High Rollers Weekend Kick-Off Party at Beauty Bar American scooter enthusiasts and their brethren from across the pond congregate Downtown to (literally) roll deep for an annual U.K./U.S. scooter rally this weekend. The Yankees and Brits ditch their wheels Thursday, bar-crawling on foot to fully take in the DTLV sights, concluding with a rager at Beauty Bar featuring DJs and live acts. February 26, 9:30 p.m., free.
House Party at Artifice The event title is misleading—Artifice being an urban lounge and not an actual house—but it’s the carefree spirit of a house party that local producer/DJ duo Shelco Garcia and Teenwolf are looking to re-create. “We’re going to be playing everything and anything we want,” the duo announced on Facebook, and if you’ve heard its multi-genre musical range, you know it basically already does. Local act The Bombmakers support. February 26, 9 p.m., free.
Tony Arzadon at Light Chicago native Tony Arzadon has been a fixture in Las Vegas for years, going back to Tabu, joining (and re-joining) the roster at Wet Republic, landing a stint with Wynn’s nightlife entities and now holding court at Light. His accessible style of house and big-room beats oughta suit the fickle Friday night crowd just fine—and per his social media updates, he’s coming with some new tunes. February 27, doors at 10 p.m., $40+ men, $20+ women.
Pentatonix at Marquee Didn’t score tickets to the Grammy-winning a cappella quintet’s sold-out concert at the Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea? Marquee offers fans of The Sing-Off’s 2011 champions a second chance to hear the group’s entrancing melodies with an off-kilter booking Saturday night. Also supplying sound: Local vet DJ M!KEATTACK. February 28, doors at 10 p.m., $40+ men, $20+ women.
Official Color Run Afterparty at Ghostbar Fremont Street will look a lot different Saturday morning after participants in the annual 5K get bombed with every color imaginable along their jaunt through Downtown Las Vegas. The party doesn’t end at the finish line, though, as runners receive comp entry at the top-of-the-Palms debauch-fest Saturday afternoon. Did we mention Chumlee from Pawn Stars is DJing? February 28, doors at 1 p.m., $10, local ladies and Color Run participants free.
Spin 4 a Cure at Hard Hat Lounge Cancer sucks, as anyone can tell you. In fact, Groove Factory LV would like to tell you more, as it’s working with national group Beats Drop Cancer—an advocacy group for the electronic dance music community—on this Saturday night dance-off. The fun part: Local talent will be spinning everything from house and drum ’n’ bass to trance and speed garage. The conscious part: Booths will be set up to educate revelers further on the cause (and medicinal marijuana, too) and all proceeds benefit Beats Drop Cancer. February 28, 7 p.m., donations taken at the door.
David Guetta at XS This is the first of many, many opportunities to see the Frenchman at XS in the next three months—dude’s only taking one week off from Vegas in the next 12—as this weekend marks the launch of his Listen Tour ... which is basically his Las Vegas tour plus a handful of appearances in Miami and California. Watch: XS will make a third of its annual bottle revenue on Guetta’s string of dates alone. February 28, doors at 10 p.m., $75+ men, $20+ women.
Get Your Balls Wet at Revolver Get your head out of the gutter—we’re talking beer pong, bros! The Santa Fe Station saloon hosts the tourney throughout March, with weekly prelims leading up to the March 29 Final Four event. Start practicing that arch—and smack-talking—because the Beirut champions take home a cool $1,000. Sundays through March, doors at 8 p.m., $25 entry for tourney.
