About The List
★ TheList.Vegas is a Las Vegas events calendar created by locals, curated for locals. With an emphasis on our vibrant local arts, culture, and entertainment scene, The List aims to be easy to read and simple to use. No infuriating pop-ups, no social media noise, no spammy algorithmic garbage listings all up in your face, just hella cool local culture.
★ The List aims to include everything from classical concerts to food festivals to punk shows to poetry readings. However, The List does not claim to be a comprehensive Las Vegas events calendar. Rather, The List generally highlights events by local creators who might not have the marketing budget of a corporate promoter or big-box venue. It presents a diverse sampling of happenings, genres, and venues in the hope that it’ll inspire you to explore and embrace your city.
🌶️ Ooh, this bullet point is spicy: The List also has an Instagram feed, which you are heartily encouraged to follow, but the animating spirit of TheList.Vegas does imply, and encourage, a principled suspicion of the unfortunate features of the modern megacorp internet and Big Social: attentional thirst traps, data harvesting, digital surveillance, ad blitz honeypots, behavioral engineering, and other sadface praxis. As an independent website, TheList.Vegas relies on your support. For as little as $5 a month, you’ll support this indie cultural resource and get a few extra perks in your weekly 6 Picks newsletter, including bonus event alerts and the chaotically discursive but always interesting column, ★THE ITINERATOR★.
★ Listings are filtered, curated, gently bathed, swaddled, and then published according to a mysterious and baroquely intuitive editorial philosophy. Listings are free, but submission does not guarantee inclusion; sponsored listings and display advertising are also available. Listing blurbs are based on information provided by event organizers, and are edited for length and clarity. Every effort is made to ensure that event information is accurate and current. The List.Vegas is a business licensed in the City of Las Vegas, license #G70-05114.
★ TheList.Vegas operates out of Downtown Las Vegas and is published by Andrew Kiraly, a native Las Vegan (eastsiiiide!) and longtime Southern Nevada journalist.
