McTavish Weekend: Hit ‘The Wall,’ Swing with Weinberg and Wail in West Bottoms

Vintage rock idol Roger Waters re-erects his former band Pink Floyd’s magnum opus of personal alienation, “The Wall,” when the metaphorical mastermind leads the spectacle-laden “The Wall Live” at 8 p.m. Saturday at Sprint Center, 14th and Main. Tickets cost $55 to $199; go to sprintcenter.com. Drummer Max Weinberg lays down the chops he’s known for with Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band and (until last year) as bandleader for late-night TV icon Conan O’Brien, when Weinberg fronts his own 15-man big band in shows at 5:30 and 8 p.m. Sunday at Jardine’s, 45th and Main. Cover is $35 (reservations recommended); go to jardines4jazz.com. The Beast, The Edge of Hell, and Macabre Cinema are among the horror-happy host of commercial haunted houses celebrating Halloween in the West Bottoms, only a werewolf’s howl from Kemper Arena. Doors creak open at 6:30 nightly. Admission is $23 to $37; go to kcbeast.com. For more diversionary tactics, check out the McTavish Weekend To-Do List each and every ever-lovin’ week on “Up to Date” with Steve Kraske on KCUR-FM (89.3). I pick ’em, you sick ’em.
