If you missed last year’s animated “Smallfoot” — and, if its less-than-dominant box office haul is any indication, you did — you’ll have plenty of chances to see it over the next week for just a dollar.

Fifty years and countless studded leather get-ups into their career, these British metal pioneers can still back up an album called “Firepower” with ample amounts of its namesake in the form of dual-guitar pyrotechnics and frontman Rob Halford’s octave-leaping wail. See them at 8 p.m. Saturday at The Joint at the Hard Rock Hotel. Tickets start at $49; call 800-745-3000.
