Kool and the Gang and Christmas sweaters

[THANKSGIVING]

THURSDAY, NOV. 28

All over

Eat like you mean it. Be thankful if you can. Consider going easy on our animal friends, though, with a Vegan Thanksgiving Dinner from the Govinda’s Center, a center for Vedic (Indian) literature and spirituality. 3 p.m.-8 p.m., Govinda’s Center, 7181 Dean Martin Drive, 434-8332, $14.

[CHRISTMAS ROCK]

[FUNK]

Kool & the Gang

One of the most inspired and influential soul, funk and R&B outfits of the 1970s and 1980s will decamp to Primm, where fans will “Have a Celebration.” This is one of the tightest acts in the funk firmament, and they have a new, holiday-themed album to promote. 8 p.m., Star Of The Desert Arena, Buffalo Bill’s Resort and Casino, Primm, $18.70 - $52.70.

[MUSICAL MAYHEM]

SATURDAY, NOV. 30

The Vermin and “friends”

There is something seriously wrong with these people, who formed, somehow, a “band,” probably while drying out at the CCDC. Unlikely reality teevee victims Dirk Vermin and Bob Ruckus and company manage to offend just about everybody while learning to play their “instruments.” (Seriously, one of the best shows in Vegas, if you’re not easily offended.) With the Gashers, FSP, Shotguns n Gasoline. 10 p.m., the Double Down Saloon, free.

[MUSICAL MISCEGENATION]

SATURDAY, NOV. 30

Roddy Radiation & the Skabilly Rebels

Hillbilly music and ska are seperated by a fairly large land mass and hundreds of miles of open water, but they share a common heritage of being shat upon by the Powers that Be, at least before folks discovered that the styles were great for dancing. Finally a band is unafraid to celebrate that common heritage. With the Remedies, the Psyatics, the Mass Distractors, Metiasopheli LV & Drinking Water Musicia. 9 p.m., Las Vegas Country Saloon, 425 E. Fremont St., $12.

[FOOTBALL]

UNLV v. San Diego State

The season opened dismally, with two horrific losses, but with last week’s impressive win against Air Force, UNLV’s Rebels clawed back to a 6-5 winning record and the first bowl opportunity in more than a decade. 7:30 p.m., Sam Boyd Stadium, $5-$30.

[CELTIC MUSIC]

SATURDAY, NOV. 30

Celtic community

musical celebration

The Celts, or Kelts if you must, once straddled all of Western Europe. Now they taunt the world from Ireland, Scotland, Cornwall, Wales and a few other strongholds. Their instruments of cultural preservation are bagpipes and drums and voice, all of which you will find at this concert and recital by singer-songwriter Jesse Ferguson, Desert Skye, Irish dancers and others. 3:30 p.m., Clark County Library, 1401 E. Flamingo Road, Free.

Carlson Education Building, UNLV, free.
