Seven Nights

This week in your city.

Thu 19

Tired of “Waiting by the phone? Yeah, just hang it up; I promise you, you’ll never be walking alone.” Indeed, you won’t, at least not among the industry crowd at Tao when Dirty South stops by to spin his new club-banger, “Walking Alone,” and other house-y treats. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m., Big ups to the House Society Crew! Keith Evan, Carlos Sanchez and B. Minogue’s Soundbar party celebrates 11 years. The U.K.’s Joey Negro spins for the celebration in the Boom Box Room at Marquee. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,

Fri 20

Happy 4/20, cannabis connoisseurs! In honor of the “holiday,” blaze over to the eNVy Tokers Wild Showcase. With bands including Good Greens and Burning Agrestic, expect a haze overhead no matter how hard security tries to spot where that dank smell originated. Irie! (House of Blues, 8 p.m., Get your excuses ready: Ditch Fridays at the Palms Pool are back. If you get canned for skipping work, there’s $10,000 up for grabs to the hottest entourage. Kelis (1) performs at the season opener. (At Palms, 11 a.m., If you’re looking for somewhere a little more low-key to soak up the sun—and avoid those annoying bikini-top tan lines—Venus Pool Club also opens today. (In Caesars Palace, 11 a.m.,

Sat 21

Got “LE7ELS”? You’re about to have more at the season opening of Marquee Dayclub with Avicii (2). If his hit hasn’t driven you crazy yet (thanks, every DJ playing it nightly, TV commercials, clothing stores, etc.), this probably will be the busiest pool party today, so bring your A-game and best bathing suit. (In Cosmopolitan, 11 a.m. “Whoo’s DJing!” “Who?” “No, the hip-hop DJ at Gallery tonight is Whoo Kid!” (3) “Oh! I get it. What about upstairs at Bazaar under the Eiffel Tower?” “Dutch trance DJ/producer Menno de Jong.” “Got any jokes about his name?” “I know his last name sounds more like ‘de Yong’ than ‘Jong,’ but he’s super tall and plays really awesome sets, so take that one at face value.” (In Paris, 10:30 p.m.,

Sun 22

Happy Earth Day! Although we didn’t catch wind of anything particularly green going on in the nightlife scene for the occasion as of press time, maybe just remember to take home and reuse the souvenir Rehab cups instead of trashing them? Perhaps DJ Pauly D (4) will cut back on the hair products in a conservation effort, and Pitbull, who’s also appearing for the season opener, continues his own crusade against harmful UV rays by never taking off his shades. (At the Hard Rock Hotel, 10 a.m., Confess your sins about not recycling at the next installment of Dub Church. DJs BPSS, Michael Toast, PhatCat, Reps-One and more lead the sermon in the King’s Room. (In the Rio, 10 p.m.,

Mon 23

As much as we’ve heard the Alesso remix of Starkillers & Alex Kenji’s “Pressure,” featuring Nadia Ali, it’s still so friggin’ good. That’s why we’re adding Alesso’s gig at XS to our calendar, because there’s definitely a lot more where that came from in his arsenal, plus Chris Garcia will be on hand to warm up the room. (In Encore, 10 p.m., Spinning for a royal wedding—that’s something you don’t see on a résumé every day. British DJ Sam Young not only rocks it for the monarchy and Sir Elton John, but has been named London’s best DJ. Twice. Young is stateside to spin for Magnum Mondays at STK. (In the Cosmopolitan, 9 p.m.,

Tue 24

The industry can get its party on as usual Tuesday night for Lost Angels at Hyde with DJs Jace One, Politik and Derrick Anthony. (In Bellagio, 10 p.m., Or hang with more nightlife peeps at 1 Oak, where our buddies Ikon and Karma will spin. (In The Mirage, 10:30 p.m., But what we’re really excited about on this weekday? Alcoholic snow cones!!! The Nickel F*cking Beer Night crew is getting a snow-cone machine and starting off summer by combining booze with brain freezes. (At Beauty Bar, 10 p.m.,

Wed 25

Are you a fan of Childish Gambino? They’ll be here on May 27, but their tour DJ will get here first. Meet L.A.-native, New York-based SoSuperSam (5). Spinning a little of everything, the skilled she-jay provides the soundtrack at Savile Row tonight. Plus, she remixed the group The xx, so bonus cool points for her. (In Luxor, 10:30 p.m.,

Laissez les Bons Temps Rouler!

By Deanna Rilling

Kaskade. Benny Benassi. Above & Beyond. While you may be familiar with the superstar residents that headline Marquee Nightclub, a DJ who’s climbing the ranks also regularly calls Marquee home. With solid, original productions, revered bootlegs, such as his versions of Snow Patrol’s “Chasing Cars” and Axwell’s “Heart Is King” vs. R.E.M.’s “Losing My Religion,” plus his Concentrate podcast, Blake Jarrell has been a fixture at Marquee since the club’s opening.
