CALL IT A HIPHOPOPOTAMUS
Art collective ISI Group takes over Brooklyn Bowl once again, this time for a Call of the Wild-themed show and auction on August 27. In addition, don’t miss performances from some of local hip-hop’s finest: RNR and Marion Write, plus an open-style b-boy cypher. Maybe you’ve got your own skills to show? Vegas.BrooklynBowl.com.
IT’S A SHARK THING
Syfy drew 3.9 million viewers for the July 30 premiere of Sharknado 2: The Second One. Whether you weren’t among them or you just want to see the flick in theaters, August 21 is your best viewing opportunity. Cinemas across the country (including several local outposts) will show the sequel on a big screen for one night only. Fandango.com.
GOOD DEAL, GOOD CAUSE
Consider one ticket to AFAN’s 28th annual Black & White Party on August 23 to be the equivalent of several tickets to various Strip shows. The entertainment lineup includes performances from Jabbawockeez, Jubilee! and Absinthe star Melody Sweets. Treating yourself to a night out is even sweeter knowing proceeds support Southern Nevadans living with AIDS. AFANLV.org.
FOREVERMORE, FOR NOW
Given the recent announcement that Trifecta Gallery will close in January, we recommend you take every opportunity to visit the Arts District staple until then. Through August 29, see Su Limbert’s Forevermore, which was crafted specifically for the space. The paintings and sculptures employ a folk-art aesthetic to explore life’s cyclical nature.
