  • Nine Inch Nails at The Joint

    Maybe you missed Trent Reznor’s alt-rock heroes when they sold out the same Hard Rock Hotel venue three times in June, or maybe you’re a superfan who catches the band every time it’s in Vegas. Either way, with shoegazing favorites The Jesus and Mary Chain signed up to support, now’s a great time to get closer to Nails once again. With HMLTD. November 30 & December 1, 8 p.m., $68-$74. –Spencer Patterson

  • Love's Labour Lost at UNLV'S Judy Bayley Theatre

  • Parade The Collective at Core Contemporary Gallery

    With six Las Vegas Strip shows currently in production and an ownership stake in a seventh (Blue Man Group), Cirque du Soleil’s local footprint amounts to a small army of creatives. They seem pretty happy in their jobs, but if you do the same thing day-in and day-out—even if that thing is the most amazing acrobatic feat someone from the Midwest has ever seen—you’re likely to start feeling stuck in a rut. You’ll feel the need to sharpen your chops, to swerve out of your lane.

    That’s where PARADE The Collective, now in its 13th year, comes into play. A group show comprised of Cirque performers and crew, PARADE allows Cirque’s many talents to indulge their love of painting, photography, sculpture, costuming and multimedia art. Tell you what: Just check out the opening night reception on December 6 at 6:30 p.m. and mingle with the artists and crew members themselves. Like all Cirque productions, PARADE makes much more sense if you just commit to jumping in at the deep end. December 1-29, Wednesday-Saturday, 11 a.m.-4 p.m., free. –Geoff Carter
