See Double With Nervo at Omnia

Your week in parties




What do you think Three Six Mafia member Juicy J received for Christmas? We can think of a few things: a throwback Pau Gasol Grizzlies jersey, some “bandz,” and maybe a few trophy wipes to shine the Academy Award the Memphis, Tennessee-born rapper won for his contributions to the Hustle & Flow soundtrack. But enough about receiving; what about giving? J recently hinted at a possible collaboration album with the “jiggy” one himself, A$AP Rocky. If it’s anywhere nearly as good as the pair’s collab “Multiply,” we’re excited. See J at Tao, and see if he’ll flash his new gifts or give us some new material for the New Year.

By now, you should be familiar with all of the DJ Khaled-isms floating around on the Internet. Since creating a Snapchat account in September, the “We the Best” creator has remained in the spotlight thanks to his outrageous one-liners, hilarious banter and glimpses of his lavish lifestyle. One of Khaled’s well-known ad-libs is “another one,” which makes us feel as if he stole it from Ludacris who said the same thing in his 2004 radio smash, “Get Back.” We may never find out who used the line first, but you can see Luda at Drai’s. And don’t worry if you have to pass on this event; he’s bound to give us another one soon! (In the Cromwell, 10:30 p.m.,




Say happy birthday to a local boy gone big! 3LAU (a.k.a. Justin David Blau) celebrates 25 years by spinning at one of the city’s largest venues, Hakkasan. Blau got his start with piano, guitar and singing as a child. At 13, he moved to Las Vegas and chilled out until he visited Sweden, where he discovered electronic dance music. Blau was enamored, and subsequently produced mash-ups, remixes and eventually, originals. Now he’s spinning at a world-renowned nightclub. Get nostalgic and check out a photo of him before you hit the club; you’d be surprised to see how much he’s grown. It’s not often that birthdays fall on weekends, so make the most of this party.

SUN 10

End your week on a high note with a set by DJ Jimmy Lite. The open-format DJ hailing from South Florida spends his time juggling residencies at three venues including Hyde and Gold Diggers, but tonight he’ll take his talents 63 floors up to Foundation Room. Like Drake and Riley Curry say, we think this party will go “wayyy up!” (In Mandalay Bay, 10 p.m.,

You know, sometimes that #NewYearNewMe mindset is a little off-putting. There are so many things—trends, photographs, music—that can transcend time and leave lasting impacts on culture as a whole. Take Diplo (a.k.a. Thomas Wesley Pentz), for example. Since getting his first taste of producing music in Miami, Pentz has merged genres such as electro, house, trap, trip-hop and more into a rich, musical gumbo. Take a listen to any of his projects, including Major Lazer and Jack Ü, or the hundreds of pop artists he’s worked with, and you’ll see how he blurs the lines between genres. And he’s a tastemaker, too: The 37-year-old also spearheads his wildly successful Mad Decent record label. Celebrate another year with the DJ/producer at XS’ first Mad Decent Monday of the year. (In Encore, 10 p.m.,

TUE 12

Want to see double? Hit up Omnia, where you can watch progressive house sisters Nervo do their thing. The Australian duo are recovering from their two-month Collateral World Tour in which they hit countries such as Chile, Greece and the Philippines, and they still somehow managed to find the time to drop a mix for Apple’s Beats 1 radio show and a few remixes. Give ’em props when they drop “Bulletproof,” and if you want to stop seeing double, you can hit up Heart of Omnia for a set by open-format master DJ Five.

WED 13

You’ve seen them on billboards and advertisements, but if you just can’t get enough of those Fantasy ladies, head to LAX, where you can actually party with those ladies for Fantasy Wednesdays. It’s one of the rare times when fantasy becomes reality. (In Luxor, 10:30 p.m.,
