Tiësto may have fully consummated his love affair with Las Vegas by naming his fifth studio album A Town Called Paradise, due out June 16. He’ll play Hakkasan four days later, which also happens to be the first night of Electric Daisy Carnival. Hmm.
Anyone who’s snuck a peek at Downtown Grand’s rooftop pool venue Picnic has probably thought: So when are the parties starting already? Sight & Sound, which will mix music with live art, debuts for Downtown denizens on May 3. You can get in free with an RSVP at the event’s Facebook page or by dropping the event name at the door.
Krave, currently holding court at TW Theater, has announced it will be closed this weekend for a minor updating of nightclub accoutrements. The Stripside gay party will reopen May 9. In other LGBT nightlife news, industry folk looking for new job opportunities should hit the noontime May 6 casting call for Victor Drai’s Liaison, projected to open inside Bally’s in June. Email resume and headshot to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Speaking of Drai, tickets to his Beachclub and Nightclub are already on sale at draisnightlife.com. The former looks to open on May 23 with 12th Planet, while DJs Irie and Dave Fogg will helm the indoor space’s opening the night before.
Finally, a beyond-packed XS crowd cheered on Deadmau5 as he went harder and deeper than local nightlifers may be accustomed to hearing him play on April 25, his first headlining Vegas gig since leaving Hakkasan/Wet Republic late last summer. Social network commentary suggested that the prog producer played a similar set at his Encore Beach Club appearance the next day. More, please.
