Fifty years after hitting the beach, the Boys hit Red Rock Casino.

Hear

The Beach Boys They never stopped touring, so why is it suddenly such a big deal? Two words: Brian Wilson. The man behind Pet Sounds and Smile is back in the fold, joining Mike Love, Al Jardine, Bruce Johnston and David Marks for this 50th anniversary swing. God only knows what he’ll do during “Kokomo.” May 27, 8 p.m., $79-$125, Red Rock Casino.

Childish Gambino He writes for 30 Rock. He stars on Community. And when Donald Glover feels like getting funky, he does that, too, rapping under his stage pseudonym. May 27, 9 p.m., $30, Cosmopolitan pool.

Van Halen The reunited rockers postponed 30 upcoming shows without explanation this week, but their MGM Grand gig is still happening. Plus, Kool & The Gang is opening, which is sure to be … something. May 27, 7:30 p.m., $30-$150.

Go

Junior Dos Santos vs. Frank Mir Alistair Overeem’s suspension left his heavyweight belt up for grabs. Will Las Vegas’ Mir be the guy to take it? May 26, 2 p.m., $75-$800, MGM Grand.

Russell Peters Like Carlos Mencia, Peters specializes in cultural observations. Unlike Mencia, Peters is actually funny. May 26, 10:30 p.m., $50-$100, Colosseum at Caesars Palace.

See
