  • ¡Americanx! at UNLV's Donna Beam Gallery

  • The Rabbit Hole: Celebrating Women Worldwide at Velveteen Rabbit

    There’s no question that the music industry, especially DJing and music production, is male-dominated. But if you’ve found yourself wondering why more women aren’t trying to break into the industry, you simply aren’t looking hard enough. Local underground electronic collective the Rabbit Hole returns with its annual party celebrating female musicians, producers and DJs, stacking its lineup with some of the best creatives in Vegas and elsewhere. On the heels of her new album, Death Valley, Edrina Martinez, better known as Astronautica, brings her experimental indie and hip-hop beats to the fore (give ethereal track “Reasons” a spin for a sampling of her work), and Vegas-based DJs Crykit, Olan, Monro, Lo Dino, Duwop and Afrodyte will take turns on the decks throughout the evening. If a night of women supporting women isn’t reason enough to go, you’ll also be supporting an important cause, with half the proceeds going to Planned Parenthood. September 29, 10 p.m., $10, therabbitholelv.com. –Leslie Ventura

  • Grapes & Hops Festival at Springs Preserve

    Celebrate spring outdoors while sampling beer and wine, plus food from Tao Asian Bistro, El Segundo Sol and other local eateries. Cameron Calloway performs, and a portion of the proceeds goes to cancer nonprofit Par for the Cure. September 29, 5 p.m., $55. –Spencer Patterson
