Jason DeRulo Pulls Double-Duty for Talk Dirty


Thursday, April 17

Do long bar lines leave you wondering whatcha gotta do to get a drink? The answer is B.Y.O.B. v. 2.0—bring your own blow-up—at Liquid. During this edition of its Thursday industry party, those who arrive with “appropriate pool inflatable[s]” will be rewarded with free booze. Don’t get too crazy with the pool toys, though; your little cousins need them back when you’re done. (At Aria, 11 a.m., LiquidPoolLV.com.)

Need a new reason to visit Ghostbar? Since Moon’s closure was announced earlier this month, it’s currently the only club-like spot open at the Palms. Need another? This evening they’ll bring in Downtown noisemaker Technicolor—who also spins at Tryst on April 17—and resident Presto One to provide the tunes. (Doors open 8 p.m., Palms.com.) Diablo’s Cantina rolls out the eighth annual Rock N Roll Rodeo, offering $25 all-you-can-drink draft beer and raucous live music from Adolescents, Lords of the Damned and Cold Blue Rebels. Various acts rock the party April 17-19. (At Monte Carlo, 9 p.m., DiablosLasVegas.com.)

What a stand-up guy Diplo is. Not only is he spinning his scheduled session at Surrender (in Encore, 10 p.m., SurrenderNightclub.com), he’s covering Avicii’s shift at Encore Beach Club, too. (At Encore, 11 a.m., EncoreBeachClub.com.) Avicii was forced to postpone the launch of his U.S. tour after undergoing gall bladder surgery in March. Across the way, R&B hit maker Jason DeRulo hosts the season opening of Tao Beach by day. (At the Venetian, 11 a.m., TaoBeach.com.) By night, he holds a release party for his album, Talk Dirty at Tao. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m., TaoLasVegas.com.) Lastly, Santa Barbara’s Seven Lions (one dude, plural name) takes the reins at Marquee Dayclub. We like to think he was named for his awesome mane, but the moniker comes from a character in the book Latro in the Mist by Gene Wolfe. The more you know … (At the Cosmopolitan, 11 a.m., MarqueeLasVegas.com.)

Catch up with Aussie Will Sparks at XS. Prior to a recent show in Philadelphia, the young DJ/producer offered an open invitation for fans to join him for Philly cheesesteaks at a local restaurant. Perhaps if you tweet him recommendations @Will_Sparks, he’ll dine with you here. (In Encore, 10 p.m,, XSLasVegas.com.)

Your Monday doldrums don’t stand a chance against XXX Karaoke at Artisan. A rotating cast of adult-film stars join you in sing-alongs—Journey, anyone? And no, you’re not dreaming. (1501 W. Sahara Ave., 10 p.m., ArtisanHotel.com.)

It’s Earth Day! After you do the right thing and plant a tree, head to Hyde for Lost Angels Industry Night. Residents D-Miles and Eric D-Lux get their hands dirty on the turntables. (In Bellagio, 10 p.m., HydeBellagio.com.)

Think mimosas are just for boozy brunching? Think again. Bay Area DJ Mimosa brings heavy bass to Brooklyn Bowl, and his tasty jams give the drink a run for its money. U.K. house and hip-hop spinner Star Slinger opens the show. (At Linq, doors open 7 p.m., Vegas.BrooklynBowl.com.)

CORRECTION: The print edition of this week’s Seven Nights included the opening of Holly Madison’s 1923 Bourbon & Burlesque on Friday, April 18. This event has since been postponed to May.
