  • Concert: Wilco at Brooklyn Bowl

    Over the years they’ve been called an “alternative-country” act, an “American Radiohead” and, unfairly, a “dad-rock” outfit. But Wilco has only ever been one thing: a rousing rock ’n’ roll band built on thoughtful songwriting, Jeff Tweedy’s love of sonic experimentation and a virtuoso gang of players. Stealing a look at previous setlists from the band’s Ode to Joy tour, Vegas might be in for a career-spanning dip into Wilco’s peerless catalog. October 22, 6:30 p.m., $60-$80, –Geoff Carter

  • Concert: Erykah Badu at Craig Ranch Park

    The Amp at Craig Ranch Regional Park in North Las Vegas was just getting started with concerts and community events when the pandemic paused its development. The outdoor venue takes a big leap forward when soul visionary Erykah Badu—still one of the genre’s strongest voices despite not having released an album in more than 10 years—brings her Live From Badubotron tour to town. Washington state R&B singer Allen Stone opens. October 24, 7 p.m., $65-$150, –Brock Radke

  • Party: Zhu at Ayu Moonbeam

    If you want a head start on EDC weekend, Ayu Moonbeam has you covered. Grammy-nominated electronic music producer Zhu brings the rave to the club with new release Dreamland 2021, an experimental quarantine album rife with Zhu’s particular brand of gritty techno and smoothly polished house. It’s a recipe for dance, so get to memorizing the steps. October 21, 5 p.m., $30-50, –Amber Sampson

  • Dance: Contemporary West Dance Theatre's Fall Concert Series

    The nearly 15-year-old Contemporary West Dance Theatre is one of Charleston Heights Art Center’s’ first artists-in-residence, and the celebrated ballet company will be using that home-field advantage to the fullest by staging a concert of not one, but four performed works: “Liaison,” by CWDT artistic director Bernard H. Gaddis; “Our Time,” choreographed by the company’s ballet master Don Bellamy; “Shards” by Donald Byrd; and Alvin Ailey’s “Night Creature.” October 22-23, 7:30 p.m., $10-25, Charleston Heights Art Center, 702-229-6383. –Geoff Carter

  • Concert: Marc Anthony at Michelob Ultra Arena

    Latin superstar Marc Anthony brings his Pa’lla Voy Tour—named after his popular 2021 single—to town for a night. The song is an adaptation of Senegalese band Africando’s “Yay Boy” by Anthony, who has spent his career dazzling fans across the globe with his upbeat salsa material and the party-like atmosphere he creates at his live performances. Join the fiesta. October 23,

    8 p.m., $82+, –Evelyn Mateos
