SPORTS

Savannah Bananas

They’ve gone from an oddity that popped up on your social media feed to their own ESPN docuseries. Now, the Savannah Bananas are bringing their brand of Banana Ball — think the Harlem Globetrotters, but with baseball and more dancing — to Las Vegas. Zack Frongillo, the Bananas’ director of entertainment, brought the team some of the showmanship he learned during his 3½ years as the villain in the Golden Knights’ pregame show. The Savannah Bananas will take on their archrivals, the Party Animals, at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday at Las Vegas Ballpark. Both games sold out long ago, but tickets are available on resale sites.

MUSIC

Doyle

Doyle — or Doyle Wolfgang von Frankenstein if you’re not into the whole brevity thing — is perhaps best known for joining his brother Jerry Only in punk greats the Misfits when he was just 16 in 1980. But the supremely jacked six-stringer also leads a horror punk band of his own when not out on tour with a reunited version of the Misfits or doing pushups. See Doyle at 8 p.m. Friday at Backstage Bar & Billiards, 601 E. Fremont St. Tickets are $20; backstagebarlv.com.
