HEAR

Tenacious D Saturday night choices for fans of Jack Black and Kyle Gass: 1. Stay on your couch and fall asleep rewatching The Pick of Destiny; 2. Go to the House of Blues and see the real deal surrounded by fellow D heads. Do the right thing. With The Sights, July 28, 7:30 p.m., $54-$84.50.

Kelly Clarkson & The Fray The original American Idol shares a bill with the Denver alt-rockers (and openers Carolina Liar) for a night sure to be chock full of self-empowering anthems and piano-heavy rock tunes. July 27, 8 p.m., $75. Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea Ballroom.

GO

The Lalas Burlesque Show The LA-based burlesque troupe strips down to the sounds of Muddy Waters, Tom Waits and Al Green the last weekend of every month at the Palms Lounge. They’ve toured with Ricky Martin. What’s good enough for Ricky is good enough for you. July 27 & 28, 8:30 & 11 p.m., $30.

Cowboy Mounted Shooting Association Championship It is what it sounds like: cowboys on horseback shooting targets for glory and our viewing amazement. (Don’t worry; they’re blanks). August 1-4, 9 a.m., free, South Point.

SEE

The Pact The latest in the Sci Fi Center’s ongoing series of new indie horror movies from IFC Films is a slow-burn haunted house story that’s been building positive word-of-mouth from critics and fans. July 28, 8 p.m., $7.

EAT

Le Thai-Great Bao Pop-Up Chef Sheridan Su’s Great Bao takes over Fremont East’s Le Thai for a multi-course dinner set to include Thai-style ceviche, purple potato spring rolls, soft shell crab and more. July 29, $35, Le Thai, reserve at sheridan@greatbaolv.com.

Lee’s Park and Party Surely, you’ve experienced a free pour at a Lee’s Discount Liquor. This event, at two lucky locations, is like that—on steroids. Beer, wine, spirits; they’ll even give you something to sip from. Oh, expect food trucks, too. Saturday, July 28, noon-4 p.m., 780 S. Rampart & 1385 S. Boulder Highway.

  • If the venue continues to book rising stars, it might just be the best place to see them before they get big.

  • There were loud sing-alongs and vigorous mosh pits throughout the night, but it was all still fueled by nostalgia.

  • The band, which turns Velvet Underground songs into pizza anthems, hits LVCS on November 16.
