  • Carla Cooke at The Space

    The Space appears to have the lock on iconic artists’ offspring. Frank Sinatra’s granddaughter AJ Lambert is performing there monthly and now Carla Cooke, youngest daughter of soul legend Sam Cooke, makes a tour stop and her Vegas debut Thursday night.

    Like her dad, Carla set her musical foundations in the church choir and performed through high school. “Then I got married and had children,” she says. “After they all got grown, I prayed and asked for a chance to go out and do what I love to do.” Momentum started to build when she joined a “Daughters of Legends” tour with Rhonda Ross Kendrick (daughter of Diana Ross) and Robyn Charles (daughter of Ray Charles).

    “Every time I sing I get a lot of response from people telling me their stories from different songs of my father’s, and how much the music meant to them and how they felt about my father,” she says. “I’ve had many people come up to me crying when I sing those songs. Being on the road has been an amazing ride.” March 29, 8 p.m., $25, 702-903-1070. —Brock Radke

  • Dan Andriano and Dave Hause at Bunkhouse

    Alkaline Trio’s Matt Skiba might get most of the cred, but don’t overlook the punk staple’s co-vocalist/bassist Dan Andriano, who brings his solo tour to Vegas alongside Falcon bandmate and The Loved Ones lead singer Dave Hause. With Brendan Scholz. March 29, 8:30 p.m., $13, 702-982-1764.—Leslie Ventura

  • Mario Kart 64—DUI at Esports

    It’s a (virtual) go-kart race and beer-chugging contest in one, with a $100 grand prize. Get a ride to the event—actual DUIs are wack—and avoid that bastard blue shell at all costs. March 30, 6 p.m., $5 entry fee.—Geoff Carter

  • Stormy Daniels look-a-like contest at Centerfolds Cabaret

    You’ve seen her on TV, in your news feed and in your impeachment dreams. Now see her live (sort-of) and in multiplicity, as Centerfolds searches for a Stormy Daniels doppelgänger. The strip club is offering $5,000 in cash and prizes to whoever most closely approximates the porn star who could make 2018 great again. March 30, 9 p.m., $36, 702-734-7990.—Geoff Carter

  • David Guetta at XS and Encore Beach Club

    Just in time for his first big double-shift of the season, David Guetta has released his new collaboration with Sia, ’80s-ish pop ballad “Flames.” The French producer and Australian singer-songwriter have already teamed for three songs, most notably the epic 2011 smash “Titanium.” Maybe there’ll be a “Titanium Flames” mashup at one of Guetta’s weekend gigs? XS (March 30), $25-$45; EBC (March 31), $35-$55. Encore, 702-770-7300. —Brock Radke

  • Tiger vs. Flock at Flock & Fowl Downtown

    Local barbecue crew Black Tiger, led by bartender and pit master Gene Samuel, takes over the Flock and Fowl kitchen, bringing a taste of Kansas ’cue to Las Vegas. March 31, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. 150 Las Vegas Blvd., #100., 702-983-4880.

  • Tacos and Tamales Festival at Sunset Park

    The name says it all. There also will be beer and tequila ($25 for the booze garden), live music, Lucha Libre wrestling, rides and kids’ stuff. Are you already headed to Sunset Park? March 31, Noon-8 p.m., free. —Brock Radke

  • College of Fine Arts Hall of Fame at UNLV Student Union

    Local and national creatives are feted at this soiree, whose 15th year inductees include glass sculptor Dale Chihuly, First Lady of Motown Claudette Robinson, Smith Center president Myron Martin and more. Artist Tim Bavington will be awarded Alumnus of the Year. April 3, 5:30 p.m., $150-$200. —C. Moon Reed
