Las Vegas Sin opener The women’s football league swapped “Lingerie” for “Legends” in its name, but it should still pack plenty of skin and intense pigskin punch. Our hometown Sin take on the Green Bay Chill in their 2013 season opener. Hot beats cold every time. June 22, 8 p.m., $15-$82, Orleans Arena.

The Laramie Project A theater group interviewed the residents of a small Wyoming town weeks after the 1998 murder of gay university student Matthew Shepard. If you haven’t seen the resulting highly acclaimed play—or its HBO film adaptation—get to the Onyx this weekend. June 21-23, 28 & 29, times vary, $20.


Ozomatli Name a musical style and odds are LA’s veteran Latin-rock crew has stirred it into its sweet sonic cauldron. From hip-hop to jazz, salsa to reggae, Ozo has you covered. With Rhyme N Rhythm, June 21, 8 p.m., $25-$28, Hard Rock Cafe (Strip).


Before Midnight Richard Linklater’s follow-up to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset is just as emotionally affecting as its predecessors, with rich performances from Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. Now playing.


Lewis Black There’s very little in our current pop culture the apoplectic Black doesn’t eviscerate. Translation: You’ll never be more entertained while being offended. June 21 & 22, 10 p.m., $76-$98, Mirage.


Evil Dead blood drive The cast of Evil Dead the Musical celebrates one year of performances at the V Theater with a blood drive to benefit United Blood Services. Donors get a free comic book and free tickets to the show. June 21, 3-7 p.m., Maximum Comics, 520 S. Marks St.


Free smoothies Tropical Smoothie Café locations commemorate National Flip Flop Day by giving away a 24-ounce Jetty Punch smoothie to every customer wearing flip-flops between 2 and 7 p.m. You can also donate to Camp Sunshine while you sip your smoothie. June 21.
