Seven Nights

Your city after dark

Thu 18

Clubbing has gone to the dogs. And we don’t mean “dawgs,” as in your boys, homies, bros, etc. Marquee Dayclub transforms into Barquee to celebrate the fifth anniversary of Noah’s Animal House. Complimentary margaritas will be available for humans, while a doggie open bar offers treats and refreshments for puppies. Dogs must be 25 pounds or less, and a leash is required. For more information, e-mail (At the Cosmopolitan, 6-8 p.m., If your pooch is up for a pup crawl (see what we did there?), the next installment of the monthly Yappy Hour at Rumor gets into the spirit with its Howl-o-Ween Spooktacular and a doggie costume contest, as well as a fundraiser for the Animal Foundation. (455 E. Harmon Ave., 6-9 p.m., Your homework assignment before heading out tonight: Google “Quasar” by Hard Rock Sofa. Pretty banging, right? Now imagine the energy that track will create on the dance floor! The Russian duo headlines at Surrender. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m.,

Seven Nights is usually lighthearted, but we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge a loss to the scene, DJ Ben LaVee. An official Monster Energy DJ and frequent face at Tao and Lavo, LaVee died in August, leaving behind a wife and two children. Monster and the Hard Rock Hotel have teamed up for a charity poker tournament in his honor. E-mail for details. (9 p.m.-midnight.) Life is Good for Nas these days. His latest album is a smash success, and he’ll be stopping by for an appearance at Tao to celebrate … Maybe he’ll even bring ex-wife Kelis’ now infamous abandoned wedding dress from the cover as his date. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m., Did Big Boi say what we think he said on his latest “She Said OK”?! (Pause for a quick Internet search.) Oh, wow, yup, yup he did. We’re probably not allowed to print the lyrics, so if you want to hear for yourself those envelope-pushing rhymes, catch him live at The Bank. (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m.,

Sat 20

Just when the piñata withdrawal became almost too much to bear and we were plotting the best way to crash the neighbor kid’s quinceañera, GBDC (Ghostbar Dayclub) returns. But this isn’t any ol’ daytime soirée. The second season promises even more piñata poppin’, confetti explodin’, champagne spillin’, cryo blastin’, sunglass wearin’, 40-ounce brown-baggin’, costume rockin’ (yes, you’re encouraged to participate) and all the dancing you can stand. (In the Palms, 1 p.m., Have you checked out the 2012 America’s Best DJ winner Markus Schulz’s new album Scream yet? One of the tracks is the ethereal “Love Rain Down” featuring vocalist Seri. She’ll be stopping by to perform at Krave. (In the Miracle Mile Shops, 10:30 p.m.,

Sun 21

Whatever you do, don’t call the music of Wolfgang Gartner “complextro.” Yes, we know it says so on his Wikipedia page, but y’all have to stop using that as a reliable reference. Don’t believe us? We got the down low on his hatred of the term that’s been used to label his tunes and more before his next gig at XS. Read all about it at (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., We keep joking that we’re gonna run away and join the circus, but haven’t quite mastered the high wire yet. To hold us over, we’ll hit up the return of XIV Vegas Sessions at Hyde for a Neon Circus party. Don your brightest attire as the venue channels the big top with exotic animals, trapeze artists and (eek!) clowns. Nathan Scott provides the tunes, and the party’s creator Mio Danilovic serves as ringmaster for his birthday. (In Bellagio, 5 p.m.,

Mon 22

Hmm, so apparently DJ Cheapshot earned his moniker after he sucker-punched the midwife as a newborn. Guess that means the beats will be hard! Catch him spinning at the next installment of Magnum Mondays at STK. (In the Cosmopolitan, 9 p.m.,

Tue 23

Happy birthday to DJ Lema, Vegas’ Best Resident DJ (as named in our Best of the City issue)! He’ll be celebrating at Lavo, so expect a plethora of champagne showers, a snazzy cake, confetti, signs spelling out his name being held by scantly clad cocktail servers—oh, whoops. Did we give away the surprise? C’mon, we know the drill. Yo, Lema—we’ll stock up on Pedialyte and NoHo for ya so Wednesday isn’t as rough. (In the Palazzo, 11 p.m.,

Wed 24

Calling all stylish ladies and gentlemen: Every Wednesday, Lily highlights a rotating roster of designers for the Fashionista Social Club. For this installment Alfred Dunhill, the British luxury brand for men, will set the tone. Hey, if Jude Law is a spokesman and James Bond rocks the accessories, you know it’s gotta be cool and sexy. (In Bellagio, 8 p.m.,

DJ Pauly D has a doppelgänger


DJ Pauly D has a doppelgänger

By Jason Scavone

First it was Deadmau5. Then we had Cazzette. Now, in the fine tradition of DJs or DJ-related-people wearing weird crap on their heads, we have the giant Pauly D mascot head. God help us all. Whether getting in on the headgear craze or just taking a swipe at Deadmau5 following their Twitter-fueled public spat in May, Pauly D was interrupted during his set at Rehab on Oct. 7 by a creepy-as-hell giant Pauly D bobblehead, who jumped on the decks and sprayed the crowd with champagne.
