  • The Japanese at Bunkhouse Saloon

    If you still love Imogen Heap’s “Hide and Seek,” you’ll probably dig the vocoded indie sounds of English solo artist Amber Bain, better known as The Japanese House. Her 2019 single “We Talk All the Time” recalls that famed O.C. cut, but Bain’s March album Good at Falling sets the soundtrack to something all her own. October 15, 9 p.m., $18-$20. –Leslie Ventura

  • Surf Curse at Vinyl

    LA’s Nick Rattigan and Jacob Rubeck are Henderson natives who’ve also lived in Reno. Pitchfork just reviewed catchy new album Heaven Surrounds You, so here’s a chance to welcome home two conquering indie-pop heroes. With Dirt Buyer, iexperiencedlove. October 15, $12-$24. –Spencer Patterson

  • Mr. Bizarro's Big Top Boo Bash at Cornerstone Park

    So many circus people call Vegas home that a big top happening like Mr. Bizarro’s Big Top Boo Bash is easy to populate with quality aerialists, acrobats and more. Enjoy a one-off, Strip-level show for cheap. October 18-20 & 25-27, Times vary, $15-$60, –Geoff Carter

  • ArtLive at Zappos Headquarters

    It’s an evening of fashion and art at Las Vegas Fashion Council’s signature annual event, which gives local designers and students a chance to show off their creations on the runway. Attend for the fashion show, art presentations, food and drinks and a silent auction, with part of the proceeds going toward fashion educational scholarships. October 19, 6 p.m., $25-$100, –Genevie Durano

  • Schitt's Creek at The Chelsea

    After the 2016 election, there was talk among certain circles about moving to Canada. The likelihood of folks actually having done so seems fairly unlikely, but for those still needing some northern comfort, Schitt’s Creek, which premiered in 2015, was just the kind of comedic balm we needed. It’s a riches-to-rags story of the Rose family, who lose their fortune save for one asset: a Podunk town called Schitt’s Creek that Johnny, the patriarch, bought as a joke years before. The family moves into the town’s rundown motel, and hilarity ensues. “Keep an eye on these bags,” matriarch Moira instructs her children. “Apparently in hell, there’s no bellman.”

    Eugene Levy and Catherine O’Hara play the parents, and Daniel Levy (Eugene’s son) and Annie Murphy play their grown children. The show, now in its fifth season, has steadily found its groove. The jokes are sharp but never cutting (this is Canada, after all), and the acting is gloriously over the top. As silly as the premise is, this show is all heart. See the cast up close at this Cosmopolitan stop for a night of conversation and laughs. October 19, 8 p.m., $49-$99. –Genevie Durano

  • Flosstradamus at Encore Beach Club

    Chicago’s Curt Cameruci—aka Flosstradamus—is known for bringing the heat wherever he goes. In August, Captain Curt rang in his birthday with a huge moshpit at Hard Summer in Fontana, California, and now he’s returning to Encore Beach Club for another lit—albeit potentially chilly—edition of Nightswim. Turn up. October 19, 10 p.m., $25-$65. –Leslie Ventura

  • Night Market at St. Rose Dominican Hospital

    Celebrate Asian and Pacific Islander cultures at this annual event, which showcases the region’s many flavors, courtesy of local restaurants and businesses—with a side of family entertainment. October 19, 6 p.m., free; San Martin Campus. –Genevie Durano

  • Clairo at House of Blues

    The soft, breezy voice behind last year’s “Flamin Hot Cheetos” is that of 21-year-old electro-pop singer-songwriter Claire Cottrill. Give her debut album, Immunity, a spin before heading to House of Blues for an intimate, lo-fi set. With beabadoobee, Hello Yello. October 19, 7 p.m., $22-$35. –Leslie Ventura
