5 concerts to see in Las Vegas this week

Kaki King

Ho-hum, another day, another “groundbreaking new multi-media performance that uses projection mapping to present the guitar as an ontological tabula rasa in a creation myth unlike any other, where luminous visions of genesis and death, textures and skins are cast onto an Ovation Adamas 1581-KK Kaki King Signature 6-String Acoustic guitar customized specifically for this production.” See this forward-thinking instrumentalist at 7:30 p.m. Friday at the Historic Fifth Street School. Tickets are $25 for adults, $12.50 for those 17 and younger; call 702-229-6469.

Lil Yachty

Look, snarkier types might equate listening to this 20-year-old rapper with the Lite Brite-worthy grill to the act of gobbling paint chips beneath a power line, but we don’t do that stuff around here, now do we? If “Ballin Like a Piston” is your thing — and we know it’s Grandma’s — join Mr. Yachty at 7 p.m. Thursday at Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq. Tickets start at $35; call 702-862-2695.

SZA

“Where’s Forrest Gump when you need him?” this alt-R&B singer asks on her debut “Ctrl,” released in June, giving the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. founder props for not being a total hornball and trying to get in Jenny’s pants all the time. Her message to the ladies: “You deserve the whole box of chocolates.” See her at 7 p.m. Friday at Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel. Tickets start at $25; call 702-522-8088.

Reverend Horton Heat

Mosh, skank or swing? Tough decisions await those who check out this odd, yet inspired triple bill of psychobilly favs Reverend Horton Heat, alt-funk forebears Fishbone and SoCal melodic punk lifers Strung Out. See them at 7 p.m. Tuesday at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Tickets are $23; call 702-632-7600.

‘Lost ’80s Live’

Your breath will be taken away and then you will totally die in someone’s arms on this very night when Berlin, Cutting Crew and others team up on this bill that salutes that glorious era when “Webster” was still on prime time. The show starts at 9 p.m. Saturday at Mandalay Bay Beach. Tickets are $37; call 702-632-7777.
