Answers to Burning Questions
Scott Cohen wants to set your innermost dreams on fire … as part of a Burning Man-inspired art installation that’s being built in the empty lot across the street from Atomic Liquors (917 Fremont St.) and going up in flames on March 21. The creator of the Life Cube Project explains more at an artist’s talk on Feb. 13 at Amanda Harris Gallery.

Penny Pibbets’ Part-Time Gig
Yes, your favorite pixie from Absinthe has a new jam band. It’s called Koocheekoo and they’re playing with the All-Togethers at Velveteen Rabbit on Feb. 13. Go to there!

Lady Lovin’
It’s been more than a month since we said farewell to Warhol Out West, but finally, Bellagio’s Gallery of Fine Art is back with a new exhibition: Painting Women. The artistic achievement of the fairer sex is the focus of the 34 works, imported from the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and here Feb. 14-Oct. 23.

Kicks and Dizzles
Gear up for a sneaker swap of epic proportions. Already drawing thousands in San Francisco and New York, Dunkxchange’s Las Vegas debut on Feb. 16 at Hard Rock Live will include a performance from our city’s pre-eminent rapper, Dizzy Wright, plus giveaways, apparel and art.

Less is more, except when it comes to tenors. The charming and talented Ten Tenors harmonize contemporary hits and opera classics on Feb. 17 at The Smith Center. Select orchestra seats to maximize your ogling capabilities.
