MUSIC: MARC ANTHONY 8 p.m.,Michelob Ultra Arena, axs.com.

MUSIC: DRAB MAJESTY It’s tough to think of anything more instrumentally rich than the catalog of LA’s Drab Majesty. The neo-goth project, led by Andrew Clinco’s mystifying and androgynous alter-ego Deb Demure, emerged in 2011 after Clinco discovered his solo recordings had started to sound less like him and more like the character Deb Demure would ultimately become. Drab Majesty coolly fuses shoegazey synths and hypnotic baselines to create a sound pulled from a 1980s dream. The aesthetically pleasing duo—which also includes keyboardist/vocalist Mona D—toys with the tension of feeling wholly futuristic and incredibly retro at the same time. You’ll want to dust off the dancing shoes for this one. With Srsq, Luxury Furniture Store, DJ Paulie. 8 p.m., $20, Backstage Bar & Billiards, seetickets.us –Amber Sampson

MUSIC: FOALS In 2016, I saw Foals for the first time—at Brooklyn Bowl, a Vegas venue the band seems to favor (this is their third time back). My girlfriend, who’d had other plans, asked how my night was, and I responded, glassy-eyed, “It was the greatest live show I’ve ever seen.” Now, I could dial that back a bit, and probably should; after all, I’ve seen a lot of live shows, and a good number of them were legitimately great. But there’s something that happens at a Foals show, somewhere between the Zeppelin-esque chorus of “Inhaler” and singer/guitarist Yannis Philippakis’ fearless stage dives, that inspires wonderment, rapture, belief. When Foals hits—which they might do with the Talking Heads-meets-Duran Duran dance-pop of “Wake Me Up,” or perhaps the epic “When I see a man, I see a liar” bit of “What Went Down”—it’s easy to believe that this dynamic, multifaceted British band is one the best ever to do it. Foals make you want to believe. With Inner Wave, Gustaf. 6 p.m., $35-$45. Brooklyn Bowl, ticketweb.com. –Geoff Carter

Gorgon City

Gorgon City

PARTY: GORGON CITY With Moon Boots, Deeper Purpose, Brett Rubin, 9 p.m., Area15 A-Lot, area15.com.

FOOD & DRINK: THE WHISKYX There’s only one Las Vegas event where you can sample an extensive and curated list of premium whiskey selections poolside overlooking the Strip while watching a live band and enjoying a cigar and a beard trim. Funny thing is, WhiskyX is not an only-in-Vegas event; it also has upcoming dates in Miami, New York and Atlanta. But the touring spirit-based experience is always elevated, literally and figuratively, when it lands at the Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool. The 2022 version includes tasty bites from STK, Momofuku, Hattie B’s Hot Chicken and more; haircuts and trims provided by the talented team from the Barbershop Cuts & Cocktails; and a performance from Birmingham soul-rock outfit St. Paul & The Broken Bones, which should satisfy locals who miss the days when Cosmo rooftop concerts were a regular thing. 7 p.m., $75+, Boulevard Pool, ticketmaster.com. –Brock Radke

Steve Lacy

Steve Lacy

MUSIC: STEVE LACY It might be the hottest ticket in town on Halloween, and it doesn’t require a costume. Steve Lacy’s Give You the World tour lands at the House of Blues at Mandalay Bay Monday night, which feels just as out-of-nowhere as the sizzling success of “Bad Habit,” the trippy R&B phenom’s moody smash that ousted Harry Styles from the No. 1 spot on Billboard’s Hot 100. Certainly, it makes sense that the former guitarist of The Internet would utilize TikTok to crack open the charts, but both Lacy and “Bad Habit” are too interesting and funky to be dismissed as social media flashes in the pan. His sound is his own, but it easily slides across multiple genres—the single is the first to reach the top spot on Billboard’s Hot R&B and Rock & Alternative charts. Doesn’t it make you curious what this guy is like when he’s onstage? 7 p.m., $30, House of Blues, concerts.livenation.com. –Brock Radke
