PlaytimeThe manicured lawns and vanilla surface of suburbia aren’t as tame as they may seem. Next To Normal, the Tony Award and 2010 Pulitzer Prize-winning rock musical, follows a mom with bipolar disorder and the effects it has on her family. The play tackles drug addiction, psychiatry, and suicide – with rock! Catch it at Durango Arts Center.

Details: August 30-31, Next to Normal, 7:30 p.m., $25, Durango Arts Center, 802 E 2nd Ave., durangoarts.org/next-to-normal

((((((VIBES))))))The club scene is miles away from Durango, but if you’re into that sort of thing, VibeSquaD’s show at Animas City Theater this weekend may be the closest you can get to it. The DJ, who hails from the Front Range, brings two other digital diddlers – Krunkle Tom and Astrologic – along to the Animas City stage.

Details: August 31, VibeSquaD, 9:45 p.m., $15, Animas City Theater, 128 E College Dr., animascitytheatre.com
