Here’s 21 things to do after dark in Vegas.

Thursday, March 10

CHEER: You don’t have to wait until the start of March Madness to get your college basketball fix. The Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament is at T-Mobile Arena through Saturday, with four games on the schedule for Thursday. 12 p.m., t-mobilearena.com

OR, you can head to Orleans Arena for the Western Athletic Conference tournament, with the women’s and men’s second round games scheduled for Thursday. 12 p.m., orleansarena.com OR, see the quarterfinals of the Mountain West basketball championship at UNLV’s Thomas and Mack Center. The championship game is set for Sunday. 12 p.m., unlvtickets.com

IN DA CLUB: It’s been a minute, but Fisher is back in Vegas, bringing that “Palm Beach Banga” to Hakkasan Nightclub at MGM Grand. 10:30 p.m., events.taogroup.com

Friday, March 11

ROCK ON: Hey, it’s 311 Day, and that can only mean one thing. The beloved rock band is back in Las Vegas for its annual bash, this time at Dolby Live inside Park MGM. Get all mixed up on Friday and come back for Saturday’s encore performance. 7 p.m., 311.com/311Day2022

While 311 has laid claim to Park Theater, John Mayer will be across the Strip, staging his Sob Rock Tour 2022 at MGM Grand Garden Arena. Bring tissues. 8 p.m., mgmgrand.mgmresorts.com

And insurance salesman/country singer Brad Paisley is bringing his “Acoustic Storyteller” show to Encore Theater for two nights at Wynn Las Vegas. 8 p.m., wynnlasvegas.com

LIFE FINDS A WAY: Did it blow your mind when you found out Jeff Goldblum was coming to Virgin Hotels Las Vegas on Friday night? Ours too, but it’s really happening, and he’s bringing the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra (and special guest Melody Sweets) with him for two shows at Virgin’s 24 Oxford. 7 p.m. & 9:30 p.m., virginhotelslv.com

IN DA CLUB: “The Boss” Rick Ross is richer than he’s ever been, but he’ll still make time for fans when he takes the stage at Drai’s Nightclub on the rooftop of The Cromwell. 10:30 p.m., draisgroup.com

Meanwhile, it’s Murda Beatz behind the decks at ARIA’s Jewel Nightclub. Now, does he bring beatz that murder you, or is he, like, murdering beatz in front of witnesses? I suppose the only way to know for sure is to be there. 10:30 p.m., events.taogroup.com

And Duke Dumont gets the headlining slot at Resorts World’s Zouk Nightclub, with Kid Funk also on the bill. 10:30 p.m., zoukgrouplv.com

Saturday, March 12

ROCK ON: You’ve got a rare opportunity to spend a night with a heavy metal legend when Iron Maiden singer Bruce Dickinson steps onto the House of Blues stage Saturday night. It’s not so much a concert as it is an intimate conversation with the artist, and will include a Q&A session, so start thinking of the things you’ve always wanted to know. 6:30 p.m., houseofblues.com

Off the Strip, Third Eye Blind is bringing its Summer Gods Tour to Virgin Hotels Las Vegas, with Taking Back Summer and Hockey Dad on hand to open the show. 7 p.m., axs.com

And M Resort is hosting the Ladies of Rock tribute show with artists performing the hits of Pat Benatar, Blondie, Heart, Cyndi Lauper and Joan Jett. 7 p.m., themresort.com

ICON ALERT: Aren’t we just the luckiest town on Earth? Smokey Robinson is back in Vegas and doing his thing at The Venetian Theatre. 8 p.m., venetianlasvegas.com

TAKE THE RED PILL: It will be quite an adventure at AREA15 on Saturday night, as the venue transforms into Wonderland for its anticipated We’re All Mad Here bash., featuring French DJ/producer CloZee, along with LUZCID, VEIL, LYNY, ATTLAS, Khiva, TALONS, and Not So Low. It’s much more than a concert, with interactive art installations, body painting, roaming performers, and special “Drink Me” potions. Sounds insane, can’t wait to see it. 9 p.m., area15.com

Or, if downtown is more to your liking on a Saturday night, head to Downtown Las Vegas Events Center for the debut of Holy Grail, a new Holy House production starring the likes of NOIZU, Habstrakt, Sage Armstrong, Wenzday, and Westend. 6 p.m., dlvec.com/event/holy-house

IN DA CLUB: Once you’ve recovered from your night with Rozay, head back up to Drai’s Nightclub for a little Gucci Mane action. 10:30 p.m., draisgroup.com

Up the street at Wynn Las Vegas, The Chainsmokers are back and taking over XS Nightclub. 10:30 p.m., wynnsocial.com Or, if the club is too stuffy for you, step outside and enjoy RL Grime at Wynn’s EBC at Night party. 10:30 p.m., wynnsocial.com

Sunday, March 13

IN DA CLUB: Sunday night Moonbeam parties are back at Zouk’s Ayu Dayclub, so get down there for Carl Cox and call in sick on Monday. 10:30 p.m., zoukgrouplv.com
