A-Trak Shines at Light, Borgeous Brings His Bangers to Drai’s

Your city after dark



Thursday, February 26

House parties always seem like a good idea before you have them. But after the third beer spills on the carpet and that kid you went to high school with throws up on your couch—admit it, you should have just gone out. You can still get those casual at-home vibes (minus the cleanup) during House Party at Artifice. Besides, your iPod is no match for the beats that the Bombmakers, Shelco Garcia and Teenwolf will deliver. (1025 First St., Suite A, 9 p.m., Facebook.com/ArtificeBar.)

Your essentials tonight: drum and bass and booze. Collect the trifecta at this month’s edition of Transmission at Hard Hat Lounge. (9 p.m., Facebook.com/HardHatBar.) In more of an EDM mood? Lucky for you, L.A.-based producer and radio host Borgeous is in the building at Drai’s. Truth be told, we’re listening to his latest banger, “They Don’t Know Us,” on loop. We’d like to know all of the lyrics by the time we hit the dance floor. (In the Cromwell, 10:30 p.m., DraisNightlife.com.)

If you’d told us five years ago that Austin Russell (a.k.a. Chumlee of Pawn Stars) would host the season finale of GBDC, we wouldn’t have believed you. But we’re telling you now that not only is Gold & Silver Pawn’s longest-haired star hosting it, he’s got DJ duties too. Don’t believe us? Show up and see for yourself. (In the Palms, 1 p.m., Palms.com.) Keep day drinking and have a very merry un-birthday at Lavo’s Mad Hatter-themed Party Brunch. Ladies enjoy open bar 2-3 p.m. (In the Palazzo, 2 p.m., LavoLV.com.)

What’s the age difference between April and Andy? What’s Leslie and Ron’s favorite type of food? We’re not telling, because we’ll be there competing on team Gov Buds. (124 11th St., 7 p.m., BunkhouseDowntown.com.) A-Trak has been all up in the news lately. Earlier this month, his track “Out the Speakers” was featured in a Mountain Dew Super Bowl commercial and he recently released a video for “Who Wanna Play,” his collaborative effort with Lex Luger and rapper Que. See what’s next for A-Trak when he hits the decks at Light. (In Mandalay Bay, 10:30 p.m., TheLightVegas.com.)

On Facebook, That 1 Guy describes his sound as “experimental ‘earthshaking future funk’ from the future maybe.” Confused? We’d describe him as a talented one-man band (and Las Vegas local). Catch his sonic surprises at Vinyl. (In Hard Rock Hotel, 9:30 p.m., HardRockHotel.com.) If you’re down for a duo, swing by Hakkasan for sounds by Rev Run and Ruckus.

Dutch mixer DJ Snake is known for producing hits (“Turn Down for What,” “Get Low”) and for his signature shades. He’s so attached to the sunglasses, actually, that he wears them at night. Look for them to make an appearance at Surrender. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m., SurrenderNightclub.com.) And speaking of shade, here’s a friendly heads up: Pool season begins next weekend …
