Digital Lab at Marquee Dayclub The up-and-coming, Miami-based beatmeister’s blend of electro and house is sure to have dayclub disciples gyrating Friday afternoon, when Digital Lab occupies the booth at Cosmo’s rooftop oasis. September 12, doors at 11 a.m., $20+ men, $10+ women.
Tiësto at Hakkasan Why would this Tiësto bash be any different from his other residency gigs at Hakkasan? For one, it’s dubbed the Gold Party, as the Dutch EDM slayer will celebrate singles “Wasted” and “Red Lights”—both from his Vegas-inspired A Town Called Paradise album—being certified gold (or passing the 500,000 sales mark). He’s also debuting the video for “Light Years Away,” and when was the last time you watched a music video in a nightclub—or anywhere? With DJs Dzeko & Torres and Crooked. September 12, doors at 10:30 p.m., $75+ men, $30+ women.
Dynamite: A Night of Bowie ... at Beauty Bar The latest Beauty Bar tribute night sees DJ Allen playing songs by the Thin White Duke, along with those he may have influenced, ranging from 1970s glam nuggets to post-punk and indie anthems of the modern era. Bonus: The best Bowie costume could win a $50 bar tab. Wrap yourself in Ziggy Stardust drag and let’s dance. September 12, 10 p.m., free.
Floyd Mayweather and Jeremih at Vanity The 11-time world champion boxer takes on Marcos Maidana at MGM’s Grand Garden Saturday night—will he be victoriously celebrating afterwards or drowning his defeat up in VIP? Find out when he hosts an after-fight bash while “Birthday Sex” artist Jeremih performs. In the booth: DJ Whoo Kid. September 13, doors at 10:30 p.m., $100+ men, $75+ women.
Mercer at Hard Rock Live First we got DJ Snake, now we have his colleague and collaborator Mercer (see the drop-filled “Lunatic”). If a third jackin’/trap/bass producer starts blowing up the big rooms of America, is it an Entertainment Weekly-verified trend? And speaking of trends, check out the list of EDM biggies playing Mercer of late: Zedd, Hardwell, Martin Garrix and David Guetta, just to name a few. Catch him before some enormo-club inks him and charges you triple. With Bare and Jauz. September 13, doors at 8 p.m., $29-$50.
Underground Sundays with Cirez D at Life The most exciting industry-party announcement in eons surfaced when Life revealed it would devote Sundays to both local nightlife personnel and dance music left of the EDM dial. The SLS club couldn’t have picked a bigger eyebrow-raiser for the kickoff: Cirez D, aka Eric Prydz. But don’t come expecting “Liberate,” “Allein” or any of Prydz’s other floodlit progressive jams—Cirez D represents his techno-fanboy side, and he’ll play darker and harder than a Vegas main room is accustomed to hearing. September 14, doors at 10:30 p.m., $28.
