Fresh from winning a leading seven trophies, including top new artist and top female artist, at Sunday’s Billboard Music Awards at the MGM Grand Garden, Olivia Rodrigo is back in Las Vegas, albeit in smaller confines. The “Drivers License” singer is bringing her “Sour Tour” to the Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas at 8 p.m. Friday. The show sold out long ago, but tickets are available on resale sites.

See it at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday through May 29, with additional 2 p.m. matinees May 28 and 29, in Reynolds Hall at The Smith Center. Tickets start at $30 at thesmithcenter.com.

Yeah, Silk Sonic is cool and all, but long before that throwback R&B duo decamped for a residency on the Strip, Vegas had its own old school-minded funk dynamos in The Soul Juice Band. Fronted by singer/harmonica ace David Tatlock, the 10-piece band combines a hair-on-fire horn quintet with purring Hammond B3 organ to supply dance floors with some serious Juice. On Friday, the group will host a record release party for its new self-titled album, with a portion of proceeds and new toys and clothes collected at the show to be given to Child Haven through the Kidz Uplifting Kidz Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to funding normalcy for children in Clark County foster care. The show starts at 7 p.m. at The Usual Place, 100 S. Maryland Parkway. Tickets are $25 in advance, $30 day of show; eventbrite.com.
