More details about SLS Las Vegas’ megaclub Life have emerged, including the announcement of Laidback Luke as the headliner for the club’s first official night of operation, August 29, which is one night before Dirty South’s previously revealed gig at the six-story, 20,000-square-foot danceteria. (Erick Morillo performs for the club’s grand opening a week before, on August 23.) A club rep would only classify the bookings as “special appearances” rather than part of any potential residencies, and Life has yet to reveal its exclusive talent lineup.

Additionally, Life, situated at the former Sahara Theater, will be open Friday through Sunday. The SBE venue boasts the industry-leading Funktion-One sound system, as well as a massive LED screen and overhead apparatus that allows for aerialist entertainment. It’s also connected to the 10,000-square-foot rooftop Beach Life pool which, like sister—and also connected—venues Foxtail and Foxtail Pool Club, will offer both day and night escapades (though dayclub programming will begin spring 2015).

As reported by the Sun’s John Katsilometes, Darin Feinstein has filed a defamation and disparagement lawsuit against Megan Trivette, who accused the new Beauty Bar co-owner of harassment in a widely shared Facebook status following her July 5 visit to the Fremont East venue. He and Pawn StarsCorey Harrison recently bought the spot from Paul Devitt, who opened Beauty Bar in 2005.

Drai’s Beach Club and Nightclub will host the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Southern Nevada’s 20th Annual Honorarium on October 18, which will celebrate LGBT supporters from the gaming and casino industry. This isn’t the first mainstream dance spot that has hosted the Honorarium—Palms’ Rain featured the event in 2012, two weeks after its nightclub operations ceased.
