Calvin Harris at Tao Calvin Harris created disco. Well, not exactly, but his electroclash debut album, I Created Disco, put him on the radar, went gold and earned him a set at Tao this week. Catch the Scottish DJ/producer who brought “You Used to Hold Me” and “I’m Not Alone” to the dance floor when he takes over the club for Worship Thursdays. October 7, doors at 10 p.m., $10 and up, locals free.

Down & Derby at The Joint You’ve been looking for an excuse to wear those retro short-shorts again, or at least a public place where pairing them with knee socks isn’t frowned upon. The roller skating disco party moves to the Joint with Shr3d, OB One and M!KEATTACK providing the tunes. You’ll be gettin’ down for a good cause, too: $1 of every ticket sold at the Joint’s box office benefits the Nevada Childhood Cancer Foundation. October 8, doors at 10 p.m., $15 at the door, $5 if you RSVP in advance at

Tarts & Vicars party at Erotic Heritage Museum Tart: A prostitute. Vicar: A religious representative, such as a member of the clergy. Both are open to interpretation for the 18-and-up costume party that’s sure to include mingling not sanctioned by any church. Admission also gives you the chance to win some titillating prizes (Hint: The main event sponsor is Fleshlight). All proceeds benefit the museum, whose troubles you can read about in the October 7 issue on the Weekly. October 9, 7 p.m.-2 a.m., $10.

Jessica Hall

Jessica Hall hosts at Pure Hot chicks don’t just exist inside your computer. See one in person Saturday night as Playboy cybergirl and radio host Jessica Hall parties at Pure. She’s also featured in the October 2010 issue of Hef’s mag, so pick one up on the way to the club in case security lets you close enough to snag an autograph. Just don’t drool on her. Hot chicks hate that. October 9, doors at 10 p.m., $20 and up.

Grand opening of Born and Raised Tavern Let’s go to the BAR! Born and Raised, that is. The new spot for Las Vegans by Las Vegans celebrates its grand opening at midnight on 10/10/10 with a silent auction and benefit for Opportunity Village. October 10, midnight, free, 7260 S. Cimarron Road.

Rehab finale at the Hard Rock Hotel We’re not sure what the Hard Rock Cafe’s suit over the debauchery portrayed on TruTV’s Rehab means for the actual shin-dig, but hit up the last Rehab of the season just in case. Getting in a screaming match with Matt is a sure-fire way to get on-air, by the way (and probably thrown out, too). But that’s what Rehab’s all about! October 10, doors at 10 a.m., $50 for men, $30 for ladies.

Seb Fontaine at Ghostbar Rumor has it Seb Fontaine’s DJing mother conceived him in Ibiza, so you know the dude’s got music in his veins. Dance your cares away to house sounds Sunday at Ghostbar with a set by Seb that’ll likely include his recent track “Thieves, Junkies, Whores.” Plus a guest set by Beatport’s Sir Thomas. October 10, doors at 10 p.m., $30, free for locals.

Naughty Kingdom at Revolution Disney done dirty! Revelers are invited to dress up as their favorite Disney character—regular or raunchy—and to enjoy $5 beers or vodka drinks and a special performance by The Flirt Show with their tranny kids, man kandy and rhinestone kittens. It gives a whole new meaning to the words “Magic Kingdom.” October 10, doors at 10 p.m., $20, free for locals.
