Lil Jon Takes Us to Shot Class, Fergie DJ Hits Hakkasan

Fergie DJ

Thursday, Oct. 8

Begin your weekend early with Fergie DJ. Although his name is very similar to that of the “Fergalicious” and “Clumsy” hitmaker, this Fergie’s blend of house and techno is a world away. The DJ from Northern Ireland showcases his talents via a weekly podcast called Arcadia. Listen to the catalog and you’ll find that he goes beyond house and techno, and touches on trance and hardstyle. However, we suggest listening to his eclectic mix of tunes in the proper nightclub setting, such as Hakkasan. (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m.,

Future/progressive house producer Joe Maz spins at Hyde. Last month, Maz witnessed performances by some of the biggest names in EDM, including Alesso. He was so inspired he tweeted, “Surround yourself with like-minded people.” See if his trip across the pond also had a profound effect on his mixing skills. We think his intense electro-house remix of Major Lazer’s “Lean On” might replace the original as the anthem of the summer. Hear it tonight. (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m., If you prefer guitars over turntables, head to Brooklyn Bowl for a performance by Kentucky rock band My Morning Jacket. Since forming in 1998, the band has released nine albums and 11 EPs. Among the dozens of songs are the neo-psychedelic “I’m Amazed” and the alternative rock anthem “Big Decisions.” Hear a few of them tonight. C’mon, it’s nice to get away from EDM every once in a while. (At the Linq 8 p.m.,

Celebrate great music and even better booze at Las Vegas Village for Wine Amplified! The event actually started yesterday with Panic! At the Disco and Passion Pit sharing headlining spots, but we think tonight’s lineup is even better. Catch Sublime With Rome and 50 Cent. Not enough for you? Fiddy’s bringing his G-Unit crew with him. Talk about #SquadGoals! (3901 Las Vegas Blvd. South, 5 p.m., In an interview with Miami New Times, Gareth Emery says the VIP section of the club can be a DJ’s worst enemy. He explains that the party is “split between the dance on the dance floor and the VIP tables, which aren’t always the biggest music fans, so you’ve got two crowds to keep happy.” We think his trance tribute to Game of Thrones, “Kings & Queens” is enough to satisfy both of Foxtail’s crowds.

Are you familiar with the aptly named Los Angeles DJ trio TREO? According to the group’s Instagram bio, they’re “just a few surfers who love making tunes.” Listen to their brand of progressive house and you’ll notice a few things that reflect the ambience of a beautiful summer day at the beach, with tranquil vocals and gentle buildups that are easy on the drops. You can ride the TREO wave when the trio hits Marquee Dayclub. Surf’s up, dude! (In the Cosmopolitan, 11 a.m.,

Head to any Valley Nacho Daddy location to enjoy the Monday Night Football trifecta: the game, booze and food. Enjoy $5 Jim Beam and Absolut cocktails and $2 PBR to accompany new menu items such as the borracho chili or pork tenderloin barbacoa. Unfortunately, the only pigskin you’ll be able to enjoy will be on the big screen when the Steelers and Chargers toss it around. Go team! (Multiple locations,

Sultan + Shepard team-up to conquer Omnia. The progressive house pair from Canada recently dropped their collaboration with singer Kreesha Turner, “Bring Me Back.” It’s a mellow house tune that puts her soft, angelic vocals on the forefront. The two are bound to play it tonight. Read more about the pair at (In Caesars Palace, 10:30 p.m.,

Sharpen your pencils and gather your scantrons: Class is in session at Surrender. Tonight, your professor is hip-hop hypeman-turned-DJ Lil Jon. The Atlanta native’s residency is titled Shot Class, and it promises to “provide a lesson in partying.” No syllabus could be found online at press time, but we think some of the subjects on Jon’s lesson plan include Twerkanomics and Turnin’ Up. Canadian DJ/producer Grandtheft opens. This might be the only time staying out late gets you extra credit. (In Encore, 10:30 p.m.,
