Lady Gaga Brings Joanne to T-Mobile Arena, Zappos Hosts a Taco Throwdown

Here's where to play when the sun goes down and the night is young.

Thursday 10

DANCE: Start the weekend early (and proper) with The Coolest Party hosted by DJ Esco at Drai’s Nightclub on the rooftop of The Cromwell. 10:30 p.m., $20–$30,

And fresh off his latest collab with Cara titled “How You Gon’ Do That,” Flosstradamus is spinning at Wynn Las Vegas’ Intrigue Nightclub with DJ Konflikt nearby in the club’s Living Room.
10:30 p.m., $20–$30,

Friday 11

EXPERIENCE: So your place doesn’t have a pool? Or maybe you have a pool but no one wants to come over? Go make some new friends at the Golden Nugget Hotel’s free Coco Nugget Pool Party. There will be drink specials, so that should be good enough for you. 8 p.m.,

Or, if you want to be closer to the Strip, take in Sunset Sounds at SLS Las Vegas’ Foxtail Pool with music, cocktails and free admission. 8 p.m.,

And Lifetime Fitness Green Valley is hosting a Moonlight Swim with a DJ. Plus, your ticket includes five drinks! 8 p.m., $15–$25, 121 Carnegie St.,

HEAR: Anybody big playing tonight? Oh, no, not really, just Lady Gaga bringing her Joanne World Tour to T-Mobile Arena. She may have canceled last month’s Dive Bar Tour show in Las Vegas, but we’re almost 100 percent confident she’ll make this one. 7:30 p.m., $55–$306,

In a very smart counterprogramming move, Brooklyn Bowl is hosting heavy-metal supergroup Dead Cross. It will be very different from Gaga’s show, believe us. 8 p.m., tickets start at $26, at The Linq Promenade,

And glam rockers Steel Panther, who fall somewhere between the aforementioned acts, are returning to Mandalay Bay’s House of Blues. Get a spot up close to hear hits such as “Walk of Shame” and “Weenie Ride.” 9:30 p.m., $22–$32,

DANCE: Still have some energy after the concert? Or have you been saving it for the club? You’re in luck, because your options for the evening look good.

Calvin Harris is flying back to Las Vegas for a performance at Omnia Nightclub inside Caesars Palace. If you can’t stay up, check out the pool party calendar. 10:30 p.m., $30–$50,

If you can handle The Chainsmokers, they’ll be lighting up XS Nightclub. 10 p.m., $40–$60, inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas,

And Zedd gets the stage to himself at Hakkasan Las Vegas inside MGM Grand. 10:30 p.m., $25–$40,

Saturday 12

TASTE: Only the best taco chefs will win your love at the inaugural Hopped Taco Throwdown competition at the Backyard at Zappos in Downtown Las Vegas. Some of the city’s most popular restaurants—including Buddy V’s, Citizens Kitchen and Bar and Searsucker—will compete in three categories: Hopped Taco (best beer-infused taco), Taco Loco (most creative taco) and Taco Dulce (best dessert taco). Oh, there are also craft beer tastings. 8 p.m., $50, 400 Stewart Ave.,

EXPERIENCE: Grab your best girls for Ladies Night Bingo at Santa Fe Station Hotel. Women drink free, and if you win, that’s even better! 11 p.m.,

HEAR: Bryson Tiller brings his Set It Off tour to The Joint at Hard Rock Hotel & Casino with support from H.E.R. and frequent Vegas headliner Metro Boomin. 8 p.m., $50–$200,

Latin pop singer and Billboard Music Award winner Yuridia performs at House of Blues. 9 p.m., $38–$75, inside Mandalay Bay,

And Deep Purple and Alice Cooper are playing The Cosmopolitan. Spoiler alert: In recent shows, Alice has been performing “He’s Back (The Man Behind the Mask)” from Friday the 13th Part VI: Jason Lives. If he sings it onstage at The Chelsea, there’s no telling how much we might freak out. 6:30 p.m., tickets start at $45, 

DANCE: On tonight’s club calendar, Ant-Man costar Tip Harris—you may also know him as T.I.—returns for another show at Drai’s Nightclub. 10:30 p.m., $40-$60,

Kaskade brings the noise to Aria Resort & Casino’s Jewel Nightclub. 10:30 p.m., $20–$30,

And over at The Venetian, DJ Politik is on tap to perform for the Tao Beach crowd. 10:30 p.m., $23–$33,

Sunday 13

HEAR: Seattle indie quintet Fleet Foxes is touring in support of their latest album, Crack-Up, and you can see them at The Chelsea. 8 p.m., tickets start at $26, inside The Cosmopolitan,

DANCE: Las Vegas native Kid Conrad plays a free show at The Dorsey inside The Venetian. 9 p.m.,

And Fergie (the Irish DJ, not the Kids Incorporated star–turned–Black Eyed Peas member) is at Hakkasan Las Vegas. Again, we’re talking about the one who put out “Hurts So Good” last year, not the one who sings “Glamorous.” 10:30 p.m., $20–$30, inside MGM Grand,

Monday 14

HEAR: Catch a performance of Alice: A Steampunk Concert Fantasy at Rocks Lounge inside Red Rock Resort. It’s got music, lots of leather and an Alice in Wonderland theme. What’s not to like?

Tuesday 15

TASTE: It’s a clambake at Andiron Steak & Sea in Downtown Summerlin. The menu, from executive chef Robert Camacho, includes fried clams, lobster rolls, smoked fish dip and the aforementioned clambake. 6:30 p.m., $65,

DANCE: Catch two titans of hip-hop at Drai’s Nightclub, as 50 Cent and Snoop Dogg both take the stage atop The Cromwell. 10:30 p.m., $30–$50,

Wednesday 16

EXPERIENCE: Is magic more fun with marijuana? Find out at Puff, Pass and Poof: An Infused Beginner’s Magic Class. You get a free glass of wine with your ticket, but it’s a bring-your-own-cannabis event. 7 p.m., $39, address revealed after ticket purchase,

HEAR: It’s Ladies Night at Downtown’s Bunkhouse Saloon. Lazer Whip, KC and Penchmogli are on the bill. 9 p.m.,

DANCE: Los Angeles house duo Lost Kings want you to join them at the Encore Beach Club pool next to Surrender Nightclub for another edition of Nightswim. 10:30 p.m., $25–$35, inside Encore at Wynn Las Vegas,
