At Hakkasan, you can witness a hip-hop icon team up with one of the hottest DJs in the game. Rev Run and DJ Ruckus switch off on the ones and twos tonight, and given the fact that both are tastemakers, you should expect an eclectic set. We hope to hear modern tunes, such as Future and Drake’s “Big Rings” mixed in with timeless rap classics along the lines of Kurtis Blow’s “The Breaks”! (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m.,

At the other end of the music spectrum, you can catch EDM sweethearts Krewella pull a DJ tag team with British trance producer Mark Eteson at Omnia. This one should be a little more accessible for the fans of the untz. Given that the Krewella sisters sing, we’re already thinking about a future collaboration from the trio. Perhaps they will give us a preview tonight—or even better, riff on their current jams. We hope Krewella will take vocal duties on Mark Eteson’s bumpin’ reimagining of Imogen Heap’s “Canvas.” Meanwhile, Turbulent causes … turbulence in Heart of Omnia. Sorry—had to do it. (In Caesars Palace, 10 p.m., If you prefer to focus your energy on one singer rather than two, hit up Drai’s for a performance by R&B singer Ciara. The 29-year-old “Goodies” hitmaker paired the release of her latest album Jackie with a steamy relationship with Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. With Ciara’s album sales dwindling, and the Seahawks struggling, hopefully the power couple trend can help both out. But for now, at least we can “One, Two Step” to her hits including “Body Party” and “Like A Boy!” (In the Cromwell, 10:30 p.m.,

Remember when “Scary Mon­sters and Nice Sprites” came out in 2010? The EP turned ex-From First to Last member Sonny Moore—a.k.a. Skril­lex—from emo kid to world-famous producer. The release garnered two Grammys and received overwhelmingly positive reviews from critics. Five years later, Moore has gone on to produce songs for artists including mega­star Justin Bieber, rapper Vic Mensa and nu-metal band Korn. See how far he’s come when he blows the speakers up at XS. (In Encore, 10 p.m.,

The group efforts continue at The Sayers Club with a performance by Minneapolis hip-hop collective/record label Doomtree. The group is comprised of seven members—most notably rapper and multi-instrumentalist P.O.S. and female rapper/singer/spoken-word artist Dessa. See the septet come together to create a musical mixture full of clever wordplay and good vibes. Jacksonville, Florida, rapper Astronautalis opens. (In SLS, 10 p.m.,

Did you catch Porter Robinson’s stunning live performance at Life Is Beautiful? The Atlanta producer closed out the first day of the festival with a set that sounded just as good as it looked. The bright, anime-inspired visuals were the perfect complement to the lush, mellow soundscapes of songs, such as “Polygon Dust” and “Sad Machine.” Hopefully we get both tonight when Robinson mans the decks at Marquee. He won’t be playing keys or triggering drums, but at least we can enjoy some stunning visuals via the club’s screens. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10 p.m.,

The only thing we like more than alliteration and good music is delicious tacos. Thanks to Techno Taco Tuesday at Tacos & Beer, we can indulge in all three. DJs serve up the techno tunes while the chefs get cookin’. And you can also indulge in a wide selection of craft beers. It’s probably the only place where you can pair Gessaffelstein’s abrasive techno with savory carne asada tacos and fresh CraftHaus’ brews. With a party like this, it’s fair to call Tuesday the new Friday! (3900 Paradise Rd., 9:30 p.m.,

Make your Hump Day memorable by hitting up a party at a venue with one of the city’s most memorable views. Enter Infamous Wednesday at Hyde. Tonight, Los Angeles’ DJ Skratchy works the decks. The SKAM Artist is known for his eclectic mixes, where he seamlessly transitions between the hottest EDM hits to the latest hip-hop bangers. Get ready to get wild at this midweek party; they don’t call it Infamous Wednesday for nothin’. (In Bellagio, 10:30 p.m.,
