5 concerts to see in Las Vegas this week

Depeche Mode

“Where’s the revolution?” Depeche Mode frontman Dave Gahan asks in the song of the same name from his band’s latest record, the searing “Spirit,” an album that doubles as an impassioned call to arms. On “The Worst Crime,” Gahan catalogs the societal ills he sees coming at him from all sides: “Misinformation / Misguided leaders / Apathetic hesitation / Uneducated readers.” Perhaps the electronic rock veterans’ most cutting effort, “Spirit” snarls and seethes. “There’s a train coming,” Gahan announces at one point. Get on board at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at T-Mobile Arena. Tickets are $39.50 to $175.00; call 702-692-1600.

The Obsessed

“Sacred,” the first new album from these doom metal forebears in 23 years, will probably live up to its title as an object of reverence for devotees of the steamroller guitar riff. Frontman Scott “Wino” Weinrich brings the rumble with his fingers and the “junkyard screamin’ ” with his larynx, defying time and heavy metal convention at once. See The Obsessed at 8 p.m. Thursday at Beauty Bar. Tickets are $15; call 702-598-3757.

Post Malone

This 22-year-old MC first made a name for himself a couple of years back with the stoned, singsongy “White Iverson,” a littany of laid-back boasts that floats by like a cloud of exhaled bong smoke. Malone’s debut, the aptly titled “Stoney,” largely follows suit. See him at 7 p.m. Thursday at Brooklyn Bowl at The Linq. Tickets are $30 in advance, $35 day of show; call 702-862-2695.

Rakim

Holding the microphone like a grudge for three decades now, this titan of New York City hip-hop is one of the greatest lyricists ever, so we’ll leave it to him to characterize his style: “The rhyme is rugged, at the same time sharp / I can swing off anything even a string of a harp / Just turn it on, and start rockin’ ” at 9 p.m. Tuesday at Vinyl at the Hard Rock Hotel. Tickets start at $25; call 702-693-5000.

Apocalyptica

When the world most needed a cello version of “Creeping Death,” these noble Finns stepped up to the plate when no one else would.

Two decades ago, Apocalyptica released their debut, “Plays Metallica by Four Cellos,” offering instrumental string versions of ragers like “Harvester of Sorrow” and “Sad but True.” On their current tour, they’re revisiting that record, meaning the Sandman enters The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel at 8 p.m. Sunday. Tickets start at $35; call 702-693-5000.
