Put down that Budweiser can and switch off CMT. It’s time to mosey over to “Blue Collar Comedy Tour” comedian Ron White’s show at 10 p.m. today and Saturday at the Terry Fator Theatre in The Mirage, 3400 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Tickets are $69.90-$91.90; call 792-7777.
ERIC BURDON & THE ANIMALS
Apparently, the original Animals took “We Gotta Get Out of This Place” literally. None of them has toured with Eric Burdon in decades. But that’s OK. Who remembers anyone but the singer? Feeding time is 8 p.m. Saturday at Aliante Station, 7300 Aliante Parkway, North Las Vegas. Tickets are $22-$33; call 547-5300.
Los Lobos is Spanish for the Lobos. Just funnin’ ya. It means the wolves, which explains the title of the Mexican-American band’s most popular album, 1984’s “How Will the Wolf Survive?” A quarter-century later, these wolves are not only still surviving, but with virtually the same lineup. Watch them attack the Silverton, 3333 Blue Diamond Road, at 8 p.m. Saturday. Tickets are $27.50; call 914-8557.
Even if you know nothing about classical music, you can bring a date to “Encore!” and not appear dumb. Performed by the Nevada Pops under the direction of Richard McGee, the bill will include songs from “The Lion King, “Superman,” “Mission: Impossible” and other things you can actually name. Batons swing at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at Artemus Ham Hall at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, 4505 Maryland Parkway. Tickets are $15 for adults, $10 for students, seniors and military, and free for kids under 5; call 895-2787.

The horsing around starts at 8 a.m. and lasts until at least 4 p.m. today through Sunday at the South Point Equestrian and Events Center, 9777 Las Vegas Blvd. South. Admission is free; call 797-8055.
