Are you suffering from post-festival depression? Worry not! Safe in Sound Festival, the traveling EDM event, makes a stop at The Joint. This year’s lineup is all about the bass, so we suggest bringing earplugs to coddle your speaker-seasoned ears. Self-proclaimed “veteran bass peddler” Bro Safari headlines. He recently released “Flip,” a collaborative track with Boombox Cartel that fuses the drums of trap with the abrasive melodies of electro. Let’s hope opening acts Datsik, Dirtyphonics, Terravita and Zomboy don’t blow out the speakers before we get to hear the song. Sorry, Jesse J; the bass is in our space this time. (In Hard Rock Hotel, 8 p.m.,

Friday, Oct. 2

Let’s have a round of applause for Steve Aoki. The Miami electro-house producer was voted America’s Best DJ according DJ Mag’s Top 100 last month. He beat out last year’s winner, Markus Schulz, and he’s followed by other heavy hitters such as Kaskade, Diplo and Skrillex. See him spin at Hakkasan, and give him props for this cool accolade. Tell him that he isn’t “Delirious” after all! Montreal house duo Botnek opens. (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m., Say farewell to Hard Rock’s Friday Night Live concert series—well, for the season at least. This time, Pennsylvanian rockers Live perform, and they’re bound to play some of their ’90s alternative hits such as “Lightning Crashes” and “All Over You.” Time to break out the flannel and Doc Martins! As for your pregame, hit the newly renovated Center Bar, where you can enjoy an open bar. Now’s the perfect time to check out the expanded cocktail menu and panoramic views of the casino. (At Hard Rock Hotel, 8 p.m.,



Saturday, Oct. 3

Dash Berlin hits Marquee. Since rumors that he was missing in July have been squashed, the trance heavyweight has made appearances in Argentina, Montreal and Paraguay. It’s a relief he’s still alive; after all, he’s responsible for creating the hypnotic single “Waiting,” featuring Australian singer Emma Hewitt, that’s been stuck in our heads since its 2009 release. A trance banger? Yeah, it’s possible. He played the fan-favorite, festival-ready tune at EDC in June, so let’s hope he does the same in 2016. Speaking of: Tickets for EDC Las Vegas 2016 are already on sale at Better get on that. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,

Sunday, Oct. 4

“Rack City” hitmaker Tyga performs at Drai’s. The tatted-up, Compton-born rapper released his collaborative album, Fan of a Fan: The Album with Virginia R&B singer Chris Brown in February, and it includes the incredibly catchy single “Ayo.” Since the two are both Drai’s residents, there’s a good chance they will perform the song together tonight, as well as their own material. Come on, Breezy! Prove you’re “Loyal” to the venue. (In the Cromwell, 10:30 p.m.,

Monday, Oct. 5

Are you ready for some football? Make your way to Inspire Theater for Gridiron Mondays, where you can witness the Lions and Seahawks face off. While you’re there, enjoy cocktails and bites from Park on Fremont. Touchdown! (107 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 7 p.m., It seems like we can’t go a day without hearing a Diplo-related project. He’s got the moombahton/trap of Jack Ü with Skrillex, the dancehall/reggae of Major Lazer, and he runs his record label, Mad Decent. And that’s beyond being a tastemaker, hosting a BBC radio show and collaborating with other artists. It’s amazing how much he’s accomplished since blowing up as the producer of M.I.A.’s “Paper Planes” in 2008. He’ll spend some of his precious time DJing at XS tonight. You should feel honored. (In Encore, 10 p.m.,



Tuesday, Oct. 6

Didn’t get a chance to catch Tchami’s set at Life Is Beautiful? You’re in luck. The clerical collar-wearing producer hits Omnia tonight to give us another dose of his signature melodic future-house goodness. See if he drops his collaboration with AC Slater and Kaleem Taylor, “Missing You”; it’s a boomin’ deep-house tune that features some added soul courtesy of Taylor. It’s the perfect hymn for Sunday mass, which comes early this week. And if you’re not the religious type, you can check out DJ Five at Heart of Omnia. (In Caesars Palace, 10:30 p.m.,

Wednesday, Oct. 7

Female-fronted indie pop invades The Sayers Club courtesy of The Mynabirds! The band is spearheaded by singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Laura Burhenn, who has lent her talents to huge names in the indie world including the Postal Service and Bright Eyes. This time she’s front and center, and you can hear her wide variety of influences on the band’s latest effort, Lovers Know. We hope to hear the candy-coated keys of “All My Heart”! (In SLS, 9 p.m.,
