TONIGHT’S TIPS

The Las Vegas community takes part in “We Stand With Orlando,” a walk from the Mirage to the Cosmopolitan, starting at 7 p.m. in solidarity with the victims of the gay nightclub shootings in Florida.

Former “Rock of Ages” star Mark Shunock hosts his monthly “Mondays Dark” benefit of Strip show volunteers to raise funds, this month for Habitat for Humanity, at Vinyl in the Hard Rock Hotel.

Mark is expected to announce a move to a new off-Strip warehouse to be converted into a permanent charity showcase.

EDM hasn’t stopped even though the three-day 2016 Electric Daisy Carnival at Las Vegas Motor Speedway has wrapped up another year:

Calvin Harris is at Omnia in Caesars Palace.

Thomas Jack is at Marquee Dayclub in the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas before dusk falls on the longest day of the year.

Dash Berlin and Carnage team up at Marquee Nightclub.

Cyberkid spins at Bond in the Cosmopolitan.

Lil Jon is at Jewel in Aria.

Steve Aoki is at Wet Republic in MGM Grand.

Seattle grunge metal duo Big Business performs its “Battlefields” blast-out at Backstage Bar & Billiards downtown.

Want to see a great movie outdoor but not deal with the 120-degree blazing weather? Then wade in the waters of Boulevard Pool at the Cosmopolitan to watch “Ferris Bueller’s Day Off.”

And tickets go on sale for Monty Python’s dastardly duo John Cleese and Eric Idle with their “Together Again At Last” at theVenetian on Nov. 18 and 19.

TOMORROW’S TEASE

As we wait on pins and needles for NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman to officially confirm Wednesday that Las Vegas is getting an expansion team for the 2017-18 season, we’ll preview the 2016 NHL Awards with host Will Arnett and the band X Ambassadors. In its eighth year in Las Vegas, this is the first awards at the Joint in the Hard Rock Hotel.

Plus, improv king Patrick Bristow, director and MC of the new show “Puppet Up” with more than 70 of Jim Henson’s crazy characters, reveals plans for the new production.
