The Get Back’s 11th Anniversary at Beauty Bar The people at First Friday are now publicly distancing their culture fest from the revelry that takes place later on Fremont East, but it’s nearly impossible to separate the art walk from the Get Back. It’s no longer an official First Friday afterparty, but frankly, the first Friday of the month wouldn’t feel the same without it. October 4, doors at 10 p.m., $5 men after 11 p.m., women free.
Arty at Marquee The 24-year-old Russian beatmaster has ascended the electronic dance music ranks quickly, thanks to some enviable affiliations with Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats label and Armin van Buuren’s A State of Trance radio show/DJ series. Ultimately, though, it’s Arty’s euphoric Euro-house anthems, like “Together We Are” and “Must Be the Love,” that have most fueled his ascent. October 4, doors at 9:30 p.m., $50 men, $20 women.
Las Vegas Oktoberfest at Neonopolis Prost! Celebrate the German tradition in style, with steins of Deutschland import Innstadt Edelsud or local brewery Ellis Island’s Oktoberfest brew (just two of the beers featured at the Downtown event). General admission scores you two fills, while VIP gains you unlimited beer access. Oktoberfest fare, a silent auction, wine tasting and a stein-holding contest complete the celebration, with all proceeds benefiting the American Parkinson Disease Association. October 5, 7 p.m. (6 p.m. for VIP), $35 advance ($17.50 locals), $100 VIP ($50 locals), $49 at the door.
Satoshi Tomiie at Artisan Afterhours The pre-sunrise favorite’s experiment with unlikely Vegas headliners continues with ... a former regular Vegas headliner. It’s been awhile since Japan-to-New York City’s Satoshi Tomiie has dished us his subterranean sounds. Let’s welcome him back during October’s installment of Artisan’s new Violent Reign party. October 5, 2 a.m., $10, locals and women free.
Raven and Jujubee at Piranha The Season 2 queens from RuPaul’s Drag Race returned to Logo’s drag workroom just last year to compete in the reality series’ All Stars edition. They perform at the Fruit Loop nightclub Saturday, complementing third-season queen (and Piranha regular) India Ferrah in her weekly Goddess drag show. Don’t forget those dancing shoes—you betta werk! October 5, doors at 10 p.m., $20, locals free.
Depeche Mode Afterparty at Beauty Bar Who can afford to pay StubHub prices for tickets to Depeche Mode’s sold-out Pearl show? Save a paycheck and opt for Downtown’s (black) celebration of the veteran synth-pop trio, whose classics and remixes will be spun by superfan DJs. We can’t promise they’ll forego the new crap, but we bet they’ll honor most of your dream D-Mode setlist. October 6, doors at 10 p.m., free.
Drink Bare Dry at Bare Fall is closing in on Las Vegas—which means the dayclub bars will soon be as dry as their pools. Itching for one last fix of daytime debauchery? Head to the Mirage party pool this Monday, where locals with I.D. score free entry and a complimentary open bar all day long—or until the booze runs out! October 7, doors at 11 a.m., $20 men, $10 women, locals free.
The Moonshiners at The View and Moon The top-of-the-Palms nightspots go speakeasy-style Tuesday night, with Pin Up star Claire Sinclair presiding over the Prohibition-themed party.
