Ira Glass

You know him as Ira Glass, but call him DJ Life for this gig. In “Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass,” he’ll create a “This American Life” show by mixing live onstage stories with pre-taped quotes and music. Maybe he’ll even wear outsized headphones and make that wikki-wah! sound. “Reinventing Radio: An Evening with Ira Glass” is 7:30 p.m. April 27 at The Smith Center. Tickets $26-$99. Info: the smithcenter.com

Exquisite Corpse

“Exquisite Corpse” is a collaborative art game that works like this: I draw a body part, fold the paper to hide it and let you draw the next body part. Repeat. The result is OMG THAT’S WEIRD. We should let real artists do this — which is what 20 of them are doing for the big “Exquisite Corpse” fundraiser exhibit for the Contemporary Arts Center. The fundraiser is 5-8 p.m. May 2 at the Contemporary Arts Center at the Arts Factory. The exhibit is on display through May 4. Info: http://www.lasvegascac.org

EstebanEsteban’s Spanish guitar music is a custom blend of new age, classic love songs and Latin pop. Throw in his fiery chops and you’ve got infectious music that’ll have you tearing your shirt off and dancing on the tables okay we didn’t mean literally hey now please get down or we’re calling security. Esteban performs “Music from the Heart” 7 p.m. April 18 and 19 at Cabaret Jazz in The Smith Center. Tickets $35-$59. Info: thesmithcenter.com

UNLVinoWith every sip you take at UNLVino, you’re raising scholarship money for UNLV students. So you’re not getting drunk, you’re administering college funds. ADMINISTER ON BRO!

UNLVino is 7 p.m. April 18-20 and 11 a.m.-2 p.m. April 21 at multiple locations, including The Venetian, The Mirage, Paris Las Vegas and the Lou Ruvo Center. Tickets $100-$350. Info: unlvino.com


Exquisite CorpseThe artists in the “Asleep in Vegas” show explore the theme through a variety of media, including a performance piece by Anne Mulford (pictured), who on April 4 will sleep in a cubicle and be stared at by curious onlookers. Hey, I did that at our last office party. I’m an artist!

“Asleep in Vegas” is on exhibit April 4-27 at RTZ Vegas in Art Square, 1017 S. First Street #195. Info: rtzvegas.com.
