a second guitarist and keyboardist in its live act in order to get a truly authentic sounding Zeppelin experience. They may not look exactly like Zeppelin's famous lineup, but they sure do sound like them.
Event Info: The band plays 8 tonight at the Levoy Theatre, 126 N. High St. Tickets, at $23.50 and $28.50, are available at the Levoy Theatre, by calling 856-327-6400 or visit Levoy.net

What To Expect: All of the hits from Chicago's golden age are included in Brass Transit's show, including "25 or 6 to 4," "Saturday In The Park," "Feelin' Stronger Every Day," "Does Anybody Really Know What Time It Is" and "Color My World."
