GO

Peepshow With the show closing September 1, now’s your last chance to see Coco Austin don Bo Peep’s blue corset alongside the pole-dancing, skin-baring, splish-splashing cast of this modern burlesque spectacle. When that curtain closes for the last time we’ll all feel a little less sexy. Thursday, Friday, Sunday-Tuesday, 9:30 p.m.; Saturday, 8 & 10:30 p.m., $37-$127, Planet Hollywood.

Battle of the Year Some call it the Olympics of break dancing, and the USA Crew Eliminations leading up to the world final will showcase local heavies like Full Force and Knucklehead Zoo, plus a special performance by UNLV’s Rebel Girls. August 24, 1-9 p.m., $18, Hard Rock Cafe (Strip).

HEAR

Courtney Love She’s apparently not the hot mess you’re hoping her to be, per reports from her previous dates. But she’s still Courtney Love, and this is still Las Vegas, so who knows what that combination will produce. What you can expect: a night full of Hole hits with a handful of solo cuts and covers. August 22, 9:30 p.m., August 23, 10:30 p.m., $35-$47, Vinyl.

Steely Dan It’s been four decades since Can’t Buy a Thrill first hit record stands. Now, catch the jazz-rockers reel in all those years during their Mood Swings: 8 Miles to Pancake Day Vegas pit stop. August 23, 8 p.m., $80-$190, the Pearl.

EAT

Tenaya Creek Beer Dinner Hubert Keller’s Fleur restaurant plays host to the local brewer with a five-course beer pairing dinner, including a roasted apricot tart with crispy duck confit and Hop Ride IPA and roasted venison with buttered plantains and Hauling Oats Oatmeal Stout. Mandalay Bay director of food and beverage (and Nevada’s first female cicerone) Sarah Johnson will team up with the Tenaya Creek guys to walk diners through each flavor. August 29, 7 p.m., $75.

Commenting Policy

  • If the venue continues to book rising stars, it might just be the best place to see them before they get big.

  • There were loud sing-alongs and vigorous mosh pits throughout the night, but it was all still fueled by nostalgia.

  • The band, which turns Velvet Underground songs into pizza anthems, hits LVCS on November 16.
