Michael Woods at Hakkasan The Brit EDM producer/DJ disappointed us with his predictable closing set during last month’s Sensation party. But he won back our hearts when, one week later, he told Justin Bieber to “f*ck off” after the singer crashed Woods’ set and demanded some hip-hop at a South Korean club. We thereby endorse his Friday performance. November 29, doors at 10 p.m., $20 men, $10 women.
Battle Track at Surrender Mainstream EDM DJ sets are dime a dozen on the Strip, so flip the switch this weekend at Surrender’s sound clash. DJ Hurricane will be laying down hip-hop beats on one stage, with DJ Mighty Mi supplying his house sounds on the other. Find out which genre reigns supreme Friday night. November 29, doors at 10:30 p.m., $32 men, $22 women.
3LAU at Marquee Hey neighbor, welcome home! Actually, Justin Blau isn’t our neighbor, but like the rest of us, he calls Clark County home. The 22-year-old curator of big-room house has been touring the States hard for the past few months, and his homecoming gig is a biggie: a Saturday headlining slot, only the second of his two-year Marquee residency. Download his third Dance Floor Filth mix for free at 3lau.com/music. November 30, doors at 10 p.m., $50 men, $20 women.
Say What?! White Trash Social at Beauty Bar The Indie Krush folks aren’t above trailer-park chic—or the suggestive trend of spraying alcohol all over partiers’ pretty little mugs. Chelsea La Vone will douse willing women and men with—what else?—PBR, while her fellow Suicide Sirens perform and model. Bands, DJs and cupcakes round out the offerings, but let’s face it: You’ll come for the beer facials. November 30, 9 p.m. $5 for the outdoor concert.
Tryptophan Twerk-Off at GBDC You’ll be shoveling mashed potatoes into your piehole at warp speed Thursday night—how about twerking those carby calories off this year? Avoid the dreaded holiday pudge by shaking your groove thang at the weekly top-of-the-Palms bash. And given the event title, we’re guessing GBDC-goers will be taking their creative costuming up a notch—you want to be there, we promise. November 30, 1 p.m., $20 men, free for local men before 2 p.m. and women.
Jenny McCarthy at Body English The one-time Playboy Playmate and co-host of The View flexes her funny bone at Vinyl this weekend, and justly presides over the cross-property club’s Saturday night show afterparty, with DJs Richard Beynon, Presto One and Ryne Green. November 30, doors at 10:30 p.m., $20 men, $10 women.
Piranha 54 at Piranha The club recently eliminated its cover—a major score for tapped-out party boys. If you’re in need of liquid motivation, as well, Piranha offers two free drinks on Saturday with the evening’s text (“GAY” to 83361) before midnight. That’ll make the midnight drag show with RuPaul’s Drag Race alum India Ferrah even more fabulous. November 30, doors at 10 p.m., free.
Richard Grey at Lavo Lavo has been sneaking legit house and non-EDM DJs into its All Night Tuesday parties. Well, we didn’t like Wednesday mornings anyway. But we do like Frenchman Richard Grey, former protégé of veteran producer/DJ Erick Morillo. Grey is used to playing the world’s biggest clubs, but he’s opting for something a little more intimate with his Lavo midweeker. December 3, doors at 11 p.m., $20 men, $10 women.
