Are they humans?  Or are they... a bunch of humans mashed together to look like a giant monster bug thing?  Answer: Both!  The Pilobolus dancers are experts at blending their bodies to mind-blowing effect.  They perform 7:30 p.m. Oct. 24 at the Smith Center. Tickets $26-$79. Info: thesmithcenter.com.

Eddie Vedder

Okay, it's really quaintly cool that Eddie Vedder can play the ukelele and all, but we won't be satisfied until he beats the devil in a fiddling contest, after which the devil's face melts off -- revealing he was Snooki all along.  Eddie Vedder performs 9 p.m. Oct 31 and Nov. 1 at The Pearl at The Palms.  Tickets $79. Info: palms.com

STillman and Marilyn Clark

Stillman and Marilyn Clark have been photographing the architecture of Las Vegas for 25 years, through building booms, busts, implosions and even that one awkward period when we thought fanny-packed moms pushing baby strollers would save Las Vegas.  Stillman and Marilyn Clark's work is on exhibit Oct. 19-Jan. 20 at the Springs Preserve.  Info: springspreserve.com

Summerlin Art Festival

Art has been known as a gateway drug that Jennifer Egancauses kids to go full-on goth.  So, parents, make sure your kids use their sidewalk chalk responsibly at the Summerlin Art Festival -- which will also feature music, food, crafts and more.  The Summerlin Art Festival is 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Oct. 13 and 14 at the Summerlin Centre Community Park.  Free. Info: summerlinartfestival.com

With featured authors such as Jennifer Egan, Cheryl Strayed and Charlaine Harris, the collective literary IQ of Las Vegas is going to spike the weekend of the Vegas Valley Book Festival.  Brace your brain! The Vegas Valley Book Festival is Nov. 1-3 at the Historic Fifth Street School and other venues.  Free. Info: vegasvalleybook-festival.org
