In life and for lists, we love our indy businesses. But when it comes to tire shopping, we vote for the ubiquitous, uniform Discount Tire. The guys there are consistently helpful, upbeat and fast—with “consistently” being the key word. All 19 stores are links in the 53-year-old chain, so everybody’s on the same page no matter where or when you go. Sometimes, corporate predictability’s a blessing. Plus, Discount Tire’s prices and selection are pretty competitive. And there’s nothing like hearing the words “no charge” after they patch a flat tire—one you didn’t even buy there—that threatened to make your whole day terribly unpredictable.

Gorillaz are coming to Las Vegas for the first time ever. 2016’s Grammy winner for best new artist, Chance the Rapper, will return. English rockers Muse will bring their dizzying live show to the streets of Downtown. And that’s just the top of an eclectic bill that features more than 70 acts, along with comedy, interactive art installations, a group art exhibit featuring the work of Mark Ryden, Tara McPherson and Shepard Fairey and much more. Last year saw more than 137,000 attendees trod the festival footprint. Who’s ready for more?
