Lil Baby

Lil in moniker if not buzz, this 24-year-old Atlanta rapper has racked up 6 billion streams in the past 18 months with his spare, hazily melodic, Auto-Tuned trap music, where he contemplates a rough-and-tumble past while eyeing a better future. “Drip Harder” at 7:30 Friday at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Tickets start at $42.50; call 702-632-7600.

‘To Kill a Mockingbird’

In the hands of Aaron Sorkin and Jeff Daniels, “To Kill a Mockingbird” is one of the hottest tickets on Broadway. But if a quick trip to Manhattan is out of the question, the 1962 film adaptation of Harper Lee’s classic novel isn’t too shabby, either. Gregory Peck won his only Oscar as Atticus Finch, the Alabama attorney who defends Tom Robinson, a black man accused of raping a white woman. See “To Kill a Mockingbird” on Sunday and Wednesday at Colonnade, Orleans, Red Rock, Sam’s Town, Santa Fe, South Point and Village Square.
