Parties set for Punk Rock Bowling
Grab your hair dye and spike those mohawks. Punk Rock Bowling returns to downtown this weekend with three days and nights worth of shows at the Downtown Las Vegas Events Center. Gold Spike, 217 N. Las Vegas Blvd., will get in on the action by hosting PRB Backyard Parties from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. There’s no charge for those or for the overall atmosphere in the ’hood, but you’ll need a ticket to see the bands, which include Rise Against, NOFX, At The Drive In and Suicidal Tendencies. punkrockbowling.com
Burlesque event at Artifice Bar

Book clubs pick dates, novels
“Mystery and Suspense” is this month’s theme at the Genre Book Club, which meets from 6-7:30 Tuesday at The Writer’s Block, 1020 Fremont St. The club will discuss “Under The Harrow,” the debut thriller by Flynn Berry. The discussion will be accompanied by light refreshments, and attendees are expected to have read the book. And since we realize it might take you more than a few days to read an entire novel, here’s fair warning for the store’s next book club meeting: The Bourbon Book Club will meet June 7 to discuss “Kafka on the Shore” by Haruki Murakami.
