JAILHOUSE ART

Decades ago, Angel Delgado was put in the slammer for performance art. Now the Cuban native and current Las Vegas local’s exhibit, Constancy, revisits his imprisonment with pieces made from soap blocks and scrap material. On July 17, he’ll wrap up its run at Amanda Harris Gallery with a video reel of his past work … the type of stuff he did time for. AmandaHarrisGallery.com.

BACK FOR MORE

After winning Best of Fringe at this year’s Las Vegas Fringe Festival, the comedy play Five Lesbians Eating a Quiche returns for encores at Las Vegas Little Theatre July 18-27. So, what’s it about? A 1956 quiche bakeoff where the women keep more than their recipes a secret. Well, they try to keep it a secret. LVLT.org.

GALS ’N’ GUNS

Absinthe siren Melody Sweets leads the Shoot ’Em Up! Bang! Bang! Wild Wild West Burlesque Show and music video premiere on July 22. With help from her co-stars, a champion trick roper, a married crossbow stunt team and burlesque babes, she’ll raise funds for AFAN and the Burlesque Hall of Fame. If you still need convincing: the Gazillionaire and Penny Pibbets will appear as Cowboy Summerlin Sam and “trusty steed,” Phallus. MelodySweets.com.

THE DARK KNIGHT’S DAY

Marking the 75th anniversary of his DC debut, stores nationwide celebrate July 23 with limited releases, giveaways and games. Score swag locally at the Barnes & Noble on 2191 N.
