American Carnage Tour: Okay, so the name’s a tad melodramatic, but this is one badass heavy metal lineup that promises to deliver—Slayer and Megadeth and Anthrax. Roar! October 20, 7 p.m., $67-$87, the Pearl.
Frightened Rabbit Bummed you missed Belle and Sebastian at Matador? Quality Scottish pop returns to town less than a month later—and with a much cheaper ticket price. With Plants and Animals, Bad Veins, October 16, 9 p.m., $10-$12, Beauty Bar.
Twang times two Local faves The Clydesdale team with Reno-based Buster Blue, both fresh off fantastic performances at Neon Reverb. Can we get a yee-haw? October 15, 10 p.m., free, Black Door (4640 Paradise Road).
Biscuit Street Preacher Local artist Robby Martin shows his new edge. His primitive and rich narratives of the banal, industrial and everyday get political in From Zenith to Nadir. Through October 29, Trifecta Gallery.
Never Let Me Go Science-fiction fans who like their stories with more thoughtfulness than explosions should check out this subdued, often fascinating drama with a great performance from Carey Mulligan as a clone struggling to find her own identity. Now playing at Village Square, Colonnade.
Terriers Two private detectives—a washed-up cop (Donal Logue) and a former thief (Michael Raymond-James)—are the fall TV season’s most likable duo in this clever drama, which contains some genuine surprises along the way. Wednesdays, 10 p.m., FX.
World’s Largest Margarita 5,000 gallons spring water, 750 quarts lime juice, 396 gallons triple sec, 1,215 gallons tequila, 20 pounds salt, 14-foot tall tank. Cheers for breast cancer fundraising! October 16, noon-9 p.m., Ricardo’s Mexican Restaurant (4930 W. Flamingo Road).
Las Vegas Ski & Snowboard resort passes Yes, we know, mid-October is a little early to be thinking about snow, but you can save significantly by doing so. As in, season passes available from $200 (children) to $550 (adults unlimited) if you purchase by November 1. skilasvegas.com/winter/rates/season_passes.
