"Music Box" has seized the early lead in the race for worst movie of the year by boldly equating Nazism with love of the Three Stooges. Such aggressive stupidity would normally keep people away, but I'm afraid the Costa-Gavras pedigree and the presence of actress Jessica Lange will probably draw people to see "Music Box" despite its galling, chowderheaded metaphors. Be forewarned, however, that "Music Box" does indeed suggest that war criminals disguised as ordinary U.S. citizens reveal their hidden, darker side while watching Larry, Moe and Curly.

There will be no shortage of laughs this summer in Atlantic City casinos, along with other nonmusical attractions. As always, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa leads the chuckle chase with a diverse slate of funny people, from Jerry Seinfeld and Howie Mandel to George Lopez, part-time Media resident Wanda Sykes, and Margaret Cho. Elsewhere in town, the offerings include Bill Maher at Caesars, Chris Tucker (Trump Taj Mahal), Dom Irrera and WIP overnight host Big Daddy Graham (Tropicana)

Back in 2007, when Daryl Hall came up with the idea for his online music show Live From Daryl's House, he was motivated in part by being able to go to work without leaving home. "I've been traveling around the world forever," says Hall, the 65-year-old Pottstown native who, along with John Oates, made up one of the best-selling duos in music history, with No. 1 hits that included "Kiss on My List," "Private Eyes," and "I Can't Go for That (No Can Do). " "But the Internet allows you to turn everything upside down," says Hall, on the phone this week from his house in Dutchess County, N.Y., where Live From Daryl's House is filmed.

SOME MUSICIANS still have nothing but contempt for the Internet. Others, at least, open themselves to the fact that fan-captured, YouTube-posted videos of their concert performances are a positive, viral marketing tool. Then there's the unique and daring ploy Daryl Hall has taken with "Live from Daryl's House," a popular, Internet-only TV show that tonight makes the leap to the stage of the intimate Music Box at the Borgata in Atlantic City, co-starring Hall's kindred spirit and fellow Philadelphian Todd Rundgren.

It's stick-a-big-package-under-the-tree season, and for those who would like to give the gift of music with something more tangible than an iTunes gift card or Spotify subscription, boxed sets conveniently proliferate. The musical bounty includes hefty single-artist sets from a host of big names. Twentieth-century titans Louis Armstrong and Leonard Bernstein have been boxed. David Bowie and Joni Mitchell are releasing self-curated collections. And Bob Dylan's formidable The Basement Tapes , reviewed earlier in my column, have finally seen the light of day in their entirety.

Catch Joel McHale while you can. The hardest-working funnyman in show business is taking advantage of a rare lull in his schedule to bring his stand-up act to the Music Box at the Borgata for two shows (7 and 10 p.m.) on Sept. 13. Soon production will begin on the sixth season of Community , which is moving from NBC to Yahoo Screen this year. The Soup , the weekly show he has hosted for 10 years on E!, will be back in full swing. And he's increasingly active in movies like Blended and Deliver Us From Evil . "I'm one of those people who can't relax very well," says McHale, 42, on the phone from his home in Los Angeles.

ATLANTIC CITY - Behind doors so richly red they glow even amid the glittering casino, the Borgata Resort's Music Box theater on Sunday evening will welcome something it wasn't built for: the Bay-Atlantic Symphony playing the Shostakovich Piano Concerto No. 1 with superstar pianist Yuja Wang. There are no obvious explanations. "It's an eclectic age," says Jed Gaylin, the 17-year music director of the Bay-Atlantic Symphony. "Classical music is no longer 'that stuff.' It's a change of pace.

THE SEA, sand and saltwater taffy used to be the big lures to the shore. Now the major attraction is often the chance to see your favorite club or concert headliners "up-close-and-personal" in a smaller and oft-times more comfortable venue than you'll find the artists playing here in Philly. A perfect case in point, playing both towns within days? Take, please, Big Act in a Smaller Room Lady Gaga . The dance-pop monster lorded last night at the 20,000-seat Wells Fargo Center.

Atlantic City always has been a tough sell to tourists in winter, and tougher still in the Year of the Polar Vortex. Casinos struggle to pull gamblers away from Philly and New York to brave the icy seaside resort, while hotels pray they'll stay a spell. Stories of bad times abound. And Jeff Guaracino is tired of them. The onetime VP of communications for the Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corporation and a board member of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association, Guaracino has been the chief strategy and communications officer for the Atlantic City Alliance (ACA)

Los Lobos/ Los Lonely Boys The three acts on Friday's bill at the Borgata's Music Box, a bill headed by Los Lobos, are linked more by their Latino ethnicity than their musical identity, although all three do know how to rock. Los Lobos long ago transcended their late-'70s origins as "just another band from East L.A.," masterfully mixing American and Mexican forms in work that has grown artier over the years but at its best remains evocative and down-to-earth. Last year they reissued their 1992 masterwork Kiko, along with a CD containing a new live performance of the album.

Morphy Auctions' two-day sale next weekend will offer two categories of collectibles to be found in the nostalgia nook: shaving mugs and music boxes, notably two Regina models expected to bring five-figure prices. In this era of beards and iPods, neither category is much in use any more. The Regina Music Box Co., in fact, ultimately wound up making vacuum cleaners. Still, both categories have their adherents. The 30 music boxes and related machines to be offered at the start of the first session, beginning at 10 a.m. next Friday at the gallery near Reading, were collected by Peter V. Fritsch of Kutztown.

Significant collaborations here: Network for New Music, with its connections to area composers and its long-standing interest in sung words, joined forces with Felyx M (the Mendelssohn Club's 24-member chamber choir) and the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, which has an intelligent subscription base and skill at presenting inexpensive concerts in congenial places. What came out of it was the 80-minute intermissionless program "Philadelphia Voices: O My Earth" Sunday night at the Independence Seaport Museum - an all-vocal program of music by Cynthia Folio, Jennifer Higdon, Thomas Whitman, Jan Krzywicki, James Primosch, and Donald St. Pierre.
