Then indulge in a sin-themed soiree in Marquee’s Boom Box Room hosted by Whitney Mixter and Sada Bettencourt of Showtime’s The Real L Word.

    DJ Photog Rukes Puts the Lens on the Booth

    Drew Ressler, who is known by the moniker Rukes, is arguably the most accomplished electronic-dance-music photographer in the game. He’s snapped everyone from Avicii to Zedd, and his work is regularly featured in Rolling Stone, Forbes, Vanity Fair and various other publications.

    Cat Got His Tweet

    By Jason Scavone

    Here’s the thing that makes Deadmau5, if not compelling to non-EDM fans, at the very least interesting: He came up with the greatest marketing hook any DJ ever had by putting on that mouse head, but he doesn’t show any indication of wanting to play the same self-promotion game that chipper, relentlessly positive DJs normally do.

    Be True to Your Roots: Jay Farber, Deadmau5 and the Cake Boss Keeps it Old-School

    By Jason Scavone

    All of Eddie Murphy’s early movies revolve around one loose theme: Guys in situations where they turn their back on their roots—either by circumstance or deliberately for some larger purpose.

  • Hakkasan Spreads Opening DJ Love Over Three Weekends

    By Melinda Sheckells

    Caesars Doing Bill’s Over as Gansevoort

    By Jason Scavone

    Once renovations are done on the hotel formerly known as Bill’s Gamblin’ Hall & Saloon early in 2014, Caesars Entertainment confirms it will begin its new life as Gansevoort Las Vegas. Which is Dutch for “Why the hell are there so many vowels in that word?”

    Wynn Shuffles DJ Lineup; Hakkasan Builds Its Stable

    By Jason Scavone

    Just as fall gives way to winter and Christmas to New Year’s Eve, we find ourselves in a new season, with all its attendant glittering lights and mysterious traditions: residency season. With 2012 in the books, clubs are starting to come out with their 2013 DJ rosters, and no place dropped a turntable bomb quite like the Wynn/Encore clubs, which announced a staggering 42 residents for the year. Of course, if you’re not overwhelmed by sheer numbers, what jumps out just as much as who’s on the list as is who’s not.

  • DJ-Pocalypse Now

    By David Morris

    There has been a fair bit of speculation about DJ migrations next year as Hakkasan at the MGM and Light at Mandaly Bay come online. The official announcement was set for the Grammy Awards, where two of Hakkasan's new residents are in talks to perform -- but where's the fun in waiting until February?

    Wynn May Be Losing DJ Hold

    By Jason Scavone

    The Wynn nightclubs have had something like 80 percent of the world’s DJ population on lockdown through 2012, leading to such widespread, unforeseen changes in the nightlife ecosystem as overgrazing, soil erosion and remix depletion.

    Vegas hearts the iHeart Radio fest

    By Jason Scavone

    The iHeart Radio festival brought a slew of big, name-brand musicians to town (and, for some reason, Kathy Griffin). With that many people hitting the stage, it takes a special kind of performance to really grab the headlines. A performance like, say, dropping 758 F-bombs (estimated), calling out Justin Bieber and storming off stage. So, well played, Billie Joe Armstrong. After the Green Day front man’s freakout Sept. 22, he scored himself a trip to rehab.

    Not in this Mau5’s house

    By Jason Scavone

    Madonna’s desperate grabs to relate to youth culture have blasted well beyond the threshold of “embarrassing” and now occupy the rare atmosphere of “flop sweat given aural form.” While Avicii was spinning at the Ultra Music Fest on March 25 in Miami, Madonna, in arm-socks like she was Britney Spears circa 2001, queried the crowd, “How many of you have seen Molly?” It was only the second least-subtle reference she was making to the drug—she was also sporting a top with the name of her new album (sigh): MDNA.
