  • St. Valentine's Day at the Mob Museum

    Two unique experiences mark the seventh birthday of the Downtown museum and the 90th anniversary of the St. Valentine’s Day Massacre. Besides the bloodstained wall on permanent display, guest can see the machine guns used in the grisly Chicago shootout, also recounted through a photo-rich VR experience (which includes goggles). February 14, 9 a.m.-9 p.m., free with Nevada ID. –Mike Prevatt

  • Le Butcherettes at Bunkhouse Saloon

    With frontwoman Teri Gender Bender at the helm, this four-piece rock band from Guadalajara puts on one of live music’s most riveting live shows. And while Le Butcherettes’ recordings have never fully captured the raw power they possess in the flesh, February LP bi/MENTAL might get the closest. With Stars at Night, Same Sex Mary. February 14, 8 p.m., $15. –Leslie Ventura

  • The Vagina Monologues at The Space

    Since premiering in 1996, Eve Ensler’s powerful play featuring female monologues about sexuality has been an enduring must-see. This edition is a fundraiser for the Rape Crisis Center, Dress for Success and Yoga Haven. February 14-16, 8 p.m., $25-$50. –C. Moon Reed

  • Ice Cube at House of Blues

    Hi, Felicia! The star of Friday, Coors Light pitchman and, oh yeah, founding member of N.W.A. and composer of “It Was a Good Day” comes to Vegas in support of latest LP Everythang’s Corrupt. Get that man a Raiders cap. February 15, 8 p.m., $60-$210. –Geoff Carter

  • The String Cheese Incident at The Chelsea

    The bluegrass-y Colorado jam band kicks off its 25th-anniversary tour at the Cosmo, and if past Vegas incidents are any indication, serious fans will want to pounce on the $165 three-night floor pass. February 15-17, 8 p.m., $39-$79. –Spencer Patterson

  • The Chainsmokers at XS

    Once Valentine’s Day is over, The Chainsmokers’ new collaboration with 5 Seconds of Summer—a twinkly track about cheating called “Who Do You Love”—will feel a little more appropriate when you hear it at XS Saturday night. February 16, 10 p.m., $45-$65. –Brock Radke

  • Firebird at Smith Center's Reynolds Hall

    Nevada Ballet Theatre’s mid-winter repertory program heats up the stage with three Las Vegas premieres and one world premiere. Featuring a mix of styles from neoclassical to contemporary, this performance is the perfect buffet of short works for both dance newbies and longtime fans.

    Ukrainian choreographer Yuri Possokhov has created a crowdpleaser with his interpretation of the romantic Firebird fairytale, danced to the striking music of Igor Stravinsky. Late great ballet master George Balanchine choreographed Raymonda Variations for music by Russian composer Alexander Glazunov. Light Rain, the signature piece for Chicago’s Joffrey Ballet, is an invigorating pas de deux, featuring music by Douglas Adamz and Russ Gauthier. And celebrated contemporary choreographer Nicolo Fonte, the resident choreographer at Oregon Ballet Theatre, presents the world premiere of his new work, Crane/ing.

    These pieces aren’t the only beginnings. For the first time ever, Las Vegas Philharmonic artistic director Donato Cabrera will lead a full orchestra accompaniment for Nevada Ballet Theatre. Arrive 45 minutes early for a free pre-performance discussion that will offer insight into the ballets. February 16-17, Times vary, $29-$139. –C. Moon Reed

  • Bert Kreischer at Terry Fator Theater

    One of comedy’s most physical and charismatic figures—famous for ditching his clothes and riding bonkers thrill rides on Travel Channel’s Bert the Conqueror—makes his stand-up debut at the Mirage. February 17, 10 p.m., $33-$55. –Mike Prevatt
