‘Our Big Concert’ leads this week’s best bets in Las Vegas

MUSIC

‘Our Big Concert’

“The discipline’s left me,” Catfish and the Bottlemen singer-guitarist Van McCann howls early on the band’s latest record, “The Balance,” but it doesn’t sound like it, really, as the Brit rockers maintain their animated, no-frills edge on their third album. They headline the second night of X107.5’s “Our Big Concert,” which also features X-Ambassadors, K.Flay, Grandson and Meg Myers at 6:30 p.m. Friday at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Tickets are $32 to $60; call 800-745-3000.
