Featuring pieces by a host of illustrious American and European glassmakers, including Tiffany, Quezal, Steuben, Loetz, and Daum Nancy, "Style Moderne" offers a look at decorative art produced primarily throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries. Through January 23, 2016. Barrick Museum, 702-895-3381; // on exhibit // Art of GlAss SwediSh import Tove Lo Arrives in vegAs by wAy of stockholm for the fifth AnnuAl iheArtrAdio music festivAl. By tess eyrich Singer/songwriter Tove Lo has been  a radio fxture ever since breaking  into the US market with her 2014 hit  "Habit," a deceptively upbeat pop  song about the self-destruction that  often follows a breakup. As part of its  Daytime Village lineup, she'll appear  alongside Hozier and Nick Jonas at  the iHeartRadio Music Festival, but  before landing in Vegas, she answered  a few questions for us. You really made a name for yourself in the US this year. "I grew up watching David  Letterman, and now I've met him  and played on his show. I'm still kind  of pinching my arm that it's all hap- pening."  Your lyrics are extremely honest; how are American audi- ences receiving them? "Some  people fnd my honesty refreshing  and some people think it's stupid,  and I'm fne with that. I don't need  everybody to like me."  Any dream collaborators? "Courtney Love—she  Instagrammed the lyrics of my song,  saying she loved them. There are so  many women I'd love to write with  because I work mostly with guys,  but I wish I could work with more  female writers." September 18–19. MGM Grand Garden Arena and MGM Resorts Village; V What's the Deal With Jerry? If you have any doubts about comedy kingpin Jerry Seinfeld's cachet in Vegas, just remember this: He's one of only a hand- ful of headliners to fll both Caesars Palace's now-defunct 1,200-seat Circus Maximus Showroom back in the '90s and the hotel's 4,300-seat Colosseum, where he has performed yearly since 2003. The quintessential New York funnyman is still a formidable force in the industry, balancing a hit Web series, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, with the kind of manic touring schedule that would drive most comics into prolonged hiatus. Seinfeld will arrive in Vegas this month for a two-night stint at the Colosseum, where he'll deliver his singular brand of observa- tional humor, musing on—well, nothing of particular impor- tance. September 18–19. The Colosseum at Caesars Palace, 866-320-9763; hear this in season World-renowned conductor Donato Cabrera returns to the podium at Reynolds Hall this month to kick off his second season as music director of the Las Vegas Philharmonic. Now in its 17th year, the orchestra will present its most extensive season yet—19 shows, fve of them frst-time weekend matinees—in the Smith Center's Art Deco–style concert hall, performing works by legendary composers such as Beethoven, Brahms, Gershwin, Mozart, and Rachmaninoff, along with contemporary American talents like Philip Glass and D.J. Sparr. The symphony's brand-new Spotlight Series, meanwhile, invites audiences to experience three small- scale performances—of Baroque, classical, and Romantic music—in the Smith Center's intimate Troesh Studio Theater.
