Katy Perry brings every costume imaginable to the MGM Grand on September 26.

HEAR

Katy Perry Sure, Perry has an unprecedented run of infectious pop hits to play live, but the biggest draw might be her kaleidoscopic stage show, which includes a giant mechanical horse, an inflatable car and Perry dressed as a cat on top of a huge ball of yarn, among other, more understated elements. September 26, 7:30 p.m., $30-$154, MGM Grand Garden Arena.

Spellbound Expert vocalist Kristen Hertzenberg, formerly of Phantom—the Las Vegas Spectacular, returns to Cabaret Jazz with an eight-piece band for a “love-haunted” evening of blues, rock, jazz, folk and country. September 27, 5 & 8 p.m., $29-$45, Smith Center.

Ty Segall returns to Beauty Bar on September 28.

Ty Segall Whether you’ve caught him a half-dozen times or haven’t yet heard him in person, the California garage-rocker will remind you what you love about live music—even that buzzing in your ears in the next morning. With La Luz, Leather Lungs. September 28, 9 p.m., $10-$12, Beauty Bar.

GO

Bunkhouse grand opening Haven’t scoped out the rehabilitated Downtown venue since it reopened last month? No better time than the present, with free admission to an outdoor party featuring drink specials and live sets from Rusty Maples, Richard Grewar and Rose’s Pawn Shop. We’re pretty fond of the night’s sponsor, Las Vegas Weekly, too. September 25, 6 p.m.

HELP

This One's For the Boys Prostate cancer doesn’t see many high-profile charitable events, but with more than 230,000 new diagnoses a year among American men, it should. This 5K run/walk shines a light on this beastly disease and offers economic assistance to those living with it. September 27, registration begins at 8:15 a.m., $25-$30, children under 10 free, UNLV’s Myron Partridge Track Stadium.

SEE

Sweeney Todd The latest “shadow cast” production at the Sci Fi Center features live actors performing alongside Tim Burton’s bloody 2007 musical, starring Johnny Depp as the homicidal title character. The interactive performance is charging extra for “blood spatter seating,” so come prepared. September 27, 10 p.m., $10-$15.
