In the annual Song of Summer debate, one thing’s always certain: Every contender is overplayed on the radio. And whether we admit it or not, we all know the hooks to “Fancy,” “Wiggle” and “Problem.” So where can your ears and mind find freedom? Soulkitchen at Vanguard Lounge. In this month’s installment of underground house, resident Edgar Reyes will be joined by frequent Drai’s Afterhours and After spinner Justin Baulé, (516 Fremont St., 10 p.m., VanguardLV.com.)

In a recent interview with the London Evening Standard, Deadmau5 throws heavy shade at his contemporaries and forewarns the certain death of EDM.

If you intend to get drunk this afternoon and watch Taryn Manning, you can either stream Orange Is the New Black on Netflix, or you can see her in the flesh, spinning at Palms Pool. If by chance you hoped to see musician Ryan Cabrera DJ as well, you’re in luck! (At the Palms, noon, Palms.com.) Swing by Big Dog’s Brewery for the reggae-tinged Summer Beer Fest. Pay-as-you-go to sample more than 40 international beers, including the grand dame: Big Dog’s own Summer Peach. (4543 N. Rancho Dr., 6 p.m., BigDogsBrews.com.)

Now to revisit this Song of Summer issue… it’s quite all right if you want to get your “Wiggle” on when Jason Derulo performs at Rehab. He might even require it.

House maestro Hook N Sling will collaborate live with quick-rhyming Pusha T. (At Mandalay Bay, 10 p.m., EclipseVegas.com.) R&B singer The Weeknd has worked his way from the intimate Ling Ling Club to Life Is Beautiful festival this October. But first, he’ll make his debut in Hakkasan’s main room.
