Things to do this week in Las Vegas

MUSIC

The Black Keys

A mere four months after supplying some seriously wild-eyed guitar leads and Hunter S. Thompson-worthy visors to Life is Beautiful during their Saturday night headlining set, the Black Keys are back in town, this time at a venue where the soundboard isn’t a football field away from the stage. See them at 8 p.m. Sunday at The Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Tickets are $49 to $129; call 800-745-3000.

MOVIES

‘Frozen 2’

“Frozen 2” may lack anything comparable to “Let It Go,” at least in terms of inescapability, but that doesn’t mean your kids aren’t itching to belt out the new songs at the top of their lungs. Thankfully there’s a place, other than your car, where that’s socially acceptable. The “Frozen 2” singalong edition, accompanied by on-screen lyrics, opens Friday in movie theaters so your little ones can unleash their inner Idina Menzel.

Magical and larger than life, Elsa is the perfect mythic character—but she can’t help but wonder why she was born with powers. What truths about the past await Elsa as she ventures into the unknown to the enchanted forests and dark seas beyond Arendelle? Featuring Idina Menzel as the voice of Elsa, Walt Disney Animation Studios’ “Frozen 2” opened on Nov. 22, 2019. © 2019 Disney. All Rights Reserved.

FOOD & DRINK

StationHaus celebration

It’ll be brews and hoses Saturday at CraftHaus Brewery, 7350 Eastgate Road, No. 110, in Henderson. From noon to 3 p.m., CraftHaus will host a family-friendly event with Henderson firefighters that will include fire-truck photo ops, firefighter meet-and-greets, food from Black Tiger BBQ and “Haus-made” black cherry and vanilla soda. It’s all to introduce StationHaus, a smoked red lager; and a portion of sales proceeds will benefit the Trauma Intervention Program of Southern Nevada. StationHaus will be available on draft or in 32-ounce crowlers.
