e v e r y t h i n g y o u a b s o l u t e ly, p o s i t i v e ly m u s t g e t o u t a n d d o t h i s w e e k WELLRED COMEDY FUNDRAISER AT THE SPACE Happen to see singer- songwriter Jason Isbell at House of Blues back in March? If you arrived early, you might've also caught his unconventional opener: self-described "liberal redneck" Trae Crowder. Half Jeff Fox- worthy, half Bill Maher, the Tennessee-born stand-up likes to poke fun at the rural South and its conservative politics. Sample joke: "The way I feel about the Confeder- ate Flag is the way I look at the original Power Rangers TV show: I liked it when I was a kid, but I didn't know any better." You'll get another shot to catch Crowder during this comedy fundraiser for local political ac- tion group Battle Born Progress. This time he's bringing fellow Southern heretics Corey Ryan For- rester and Drew Morgan— which should mean triple the Trump digs. $35-$55. –Mike Prevatt THE WEEKLY'S BEST OF VEGAS PARTY AT XS Tooting our own horn? Yep, but mostly we're touting our 2017 honorees, and inviting you to celebrate them with us. On the pages that follow, you'll read all about the restaurants, bars, bands and artists our staff and our readers are especially excited about right now, and everyone can rub shoulders with those giants—and yes, consume some complimentary beverages served up for the occasion—inside this year's Best Megaclub winner: XS at Encore Resort. Save yourself a spot by RSVPing at See you Saturday night! –Spencer Patterson CHIC AT THE PEARL Opening for Duran Duran last year, Nile Rodgers' disco/soul group coaxed a Mandalay Bay Events Center crowd from its seats with dare-not- to-dance hits like "Good Times" and "Le Freak." The en- ergy should be even higher this time, with Chic's own fans populating the Palms' concert hall. $41-$96. –Spencer Patterson TASTE OF SPAIN DINNER AT ANDIRON STEAK & SEA The Downtown Sum- merlin hot spot lets executive chef Robert Camacho go tapas- crazy for this one-night special menu event. Work your way through pan con tomate with Serrano ham, gazpacho and pulpo gallego, but remember to save room for the seafood paella and churros con choco- late. $59, andironsteak. com. –Brock Radke Trust Us Trust Us Trust Us 13 thursday, 8 p.m. 16 sunday, 8 p.m. 18 tuesday, 6:30 p.m. 15 saturday, 8 p.m. 06 0 7 . 1 3 . 1 7 l a s v e g a s w e e k ly
