Cornish Pasty Co. The Dark Arts Market
Like we even need to ask if you’re in the market for taxidermy, gothic art, coffin purses, Ouija boards, tarot readings and “wet specimens.” Clear space in your Dragula and bring a body-sized bag. April 13, 8 p.m., free. –Geoff Carter
Keep Memory Alive Center UNLVino

Art Square March for Science
It’s been a tough year for folks who dig science. EPA head Scott Pruitt is cagey on climate change. Teachers are striking due to dismal education funding. And the iPhone X has been a disappointment.
But science marches on. So says the slogan for the second annual March for Science, which is happening in cities all over the world. Last year’s marches drew more than 1 million people globally. This year’s goal is to raise advocacy for science, STEM education and “evidence-based policy making.” Per its Action Network webpage: “In the wake of repeals and rollbacks of dozens of environmental policies and the disparity of facts in government, standing up for science is more important than ever.”
Although it’s called a “march,” the Las Vegas event will be a rally with scientist speakers, music by Veserium and live art by Recycled Propaganda. Topics will include space exploration, health, education and the environment. The event is free, but the group is accepting monetary donations and gently used clothing and household items. April 14, 10 a.m. –C. Moon Reed

Marjorie Barrick Museum Catherine Borg: One Night Only
