Seven Nights

This week in your city.

Thu 28

“Ooh, baby, I like it raw …” No, Ol’ Dirty Bastard isn’t in town, but the Raw Solstice indie arts showcase is, over at the Royal House with fashion shows, live music from Dinosaur Hipnosis, Jefferson Montoya and Indigo at the Park, as well as DJ/painter (yes, painter) ART702 and a gallery displaying the work of Raw artists. (99 Convention Center Drive, 8 p.m., You’ll always know at least one member of boy-band 98 Degrees thanks to the tattoo of their logo on his arm. Said member is Jeff Timmons, and you can live out all of your ’90s fantasies partying with him for the launch of the new Wired nightclub experience at Ovation. (In Green Valley Ranch, 10 p.m.,

Fri 29

Calling all Millers—as in Aaron Miller, Don Miller, Holly Miller, Ed Miller, Miller McMillerson and even Miller M. Miller if your parents were cruel. Basically, if you have Miller anywhere in your name and the ID to prove it, the “It’s Miller Time on Us” event at the Palms Pool will give you free admission to Ditch Fridays, three free Miller Lites and a $25 It’s Miller Time gift card. (At the Palms, 9 a.m., It’s not a weekend in Las Vegas unless there’s a Playmate hosting somewhere. Get your eyeful when former Playmate of the Year Sara Underwood hosts at Tabú. (In MGM Grand, 10 p.m., “Who Wants Spaghetti?” Young’un DJ/producer Pierce Fulton caught the attention of the EDM world with that track, and now spins for Aoki’s House at Surrender. We’re thinking showering the crowd with cooked pasta should be on the agenda. Can you say “Noodle Fight Night?” (In Encore, 10:30 p.m.,

Sat 30

Here’s hoping Twitter’s Fail Whale takes the weekend off because our city will be getting its social networking on for Social Media Day Las Vegas 2012. House of Blues has partnered with Yelp where your Tweets can earn free stuff throughout the night. Attendees must RSVP at (In Mandalay Bay, 10 p.m., “Lite-Brite, Lite-Brite, turn on the magical shining light!” But in this case it’s not one of the toys from our youth, but ladies wearing their tightest and brightest dresses to compete for $3,000 in prizes at Cherry (re-opened for the summer) during its Light-Brite party. (In Red Rock Resort, 10 p.m.,

Sun 1

The old NES game Zelda is back on our radar thanks to DJ/producer Zedd turning the theme music into a quirky electro track. Speaking of his tracks, Zedd’s SoundCloud is so popular, the volume of comments left on his tracks is an ocean of blue lines on anything he’s posted. Zedd is now on Skrillex’s OWSLA label and played Marquee Saturday night. If you missed that gig, catch him today at Tao Beach for BPM Sundays. (At Venetian, 10 a.m., Aaaand, boom goes the dynamite. Las Vegas’ own DJ duo The BombMakers will be blowing up beats ranging from hip-hop and dubstep to house and other EDM poolside at Bare. (At The Mirage, 11 a.m.,

Mon 2

Here’s where we get to say we told ya so. In the June 7 issue of Vegas Seven we profiled Tommy Trash, predicting he’d be the next big thing in EDM. And it’s shaping up to be true with ever-increasing support from big name DJs and a plethora of gigs, including this one tonight at Marquee Nightclub. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,

Tue 3

Oh, yes it’s ladies night, and the drinking’s right at this latest offering from Rumor. Sweet Beats Ladies Night takes place every Tuesday, with complimentary gift bags for the first 30 gals, cocktails for all women from 8-10 p.m., sexy house music, female-centric art, live body-painting and a fashion show. (455 E. Harmon Ave., 8 p.m., Speaking of ladies, two of ’em will be handling the ones and twos in the form of Swedish shejays Rebecca & Fiona at Lavo for All Night/Tuesdays. (In the Palazzo, 11 p.m.,

Wed 4

Happy birthday, America! Really all you need to do for a little excitement tonight is look toward the Strip for fireworks-a-plenty (depending how the summer blow-dryer-to-the-face winds behave). We’ve also got a roundup of the best places to celebrate the Fourth of July. But if you’re simply looking for somewhere to shake your “Money Maker” and “Act a Fool,” Ludacris performs live for a special night at Haze. (In Aria, 10:30 p.m.,

Tijs Verwest is easily the world’s most notable DJ. He’s coming out with a line of headphones, starting his own recording label, Musical Freedom, and just launched a new Sirius XM channel called Club Life Radio during Ultra Music Festival. Tiësto, as the Dutchman is best known, has also just dropped his follow-up to his Las Vegas-inspired Club Life.
