DJ Mustard at Light It’s about time a Las Vegas club signed ratchet-master DJ Mustard to a contract. Not only is the LA-based producer one of the few high-profile DJs who hadn’t landed a Sin City residency, but his style of hip-hop—faster rhythms, hooky melodies and drop-friendly—seems tailor-made for nightclubs. January 15, doors at 10:30 p.m., $30+ men, $20+ women.
Service Industry Night at 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque This debut of Service Industry Night will likely also serve as the (re-)introduction of the Mandalay Bay throwback venue, which celebrates its grand opening through Saturday. Bonus: The weekly promo’s bookings indicate that house music—read: not EDM—will be on offer, with DJs John Destiny, Azmyth and Silla the Thrilla christening the booth tonight. January 15, doors at 9 p.m., $20, locals and industry free with ID.
Deep SBass at Hard Hat This month’s Deep SBass—a party name that compels you to say it out loud, or at least whisper it in the middle of your office—edition is themed “Puss in Space Boots,” which will include a contest for the most cosmic, sexiest or just flat-out awesome shoes, along with a space-y drink menu created just for the event. Three DJs from the Dancetronauts art car, as well as a fat handful of other local talent, provide the tunes for this Arts District dance-off. January 16, 9 p.m., free.
Feenixpawl at Drai’s Nightclub The Australian house DJ duo’s hit single “In My Mind” has been everywhere since its 2012 debut—all over the airwaves, burning up dancefloors and even featured in Kia’s ubiquitous Soul commercials with those cute and cuddly hamster EDM-heads. And Saturday night, you’ll likely also hear it at Drai’s when Feenixpawl takes the booth at the rooftop Cromwell club. “This is what we’re waiting for,” right? January 17, doors at 10:30 p.m., $30+ men, $20+ women.
Boz Boorer at Beauty Bar UPDATED: The rockabilly singer-songwriter and Morrissey music director/guitarist returns for a DJ engagement at Beauty Bar, where he’ll play post-punk and alternative/indie jams. Joining him outside will be local DJs Hektor Rawkerz (who will be throwing down Smiths/Moz chestnuts), 702 and Maybelline, with live acts The Delta Bombers and Sex in Latex. January 17, doors at 9 p.m., $10, $5 before 11 p.m.
DJ Tracy Young at Revolution From playing the Emmys and Grammys to supplying sets for the likes of Britney Spears, Madonna and former NSYNCer Lance Bass, Young has been serving fresh beats to the masses and VIP crowds for more than 20 years. The veteran, openly gay beat-slinger brings her sound to the Mirage club’s LGBT RevoSundays promo this weekend. Don’t be “Tardy for the Party!” January 18, doors at 10 p.m., $20, locals free before midnight.
Jeremih at Marquee Dayclub Break out the bikinis and board shorts! The Cosmo club is opening its indoor dayclub dome for another mid-winter pool party, this time passing on the big-name beatmeister set for a live performance from “Don’t Tell ’Em” R&B artist Jeremih. In the booth: Local vets M!KEATTACK and Lisa Pittman. January 18, doors at 1 p.m., $30+ men, $20+ women.
AVN Kickoff Party at Chateau Adult film stars are invading Las Vegas for another installment of AVN’s annual Adult Entertainment Expo—and the porny party doesn’t end at the convention room floor, as a number of naughty nightlife events (both public and private) dot the AEE calendar. AVN starts its four-day sexyfest Wednesday night with a kickoff party at Chateau, hosted by Julia Ann and scored by DJ ShadowRed. January 21, doors at 10:30 p.m., $30+ men, $20+ women, locals free.
