  • Connective Tissue Reception at Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art

    “I like to make things that combine science, technology, art and design,” neuroscientist-turned-artist Amanda Phingbodhipakkiya told NBC News in August. Now, the New Yorker’s large-scale murals and installations are being featured in the UNLV exhibition Connective Tissue. Catch her at the opening reception or see the art through February 22.

  • David Crosby & Sky Trails Band at Red Rock Resort Ballroom

    As detailed in the new documentary Remember My Name, 78-year-old singer-songwriter David Crosby is in the midst of one of the most prolific periods in his storied career. He has released four albums in five years and is working on a fifth, and he’ll play a lot of that new music (along with Byrds and CSN classics, of course) at his Vegas tour stop Friday night.

    “It’s a combination of stuff,” Crosby tells the Weekly of his recent output. “When we were doing the first [album] in this series, I was coming out of CSN. We were no longer friends, and what happened was I left and it was like diving off a cliff. And then it was like growing wings halfway down the cliff.”

    Crosby continued to work with his son James Raymond and started collaborating with Snarky Puppy leader Michael League. “That joy of finding people really committed to making music who were not stuck just trying to make the maximum amount of money really inspired me. I’m happy, so I’m writing, and being with these people is a gift from heaven.” September 13, 8 p.m., $34-$64. –Brock Radke

  • Felipe Esparza at Treasure Island Theatre

    “Daddy, are we gonna be late to school?” “No, you guys are gonna be late to school. Don’t involve me in your problems.” The hilarious LA comic is coming to Vegas, and believe us, you’ll want to be involved. September 13, 9 p.m., $35-$48. –Geoff Carter

  • Travis Scott at Marquee Nightclub

    New Netflix documentary Look Mom I Can Fly provides an in-depth look at the Grammy-nominated rapper, father and all-around perfectionist. Stream it, then get even closer when the Marquee resident and brain behind Astroworld stops at the Cosmo nightclub. September 14, 10:30 p.m., $50-$100. –Leslie Ventura

  • Future Scars at Starbound Tack

    Led by vocalist and illustrator Eliza Lutz, this New Mexico indie four-piece got proggy on 2018 album Harrow, which the band dedicated to survivors of sexual violence. With Chefs, Farangs, Brian Gibson. September 14, 9 p.m., donations accepted. –Leslie Ventura

  • Deep Purple at House of Blues

    This influential U.K. band is more than the sum of its riffs, though it has some great ones (“Highway Star,” “Smoke on the Water”). Purple helped invent hard rock—and the band is happy to prove it live. With Joyous Wolf. September 14, 7:30 p.m., $100-$155. –Geoff Carter

  • Fifth Anniversary Party at Crafthaus Brewery

    This is one house party you don’t want to miss. CraftHaus is celebrating five years of slaking the Valley’s thirst, pouring 30 craft beers in the parking lot—local and out-of-market brews. $35-$55, September 14, 6-11 p.m., 7350 Eastgate Road #110. –Genevie Durano
