Tech N9ne with Krizz Kaliko, 8 p.m. Friday, Bourbon Theatre. Rapid-fire Kansas City rapper Tech N9ne and his touring partner Krizz Kaliko hit the Bourbon last January, a month after he dropped "The Storm," a 20-song album featuring guests such as Korn's Jonathan Davis and Gary Clark, Jr. They're back to pack the place again.
Pop Evil with Ded and the Rewind, 8 p.m. Saturday, Bourbon Theatre. Michigan hard-rockers Pop Evil return to the Bourbon for the second time in 2017 and this show, like the last one, is likely to sell out. Determinedly independent, Midwestern and powerful, Pop Evil is one of the best hard-rock bands going.
Davina and the Vagabonds, 5 p.m. Sunday, Zoo Bar. Minneapolis’s Davina and the Vagabonds return to Lincoln with their infectious pre-war blend of early blues, jazz and swing carried by horns, drums and Davina Sowers’ piano, powerhouse vocals and highly entertaining personality.
Montréal Guitare Trio, 7 p.m. Sunday, First Presbyterian Church. Hailed as the “hottest guitar ensemble in Canada,” MG3 features a diverse repertoire that spans from fiery Spanish music to spaghetti Western theme songs to the rock classic "Tom Sawyer" by Rush.
UNL Student Dance Project, 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Mabel Lee Hall. The program, directed by professor Susan Ourada, will feature 16 dances choreographed by 15 current students and one graduate. “This is a very diverse show of 16 dances made by 15 current students and one recent graduate,” Ourada said. “It’s a modern dance-based show, but there are influences from jazz and ballet and hip-hop and really anything you can imagine.”
"Soda Pop," 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, Thursday; 2 p.m. Sunday, Haymarket Theatre. Directed by Tom Crew, the lip-sync musical from Lincoln's Jim Hanna is set in the late 1950s Americana and features some of Lincoln's top comedic actors performing iconic musical hits within a silly irreverent play, which makes light of and pays homage to the seemingly "innocent" days of the time period. Performances continue through Dec. 9
"Stupid F##king Bird," UNL Theatrix, 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday, Lab Theatre (Temple Building). Written by Aaron Posner and directed by Paul Schack, the play is a deconstruction of Anton Chekhov "The Seagull." While most of the characters are similar and the plot follows the same essential progression, the new work has been adjusted and adapted for a contemporary audience.
"Lincoln Late Night Live," 7:30 p.m. Thursday, TADA Theatre. Hosted by Bob Rook and Juli Burney, the live talk show features guests over three nights of shows, including Tom Osborne, Elvis tribute artist Joseph Hall, Miss Nebraska Allison Tietjen, John Chapo and his friends from the Lincoln Children’s Zoo, singer Jackie Allen, stand-up comic Brad Stewart, Food Bank of Lincoln's Scott Young, singer Michael Tully, actor Lyn Leach, news anchor Rod Fowler, playwright Becky Boesen and Natalie Tavlin Kadlec, and John Tavlin of the Johnny Manhattan Orchestra. Continues through Dec. 9.
