Ke$ha (4) always has something crazy up her sleeves, and those sleeves are usually covered in fake blood and glitter. So what sort of antics is she up to tonight? Find out when the party princess pops into 1 Oak. (In The Mirage, 10:30 p.m., 1OakLasVegas.com.)

Happy Labor Day! Here’s an action-packed agenda for your extra day of fun. Start by splashing at Wet Republic, where Steve Aoki (5) provides the soundtrack to your sunbathing.
