Last Cowboy Standing The PBR is back in Vegas, pitting the top 50 riders in the world against the rankest bulls in the business. With $100,000 on the line, every second counts. And the winner could help you predict who’ll be on top of the series at the World Finals this October. May 10, 8 p.m., May 11, 6 p.m., $24-$134, Mandalay Bay Events Center.

Henderson Art Festival Need a reason to attend? We’ll give you two: tons of activities for your kids and the chance to score your favorite gal a unique gift for Mother’s Day. May 11-12, 9 a.m.-4 p.m., free, Henderson Events Plaza.


Dusty Sunshine The Vegas faves are raising money for a trip to Toronto’s NXNW Music Festival, and helping out has rarely been this much fun. Among the planned festivities: a barbecue and bake sale, face painting, a silent auction, a kissing booth and live music from A Crowd of Small Adventures, Red Eye Radio and, of course, Dusty. May 11, 9 p.m., $6-$10, Beauty Bar.

Os Mutantes Who knew this Brazilian psych-rock crew—best known for its late-’60s/early-’70s recordings—was still active, let alone itching to hit the Vegas Strip? Strange but true. With Capsula, Same Sex Mary; May 11, 9 p.m., $22-$25, Hard Rock Cafe (Strip).


Louis C.K.: Oh My God We’re lucky there’s HBO GO, InDemand and all kinds of other ways to watch this hour of comedy forever. Watch and be hilariously educated on why divorce is great, dating is insane and putting your socks on sucks.

Holly Has a Baby Holly Madison may no longer be a regular reality-TV presence, but she’s back for this one-off special focusing on the preparation for and arrival of her daughter Rainbow Aurora, airing appropriately enough on Mother’s Day. May 12, 9 p.m., E!.


Vegas Uncork'd Quick, check the website. There are still tickets for many delicious events, including Thursday’s dinners at Central and Old Homestead, Friday’s margarita lunch at Border Grill and Grand Tasting at Caesars Palace, and Saturday’s afternoon beer garden at Mandalay Bay. May 9-12, prices vary, vegasuncorked.com.
