ChairsConsider the humble chair. For most of us, it’s a plush pedestal for our lazy-butt, Netflix-based lifestyles, a mere booty receptacle for office work and web-surfing. But in the eyes of artist Brian Zimmerman, the chair is a medium for trenchant social commentary on our health and body issues. Sit on that!  “Greasing the Skids”  is on exhibit at The Clark County Government Center Rotunda Gallery through Sept. 27, with a reception and artist talk 6p Sept. 27

Suzanne VinnikThere’ll be love in the air — literally — at the Las Vegas Philharmonic’s  “Operatic Love”  concert: tenor Cody Austin and soprano Suzanne Vinnik (pictured) will perform opera arias and duets in overtures by stalwarts Puccini, Verdi and Mozart. “Operatic Love” is 7:30p Sept. 28 in Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center, with a pre-concert conversation at 6:45p. Tickets $25-$94. Info: lvphil.org

Every so often, UNLV culls its best jazz students in an arcane ritual called “Dark Harvest: The Musical Soul-Reapening.” Okay, it’s actually called the UNLV Jazz Concert Series,  but you get the idea. The college’s finest musicians take you through a swingin’ set of jazz classics and contemporary tunes. The UNLV Jazz Ensemble performs 7p Oct. 9 at the Clark County Library’s main theater. Free. Info: lvccld.org

UNLV Jazz Concert

Carol BurnettCarol Burnett  was a true comedic trailblazer, proving that ladies could turn us into quivering puddles of laughter as effectively as any one of those hairy oafish man-persons. In this special evening, she’ll reflect upon her career in a freestyle Q&A with the audience — much like she began each episode of her beloved “Carol Burnett Show.” “Laughter and Reflection with Carol Burnett” is 8p Sept. 29 at Reynolds Hall in The Smith Center. Tickets $39-$129. Info: thesmithcenter.com

Long before the office of president devolved into being an elaborately coiffed figurehead for powerful megacorporate interests, there were presidents like Andrew Jackson: ardently populist, brutally decisive and an unapologetic demagogue. Got a problem with that? HE JUST CHALLENGED YOUR FACE TO A DUEL. Satirical rock musical  “Bloody Bloody Andrew Jackson”  is performed 8p Sept. 13-28 and 2p Sept. 22 at Onyx Theatre, 953 E. Sahara Ave. #16 in Commercial Center. Tickets $25. Info: onyxtheatre.com

Bloody Bloody  Andrew Jackson
