HEALTH Rocks Bunkhouse, Bad Religion Fills The Foundry

From clubs to concerts, what to do after dark.

Thursday 20

Get a jump on weekend shenanigans by blowing your ears out with a set by Los Angeles noise rockers HEALTH. While that may sound counterproductive, the trio has been cranking out abrasive, poppy tunes that have won the hearts and ears of thousands since 2007, so we urge you to get a taste. Songs such as “New Coke” and “Die Slow” showcase the band’s ability to craft dance-y pop bangers, with a brash, abrasive underbelly. Beyond the rockin’ tunes, the trio is also known for its hilarious Twitter account. Follow @_HEALTH_ and you’ll get amusing secondhand accounts from one of the biggest bands in indie rock. Don’t believe us? Here’s a sample: “You know it’s a long flight when you land with zits you didn’t have at takeoff.” Take a note from the funny, noisy band at Bunkhouse.

Friday 21

Welcome the weekend by catching a classic punk band at The Foundry. Bad Religion hits the North Strip to give you a dose of its L.A. attitude via loud, feedback-riddled, four-chord anthems and catchy choruses. The sextet has been rocking rooms around the world for nearly 40 years, and they’ve crafted some of the most memorable tunes such as “Infected,” “21st Century (Digital Boy)” and “Sorrow.” Even if you don’t recognize those song titles, you’ve definitely seen the band’s logo: It’s a bold black cross with a red “NO” symbol loudly plastered over it. The logo epitomizes the band, as well as its punk-rock mentality. Florida heatseekers Against Me! open. (In SLS, 6:30 p.m., FoundryLV.com.)

Saturday 22

When it comes to releasing music, Steve Angello has been laying low lately, but for good reason. Beyond performing at festivals in Jakarta and Ibiza, the former Swedish House Mafia member has been spending time at home, working on new tunes and breaking mental sweats by reading inspirational books. Scroll through his Facebook feed and you’ll notice that the “Knas” hitmaker is fond of posting arty black-and-white photos of what he’s doing at the moment. They consist of pages from those books, macro images of his keyboard, live shots from previous engagements or peeks at new merchandise. While we applaud Angello for getting some good R&R—he toured the world for several years, after all—we can’t help but think that he’s got cabin fever. Luckily he’ll step out of the house when he mans the decks at Omnia. OB-One tackles Heart of Omnia. (In Caesars Palace, 10:30 p.m., OmniaNightclub.com.)

Sunday 23

Cap off the weekend by catching hometown hero Dizzy Wright, who brings his laid-back raps and easygoing vibe to Brooklyn Bowl. The weed-loving hippie returns for a proper gig in the middle of his Still Movin tour, and we couldn’t be more excited. Here’s the reason: In “East Side,” from his recently released The 702 EP, Wright makes references to dozens of Las Vegas streets and landmarks he used to frequent. We’re hoping he takes a mini tour of the locations he mentions while he’s in town before he takes the stage. Maybe we can catch a glimpse of The Growing Process rapper in the wild. If not, at least we can all look forward to turning up to “Floyd Money Mayweather.” (In the Linq, 7 p.m., Vegas.BrooklynBowl.com.)

Monday 24

Prepare yourself for a double dose of DJs over two days. It’s been more than a month since Andrew Rayel rocked the buzzworthy Electric Zoo festival in New York, and he’s still raving and recovering. The Moldovan DJ/producer flooded his social media accounts with photos of himself spinning at the main stage for weeks after the event. The trance titan revealed in an interview with The Nocturnal Times that he’s wrapping up songs for a forthcoming album, so those photos will definitely come in handy for promotional work. Be captivated by the trance vibes in his latest single, “Epiphany,” then hear it at Marquee. Perhaps he’ll even give you a peek of what’s to come. (In the Cosmopolitan, 10:30 p.m., MarqueeLasVegas.com.)

Tuesday 25

Venture to Vanguard Lounge for some much-needed variety. Studio V is a weekly event hosted by DJ Sucio and DJ Exile that consists of an open-format extravaganza. Don’t be surprised if you hear the two fuse a Carnage banger with the latest Tyga hit. In fact, expect it. (516 Fremont St., 10 p.m., VanguardLV.com.)

Wednesday 26

Halloween is just around the corner, so get ready to welcome the spookiness with DJ Mustard. The Los Angeles producer has crafted some of the most memorable hits for artists such as YG, Ty Dolla $ign, Tinashe and Travis Scott, but he recently ran into a roadblock with Omarion for allegedly stealing parts of Chris Brown’s songs. One song in question is the star-studded “Post to Be,” which BMG Rights Management reportedly claims blatantly infringes on Brown’s “Came to Do.” Take a listen to both songs, and you may notice that while there are similarities, they are ultimately different in subject matter and melodies. We’re not sure how this is going to turn out, but a little celebration never hurt anybody. See if Mustard comes dressed as a giant bottle of the condiment at Light. (In Mandalay Bay, 10:30 p.m., TheLightVegas.com.)
