Don’t Miss It

TAPROOT

Won’t you be the most diverse music fan on your block if you catch both Sergio Mendes and ear-pummeling, Michigan-based, nü-metal ear-pummelers Taproot, who perform at 8:30 p.m. Thursday at Wasted Space at the Hard Rock Hotel, 4455 Paradise Road. Tickets are $15; call 693-5066.

MALCOLM SMITH

Part of a two-week Contemporary Art Collective festival called Off the Strip, Bay Area performance artist Malcolm Smith presents a mixed-media show called “Humanimalgamble,” demonstrating how indistinguishable humans are from animals. (Strangely, a Taproot concert proves the same thing.) The free performance starts at 8:30 p.m. Saturday at the Aruba Hotel, 1215 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Call 383-3100.

KEVIN RUDOLF

Hip-hop hit-maker Kevin Rudolf (Flo Rida, Lil Wayne and Nas) headlines the “Let It Rock” tour, also featuring Hyper Crush, Go Crash, Cash Cash and The Audition, at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay, 3950 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Tickets are $17.50-$19.50; call 632-7600.

EVERCLEAR

Can it really be 10 whole years since singer Art Alexakis and his crew were everything to everyone? Oh well, so much for the afterglow. Catch them as an old-timer act at 8 p.m. Saturday at the Silverton Pavilion, 3333 Blue Diamond Road. Tickets are $27.50; call 914-8557.

Don’t Miss It is compiled by Las Vegas Review-Journal reporter Corey Levitan. Contact him at 383-0456 or clevitan@reviewjournal. com

In the Las Vegas Valley, the chances of getting a white Christmas are slim. But this year, you can have a “Knight” Christmas. A Henderson resident has a Christmas lights display that is synchronized to the entrance music for the Golden Knights. GG Misa’s Knights light show is played every 30 minutes from 5 to 10 nightly. His light show consists of two songs: Mariah Carey’s “All I Want for Christmas Is You” and the entrance music, “Le Castle Vania,” from the movie “John Wick.” The display is located at 730 Bollons Island St. (Richard Brian/Las Vegas Reivew-Journal)
