  • Summer Cheese Class at Cured & Whey

    The artisan deli and sandwich shop launches monthly lessons that will include tastings, interactive board buildings and enough cheese for two. 5:30 p.m., $55. –C. Moon Reed

  • Stonewall and the Mob at the Mob Museum

    Historian Alex Hortis discusses the mob’s involvement in controlling New York City gay bars during the 1960s and how the Stonewall Inn riots marked the beginning of the gay rights movement. $17-$27, 7 p.m. –Leslie Ventura

  • Closer at Clark County Library

    A Public Fit Theatre Company puts on a free staged reading of the Patrick Marber play made famous by the Julia Roberts/Jude Law film of the same name—a dark, sexy drama about a quartet of intertwined individuals. 7:30 p.m. –C. Moon Reed

  • Feed Me at House of Blues

    Jonathan Gooch, aka Feed Me, has an appetite for electronic music—so much so that he regularly feasts on drum ’n’ bass, dubstep and electro-house. The British DJ even landed a spot on deadmau5’s famed mau5trap label. Don’t miss him when he plays the Mandalay Bay venue with Teeth. $20, 7 p.m. –Leslie Ventura

  • Judas Priest at The Joint

    The appropriate adjective is “textbook,” as in “Judas Priest is textbook metal.” The band that gave us such classic headbangers as “Breaking the Law” and “You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’” ought to be taught to lesser musicians and engraved on gold records we send into deep space. With Uriah Heep. 8 p.m., $49-$77. –Geoff Carter

  • Latin Food & Wine Festival at Caesars Palace

    Celebrate Latin flavors and culture at this first-year festival headlined by Claudia Sandoval, Season 6 winner of MasterChef. Catch Latin bands, DJs, mariachis and folklorico dancers, along with cooking demonstrations from Sandoval and the property’s chefs. Admission includes all-you-can-eat Latin fare and beverage sampling. 5:30 p.m., $151. –Genevie Durano

  • Colors of the Rainbow at Clark County Library

    The Las Vegas Men’s Chorus celebrates Pride Month with uplifting Disney songs like “You’ve Got a Friend in Me” (Toy Story) and “Seize the Day” (Newsies). Free, 2 p.m. –C. Moon Reed

  • Three Shows on June 29

    It’s the classic good news/bad news scenario for local sonic explorers on June 29: three promising, small-venue shows that will require a single choice.

    LA quintet Mystic Braves’ sunny psych-pop traces back through Elephant 6 to the shag rug’d garages of the late ’60s. If you’re feelin’ extra groovy, head to Zia Record Exchange on Rainbow at 2 p.m. for a matinee performance. With The Acid Sisters, Sea Ghouls. 9 p.m., $12-$15, Bunkhouse Saloon.

    Fans of artful singer-songwriters like Ryley Walker and Tim Buckley should consider Eamon Fogarty, an East Coaster now based in Santa Barbara. His unhurried arrangements impressed on 2017 LP Progressive Bedroom, and judging from Grizzly Bear-ish preview track “Gods’ Guts,” July follow-up Blue Values will mark another step forward. With Bad Girls’ Smoking Lounge, The Quacks. 9 p.m., donations accepted, Starboard Tack.

    And it’s not every day you catch Coachella and FYF fest alums in one intimate, all-ages venue, but NoCal punk five-piece Ceremony—on Matador Records’ roster—and lively Philly power-pop foursome Sheer Mag are really sharing a bill Downtown. With Bugg, Spitting Image. 7 p.m., $15-$18, American Legion Post 8. –Spencer Patterson
