Jack White

Jack White’s gone blue, dyeing his hair said shade, an aesthetic complement to the disconsolate tone of his latest record, “Fear of the Dawn.” The first of two albums that White recorded during the pandemic — “Entering Heaven Alive” follows in July — it’s perhaps his most wide-ranging, far-out and exhilaratingly odd record, sampling everything from Cab Calloway to the Manhattan Transfer and even throwing in a guest spot from A Tribe Called Quest’s Q-Tip for good measure. Whether you dig it or not, it’s a new “Dawn” for sure. See White at 8 p.m. Sunday at the Chelsea at The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. Tickets start at $55; ticketmaster.com.

Some old dogs don’t need to learn new tricks, like Original Detroit Coneys, chili-slathered frankfurters first served this week way back in 1917. Topped with mustard and sweet onions, they’re slightly sloppy yet perfect Motor City treats. Celebrate their 105th anniversary this weekend at American Coney Island in the D Las Vegas; it’s open 24/7.

Few are better at goofing on Limp Bizkit these days than Limp Bizkit. The once proudly attitudinal rap rockers have traded nu metal machismo for winking self-deprecation, from the title of their most recent record — 2021’s “Still Sucks,” their first in a decade — to lead singer Fred Durst’s “Dad Vibes” stage get-up, which consists of a scruffy mane, aviator shades, fu manchu ’stache and general air of benign befuddlement. They still “Break Stuff,” only now they do so with a knowing smirk in place of a scowl. See them at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at The Theater at Virgin Hotels Las Vegas. Tickets start at $39; axs.com.
