Though it is illegal for pranksters to shout about nonexistent fires in a theater, shrieking after an encounter with an underseat gum wad is permissible. Shout about what's on stage instead with today's GrouponLive deal: for $30, you get one VIP ticket to any performance by Recycled Percussion at the Tropicana Las Vegas Theater, held every Thursday–Tuesday at 7 p.m., and on Fridays and Saturdays at 9 p.m. starting February 3 (up to a $61 value online, including all ticketing fees). Doors open one hour before the show begins.
America's Got Talent finalist Recycled Percussion feeds spectacle-starved eyes with performances that combine high-speed percussive mastery with gravity-defying acrobatics. In each 70-minute show, the four-man group wrings beats from every available surface, whacking ladder rungs, slapping stomachs, and sawing through struts to craft sounds that get toes tapping quicker than an overbooked podiatrist. Rock and pop melodies underlie the rhythm as the beatmakers throw themselves into antics that take them and their instruments upside down, atop moving surfaces, and into flurries of smoke and sparks. At the door, each audience member grabs a drumstick and a unique noisemaker to join the creative cacophony. VIP seating is located in the front rows, putting guests close enough to discern every tap and distinguish which ones come from the theater's downstairs neighbor hitting the ceiling with a broom.
