  • Hockey: Colorado Eagles at Henderson Silver Knights

    The Golden Knights have a deep and talented roster this year, which means their top farm team will be loaded with NHL-ready players, on top of the rising prospects learning and biding their time. That should translate into some high-caliber hockey, and a chance to get a close view of some potential future stars. Not to mention, Silver Knights games are fun, affordable and don’t involve Strip traffic or parking. October 15, 7 p.m., $38-$121, Orleans Arena, hendersonsilverknights.com. –Spencer Patterson

  • Production: Lady Gaga

    Gaga won one of her dozen Grammy Awards for her 2014 collaboration with Tony Bennett, an album of covers titled Cheek to Cheek. The duo’s follow-up, Love for Sale, was released last month after the pair performed together twice in August at Radio City Music Hall. Battling Alzheimer’s, Bennett and his team announced that this will be his last album, and those were likely his final performances. Among the legend’s last Vegas appearances was his unannounced performance to help Gaga open the “Jazz & Piano” portion of her residency in January 2019, a show that returns to Park MGM this week, continues through Halloween and might never have happened were it not for their unique musical friendship. October 14, 16-17, 8 p.m., $175+, Park Theater, 844-600-7275. –Brock Radke

  • Laughs: Gilbert Gottfried's Dirty Comedy Festival

    “Working blue.” That’s a show business euphemism for performing risky and willfully profane comedy, and with this comedy showcase in the Plaza Showroom, Gilbert Gottfried intends to go headlong into the wild blue yonder. Gottfried and his cohorts—“Pitbull of Comedy” Bobby Slayton, AVN Awards co-host Thea Vidale and Comedy Central regular Patty Rosborough—will double down on jokes that offend, shock and maybe even make you laugh despite yourself. October 15-16, 8 p.m., $30-$45, the Plaza, 702-386-2110. –Geoff Carter

  • Art: Juan Muniz: Child-ish

    Illustrator, muralist and toy designer Juan Muniz is one of Las Vegas’ favorite lowbrow artists, known for his lifestyle brand Ninobuni World, his character Felipe the Bunny and his VGK-inspired Golden Misfits designs. Most importantly, Muniz uses his work to promote mental health. Don’t miss his one-day-only solo exhibition, Child-ish. The show, which will feature 10 new, large-scale art pieces, a limited print release and a live auction, benefits FEAT of Southern Nevada, a nonprofit autism support organization. Muniz will also paint live alongside with Liam, an 11-year-old boy with autism. October 14, 7-9 p.m., free, Ricci’s Room inside Maceoo at Aria. –C. Moon Reed

  • Drinks: Downtown Brew Festival

    After missing 2020 due to, well, you know, the annual outdoor tasting fest returns for its ninth year. Two hundred craft beers will be served from more than 60 breweries, including local favorites (Able Baker, CraftHaus, Lovelady), visiting mainstays (Modern Times, Rogue, Stone) and at least a few you’ve probably never tried before (Iceland’s Einstök, anyone?). Several eateries will also be on site, and Tomorrow’s Bad Seeds, Band of Gringos and Sunrise Sunset will provide the musical accompaniment. October 16, 5-9 p.m., $35+, Clark County Amphitheater, downtownbrewfestival.com. –Evelyn Mateos

  • Concert: J. Cole

    In his documentary, Applying Pressure: The Off Season, Grammy-nominated rapper J. Cole likens the creation of his May LP to training on the basketball court. “I put myself through drills,” he says in the documentary. “I really tried to work on my craft to just reach new heights and push myself, so that’s why I call it The Off Season.” Cole’s work paid off, with his sixth studio album topping the Billboard 200 upon its release. He’ll bring some of its songs—and others—to life, with support from 21 Savage. October 16, 8 p.m., $78+, MGM Grand Garden Arena, mgmgrand.com. –Amber Sampson
