Cultural highlights this month
02 Alisha Kerlin
Clark County Government Center
Roadrunners: zippy, darty, a blur of motion! What if, artist Alisha Kerlin wondered after seeing a roadrunner doorstop at a swap meet, you turned them into heavy, immobile sculptures with overtones of Italian futurism? That’ll put some meep-meep in the Rotunda Gallery! Roadrunners that Won’t Run Far shows through July 25 in the Clark County Government Center, 500 S. Grand Central Parkway. Reception 6p, June 5
21 Gregg Allman
The Pearl at the Palms
The South will tour again. 8p, $53-$95, palms.com
20 The Amazing Las Vegas Comic Con
Pop culture is building irrevocably toward peak nerd, a year hence, with the release of Avengers 2. Events like this — mingling comics creators with comics fans — help make Vegas a cool base camp along the way. Just ask Deadpool creator Rob Liefeld, Infinity Gauntlet artist George Perez and Walking Dead actor Michael Cudlitz, among the announced guests. Through June 22, $25-$60, amazinglasvegascomiccon.com
13 Chelsea Handler
The Cosmopolitan Las Vegas
Sure, she has mad skillz on the teevee, with her successful E! shows Chelsea Lately and After Lately, and she can occupy the stage as a stand-up — but we love her for the comic sprezzatura of her classic book title, Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea. In other words, she’s a very funny human. 8p, $85 and up, thecosmopolitanlasvegas.com
28 Izel Ballet Folkorico
Winchester Cultural Center
No, it’s not Cinco de Mayo or Mexican Independence Day. But do you really need a heavily marketed cultural excuse to check out the lively, colorful dancing of Mexico? No, you do not. Here’s your chance to engage in some trans-border cultural understanding. 6:30p, $10-$12, 702-455-7340
