Seven Nights

Your city after dark

Thu 27

Getting freaky takes on a whole new meaning when the twisted mind of Eli Roth is unleashed on an unsuspecting Las Vegas Strip with the grand opening of the Goretorium. Don your Depends and bring a paper bag for hyperventilation as you enjoy a multilevel maze through a mythical hotel and casino called the Delmont, a ’60s lounge dubbed Baby Dolls, plus zombie dancers, live feedings and special effects. (3717 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 11 p.m., Party with Vegas Seven at Tao as we celebrate the fashionable females who’ve graced the pages of The Look in the Style section. Get your free ticket at (In the Venetian, 10 p.m., Guinness Day! Technically it’s called Arthur’s Day—celebrating Arthur Guinness, the lad behind the stout. Rí Rá will hold pint glasses high for a Guinness toast at 5:59 p.m.—no idea why that specific time—but get there at 5:30 p.m., as the first 100 people get a free Guinness, plus $5 Guinness drafts, Black Lager and Foreign Extra Stout all day. And it wouldn’t be a party without the Guinness Girls and live music from Stephen Leeson & The Shenanigans. (In the Shoppes at Mandalay Place, 5:30 p.m.,

You heard about her first in the May 17 issue of Vegas Seven, now our new favorite femme fatale, Audrey Napoleon, is gigging all over Las Vegas. Next up, catch Audrey rocking the party at Surrender along with Steve Aoki, as she brings her brand of “underground pop” to the dance floor. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., Sometimes we poke around on Facebook to find the events you might have missed. One such party is the 18-and-up Electric Hotel, promising a night of dancing, swimming, drinking (if you’re over 21, of course), sleeping and more dancing with 24 DJs on three stages—truth be told we don’t recognize a single one of ’em, but it’s always good to check out new artists. And if P.L.U.R. (Peace, Love, Unity, Respect) is the motto, that works for us! Buy tickets at (At the Royal House, 7 p.m., Another off-the-beaten-path event we came across is the Epyk vs. BePM party with beat warriors using the decks as weapons, including Vivid Tadpole, Chris Dau, Travis Harrington, DJ 3a$y, Demarco Cruz, Brett Rubin and the BePM Krew. (At the Artisan, 10 p.m.,

Not that we’re saying MTV is the go-to source for electronic dance music (actually, we don’t recommend it at all), but it’s a pretty good sign a DJ is on to something when he’s named an Artist to Watch by the network. Such is the case for German house spinner Deniz Koyu who stops by Encore Beach Club. (In Encore, 11 a.m., E! correspondent and Grammy nominee Clinton Sparks returns to Gallery with “My Awesome Party” and a DJ set. (In Planet Hollywood, 10:30 p.m., Did you know the co-founder of Instagram, Kevin Systrom, was an EDM DJ before making millions in technology land? If you read our interview you did. Systrom spins at Rain Nightclub with Zen Freeman. (In the Palms, 11 p.m., Drummer Travis Barker teams up with turntablist extraordinaire Mix Master Mike for a night of bumpin’ beats at Haze. (In Aria, 10:30 p.m.,

Earn a free drink with any social-networking check-in. (6851 W. Flamingo Road, 10 p.m.)

Mon 1

There really is a day for everything. Take National Sake Day, for example. The crew at Koi celebrates with Sparkling Hana Blossom sake cocktails. Or score a bottle of Koi Sake for $85 if you really want to celebrate in style. (In Planet Hollywood, 5:30 p.m., Another new party alert: So Delicious kicks off tonight and every Monday, presented by DJ Amnesia along with local guest spinners each week who bring pretty much every EDM genre you can think of to the 18-and-up event at the Italian American Supper Club.

Wed 3

Speaking of a gay ol’ time, keep it going with Drink & Drag sister club, Krave, for WTF?! 🙂 Wednesdays!, happy face included. Proving pole-dancing is an equal-opportunity sport, drinking games will be followed by dance contests (your support crowns the winner). DJ Michael Graves mixes it up while the LGBT set and friends get two-for-one drinks by texting “GAY” to 313131 and no cover for Nevada residents before 12:30 a.m. (In the Miracle Mile Shops, 10:30 p.m., At our go-to Wednesday night spot, Insert Coin(s), the Versus party presents the Battle for Residency round two, featuring DJ Bozak, DJ Green and DJ Finyl competing for regular gigs at the hip hot spot.

Dance or Die

By Deanna Rilling

On a list of DJ/producers who deserve mad respect, Puerto Rico native Robbie Rivera would be in the Top 10 (he gets bonus points for being a nice guy, as well). We caught up with the Miami-based Rivera in advance of his next gig at XS on Sept. 28 for an uncensored chat about DJ polls, staying positive and tasty tracks.
