The Brandon Flowers–led, synth-happy Vegas quartet re-emerge with a long-awaited (by some) new album, Pressure Machine. Will it be the second coming of “Mr. Brightside”? Probably not. But the band regularly delivers a full-bodied live performance and will surely toss in a few Hot Fuss classics.

Play “Q” for the day at this assembly of some of the most famous gadget-adorned vehicles to appear in 007 films. The Petersen has put together a collection of 30 cars, motorcycles, boats, submarines, helicopters and scale filming models of aircraft from six decades of James Bond movies. Highlights include the 1977 Lotus Esprit S1 Submarine from The Spy Who Loved Me, a 1999 BMW Z8 from The World Is Not Enough and the 2019 Aston Martin DB10 from Spectre.
