Rush Even if you’ve seen Geddy, Alex and Neil in the not-too-distant past (or, like some of us, caught all six MGM Grand shows since 2002), this 40th-anniversary tour stop is not to be missed. Without spoiling the setlist, we’ll just say it’s big and beautiful—and includes chestnuts the trio hasn’t brought to the Grand Garden Arena before. July 25, 8 p.m., $59-$179.
The Generators The LA punks’ 10th full-length, Life Gives ... Life Takes, dropped in 2014, and though the band starkly diverges from its ’90s origins, its brand of West Coast punk continues to rock our pants off. With The Civilians, July 24, 9 p.m., free, Beauty Bar.
EAT & DRINK
Distill's 1st Anniversary The Southern Highlands chill spot is breaking out the leis and grass skirts for its first b-day. There’s no cover for the Hawaiian-style hangout, but there will be a buffet, drink specials and live music. July 25, 7 p.m., free admission.
American Whiskey Experience Sea scallops with summer corn or steak grilled over apricot wood, a great single malt or a concoction of Wild Turkey 101, grapefruit and maple syrup—this is an all-American pairing for the books. July 29, 7 p.m., $90, Andiron Steak & Sea, reservations at 702-685-8002.
South of Town Never mind a bird—put a bullet in it. Artist Sean Russell shot up 25-pound blocks of clay to create abstract ceramic sculptures, on display among large landscape photos of a firing range—where else?—south of town. Through September 11; Monday-Friday, 8 a.m.-5 p.m.; Artist reception July 24, 6-8 p.m.; Clark County Government Center Rotunda Gallery.
Disco Slide Nights Few things rank above taking a dip once the sun has—especially during the summer. Henderson slide ’n’ surf complex Cowabunga Bay makes the premise even more fun by adding a dance soundtrack, accompanying lights and mirror balls—and extending its weekend hours, too. Fridays & Saturdays through August 15, 5-10 p.m., $26 after 5 p.m.; free with daytime & season pass admissions.
