Wed, Feb 22, 2012 (5:24 p.m.)
The Color Run It’s a paint fight disguised as a 5k race, and while it’s sold out for runners, you can still cheer on the crowds or volunteer to chuck some paint. Best of all, everyone goes home looking tie-dyed. February 25, 9 a.m., Las Vegas Blvd. at Bridger Ave.
Walk With the Heart of a Child This 3k walk inside the Fashion Show Mall raises funds for young sufferers of heart disease. It’s a feel-good way to spend a Saturday, plus you could win an Xbox. February 25, 7 a.m., $15-$25. Registration and details at chfn.org.
Bust-A-Nut Comedy Celebrate leap year with stand-up comedy—and a bit of burlesque, courtesy of Hollywood’s Jumbo’s Clown Room—at the ultra-adult Green Door. February 29, 10 p.m., $20.
Kid Meets Cougar The live return! New visuals unveiled! A new EP released! Plus, in case you need more incentive to catch the electro/indie duo, fellow locals Hungry Cloud, Twin Brother and Totescity are also on the bill. February 24, 7 p.m., $7-$10, Winchester Cultural Center.
Stephen Malkmus & the Jicks The ex-Pavement frontman has played Las Vegas exactly twice—both times with his old band (see: Huntridge ’94, Matadorfest ’10). This time he’s headed Downtown with the Jicks—different batch of tunes, same singer/guitarist/lyricist/indie-rock superhero. With Nurses, Halloween Town. February 25, 9 p.m., $20-$25, Beauty Bar.
Die Antwoord If you aren’t familiar with this South African hip-hop trio, you have some serious YouTubing to do. Start with their recent Letterman appearance. With DJ M!keattack, February 25, 9 p.m., $25.50-$28.50, House of Blues.
Tuck & Patti See the veteran jazz duo perform original works and interpretations of rock songs, from The Beatles to Hendrix. February 25, 2 p.m., $10-$15, Charleston Heights Arts Center.
The Voice Now’s the time to watch, while the judges are still sitting in those chairs that spin around when they like what they hear. ’Cause after the first round, The Voice turns into another American Idol rip-off. Mondays, 8 p.m., NBC.
Feng Shui for Success Find out what qi is and how to achieve more of it by using the centuries-old practice to decorate your surroundings. UNLV interior design prof Ken Kastle leads the seminar. February 23, 2 p.m., $10-$15, Nest Featherings, 6425 W. Sahara Ave.
