  • Concert: Justin Moore at Sunset Station Amphitheater

    The return of live entertainment to Station Casinos properties throughout the Valley is a significant occasion, and the first summer concert at Sunset Station’s outdoor amphitheater would be a big deal even if the headliner wasn’t country chart-topper Justin Moore, who just released sixth album Straight Outta the Country. Reminiscent of Alan Jackson and George Strait, his sound’s just right for this welcome back party. July 23, 8 p.m., $33-$75. –Brock Radke

  • Esports: Valorant Tournament at HyperX Esports Arena

    Gamers have an unquenchable thirst for competition. If we’re not driving our significant other off the road in Mario Kart, we’re spawn-trapping poor schmucks in Call of Duty. If you’re seeking a challenge that pays, Luxor’s esports venue is hosting a LAN tournament for competitive title Valorant, with a $500 prize pool. Players of all skill levels are welcome. Just bring your game face. July 25, 5-11 p.m., individual & team entry fees vary, register at hyperxesportsarenalasvegas.com. –Amber Sampson

  • Exhibit: Then & Now: The Neon Boneyard at Whitney Library

    Casinos might rise and implode, but neon signs are forever. In this exciting new exhibit, Las Vegas’ past and present converge through images of famous neon signs provided by the Neon Museum and the Las Vegas News Bureau. For example, a 1967 photo of the Hacienda resort shows the famous Horse and Rider sign in his original glory. That same eternally optimistic neon cowboy waves to tourists today from his perch in DTLV. Through August 24, Monday-Thursday, 10 a.m.-8 p.m.; Friday-Sunday, 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; free, 5175 E. Tropicana Ave. –C. Moon Reed

  • Comedy: Matt & Mattingly's Bucket Show at Majestic Repertory Theatre

    Taken individually, comics Matt Donnelly and Paul Mattingly are terrific. Donnelly, a Penn & Teller cohort, is a dab hand at putting on characters—his hillbilly mentalist is both rustic and mysterious—and Mattingly, a Second City performer, has a quick, unpredictable gift for improv that’s among the best we’ve seen. Their Bucket Show, performed entirely for donations, is a solid meeting of their sensibilities. It’s also funny as hell. July 26, 8 p.m., free (donations accepted). –Geoff Carter

  • Charity Softball: Battle for Vegas at Las Vegas Ballpark

    Las Vegas sports heroes past and present—including Baseball Hall of Famer Greg Maddux, Football Hall of Famers Marcus Allen and Tim Brown and current Vegas Golden Knights captain Mark Stone—will amass in Downtown Summerlin for a ticketed softball game benefiting Grant a Gift Autism Foundation Ackerman Center and Miracle League of Las Vegas. Among others scheduled to participate: VGK players Reilly Smith, Ryan Reaves, Brayden McNabb and Zach Whitecloud, former Golden Knights Erik Haula and Nate Schmidt and Raiders players Johnathan Abram, Maxx Crosby, Alec Ingold, Josh Jacobs, Henry Ruggs III and Darren Waller. Help top the $136,000 raised at the 2019 edition. July 24, 6:30 p.m., $40-$100. –Spencer Patterson
