Hot & Cool
Do you dig French gypsy jazz? You should, and you can catch some at the Historic Fifth Street School on March 29. During Cinema Vivant, the Hot Club of San Francisco performs alongside projections of silent cinema, juxtaposing lively tunes with scenes from the films The Cameraman’s Revenge from 1912 and The Mascot, made in 1934.

Men Without Shirts
When it comes to well-toned, scantily clad men, our cup runneth over this weekend. On March 29, host Jeff Timmons (formerly of the boy band 98 Degrees) indulges us with Men of the Strip, a live revue being filmed for a future reality show. HouseofBlues.com/LasVegas.
On March 31, the nightly dudeapalooza known as Men the Experience debuts inside Riviera’s Crazy Girls Theatre. RivieraHotel.com.
A Blessed West
March 30 is your last opportunity to see Sam Shepard’s True West, as performed by Las Vegas Little Theater. The written play was a Pulitzer Prize finalist for drama, and the LVLT’s production is eligible for a “Best of” Las Vegas Valley Theatre Award this summer. So if the tale of broken American dreams fails to leave you warm and fuzzy, you’ll at least know that the play brings something positive. LVLT.org.
Time to Riot
Local streetwear brand Civilian celebrates “10 Years of Mayhem” on March 30, and the anniversary edition of its monthly Sunday Riots event is an all-out blowout. Don’t miss giveaways, DJs and live performances from some of local hip-hop’s finest acts. The brand will also make limited-edition apparel available for purchase. Civilian-Clothing.com.
