Kansas State men’s basketball vs. Baylor

Saturday

Kansas State missed a golden opportunity to take control of the Big 12 when the Wildcats fell 83-62 to the struggling Kansas Jayhawks at Allen Fieldhouse. Despite the loss, however, K-State still finds itself ranked No. 13 and in the mix for the regular-season conference crown. To keep pace, they’ll likely need a victory over Baylor, which enters its 6 p.m. matchup with the Wildcats on Saturday having lost six of its past eight games to fall well out of Big 12 title contention. Senior guard Rodney McGruder leads Kansas State, whose hopes for a conference crown are still very much alive.

The Lyric Opera’s “Flying Dutchman”

Saturday through Sunday, March 10

For a change in the typical weekend scene of bars, restaurants and movies, consider checking out the Lyric Opera’s production of “The Flying Dutchman.” Richard Wagner’s tale of a damned sea captain who can only be saved by true love will be performed with huge sets, unique costumes and, of course, incredible voices. Tickets can be had for as little as $25, which is definitely cheaper than a night out drinking. “Dutchman” can be seen at the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts March 2, 6, 8 and 10. Tickets, which are available at kcopera.org, range from $25-165.

Modern Family

Friday

Four stars from ABC’s award-winning hit “Modern Family” are coming to Kansas City. Julie Bowen, Ty Burrell, Jesse Tyler Ferguson and Kansas City native Eric Stonestreet —Claire, Phil Dunphy, Mitchell and Cameron, respectively— are headlining the annual Kids Night Out benefit for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Kansas City. During the event, which includes cocktails, dinner and silent and live auctions, the actors will host an interactive performance with Club youth. The event is sold out, but donations to support the cause are still being accepted.

Menomena

Thursday

**

True indie rock journeymen, the members of Menomena have been crafting thoughtful music since 2000. The Portland-based band has incrementally grown a cult-like fan base. The absence of a single breakthrough moment suits the band’s understated sensibility. The 2012 release of “Moms,” the band’s fifth album, demonstrates that Menomena continues to gain artistic momentum. Accentuated by a saxophone and hyper-kinetic rhythms, many of its new songs are among Menomena’s best work. The fuzzy throwback pop of opening act Guards will delight fans of Best Coast and Sleigh Bells. Guards will also appear at Ink’s Middle of the Map festival in April.

Tickets to the 10 p.m. show are $13 in advance.

Maroon 5

Wednesday (February 27)

Sprint Center

Give Adam Levine credit. The frontman of Maroon 5 continues to resist the undoubtedly enormous temptation to initiate a solo career. Levine’s prominent television work as an actor in the series “American Horror Story,” host of “Saturday Night Live” and judge on the reality program “The Voice” have elevated him to the status of an elite celebrity. Yet Levine remains true to his relatively anonymous band mates. His admirable loyalty to Maroon 5 means that fans will hear undiluted versions of the band’s many dance-oriented hits at the Sprint Center on Wednesday. The rousing rock of Neon Trees and the fizzy pop of Owl City set the stage for Levine’s band.

Tickets to the 7:30 p.m. show range from $27.50 to $77.50.
