The main draw in Las Vegas this weekend is the return of Neon Reverb four-day, all inclusive music festival. That event will be taking over six venues Downtown, and although each event is ticketed separately, a wristband for $50 will allow festival-goers access into all the venues. For those that want to stay on the strip, or hit up different kinds of music and comedic entities, there are several other options each weekend night.
