MUSIC: DIONNE WARWICK One-of-a-kind vocalist Dionne Warwick is in that small group of legendary Las Vegas headliners who have played pretty much everywhere along the Strip. The recent Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award honoree started out at the Sands in 1969 and last played Cleopatra’s Barge at Caesars Palace, surely one of the smallest Vegas venues in which she has ever performed. Now, she’s getting even closer to her audience with a new residency at the intimate Stirling Club at the tony Turnberry Place condo tower just off the Strip, an ordinarily private club that has long hosted interesting entertainment. Warwick’s show raises the stakes. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for cocktails and appetizers, and the lounge will stay open late after the show, adding an extra touch of old-school elegance to a night of iconic music. Thursday, Saturday & Sunday, 8 p.m., $89-$199, eventbrite.com. –Brock Radke

ARTS: THE MOJAVE PROJECT A month after debuting this “experimental transmedia” exhibit, UNLV’s Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art hosts a reception with its curator, Kim Stringfellow. The Joshua Tree, California-based artist combines multimedia and community engagement to offer perspectives as heterogeneous as the iconic rock formations that surround us. The Mojave Project draws from documentation collected through field dispatches—including 25 audio interviews with Mojave residents available to stream throughout the exhibit—and features artifacts such as books, archival documents and mineral specimens, all sourced from, or associated with, our desert home. More than 80 photographs serve to illustrate the exhibit’s themes, which include Desert as Wasteland, Geological Time vs. Human Time, and Space and Perception. Exhibitgoers can immerse themselves in a variety of forms and topics all related to the contemporary Mojave Desert. The reception and remarks begin at 6:30 p.m., and the show runs through July 23. 5 p.m., free, Marjorie Barrick Museum of Art,

FOOD & DRINK: BOULDER CITY BEERFEST Fun fact about Las Vegas’ neighboring town to the southeast: Boulder City was founded during Prohibition, and sales of alcohol weren’t allowed there until 1969. According to local accounts, dam workers and anyone craving an after-work cold one had to leave Boulder City limits for Railroad Pass to get it. Today, you can head to Wilbur Square, in the heart of Boulder City’s historic district, for the eighth-annual Boulder City Beerfest. Ten food trucks, “beer-centric” vendors and live entertainment will be free to access; those ready to partake in tastings from 36 local breweries can purchase a wristband and receive a locally made souvenir glass. VIP early entry, 1 p.m., general admission 3 p.m., $45-$60, Wilbur Square, bouldercitybeerfestival.com. –Shannon Miller

MUSIC: BARONESS The last time Georgia metal outfit Baroness played Las Vegas, it happened in the 4,500-capacity Joint (now the Theater at Virgin) as part of Psycho Las Vegas’ 2016 edition. This time, the band will set up inside the Space, a venue with a capacity under 500. That’s by design. Baroness’ “Intimate Evening” tour will take it to some downright tiny rooms, by modern Baroness standards. “We’re really thrilled to have the opportunity to play up close and personal in some venues we haven’t typically played in recent years,” frontman John Baizley said in a statement when the dates were announced. To mark the occasion, ticket purchasers can vote for songs they hope to catch in the night’s setlist, drawn from the band’s five, color-titled albums: Red (2007), Blue (2009) Yellow & Green (2012), Purple (2015) and Gold & Grey (2019). 8 p.m., $60-$75, the Space, thespacelv.com. –Spencer Patterson
