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.

"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)
