  • Concert: The Rhyolite Sound at The Tank

    Lots of live entertainment options are returning to the Vegas Valley, but there’s only one place for great music combined with real live shark watching. The Golden Nugget’s pool complex kicks off the new Honky Tonk at the Tank summer concert series Saturday with local rockabilly-blues outfit the Rhyolite Sound, and the pool, hot tub and shark tank will be fully operational during the free show. June 5, 8:30 p.m. Golden Nugget, 702-385-7111. –Brock Radke

  • Music: St. Vincent: Daddy's Home

    The Life Is Beautiful music festival may still be months away, but you can get your fill of St. Vincent now with artist Annie Clark’s sixth studio release, Daddy’s Home. This album is a period piece of sorts—specifically, ’70s New York City—evoking that era’s soul, R&B and rock sounds, with Clark pairing the music with her most personal songwriting yet. The title refers to her father’s release from a decade-long stint in prison, spiraling into Clark’s own thoughts about parenthood. Ever the chameleon, St. Vincent once again delivers a new sonic persona, this one steeped in funk and nostalgia. –Genevie Durano

  • Movie: Raya and the Last Dragon

    The world wasn’t quite ready for Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 59th animated feature when it was released in theaters last March, but now that it’s screening on Disney+, Raya and the Last Dragon deserves an audience. The story of a warrior (voiced by Kelly Marie Tran) and a shape-shifting dragon (Awkwafina) striving to reunite a warring country, this Southeast Asian-inspired fable is compelling, inspirational and visually sumptuous. Gemma Chan, Daniel Dae Kim, Benedict Wong and Sandra Oh round out its top-tier cast. Disney+, beginning June 4. –Geoff Carter

  • Concert: Wiz Khalifa & Future at Drai's

    The crew at Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub has been patiently waiting for the right moment to spring back into full-capacity, big-name-headliner, indoor-outdoor club action. That time has come. After DJ Franzen brought the venue back to life over Memorial Day Weekend, superstar residents Wiz Khalifa (Friday night and Saturday) and Future (Saturday night) mark the return of the Drai’s Live concert series this weekend. Nightlife and daylife have returned but hip-hop is also back on the Strip. June 4-5, times vary, $100+. Cromwell, 702-777-3800. –Brock Radke

  • Art: A Corporate Spy: Supervivencia

    The artist formerly known as Biscuit Street Preacher now goes by A Corporate Spy. It’s not an idle change; ACS has transformed his style into something more richly cinematic. The detailed canvases of his new series, Supervivencia, still nod to his old influences—street art, Basquiat—but they also evoke the anxious yet fascinating times we live in, serving up indictments of political manipulation and screen fatigue. It’s a steadfastly analog warning, sent from our man inside the Matrix. Opening reception June 4, 6 p.m. Recycled Propaganda, 1114 S. Main Street #120, 702-769-4459. –Geoff Carter
