Kaskade Hits XS, Todd English P.U.B. Celebrates 12 Beers of Christmas



Thursday, December 18

Hard to believe it’s been two years since the openings of Triple B and Fremont Country Club, but it has. That stretch of Fremont near Sixth Street just wouldn’t feel right now without the bright interiors of those blue and pink bars, welcoming passersby with their warm neon glow and the promise of reasonably priced booze. It’s only right that we toast to the Two-Year Anniversary of the venues, and the birthday of partner DJ Lethal, whose House of Pain records grace Triple B’s walls. The red carpet starts at 8 p.m., and live music follows at 9 p.m. (601 Fremont St., BackstageBarAndBilliards.com.)

Rising electronic DJ Ashley Wallbridge recently enlightened Vegas Seven on what an average day looks like for him: “I go through a good 15 coffees in a day, so by the end of the day I’m on caffeine explosion.” Expect him to be delightfully wired in the booth at Marquee. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m., CosmopolitanLasVegas.com.) Still craving wonky beats? The electronic division of the SKAM Artist collective takes over Life. Tony Arzadon, Sgt Slick, Nathan Scott, Chris Garcia and Caroline D’Amore will all be representing on the ones and twos. (In SLS, 10:30 p.m., SLSLasVegas.com.) Meanwhile, fellow SKAM Artist Bad Boy Bill takes to the decks at Drai’s. Here’s hoping the Chicago house-music pioneer sprinkles his signature sound into his set.

Is your ugly sweater unraveling? Are you searching for a fresh way to express your holiday cheer? Enter the Ugly Ornament Contest (running through Dec. 18) at Commonwealth. The foulest tree fixture will walk away with $1,500 and a $500 donation to the winner’s chosen charity. (525 Fremont St., CommonwealthLV.com.) Kaskade has had a busy month. He released the video for “A Little More” with John Dahlbäck and Sansa, and he announced the debut of his own record label, Arkade. “There is an abundance of raw talent out there, now more than ever. There is also a dire need for new talent to be brought to the forefront,” he posted to Tumblr. Hopefully we’ll get a sample when he spins at XS. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., XSLasVegas.com.)

It’s Christmas Eve eve! And Joe Maz is on hand at Hyde to help get you through to tomorrow. Then you had better start baking some cookies … Santa’s coming soon! (In Bellagio, 9 p.m., HydeBellagio.com.)

Local favorite DJ Mighty Mi commands Surrender for the second annual Bad Milo bash. (That’s just a reference to Mighty Mi’s birth name, Milo Berger. Not to be confused with the straight-to-DVD dark comedy, Bad Milo.) (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., EncoreLasVegas.com.) Before he does a Christmas Day gig with Sami Beigi at Life (10:30 p.m.), Sharam—one half of house duo Deep Dish—delivers a more intimate set at Foxtail. (In SLS, 10 p.m., SLSLasVegas.com.)
