Indie-rock favorite The Shins is set to take the stage May 11 at Lake Tahoe’s MontBleu Resort Casino and Spa (montbleuresort.com).

Tickets for this top-billed show are now available and are expected to sell out early. The Portland-based band, led by frontman James Mercer, combines catchy guitar-based rhythm and winsome lyrics to create a distinct rock sound that has made the band an indie touchstone since its debut album in 2001.

Relying on intricate layers of splashed guitar hooks and clever lyrics, The Shins have defined a signature sound over the course of four albums. The group was featured prominently on the soundtrack for the 2004 film “Garden State,” as well as several television shows.

MontBleu continues its sun and ski-soaked spring break tradition of groundbreaking musicians, action-packed entertainment and top-tiered comedy, including the addition of the enormously popular Boogie Nights.

This ultimate ’70s and ’80s dance party is held every Saturday night at 8 p.m. in the Blu Nightclub. Sequins, polyester, spandex and disco balls combine with hip, funky, slamming’ jams and high-energy iconic dance moves on Blu’s 400-square foot floor. Floor grids of LEDs, in a multitude of colors, change with the beat. You must be 21 or older to get into this party. Tickets at the door are $10 or $5 with local ID. Admission is free when dressed in ’70s and ’80s attire.

March Madness means the “BBB” at MontBleu (burgers, beer and basketball) with round-the-clock NCAA college basketball playoff action at The Zone and food specials at Café del Soul, home of gargantuan garbage burger and the sinfully delicious homewrecker.

Hip hop artist, slam poet and artist, Sage Francis, will appear at Blu Nightclub Friday, March 22. His gifted wordplay creates vivid narratives that instigate as well as inspire.

Former Saturday Night Live cast member, screenwriter and film actor Rob Schneider returns to Tahoe, Saturday, March 23, with his trademark blend of character and comedic acting.

The Banff Mountain Film Festival is the largest, and one of the most prestigious in the world. The films bring audiences up-close and personal with adrenaline-packed action sports. The spirit of outdoor adventure will be displayed at the MontBleu Theatre, April 1 at 7 p.m., doors open at 6 p.m.
