It’s a huge weekend for all music lovers, so get it started right. Let Amsterdam trap trio Yellow Claw push you into party mode. Since forming in 2010, the group has released a handful of EPs and singles including the monster festival anthem “Shotgun” and the rambunctious “Till It Hurts.” Now it’s time for a full-length. The trio debuted “Run Away,” the first single from their first album, via a music video on The tune shows a more melodic, artistic side of the trio that differs from the usual hard-hitters. You can listen to it on SoundCloud, but we recommend hearing it in the proper club setting. Luckily, the group visits Encore Beach Club at Night. (In Encore, 10 p.m., Kick off Life Is Beautiful weekend with Grills & Guitars at Foxtail. The event pairs local and celebrity chefs, grilled comfort food and a performance by Austin, Texas, rock band, Spoon. FYI: You don’t need a spoon to eat a grilled cheese sandwich, but we’d love to see you try! (In SLS, 7 p.m.,

It’s still hot enough outside to hit a pool. Take full advantage of the lingering summer season by hitting Drai’s Beach Club for a pool party. Electro house producer Sidney Samson comes all the way from Amsterdam to provide your poolside soundtrack; you oughta thank him! (In the Cromwell, 11 a.m.,

You’re probably dead tired after a full day of festival fun, but it’s no time to rest, because Fool’s Gold takes over Downtown! Commonwealth hosts an evening featuring several artists from the Brooklyn-based record label. On the bill: Atlanta house producer Treasure Fingers, self-proclaimed DJ/producer/cat Kittens and a very special guest. Who could it be? We don’t know, but we predict the person’s name will include a noun. (525 Fremont St., 10 p.m.,

“Booyah” and “Cannonball” hitmaker Showtek hits Hakkasan. The duo consisting of brothers Sjoerd and Wouter Janssen, produced a song on Carly Rae Jepsen’s latest full-length, “I Didn’t Just Come Here to Dance.” Sure, the song features her usual bubblegum pop vocals, but they’re layered above a driving house backbone. Show the two that your party itinerary includes more than just hitting the dance floor. (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m.,

Cash Cash went from playing stages on the Vans Warped Tour to some of the biggest nightclubs in the world. The trio, consisting of Jean Paul Makhlouf, Alexander Makhlouf and Samuel Frish, began playing for pop-rock band The Consequence in 2002. As they matured, they embraced their tendency to make great dance hits and abandoned their guitars for turntables. Now they’re churnin’ out melodic EDM bangers. Hit up Marquee to see how far they’ve come, and try to predict where their careers will take them next. We hope they go full circle and pick up their guitars again! (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,

Nickel F—n’ Beer Night at Beauty Bar presents a rare opportunity: You’ll see a DJ who regularly spins at festivals on the venue’s compact stage for the Low Dough Pizza Show. Crizzly and friends make a visit to give us a dose of their signature blend of dubstep, trap, crunk and other genres we can’t even wrap our heads around. He’s best known for his party bangers “Like Dat” and “Bust It Wide Open,” but he’s also given some of the hottest pop hits some twerk-friendly remixes such as Ace Hood’s “Bugatti” and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ “Thrift Shop.” We’d recommend stretching before he hits the stage. (517 Fremont St., 9 p.m., Steve Aoki makes his way to Omnia. The Miami native headlined the world’s largest pizza festival earlier this month in a mansion in Beverly Hills alongside rappers 2 Chainz and Tyga. Unfortunately, there were no reports of him “caking” his fans with pizza. See if that finally happens tonight, then dance to some of the darker, emotional tunes on his latest album, Neon Future II. (In Caesars Palace, 10 p.m.,

Head down to Henderson for an evening of fun and fundraising. Elixir Lounge hosts the second annual TEAL Fight Night—an event that includes live entertainment, a silent auction, raffles and, of course, drink specials, which will all benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Five dollars gets you a specialty cocktail, but knowing you’ve contributed to a great cause is one of those feelings the juice just can’t provide. (2920 N. Green Valley Pkwy.,
