What to Do Tonight: Lady Gaga



Poke her face

In less than two years, Lady Gaga has gone from gawky performance-art curio to scorching pop-music phenomenon. And she’s done it with an arsenal of singles that you probably haven’t gone a day without hearing for the past 18 months. “Just Dance.” “Poker Face.” “Bad Romance.” “Telephone.” Should I stop? Like Madonna before her, Gaga has manipulated pop music, our perceptions of it, and the way we ingest it. Her videos are stunning works of 21st century consumption. Even without the throbbing club beats pounding away behind them, you know something sexy, sinister, and slightly dirty is going on. Lady Gaga’s Monster Ball Tour is a whole other spectacle, a carnival of sights, sounds, smells … There really aren’t too many pop concerts that look like this. Lady Gaga plays Quicken Loans Arena at 8 p.m.. Tickets: $52.50-$178. —Michael Gallucci (follow me on Twitter @mgallucci)
