Asymmetry at Harvard Book Store

Despite its title, Lisa Halliday’s Asymmetry equalizes two seemingly unrelated stories through a third that explains the association. Her debut novel, divided into three distinct parts, starts with the story of a young aspiring writer’s affair with a literary icon. The action then moves to a Muslim man detained at Heathrow Airport while en route to Iraq, and eventually these stories overlap in the novel’s final act. While Halliday toys with the constructs of gender, age and ethnicity, she lures the reader into questioning other inequalities in our society as well. / Brynne Crawley

Haim at Agganis Arena

  • $25-$51

With the funky guitar twangs and staccato lyrics of their 2013 smash hit “The Wire,” childhood rock-band dreams became vivid reality for Haim, the indie-rock trio formed by sisters Este, Danielle and Alana Haim of California. After raking in accolades for their debut studio album Days Are Gone, the sisters are back with their follow-up, Something to Tell You. Released in July 2017, the album glides from pop-rock to disco-tinged tunes and back again, like the lead single “Want You Back,” which mixes slick production with confessional vibes. In January they announced their Sister Sister Sister tour, which will whisk the musical siblings across the UK and North America, including a stop in Boston. / Nathan Tavares

Dita Von Teese at House of Blues

  • $40-$125

Rhinestone-glittering icon Dita Von Teese is once again serving her signature haute burlesque in a gigantic martini glass. No stranger to the dazzle of the limelight, the multi-hyphenate has appeared on America’s Next Top Model, acted as a MAC Viva Glam spokesperson, once performed in nothing but five million dollars’ worth of diamonds and released her debut studio album in February. On her Copper Coupe tour, the 45-year-old vaudeville heroine brings refreshed routines and over-the-top Swarovski-candied costumes while shaking her tassels alongside guest performers such as pin-up glamour girl Gia Genevieve and the male dancers of her “Vontourage.” Shimmy down to the House of Blues when Dita brings the art of the Teese to town on May 6. / Brynne Crawley
