MUSIC: LOS BITCHOS You practically have to squint to spot the overlap portion of a Coachella/Levitation Venn diagram these days, but two acts apparently appeal to both festivals’ target demos in 2023: acclaimed musical chameleon Yves Tumor and rising London band Los Bitchos. Yves isn’t playing a Vegas show this month, sadly, but Los Bitchos is, and it only takes one spin through 2022 debut Let the Festivities Begin! to envision the female foursome setting off parties among vast fields of youngish pop fans in the SoCal desert and tightly packed crowds of longtime psych zealots in Austin, Texas. These predominantly instrumental tunes—which worship old-school cumbia while sprinkling in surf, Morricone and more—radiate fun, so if you feel like getting out and moving around on a Friday night Downtown, the festivities begin here. With Viaje Nahual, 8 p.m., $20-$25, the Usual Place, eventbrite.com. –Spencer Patterson

Sabrina Carpenter

Sabrina Carpenter

MUSIC: SABRINA CARPENTER With Blu DeTiger, 8 p.m., Theater at Virgin, axs.com.

MUSIC: DIZZY WRIGHT Las Vegas hasn’t had many musical success stories as big as Dizzy Wright. So when the Vegas-bred rapper, known for his conscious flows and affinity for smoking weed, returns to his hometown for a set? We welcome him with open arms—and the directions to the nearest dispensary so he can pick up his own Dizzy OG Strain. The son of a concert promoter, Wright grew up around the music business, but even as a young rapper, he vowed to do it his way. The MC has held steady on his goals, releasing scores of independent mixtapes and LPs during as an indie artist while collaborating with Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, Tech N9ne and other mainstays of the hip-hop scene. The 32-year-old’s latest album, Live at Daddy Macs, layers funk over hook-filled flows to create a body of work that’s freeing, danceable and different from much of the mainstream rap on the radio right now. “You Get What You See” is a shimmering example of that experimentation, proving that Wright is in total control of his creative process at this stage of his career. 6 p.m., $4.20-$40, 4301 S. Valley View Blvd. #23, eventbrite.com. –Amber Sampson

More than 45 selections from local and independent breweries curated by the Big Dog’s crew await, and the home team’s signature suds samples will be available—along with a special collaboration with 595 Craft & Kitchen—at the Satellite Beer Trailer. Shore things up with grilled tri-tip or pulled chicken sandwiches among other eats from local vendors, and round out the experience with live music.
