NIGHT JAMS Flamingo’s Go Pool isn’t afraid to do something different from the dayclub herd, and that’s where this Sunday-night concert series comes in. Everclear performs July 16, and fellow ’90s rockers Lit, Alien Ant Farm and Smash Mouth show up in August. Flamingo, 702-697-2888.

SWIM NIGHT Did you miss the Fourth of July Bottles & BBQ party with DJs Franzen, Five, Crooked and Shift? Make up for it by checking out the next Tuesday Swim Night at Drai’s Beachclub & Nightclub on July 11, when Snoop Dogg himself rocks the party. The Cromwell, 702-777-3800.

FRIDAY NIGHT LIVE Don’t be afraid to get in the water during the Hard Rock Hotel’s poolside concert series, which also offers cabana rentals for the ultimate party package. Less Than Jake plays July 21, and the Turnpike Troubadours perform August 4 with Charley Crockett. Hard Rock Hotel, 800-473-7625.
