This week’s 5 best bets for music in Las Vegas

311 Day

How much 311 can you take, tough guy? Test your rap/reggae rock mettle when these long-running hybridists bring their “311 Day” festivities back to Vegas for the first time in six years. In 2012 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena, the band’s set list spanned nearly 80 songs over two nights. See if 311 can somehow top that number at 7:30 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at the Park Theater at the Monte Carlo. Tickets are sold out; call 877-795-2564.

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds

Don’t look back in anger, Oasis fans: Those beloved Brit rockers are no more. But at least we have Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, who, in addition to kicking out their own feisty jams, tend to play around a half dozen Oasis tunes. “Go Let It Out” at 8 p.m. Friday at The Chelsea at Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Tickets start at $32; call 702-698-7000.

Stone Temple Pilots

New singer, old hits: ’90s alt-rock radio staples Stone Temple Pilots hit town for the first time with former “X Factor” runner-up Jeff Gutt on the mic. Be sure to get to the show early: Vegas power trio the Dirty Hooks are opening the tour at 7 p.m. Friday at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay. Tickets start at $29.50; call 702-632-7600.

Between the Buried and Me

What would happen if Cookie Monster fronted Rush? Well, they’d probably hit the road with Between the Buried and Me, who likewise pair death metal gutturalisms with prog rock ambitiousness in songs that are equally sweeping and scabrous. They’ll be stopping in Vegas in support of new album “Automata 1.” See them at 6 p.m. Thursday at the House of Blues. Tickets start at $25; call 702-632-7600.

Flogging Molly

What would this time of year be without a visit from Flogging Molly? A lot less fun. A lot more sober. Yeah, the Celtic punk favorites are coming to Vegas a couple of nights before St. Patrick’s Day, but this just means you’ll have to start celebrating early at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at the Boulevard Pool at The Cosmopolitan. Tickets start at $40; call 702-698-7000.

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)
