GO

R-16 B-Boy Masters Championships North American dance crews—including local favorites Knucklehead Zoo, Battle Born and Full Force—compete to represent at July’s international tournament in Korea. Plus a one-on-one, open-styles battle. Who will earn the trip, and the respect? May 19, 2-9 p.m., $22, Hard Rock Cafe (Strip).

Helldorado Days The centerpiece of the annual four-day Las Vegas celebration is Saturday’s Downtown parade (from 5 to 8 p.m.), but don’t forget the rodeo, carnival or Whiskerino Contest, either. May 16-19, times, prices and locations at elkshelldorado.com.

Boulder City Block Party Last year’s street fair was so much fun, the fine folks at the Dillinger are throwing another—food, drinks and live music from local bands Same Sex Mary, Dusty Sunshine, Earth Rising and Junkyard Dogs, along with touring acts Leopold and His Fiction (Austin) and FaceMan (Denver). May 18, festival starts at noon, bands begin at 4 p.m., free, 1224 Arizona St.

Putting on a Show! This benefit for Nevada Conservatory Theatre features UNLV theater department alums and Strip pros performing an original musical revue by Christopher Lash. May 18, 2 p.m., $10-$20, Judy Bayley Theatre.

HEAR

Kendrick Lamar The red-hot rapper played the Strip last October, but that was before major-label debut Good Kid, M.A.A.D City blew up, so lots of folks surely missed it. Here’s your second chance. May 22, 8 p.m., $40, Cosmopolitan’s Boulevard Pool.

SEE

The Office finale After nine seasons, the NBC sitcom finally says goodbye with an hourlong retrospective, followed by a super-sized final episode. Will Jim and Pam live happily ever after? Will Steve Carell make a cameo appearance? It’s time to find out. May 16, 8 p.m., NBC.

EAT

Project Dinner Table The ongoing charitable communal meal event moves west to Tivoli Village this month, and chefs with upcoming restaurants there—Bradley Ogden and Sam Marvin—will serve up the goods. May 18, 6 p.m., $190.

  • 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.
