  • Concert: Mariachi Los Camperos at Water Street Plaza Amphitheater

    Since 1961, LA-based Mariachi los Camperos have been bringing the beloved Mexican musical genre north of the border. Though the members have changed over the years, the music continues to delight audiences, even earning the band three Grammy awards. Jesus “Chuy” Guzman now leads the ensemble, which will descend upon Henderson for a night of vibrant and melodic entertainment. October 8, 7:30 p.m. $10, –C. Moon Reed

  • Residency: John Fogerty at Encore Theater

    It’s Fogerty’s turn to return to his run at Wynn, but this time the rock legend has something different planned. “Last time I was doing my ’50 Year Trip,’ which had a lot of references and recollections of other music and symbolically represented Woodstock,” the 76-year-old singer, songwriter and guitarist tells the Weekly. “For the near future, I’m refocusing on my own recordings throughout my life, and with my kids actually playing in the band, it’s a lot of fun for me to play my songs. It’s a new energy for me and the band.” October 9, 10 & 13, 8 p.m., $75-$250, Wynn, 702-770-9966. –Brock Radke

  • Party: Kaskade at Hakkasan

    The megaclub and restaurant at MGM Grand will be supercharged during the big fight weekend, and one of its biggest resident DJs will be there to take advantage. Kaskade has kept busy bouncing between Vegas gigs and shows at larger venues and festivals around the country, so expect him to hit the right frequency to help launch a massive event weekend on the Strip. October 8, 10:30 p.m., $30-$50+, MGM Grand, 702-891-3838. –Brock Radke

  • Festival: Reggae Rise Up Las Vegas at Downtown Las Vegas Events Center

    Can you feel the vibes? This inaugural two-day Las Vegas music fest—originally scheduled for April 2020, before the pandemic hit—has finally arrived. Headliners include Slightly Stoopid and Dirty Heads, with SOJA, Common Kings, Matisyahu and others set to hit the stage, too. The event also includes plenty of food and craft vendors to enjoy. Who’s jammin’ their way Downtown? October 9-10, $85+, –Evelyn Mateos

  • Gaterhing: Clexacon at the Tropicana

    The battle for healthy LGBT representation in TV, film, comics and literature isn’t over, but the largest multifandom convention in the world has returned to remind us why we’re still fighting. ClexaCon will bring thousands of women, trans and non-binary pop culture fans, content creators and allies together for three days of panels, pool parties, workshops, celebrity meet-and-greets and more. Notable guests include everyone from CW star Bethany Brown (The 100, Charmed) to Person of Interest’s Amy Acker. Authors, artists, directors and producers will also drive panels on various topics of media. The goal is to celebrate the community and the unique talent it has to offer. October 7-10, $60+. Tropicana, –Amber Sampson
