Dance music is no longer Ne-Yo’s main chick. After having success with his EDM-heavy R.E.D. album, the Las Vegas product says his upcoming release, Non Fiction, will be “99.999998 percent R&B.” Maybe he’ll sneak some of that flavor into his appearance at Surrender. We wouldn’t mind being serenaded with his new single “Money Can’t Buy.” Not at all. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., SurrenderNightclub.com.)
Friday, July 4
Ain’t no party like America’s birthday party! There is a wealth of options for going hard on our nation’s big day. Get splashy with Afrojack at Wet Republic (at the MGM Grand, 11 a.m., WetRepublic.com) or mash-up duo DJs from Mars (they’re really from Italy) at the Palms Pool for Ditch Fridays (at the Palms, noon, Palms.com.) For hip-hop, pop over to Downtown’s LVCS for a set by DJ Drama. (425 Fremont St., 9 p.m., LVCountrySaloon.net.) Back on the Strip, Drai’s Beach Club & Nightclub (a killer locale for watching Strip fireworks) hosts Ummet Ozcan of Turkish/Dutch descent. (In the Cromwell, 10 p.m., DraisNightlife.com.) For more Fourth of July parties we couldn’t fit here, turn to Page 52 or visit VegasSeven.com/July4.

After yesterday’s blowout, you might need a spa day, or at least a Champagne facial. Nightlife photographer Kirill Was Here comes to the rescue at Tao Beach for another edition of LasRAGEous. (At the Venetian, 11 a.m., TaoBeach.com.) By night, DJ Khaled spins at Tao. You may know him for his Grammy-nominated track, “I’m On One” with Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and Drake. Or you may just recognize his beard as one of the most robust in the biz. (In the Venetian, 10 p.m., TaoLasVegas.com.)

G-Unit’s DJ Whoo Kid returns to The Bank. If we’re lucky, he might drop previews from the freshly reunited rap crew’s forthcoming mixtape. If we’re not, we can at least delight in a recent radio interview Whoo Kid conducted with UNLV alum/star chef Guy Fieri. The bleached one gabs about jerk chicken, guest DJ sets and Food Network groupies. It’s as amazing as it sounds. (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m., TheBankLasVegas.com.) Meanwhile at Hakkasan, Swedish duo Dada Life go bananas and New York’s The Chainsmokers encourage you to snap self-portraits with their viral earworm “#SELFIE.” (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m., HakkasanLV.com.)

Looking for your missing puzzle piece? You might just find ’em at the Stop Light Singles Mixer: Rubix Cube edition in the Foundation Room. You’ll pile on six strands of different colored beads, then swap with other singles until you have only one hue around your neck. (In Mandalay Bay, 8 p.m., MandalayBay.com.)
Tuesday, July 8
If you didn’t go to Bloq Party at the Linq last month, fear not. While it was originally announced to run through June, the Tuesday bash continues this month. This means you still can dance at the silent disco at 9 p.m. (now held atop the fountain), score restaurant and retail deals, and ride the High Roller for half-price with Nevada ID. (6 p.m., Caesars.com/TheLinq.)
Wednesday, July 8
Check out Las Vegas local Jeremy Cornwell at Lavo. He does his own beat boxing, vocals and guitar to create fresh covers of pop favorites. Sneak a peek at Facebook.com/JeremyCornwellProject before you go. (In the Palazzo, 9 p.m., LavoLV.com.) Or, swing by Light to catch Dutchman Sandro Silva. (In Mandalay Bay, 10 p.m., TheLightVegas.com.)
CORRECTION: The print edition of Seven Nights lists a performance by Too $hort at 1 Oak on July 4th. This performance has since been cancelled.
