Ashley Wallbridge Hits Marquee, Yellow Claw Take Over XS



Thursday, August 20

Tiësto’s collaborative single with Berkeley, California, producer KSHMR, “Secrets”
 is anything but a secret. The electro-house smash’s music video has racked up more than 30 million plays on YouTube, and it garnered the attention of DJ superstar Diplo, who gave the tune a facelift in a slow, hard-hitting trap remix. Hear the original tonight at Hakkasan. And if you’re not into Tiësto’s big-room sounds, you can hit up the Ling Ling Club for an open-format set by DJ Sinatra. (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m.,

SpyOn Vegas’ Hot 100 comes to a steamy end at
 Wet Republic with a grand prize of $35,000 and a chance at $1 million. Contestant Rachel McDonough says she’d “remodel her parents’ house” and “go to homeless shelters and bring food” if she were to win. Melissa Ceja said she would “pursue her dreams and start her own bikini line.” Find out if one of these ladies is lucky enough to hit the jackpot. (MGM Grand, 11 a.m., The Friday Night Live concert series welcomes San Diego reggae-rock group Tribal Seeds. The band’s latest effort, Representing, explores its roots with songs like “Fill It Up” and “Rock the Night.” We can’t wait to vibe out to the steady upbeats of “Blood Clot” poolside. As a bonus, The Expanders will open up the show with their “vintage” reggae sounds to keep things uniform. (At Hard Rock Hotel, 8 p.m.,

Your Saturday consists of
 an all-day bender at the Cosmopolitan. Hit Marquee Dayclub for a set by England’s Ashley Wallbridge. He revealed via Facebook that he’s working on another collaboration with trance/ house producer Gareth Emery. If it’s anything like 
the melodic bounce of their previous collabs “DUI” and “Mansion,” we’re in for a treat. (In the Cosmopolitan, 11 a.m., Need a reason to keep drinking? Vegas Seven’s Desert Hops International Beer Festival at Boulevard Pool has 150 for you. Whet your whistle with unlimited sampling
of beers from local and worldwide breweries. And
 if you can’t attend, you can still get your drink on. See Page 23 in print for our beer calendar. (At the Cosmopolitan, 9 p.m.,

It’s Murda! No need to call
 the FBI—that’s just one of Ja Rule’s signature catchphrases. The Queens rapper blesses
us with his signature raspy voice when he hits the stage
at Foxtail Pool Club. We 
hope he performs some of 
his slower, sentimental tunes with Ashanti such as “Always on Time” and “Mesmerize,” but he’s bound to throw in some hard-hitting tracks including “New York” and “Clap Back.” This gives new meaning to “Livin’ It Up!” Read our interview with the rapper here. (At SLS, 10:30 a.m.,

Yellow Claw’s logo is 
a broken, upside down peace sign, and their music perfectly embodies the sentiment. The Amsterdam trap trio is known for such speaker rattling, bass-heavy tunes as “Legend,” featuring Kalibwoy, or
 the extremely twerkable “DKNY.” The group recently collaborated with Dirtcaps, another trio, on a four-song EP titled Eastzane Warriors. Yellow Claw is bound to play some of the songs when they man the decks at XS 
for Movement Mondays. We recommend bringing earplugs, because this one’s gonna get loud. (In Encore, 10 p.m.,

Break out the bananas as Dada Life returns to Wet Republic for Wet at Night. The potassium-fueled Swedish DJ duo is notorious for sporting banana suits during their sets and for always requesting the fruit on their rider. We wonder if the two are as obsessed with the yellow fruit as
we are about their latest electro-house banger, “One Last Night on Earth.” (At MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m., If you’d rather not know where the night will take you, head to Light for Baauer’s Studio B with a surprise musical guest. The trap DJ has brought on such diverse acts as Travi$ Scott, T-Pain and, most recently, Fat Joe, so even if it’s a mystery, it’s still bound to be good. (In Mandalay Bay, 10:30 p.m.,
