  • Film: Hidden Cinema Rooftop Garden Debut

    Cult classics under the twinkling stars? Count us in. Hidden Cinema Rooftop Garden debuts Downtown on September 17 with a showing of Kingpin. (The coming weeks will include The Beach, Speed and uber-romantic date movie The Exorcist.) Rooftop seating holds up to 150 people, and the experience features a 30-foot-wide movie screen. Alcohol, snacks and three kinds of seating are purchasable, from cozy picnic blankets to full-on love-seat beanbags. All proceeds from Hidden Cinema also go toward helping the homeless population Downtown and certain showings even accept hygiene kit donations. September 17, 7 p.m., $12.50+, 321 S. Casino Center Blvd., hidden-cinema.com. –Amber Sampson

  • Soccer: Leagues Cup Final at Allegiant Stadium

    Just because the Raiders and Rebels have moved in for their first full football seasons with fans doesn’t mean other events won’t tumble into the stadium. After the inaugural Leagues Cup final in 2019 at Sam Boyd Stadium and last year’s forced break, this year’s interleague event between Major League Soccer and Liga MX features four top clubs—Tigres, Pumas, Santos and Léon. September 22, 7 p.m., $29-$69, leaguescup.com. –Brock Radke

  • Meet and Greet: Shavo Odadjian at Cultivate

    The System of a Down bassist will be on hand to chat with fans and debut products from his 22Red cannabis line, including greenhouse-grown Sunkissed flower and new concentrates. Also on tap: food trucks (burgers! ice cream!) and raffle drawings for cool prizes. September 18, 4-6 p.m., free entry, 3615 Spring Mountain Road.

  • Party: Major Lazer at XS

    It’s time once again to play How Long Will Summer Last in Las Vegas. The Autumnal Equinox is September 22, but three days earlier, Major Lazer will perform at the XS Nightswim party at Wynn, which could ostensibly extend the season; It’s kind of a Groundhog Day situation. As Lazerism dictates, the goal is to unite everyone through music and celebration, and we might need another month or so to knock that out. September 19, 10:30 p.m., $55-$85, 702-770-7300. –Brock Radke

  • Comedy: Nikki Glaser at The Mirage

    Hosting and producing the HBO Max summer smash FBoy Island gave comedian and podcaster Nikki Glaser the opportunity to expand in a new medium, but more importantly, it confirmed her love of reality TV dating shows. And now you can catch all her quips onstage as part of the Mirage’s Aces of Comedy series. “I’ve never been so trusted to be me and not have someone tell me what to do … so I felt really comfortable developing a new style of hosting a show in which I make fun of the genre and the tropes and how ridiculous it all is while also being very sincerely invested in the relationships that develop,” she tells the Weekly. “I love watching people fall in love, and I believe that it’s real. And I have a deep respect for the people willing to go on a show like that. There’s an inherent bravery in putting yourself out there that much.” September 17, 10 p.m., $30-$140, 702-791-7111. –Brock Radke

  • Fair: Oddities & Curiosities Expo at World Market Center

    You don’t have to wait until Halloween to enjoy the strange and unusual. Head to this uncanny expo, featuring indie artists and vendors who specialize in weird spooky items. In addition to clothing and jewelry, expect all sorts of macabre masterpieces and creepy crafts. Things get even odder from there, with funeral collectibles, preserved specimens and even skulls and bones. All are sustainably sourced. The truly daring can also sign up for the Jackalope Taxidermy Class ($210). September 18, 10 a.m.-6 p.m., $10-$15, 435 S. Grand Central Parkway, odditiesandcuriositiesexpo.com. –C. Moon Reed
