Have you ever been mid-show at Brooklyn Bowl and imagined what it would be like to be onstage? You can find out during Rockstar Karaoke. Get backed by a live band and choose from more than 200 songs. This could be your moment! (At the Linq, 8 p.m., DJ Mustard—born Dijon MacFarlane—is the man behind some of the biggest club bangers of 2014. (You can tell when a song is his, because they all start with the line “Mustard on the beat, ho!”) Last year, Mustard conquered Hard Rock Live, Surrender and Life Is Beautiful. This year, he’s starting fresh with a residency at Light, as part of The Beat concert series. (In Mandalay Bay, 10:30 p.m.,

Australian duo What So Not specializes in “sweaty beats.” When they bring the heat to Surrender, the pair—a mash-up of solo artists Emoh Instead and Harley Streten (a.k.a. Flume)—will be joined by singer Matthew Koma. His golden vocal chords can be heard on Zedd’s “Spectrum” and Tiësto’s “Wasted.” Our guess is this tag team is a test run for Coachella, as both acts are booked for April 11 and 18, and “surprise” collaborations are half the fun at this festival. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m.,

Did somebody say Tiësto? The Dutch titan celebrates his 45th birthday in the booth at Hakkasan. And that’s not all he’s celebrating: The megaclub recently announced it has signed Tiësto to a multiyear residency extension. We’re already looking forward to ringing in his big 5-0 with a table and bottle service. (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m., Would you rather keep it chill? Join local collective Beyond City Lights at Hard Hat Lounge for a no-cover night of breezy beats. Dskovr, Jaizus, Paloom, Boogie Snacks, DJ Zo and Namelss will take turns on the turntables. (1675 Industrial Rd., 10 p.m.,

You’re not tired from last night, are you? You’ve got dayclubbing to do! Get to the Marquee Dayclub Dome for a performance by hip-hop phenom Jeremih. DJs M!ke Attack and Lisa Pittman keep you moving all afternoon. (At the Cosmopolitan, 1 p.m., Ready for Round 2? Get down to the sounds of BYNON at Life. You may recognize him better as Richard Beynon (that stage name is fairly new). The classically trained musician has a background producing classical and jazz albums, and a figurative Ph.D. in rocking club crowds. (In SLS, 10:30 p.m.,

Do you long for the golden era of yore? When drinking was illegal and liquor was produced on the sly? Relive those days during Moonshine Monday at BLVD Cocktail Company. Local ’20s-inspired outfit the Moonshiners provide the tunes, and Stillhouse Moonshine offers the hooch for $10 specialty cocktails. Cheers! (At the Linq, 8 p.m.,
