Top 10 things to do in Las Vegas this week

Updated April 12, 2024 - 11:10 am

MUSIC

Bad Religion and Social Distortion

One favors sociopolitical commentary and soaring multipart harmonies; the other prefers vintage threads and a bad boy rock ’n’ roll bluster. But the thing that unites Bad Religion and Social Distortion is they’re both true Southern California punk pioneers who have been at it for a combined 90 years. They team up at 7 p.m. Saturday at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Tickets start at $49; axs.com.

MUSIC

Phish

It’s hard imagine the optical and aural deluge — sure to melt eyeballs and ear-holes like an enchilada left in the microwave too long — when jam band greats Phish take over the Sphere. Here’s something even harder to imagine: missing these shows. See Phish at 7:30 p.m. April 18 through 21 at the Sphere. Ticket prices vary; ticketmaster.com.
