Hyde Gets Saved by the Bell, Happy Twerksgiving at Surrender



Thursday November 20

Electronic producer Must Die! doesn’t take himself too seriously. Take his moniker, for example. The Houston native told Vibe his stage name was inspired by the 2006 rom-com John Tucker Must Die. He says, “I thought that naming myself after something terrible would be a good laugh.” He also lists “pan flutes” as a personal interest on Facebook. Catch his winning personality in action when he brings the Death & Magic Album Tour Pt. 2 to Body English. (In Hard Rock Hotel, 10:30 p.m., HardRockHotel.com.)

Friday November 21

Touted as the “world’s largest paint party,” Life in Color splashes down at Cashman Center. It’s a great excuse to wear sensible clothes while dancing to Strip headliners Adventure Club and Borgeous, and rap duo Rae Sremmurd (of “No Flex Zone” fame). Your tube dresses and suits don’t stand a chance at this party. (850 Las Vegas Blvd. North, 9 p.m., Facebook.com/LICTour.) If you want music, dancing and Mexican food all in one place, get thee to Beauty Bar for a Global Party for the Masses. Bilingual rhyme slinger Olmeca tops the bill with DJ Canyon Cody and local emcees Misty Reign and Tree Hill. Don’t miss live art, a photo booth and, oh yeah, the grub. (517 Fremont St., 9 p.m., TheBeautyBar.com.)

Saturday November 22

There ain’t a whole lot happening out in Southern Highlands, so Distill fills the void with an ’80s-themed blowout. Dust off your DayGlo and tease your roots for the costume contest. (We’re going as Duckie from Pretty in Pink.) Best of all? Even the drink specials are throwbacks, with Bartles & James and Jell-O shots on the menu. (4830 W. Pyle Ave., 8 p.m., DistillBar.com.) Hungry? Head to Bunkhouse for the Chicken Shack. Although it’s a new location (the poultry-palooza was previously held at Double Down Saloon), you can still bet on free fried chicken, funky tunes and fierce moves by the Shack Shakette go-go dancers. This rendition’s even got a performance by Thievery Corporation’s live drummer, Congo Sanchez. (124 S. 11th St., 11 p.m., BunkhouseDowntown.com.)



Sunday November 23

Still got that DayGlo? Work it again at Hyde for an ’80s- and ’90s-themed XIV Sessions. Your hosts for the evening are none other than Saved by the Bell’s Screech (Dustin Diamond) and Mr. Belding (Dennis Haskins). A couple of bottles oughta suspend your disbelief when you see these two in a nightclub together. (In Bellagio, 6 p.m., SBE.com.) BBC Radio 1 host Pete Tong comes back to Life. This time, dance music’s elder statesman brings Welsh electronica marvel Sasha for support. (In SLS, 10:30 p.m., SLSLasVegas.com.) Green Lantern is the name of a celebrated DC Comics character, a crappy feature film based on that character and a DJ born James D’Agostino. The latter is known for fusing trap, hip-hop and EDM beats. Give Lantern’s Iggy Azalea-laced remix of “Know About Me” a listen before his set at XS. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., XSLasVegas.com.)

Monday November 24

Football season is in full swing, and you shouldn’t have to sacrifice partying for pigskin. Combine your passions at Cabo Wabo Cantina, where on Monday nights you can view the games and score a $59 unlimited food-and-beverage buffet. Or bypass the booze and pay only $29 for the grub. (In the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, CaboWaboCantina.com/Vegas.)

Tuesday November 25

It’s been awhile since we’ve mentioned the Bloq Party at the Linq, but you should know it’s still going on every Tuesday. Flash your local ID for half-off rides on the High Roller, and stick around for the silent disco on the promenade at 9:30 p.m. (TheLinq.com.)

Wednesday November 26

What’s the best way to work off your Thanksgiving dinner before it even begins? Twerksgiving at Surrender. (Yes, Microsoft, “Twerksgiving” is a word.) Unhinged dance moves are encouraged as the always-dapper Diplo mans the decks. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., SurrenderNightclub.com.)

CORRECTION: The print edition of this week’s Seven Nights mentions a performance by Common at Drai’s on Friday, Nov. 21. This event has since been cancelled.
