The lineup — which features Carrie Underwood, Dierks Bentley, Kenny Chesney and more — is unbelievably stacked. Tickets are $75 to $349 for the three-day event that kicks off Friday.

Red Fang

Before Red Fang hauls its hellacious hard rock to California for Desert Generation Fest, the Portland, Oregon, band is set to stop by Backstage Bar & Billiards on April 7 for a show with Golden Void and .bipolar. Tickets for the gig, which starts at 7 p.m. are $14 to $16.


Santigold — whose latest album title, “99¢,” is a nod to the glaring divide between art and commerce — is due at The Foundry at SLS Las Vegas on Saturday with Leikeli47. Tickets for the dynamic double bill start at $25. Doors open at 8 p.m.


Geographer is set to survey the local landscape this week. The San Francisco-based band brings its beguiling sound to the Bunkhouse Saloon on Tuesday for a show with the Crookes and Glass Pools. Tickets for the gig, which starts at 8 p.m., are $8 to $10.
