As residents of the Nightlife Capital of the World, we’re spoiled; we’re able to catch some of the biggest DJs on a daily basis, such as Calvin Harris, Tiësto and Steve Angello. But local DJs are thriving, too. Take DJ Kid Conrad, for example. The Las Vegas native has established residencies at clubs including Foxtail, The Bank and 1 Oak, and he still finds the time to make it out to other cities. Last month, Conrad spun at Infusion Lounge in San Francisco and AD in San Diego. He’ll cash out at The Bank tonight, so give him a hero’s welcome. (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m.,

By now, you’ve had ample time to digest The Weeknd’s sophomore effort, Beauty Behind the Madness. The album showcases the Toronto singer’s knack for writing incredibly catchy pop tunes—a departure from the hazy soundscapes of his previous work. Beauty has gotten rave reviews across the board, and it’s turned the previously bedroom producer/singer into a bona fide pop star. See him perform at Drai’s to kickstart your … weekend. (In the Cromwell, 10:30 p.m., Bass invades the space when Bassjackers hit Light. The Dutch duo is composed of DJ Marlon Flohr and producer Ralph van Hilst, who have been best friends since high school. Now, instead of working together on science projects, the two team up to create some hard-hitting house. Not a bad evolution, if you ask us! (In Mandalay Bay, 10:30 p.m., Not into smooth R&B or fist-pumping madness? Borgore brings his signature brand of colossal dubstep to Foxtail Pool. We suggest bringing earplugs. (In SLS, 10:30 a.m.,

Are you following the messy breakup of Martin Garrix and Spinnin’ Records? The 19-year-old electro-house producer left the EDM label after several disagreements regarding music ownership and management. Spinnin’ Records CEO Eelko van Kooten issued a statement late last month, explaining that the label was willing to negotiate a severance, even though Garrix was unwilling to talk. The DJ eventually announced his #DontCrackUnderPressure campaign with TAG Heuer—hinting at the possibility of a new label. Comfort the DJ when he mans the decks at Omnia. The Netherlands’ new blood Julian Jordan opens. (In Caesars Palace, 10:30 p.m.,

Take advantage of the triple-degree heat by hitting up XS for Sunday Nightswim with RL Grime. The Los Angeles DJ/producer seamlessly surfed through a barrage of genres including spine-rattling trap and future bass during his set at last month’s HARD Summer festival. He’s bound to bring a similar variety to this pool party. (In Encore, 10 p.m., Bingo goes from the rec room to the club at Hakkasan when Dutch electro-house producer Bingo Players spins. He recently dropped a “Curiosity” remix EP featuring new takes on his single by Henry Fong and Autolaser. See if he’s got the chops to awaken your curiosity. (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m.,

The Borgeous Army continues to grow. Fans in Montreal welcomed the progressive house DJ with a “Borgeous” chant, shirts and signs when he visited the city last month. And it’s hard not to love the guy; take a listen to “Zero Gravity,” his collab with Canadian singer Lights, and you’ll find her infectiously catchy hook is the perfect complement to his melodic brand of house. Listen to the bumpin’ tune, then catch Borgeous at Marquee. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,
