My Children!  My Africa!Sept 19

My Children! My Africa!

The choice between education and violence sits at the heart of this Athol Fugard drama about South African apartheid, as a “humble and humane” black teacher tries to convince a student to make the right decision. Through Sept. 28, $13.50-$15, unlv.edu/calendar

 

City HallSept 11

Three Minutes Series

City Hall Chamber Gallery

The photo above: The scene is recognizable but somehow other, too, and weirdly graceful. Credit the process described by the exhibit title: Seder Burns’ camera takes three minutes to record each shot, moving left to right in small slices of time. Burns: “The camera is a 1950s 8-by-10-inch camera with a homemade digital back of my own design. I have to haul that around, plus a laptop to control it. Very conspicuous.” Free, artslasvegas.org

 

Corinne Entratter SidneySept 4

Corinne Entratter Sidney

Clark County Library

No surprise they’re calling this talk “The Glamorous Life of Corinne Entratter Sidney” — given her life in the public eye (actress, Playmate), the legendary husbands (iconic Sands boss Jack Entratter; film director George Sidney), even her brush with crime (kidnapped and rescued in 1975), glamour is the word for it. 7p, free, lvccld.org

 

BongosSept 19

Sufi Qawwali Party

Winchester Cultural Center

More specifically, the Fanna-Fi-Allah Sufi Qawwali Party: an ensemble (playing harmoniums, temporas, tablas) performing the music of Pakistan’s Sufis. Could be your new global jam. 7p, $10-$12, 702-455-7340

 

BunkhouseSept 30

Bob Mould

Bunkhouse

There’s no better reason to visit this refurbished downtown venue than to watch the former Hüsker Dü frontman sing his heart, lungs and larynx out, accompanied by gales of deeply felt guitar. 8p, $15-$20, bunkhousedowntown.com
