HEAR

Flight Facilities Electronic music rules the Strip ... as long as a DJ is playing it. Thankfully, Brooklyn Bowl carries the torch for live electronic music with its latest beat-friendly booking: Aussie indie groove duo Flight Facilities, whose “Crave You” is on the ascent thanks to its remix from Adventure Club (also in town Saturday night, at Drai’s). With Touch Sensitive. February 28, 9 p.m., $22.​

CHEER

San Diego State at UNLV Hoping for a happy ending to the Runnin’ Rebels’ rocky season? A win over the conference-leading Aztecs would help, with the Mountain West tournament still to come. March 4, 8 p.m., $20-$110, Thomas & Mack Center.

EAT

Low Country Bourbon Dinner Start with glazed doughnut waffles, fried chicken “oysters” and she-crab soup shots before the main attraction: honey-roasted pork paired with the St. Helena Crush, concocted with Tatoosh bourbon, Southern Comfort and pineapple. This one-night-only meal is comfort food at its finest. March 4, 6:30 p.m., $39. Made L.V., reservations required, 702-722-2000.
