City HallSept 11

Three Minutes Series

City Hall Chamber Gallery

The photo above: The scene is recognizable but somehow other, too, and weirdly graceful. Credit the process described by the exhibit title: Seder Burns’ camera takes three minutes to record each shot, moving left to right in small slices of time. Burns: “The camera is a 1950s 8-by-10-inch camera with a homemade digital back of my own design. I have to haul that around, plus a laptop to control it. Very conspicuous.” Free, artslasvegas.org

Corinne Entratter Sidney

Clark County Library

No surprise they’re calling this talk “The Glamorous Life of Corinne Entratter Sidney” — given her life in the public eye (actress, Playmate), the legendary husbands (iconic Sands boss Jack Entratter; film director George Sidney), even her brush with crime (kidnapped and rescued in 1975), glamour is the word for it. 7p, free, lvccld.org

More specifically, the Fanna-Fi-Allah Sufi Qawwali Party: an ensemble (playing harmoniums, temporas, tablas) performing the music of Pakistan’s Sufis. Could be your new global jam. 7p, $10-$12, 702-455-7340
