Las Vegas Weekly’s Music Issue Showcase Ain’t no party like a Weekly party, ’cause a Weekly party don’t stop. And because we’ll have great local acts onstage—neo-soul singer Sabriel, poppy punkers Mercy Music (see: the cover of the mag you’re holding) and infrequent indie adventurers A Crowd of Small Adventures—along with LA’s The Moth & The Flame (see: sidebar), presented by the soon-to-reopen Bunkhouse; über-danceable DJ duo Totescity and, yes, free booze (while supplies last). It’s free and it happens inside the super-comfy confines of the Brooklyn Bowl on the Linq, so get your RSVP on at lasvegasweekly.com/musicissue and celebrate with us! June 6, 7-11 p.m.
50 Shades! The Musical What’s more awkward than overhearing a conversation about Fifty Shades of Grey? Sitting in on a ladies-only book club that narrates the entire series. Watch the bubbly cast chronicle Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele’s kinky sexcapades in this explicit parody at the Smith Center. June 7, 7:30 p.m., $24-$79.
Vegas Fringe Festival If “Oregon Trail: The Play” or “5 Lesbians Eating a Quiche” intrigue you, imagine cramming 15 mini-productions (all under an hour) into your culture hole. And if you can’t make the first installment, hit up Las Vegas Little Theatre next weekend for the second act. June 6-8, 12-15; times vary; $10-$12.

June 7, 8 p.m., $10, Henderson Pavilion.
Doom in June Heavy metal’s slow and sludgy strain—the one descended from Black Sabbath—invades the Cheyenne Saloon for “Vol. 4” of the bone-rattling annual celebration, featuring bands with unforgettable names like Big Elf, Wounded Giant, Acid Witch and Trapped Within Burning Machinery. June 6, 5 p.m., $20; June 7, 1 p.m., $30; two-day pass $40.
