3 bands, 3 bucks, 1 cause


Pete Makowski is gone but not forgotten. The Las Vegas cyclist and all-around athlete lost his life in 2013 when he was hit by a truck while riding, but his spirit lives on in the form of organized rides and fundraisers to promote bike safety. On First Friday, Makowski’s friends and fellow cyclists will host a benefit show at the Bunkhouse featuring Rusty Maples, Mercy Music and Illicitor.

In Nevada it’s the law for drivers to pass riders with a buffer zone of at least three feet, but 3 Feet for Pete asks cyclists to follow a few more rules: Know the law and obey it, be a defensive rider and seek safe routes with bike lanes or adequate shoulders. Admission, fittingly, is $3.

3 Feet for Pete Benefit Featuring Rusty Maples, Mercy Music & Illicitor. April 3, 8 p.m., $3. Bunkhouse, 702-854-1414.
