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.​


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.


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.


House of Cards Season 3 Hoard snacks and draw the curtains. ​The Netflix original political thriller returns Friday, ​making ​13 episodes available for rapacious consumption. Murderous politician Frank Underwood is finally president—is his revenge plan complete? ​February 27, Netflix.​

The Vagina Monologues Based on hundreds of interviews, Eve Ensler’s 1996 work started an important conversation about violence against women. Still a significant dialogue today, it comes to UNLV Saturday night (thanks to the Jean Nidetch Women’s Center) with proceeds benefiting CARE Advocates’ Survivor Emergency Fund. February 28, 8 p.m., $10, Artemus W. Ham Concert Hall.
