The live music event, which makes use of Taverna Costera’s vibey rooftop space, debuts with a solid bill of indie rock and folk darlings, including Sonia Barcelona, Michael Ritcher, Audrey Brazelle, Chris Mendoza and Rachel & Bekah. Yasmin and Taylor also will join their musical peers in a set or two, making this a homegrown celebration locals shouldn’t miss. 5:30 p.m., $10-$15, Taverna Costera, posh.vip. –Amber Sampson

MUSIC: HEMLOCK When we last caught up with local metal legend Chad Smith of Hemlock, the bassist and vocalist forecasted the band would play 150 shows by the end of 2023. That’s the type of passion and ambition at work in this 30-year-old outfit. Hemlock is one of Las Vegas’ greatest indie success stories, as the group has managed to cut 12 albums and support everyone on tour from Ministry to Lamb of God without the help of a major label. And while Smith and his brother, drummer Brian, no longer live in Vegas, they rarely skip their hometown on tours. In that vein, Hemlock will return with a round of special guests at Fremont Country Club before heading to New Mexico. Let’s give the boys a warm welcome back. 8 p.m., $25, Fremont Country Club, backstagebarlv.com. –Amber Sampson

Human Nature

Human Nature

MUSIC: HUMAN NATURE Australian harmony specialists Human Nature are coming up on their 15th anniversary as Las Vegas headliners, an astounding feat for any musical act. When they first landed on the Strip—ushered into town by none other than Smokey Robinson—they were a quartet of relatively unknown-in-the-U.S. singers looking to make their mark with Motown sounds. They’ve proven their talent and exceeded all expectations while starring on multiple local stages, and more recently have shifted into a trio and taken up a new residency at the South Point. The current Human Nature show comes full circle with a focus on those soulful classics that paved the way, but the boys are still satisfying longtime fans and impressing new ones every night. Thru 5/23, 6:30 p.m., $45, South Point Showroom, ticketmaster.com. –Brock Radke

MUSIC: KEITH THOMPSON’S PIANO PARTY 7 p.m., Composers Room, thecompo-sersroom.com.
