Bo Burnham at the Calvin • Sunday

Bo Burnham turned heads five years ago when, at 20 (he looked 16) he cracked up crowds of all ages with his self-deprecating, oft-dirty, and clever music-based comedy. On Sunday, he makes his way to his native Massachusetts for an 8 p.m. show at the Calvin. In his maturation, he’s gotten a little less dirty and a little more theatrical, but still hilarious. His shows integrate stand-up, music, and theatre and they don’t miss a beat — his quick wit will keep you guessing. Tickets, $38. — Amanda Drane


Act of Defiance and Allegaeon • Saturday

Act of Defiance featuring former members of Megadeth as well as Shadows Fall and Scar the Martyr, are in the midst of their first U.S. tour. Co-headling the tour with Colorado’s death metal Allegaeon, they will be playing a show this Saturday at the Waterfront Tavern. Opening up the set will be City of Homes and Western Massacre. A night of heavy metal at it’s finest will be in store. You can purchase tickets for this all-ages show for $15. 7 p.m., Waterfront Tavern, 920 Main St., Holyoke. — Jennifer Levesque


Springfield Falcons hockey • Sunday

You don’t have to know a lot about hockey to enjoy going to a Falcons game at the MassMutual Center in Springfield. Get a seat in front of the glass and watch giant men fly around on skates with the grace of ballerinas and the brute force of a herd of bulls in pursuit of a single puck — it’s thrilling! Plus there’s beer and popcorn and nachos and hotdogs and ice cream. This Sunday the Falcons are playing a home game against the Albany Devils at 5 p.m. Tickets are $10-$25— Kristin Palpini


Dana Osterling • Saturday

Soulful folk songstress Dana Osterling is back in the Valley for the month of November to record a new album, and on Nov. 14 she and her new band play The Rendezvous in Turners Falls, sharing the night with the Woman Songwriter Collective. The former Leverett resident, who now lives outside of Boston, has played locally as a member of the bands Tawdry, Zombie Nurse, and Here Come the Foxes. The show is at 9:30 p.m. Free admission. — Hunter Styles
