Kanye West The rapper reportedly confronts Jesus and peddles Confederate flag-adorned merch on his latest tour. If that doesn’t excite you, a massive setlist that includes a slew of hits and all of June’s Yeezus might. With Pusha T, Travis Scott, October 25, 8 p.m., $50-$250, MGM Grand.

Fuzz Don’t know the name? Try this one: Ty Segall. The prolific Bay Area rocker is taking a literal backseat with his new heavy garage trio (he’s playing drums) though not a figurative one (he’s still doing the singing). With CCR Headcleaner, Leather Lungs, October 24, 9 p.m., $10, Beauty Bar.

’80s LVHC Punk Rock Reunion Gig Get one hell of a history lesson from Vegas scene pioneers including Self Abuse, AWOL and the still-together, still-unprintable FSP at this 12-band homecoming. October 25, 6 p.m., $10, Backstage Bar & Billiards.


PBR World Finals The best bull riders in the world try to spend eight very long seconds astride wild beasts with names like Bushwacker, Meat Hook and Chocolate Thunder. Athletes don’t come tougher than these cowboys—or bulls. Through October 27, times vary, $25-$250, Thomas & Mack.

Blood Orgy of the Chainsaw Chorus Line Flamboyant director Steve Velour has a problem. The cast of his Manson-murder musical is being mysteriously killed off one by one. If you’re a fan of Evil Dead: The Musical, catch the last week of this Onyx Theatre grindhouse comedy. October 24-26, 8 p.m., $25.


Halloween Films It’s spooky-movie week in Vegas. Options include: Zombie classic Night of the Living Dead gets a comic skewering from RiffTrax, featuring former stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 (October 24, 8 p.m., $10.50-$12.50, various theaters, fathomevents.com). Scream queen and filmmaker Tara Cardinal will screen two of her new movies, The Legend of the Red Reaper and Scarlet Samurai (October 25, 8 p.m., $5, Sci Fi Center). There are two showings of The Rocky Horror Picture Show with live shadow casts, one from local troupe Frankie’s Favorite Obsession (October 26, midnight, $9, Tropicana Cinemas) and one at the Sci Fi Center as a double feature with The Lost Boys (October 26, 8 p.m., $10).
