By now, you should be familiar with the insanely popular dance move called the “Dab.” Everybody from Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton to numerous news anchors across the country are partaking in the viral dance move. Supposedly, the originators of the Dab are Atlanta rap trio Migos, who are known for their machine gun flows on “Versace.” We have to wonder how Canadian EDM duo DVBBS have been affected by the term since it surged in popularity overnight. Ask DVBBS (pronounced “dubs”) how they feel about the whole Dab ordeal, and bring this thing full circle by dabbing when they drop “Tsunami” at Hakkasan. (In MGM Grand, 10:30 p.m., HakkasanLV.com.)

FRI 4

Can you believe it’s already pool season? It feels like only yesterday we were chillin’ poolside and turning up in those little party puddles. Give Marquee Dayclub a warm welcome on its opening day by checking out a set by LEMA. The Miami house spinner is no stranger to the club’s glorious pool settings and cabanas, so expect a bumpin’ set from the seasoned vet. (In the Cosmopolitan, 11 a.m., MarqueeLasVegas.com.) Stick around for a set by Italian bass bringer Benny Benassi. Most consider him a one-hit wonder since his single “Satisfaction” hit the top of the charts in 2003, but real heads know he’s been crafting some body-shakin’ EDM since then. Need some evidence? Visit his SoundCloud and peep tracks such as the progressive house swing of “Aphrodisiak” or the slow burn of “Shooting Helicopters.” Familiarize!

SAT 5

In case you haven’t heard, rugby has taken over the city. The USA Sevens Rugby tournament has chosen Las Vegas as its home through 2019. That means we’ll be able to catch some white-knuckle action on the field, and party with some top international rugby players after. Tonight, the hunks are partying at Foxtail for Ocean Sevens. Just like the names on the tournament bill, this one is stacked with a performance by reggaeton kingpin Sean Paul and sets by a handful of DJs including Fully Focus, Shinski, WaxFiend, Simple Simon and more. Who knew bringing sports teams to the city would mean more parties? Just imagine if the Raiders move in! (In SLS, 10:30 p.m., FoxtailLasVegas.com.)

SUN 6

Audien, a.k.a. Nathaniel Rathburn’s masterful blend of progressive house, trance and electro, may be the perfect tunes to jam out to on a beautiful late-winter evening, but take a chance and see how they fare during the day. The 24-year-old rocks the ones and twos at Encore Beach Club, where he’ll introduce his nocturnal remixes of Michael Jackson’s “Slave to the Rhythm” and Bastille’s “Pompeii” to the daytime. Don’t worry, he’s sure to drop his original productions as well, including the Lady Antebellum-featured “Something Better,” as well as the hardstyle-inspired banger “Elysium.” If you haven’t made a habit of it already, let 2016 be the year of taking chances and trying new things, such as clubbing during the day! (At Encore, 12 p.m., EncoreBeachClub.com.)

MON 7

Give your ears a rest from the pounding bass and synths of EDM by heading to Beauty Bar for some wild, catchy honky-tonk courtesy of Jackson Taylor & the Sinners. Sure it’s Monday, but the libations will be flowin’ at this country gig. The band’s got a “Whiskey Drinking Song,” so join them in a toast to kick off your week. The Rhyolite Sounds open. Yeehaw! (517 Fremont St., 8 p.m., TheBeautyBar.com.)

TUE 8

Here’s a little something out of the ordinary: At Omnia, you can catch Calvin Harris three times in eight days. Beyond posting “relentless updates” on SnapChat and announcing headlining slots on festivals such as Coachella and Hangout Music Fest, he’s been quiet as of late. Visit his site and you’ll find most of his “live” sets are taking place at Omnia, which must mean the Scottish sweetheart is working on some music that’ll debut further down the pipeline. Witness the second of those three performances, where he’ll be joined by Australian spinner Generik. Meanwhile, DJ Irie turns it up to 11 at Heart of Omnia. (In Caesars Palace, 10 p.m., OmniaNightclub.com.)

WED 9

Throw it back to the days of parachute pants, slap bracelets and dial-up internet at Oddfellows for ’90s Night. The “music video bar” will serve up a rotation of hits from yesteryear that are all that and a bag of chips. Expect to hear (and see!) songs by No Doubt, Oasis and other tunes from the golden nines. It’s just what the doctor ordered for you to get over that midweek slump. Forget what the memes say, this party isn’t only for ’90s kids. (150 Las Vegas Blvd. North, 8 p.m., OddfellowsVegas.com.)
