UNDTLV Paint It Red at Container Park Uniting midtown with Downtown, Ravealation is behind this all-ages Thursday night event geared toward UNLV students. Local hip-hop/EDM hybrid act Splitbreed headlines, with support from Manimals and Tevineleven. April 9, 6 p.m., free entry.

Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike at Hakkasan There are a few things you might not know about the Greek/Belgian EDM duo. One: They’re the No. 2 DJ act in the world, if you put any stock into DJ Mag’s yearly poll—which slots them above Calvin Harris, David Guetta and a slew of better-paid and more-famous DJs. Two: They’re brothers. Three: They’ve got an album in the works, due out later this year. Maybe they’ll give you a taste of it during their Hakkasan debut. April 9, doors at 10 p.m., $30+ men, $20+ women.

Star Studded at Share Lesbians don’t have many nightlife options in Las Vegas, but Share—usually known for its gay male clientele and underwear-clad go-go boys—is throwing down the welcome mat with a new industry night for girls who like girls. It sweetens the deal by offering a $10 liquor bust. April 9, doors at 10 p.m., free.

Throw-chela Spring Fling Cornhole Tournament at Made L.V. The Tivoli Village eatery brings back its now-annual bean-bag toss tournament Saturday afternoon, complete with tailgate-friendly drink specials like 2-for-$5 PBR tall-boy cans, $3 Fireball shots and $5 Deep Eddy Vodka-spiked lemonades. The double-elimination tourney also features Masters Tournament coverage and a live remote broadcast from 95.5 KWNR-FM. Start practicing that technique now! April 11, 10:30 a.m., $20 for tourney entry ($25 day of).

Kristian Nairn DJ set at Ghostbar Hodor, a DJ? Pretty ridiculous, right? No more so than Chumlee getting behind the DJ booth a few weeks back—or Game of Thrones in general, frankly. But the towering actor has been DJing enough to tour—one called the Rave of Thrones, which includes this Vegas date—and according to his Soundcloud page, dude forgoes the usual big-room dance pop for house music. To which Ghostbar will hopefully be receptive. April 11, doors at 8 p.m., $25+ men, $20+ women.

Guinness World Record Attempt: Largest Drag Performance at Hard Rock Cafe They betta werk! Local drag queen Kitty Litter and a gaggle of glamazons will attempt the Guinness World Record for Largest Drag Queen Stage Show Sunday morning at our original Hard Rock Cafe (4475 Paradise Road) during its monthly drag queen brunch. The ladies have to beat the 55 female impersonators from GSWS Columbus, who claimed the title at the Ohio city’s Axis Nightclub in July 2014. Bonus: Dressing in drag scores you a free mimosa. April 12, 11 a.m., free entry.

EPYK Charity Kickball BBQ at Fox Ridge Park Nightlife entertainment collective EPYK is staging its yearly, dance-friendly kickball tournament and barbecue with charity in mind. Those ponying up for raffle tickets—where one can win a three-day EDC ticket—or signing up to join EPYK’s team for the April 19 AIDS Walk will party proudly knowing proceeds will benefit Aid for AIDS of Nevada. There will also be a potluck and, of course, live DJ talent; for more info, visit EPYK’s Facebook page. April 12, 11 a.m.-8 p.m., free; donations & potluck contribution encouraged.

She stops by the Cosmo club for an after-concert performance during the space’s Marquee Mondays promo, which also features resident DJ Jason Lema. April 13, doors at 10 p.m., $30+ men, $20+ women.
