    • Las Vaudeville at Bunkhouse Saloon

      The ISI Group has hosted street art- and tattoo-focused events since 2011, all spotlighting undersupported and lesser-known artists’ work. Celebrate five years of community and creation when ISI stages a variety night filled with performances by local musicians like Brother Mister, Jesse Pino and CoCo Jenkins, plus a live art installation optical illusionists, a carnival-themed art auction, an ice luge sculpture, a dunk tank and more.

    • Sabriel's EP release show at Vinyl

      One of Vegas’ most soulful singer-songwriters, Sabriel Hobart, released her self-titled EP digitally in August. Now, the jazzy crooner returns to the stage to give it a proper christening. In 2013, she impressed local music heads and quickly became a name to know after appearing on the R&B scene at just 19 years old. After taking some time off from performing—this marks her first show in two years—Sabriel has re-emerged at her strongest yet, shining with musical depth well beyond her years. September 30, 8 p.m., free. –Leslie Ventura

    • Dolly Parton at Laughlin Event Center

      It’s a hard sell to get Las Vegans to trek out to Boulder City, let alone Laughlin. But if you haven’t experienced the Tennessee country-music icon’s boundless charm, Strip-ready showmanship and multi-faceted performance in person, trust us—she’s easily worth the 90-minute drive. September 30, 8 p.m., $64-$360. –Mike Prevatt

    • Fright Dome & Freakling Bros. open

      It’s barely October, and the haunting season has already begun.

And year No. 24 sees Freakling Bros. offering its usual trio of lurid labryinths, including the R-rated, waiver-required Gates of Hell. September 30-October 31, frightdome.com and freaklingbros.com. –Mike Prevatt

    • Tim Cantor: Sweet Favour & Fiend reception at AFA Gallery

      Mystic trees, hairless Sphynx cats and provocative poetry are just a few examples of surrealist painter Tim Cantor’s works, on display through October 31 inside Fashion Show Mall. The exhibit Sweet Favour & Fiend was inspired by what the artist fears and admires, playing on contrasts between dark and light and showcasing his attention to color and intricate detail.

      You might know Cantor from Imagine Dragons’ No. 1 album Smoke + Mirrors—he created the cover, along with 13 paintings intended to pair with each of the songs (his art also went on tour with the band for more than 60 shows). Along with Cantor, members of the band are expected to be in attendance for this artist reception, which will brings Cantor’s pieces to AFA Las Vegas for the first time following a launch of the same exhibit at New York’s AFA in June. A portion of proceeds from the evening’s activities will benefit the Tyler Robinson Foundation, which supports pediatric cancer care. To attend the free reception, email [email protected] October 1, 6 p.m. –Rosalie Spear

    • Taste at Red Rock Resort

      Fall is food-fest season, and this new poolside event at Red Rock kicks things off in fine fashion, with more than 30 restaurants showing off their flavor. The resort’s eateries are in, along with Vintner Grill, Mastrioni’s, Grape Street, Forte Tapas, Fogo de Chao and many more. October 1, 7-10 p.m., $80, sclv.com. –Brock Radke

    • Tycho at Brooklyn Bowl

      The song starts with the aural equivalents of a sunrise and a breeze, a warm synth note transitioning to another, followed by a whooshing effect and soft, tom-drum thumps. The just-released “Epoch” recalls a downtempo version of European deep house—and Tycho’s unforgettable introduction to Las Vegas in 2014. In a parking lot in the middle of Downtown, Scott Hansen and crew accentuated the natural elements—including a gorgeous sunset—while inducing a zen-like groove.

      If you were there, you know Tycho’s first local headlining performance at Brooklyn Bowl is a must-attend occasion. And if you weren’t, imagine a headswimming, rhythmic performance devoid of the gimmicks or artificial synth bombast, endowed instead with angelic guitar melodies and beats steadily pulsing from an actual drum kit. Tycho is the real deal. With Big Wild, Heathered Pearls, October 4, 7 p.m., $25-$30. –Mike Prevatt
