Seven Nights

Thu 12

And we knew him when he was just a cute li’l mood director bouncing around in fishnets and a bunny tail! A big “Happy Birthday!” shout-out to Las Vegas nightlife veteran Jason “JRoc” Craig, whom you may also recognize as a co-star on MTV’s The Pauly D Project, as well as the man with the loudest “thunder clap” around. JRoc celebrates alongside another bunny-tail wearer, Playboy Playmate Tiffany Taylor, at Haze. (In Aria, 10:30 p.m., Blowing up in the electronic-dance-music scene, Belgian brothers Dimitri Vegas and Like Mike stop by for the Splash Dance nighttime swimming soirée at Surrender.

On our list of the best EDM producers ever, Gabriel & Dresden are definitely in the Top 5. The award-winning duo returns to Marquee Nightclub, complete with classics from “Tracking Treasure Down” all the way to their more recent collaboration with Secret Panda Society on “No Reservations.” Fingers crossed they’ll also drop the kick-ass Beatles-meets-Dada Life mash-up “Eleanor Red Meat.” We’ve got our dancing shoes ready, Friday the 13th superstitions be damned. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m., Cut. It. Out! Nostalgia is in the air as Full House’s Uncle Joey, Dave Coulier, brings his brand of stand-up to the Grand Ballroom. We’re guessing he’s nowhere near as blue as his former co-star Bob Saget … but ya never know. Coulier does have an album called Songs in the Key of Beaver. (In Rampart, 7:30 p.m.,

Vive la France! Today is Bastille Day, the national holiday in France commemorating the start of the French Revolution. Multiple local venues are celebrating, but a tip of the beret goes to Marché Bacchus, where not only can you enjoy traditional French culinary delights, you’ll do so overlooking Lake Jacqueline as the Vegas Extreme Skydivers and a team of Navy Seals dive into it. Crazy Horse Paris dancers also make a guest appearance. Ooh la la! (2620 Regatta Dr., 5 p.m., call 804-8008 for reservations.) If you’re tired of going to the Strip for fun in the sun, consider heading downtown to the Oasis Pool at Gold Spike, where DJ D3coy spins dance and deep rhythm for the Neon Electric Pool Party.

Drink and get inked for a good cause. Sailor Jerry Spiced Rum and Studio 21 Tattoo have teamed up to benefit St. Jude’s Ranch for Children of Boulder City for the Where’s The Pool?…Party. No, the tattoo shop didn’t dig a cement pond, but this pool-less pool party will feature pinups in a dunk tank, free cocktails, the SnOw ONO shaved ice truck spiking frozen treats, barbecue, an art show, hula, limbo and cheesy beach attire contests. (6020 W. Flamingo Road, Suite B-2, 7 p.m., If you prefer at least a little pool to go with your party, Tao Beach welcomes DJ/producer Markus Schulz for a trance-tastic top-off to the weekend. (At the Venetian, 10 a.m., Sure, you may want to buy a birthday shot for Porter Robinson during his Nightswim set at XS to show you’re digging his electro-house tunes, but he’s only turning 20 today, so you better wait one more year till the wunderkind is legal. (In Encore, 10 p.m., Did you know porn stars can list their movies of the adult variety on IMDb? Now ya do, so feel free to look up an exhaustive list of cinematic masterpieces from Jayden Cole—including Octopussy 3-D and Bikini Frankenstein—before she hosts Sexy Sundays at Chateau. (In Paris, 10 p.m.,

Mon 16

Just another Manic Mondaze? Not quite for this weekly party at Blue Martini that you should add to your radar, complete with half-off food and cocktails. The Earl Presents crew will be chilling on the patio and celebrating whomever is coming out of the closet next—place your bets now. (In Town Square, 8 p.m., Next in the booth for Magnum Mondays at STK is DJ Reach, who, if you’re lucky, will dole out some of his super-sweet swag. So far we’ve collected booty-shorts, two different tees, a bracelet … (In the Cosmopolitan, 9 p.m.,

Tue 17

Not gonna lie, we don’t know much about the electronic DJ duo dubbed Lazerdisk Party Sex on the docket at 1 Oak tonight. But if the flier and press photos are any indication, expect two dudes in Storm Trooper helmets. And possibly live chickens. Looks like a party to us! (In The Mirage, 10:30 p.m., Another duo is behind the decks as well over at Lavo. Dutch DJ/producers Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano bring the house beats to All Night/Tuesdays. (In the Palazzo, 11 p.m.,

Wed 18

Grab that roll of quarters you’ve been saving for a possible zombie apocalypse fistfight and head down to Insert Coin(s) instead. DuWopRose the Vinylist, DJ Fabian and our girl DJ 88 will spin a high-energy set for the Industry All-Stars Bartending Competition. Dance, drink, support your favorite guest bartenders and play Donkey Kong— all at the same time. (512 E. Fremont St., 10 p.m.,

French Evolution

The Statue of Liberty was a gift to America from France. Similarly, Norman Doray is France’s contribution to the American house-music scene—and the DJ/producer appears to embrace it. He strikes the familiar pose for his latest U.S. tour promo complete with Lady Liberty’s torch. Winning EDM fans over with his track “Chase the Sun,” the admittedly shy guy feels right at home in the DJ booth. Catch the Wynn resident next on July 11 at Surrender and July 13 at XS.
