    • HoneyHoney at Beauty Bar

      One listen to 2015 album 3 reveals the LA-based duo’s alluring dynamic: assertive, evocative blues-folk blessed with some R&B swing, country sentimentalism, melodic vocal harmonies (led by singer Suzanne Santo) and countless instruments to give it all depth. Underserved Americana music fans will be served dutifully. With L.A. Edwards. July 13, 8 p.m., $15-$17. –Mike Prevatt

    • Jackson Browne at Reynolds Hall

      The 69-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and his seven-piece band hit the Smith Center. Even if you’ve heard “The Pretender” in concert before, you haven’t experienced it quite like this. July 13, 8 p.m., $40-$130. –Spencer Patterson

    • Bassjackers at Daylight

      Summer heats up at Mandalay Bay’s Daylight Beach Club when Dutch electronic duo Bassjackers arrives for a Saturday set. Marlon Flohr and Ralph van Hilst just teamed with another duo, Blasterjaxx, for “Switch,” a runaway train of a tune certain to catch extended play this weekend. July 14, 11 a.m., $20-$30. –Brock Radke

    • Local Brews Local Grooves at House of Blues

      Vegas musicians of all styles—rapper Mike Xavier, indie-pop band Glass Pools, soul singer Cameron Calloway, alt-rockers Silversage and others—pair with local (Able Baker, Hop Nuts, Joseph James) and regional (Ballast Point, Green Flash, Stone) breweries for a night of multi-sensory sampling, sponsored by Las Vegas Weekly. July 14, 6 p.m., $40. –Spencer Patterson

    • TLC at Red Rock Resort

      “I’m a fan of all girls and girl groups, it doesn’t matter who they are. I like En Vogue, I like the Dixie Chicks, the Spice Girls—anybody out there doing it, I love them.”

      So says Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas, one-third of one of the greatest and most influential girl groups of all time, TLC, which performs with another great one, SWV, at the Red Rock’s Sandbar pool Saturday night.

      Thomas and Tionne “T-Boz” Watkins have been touring constantly in recent years, headlining big nostalgia tours with everyone from New Kids on the Block to Rob Base. “We just did the [Soundtrack] Music Festival in Canada, and the Goo Goo Dolls and all these rock bands were there. It was awesome,” she says. “Festivals are fun, but they can be exhausting. I prefer when we’re on tour with just a couple acts on before us. But overall I just love being on that stage; we both love it. We’re just happy to do what we love to do.” With SWV, July 14, 6 p.m., $29. –Brock Radke

    • Courtesy Shuttle at Vegas Theater Hub

      Rob Belushi (son of Jim) and Tim Stoltenberg are alumni of Chicago’s esteemed Second City. Their short-form improvisational comedy duo Courtesy Shuttle has rolled across club stages and through comedy festivals nationwide. Hop aboard. July 14, 8 p.m., $15, vegastheatrehub.com. –Geoff Carter

    • Racism: 10 Minutes of Truth at Majestic Repertory

      Social Issues Theatre presents an afternoon of “raw and uncensored skits,” storytelling and conversation on the topic of racism. In addition to actors and singers, performers also include a comedian, a playwright and a Louis Armstrong impersonator. July 15, 1 p.m., free. –C. Moon Reed

    • Vegan Buffet at Tenaya Creek Brewery

      LA-based caterer Southern Fried Vegan serves up an all-you-can-eat vegan feast with down-home dishes like Fried Chickun, breakfast sausage by the Herbivorous Butcher, Rosemary Bakun Cheezey Grits and gluten-free goodies. July 15, 11 a.m.-5 p.m., $24-$36. –C. Moon Reed

    • There are so many new shows at Westgate, it's almost too much to keep up with. Almost.

    • Anne Martinez curently plays Satine in Baz and is bringing her own show, Alice, back to the Red Rock Resort in August.

    • I think people are looking for the next thing [in Las Vegas], and this could be that next thing like Absinthe was in 2011.
