Dance music Gollum Skrillex is taking up the old familiar post at XS tonight. He’ll be “spinning his hits” and “making the crowd move” and “searching for his precious.” Is it in your pocketses? Oh, how he hates partiers. Hates thems forever, he does. Click for more words and pictures »
If only he had gone to Kim Kardashian’s wedding, Kanye could’ve taught him what those knobs do.
Not to say that portents of doom continue to pile up over the whole DJ thing, but Brody Jenner is doing it too. Because he has a fantastic track record of impeccable taste.
Jenner made his Las Vegas debut behind the wheels at Hyde on Friday night with girlfriend Kaitlynn Carter. He did drop “Niggas in Paris,” so maybe that’s the first step on a long road of reconciliation for the two. Kanye’s probably sweating it pretty bad. Click for more words and pictures »

Chef Kerry Simon has a picture of him with Bill Murray, both dressed in Elvis jumpsuits. This photo is now in a display case at the Hard Rock Hotel as it goddamn should be.
The Hard Rock dedicated a case to Simon, who despite battling Multiple System Atrophy recently opened the Carson Kitchen Downtown. On hand were the Hard Rock’s memorabilia curator Warwick Stone and exec Don Marradino.
The case also has a bust of Simon, a set of his knives, and a picture of him with Bianca Jagger–but once you’ve got “matching Elvis suits with Bill Murray” isn’t everything else basically superfluous? Click for more words and pictures »

Jurassic Five, the world’s most successful hip-hop group that is disappointingly not made of dinosaurs, brings it back to the early aughts tonight with Dilated Peoples at the Cosmo’s Boulevard Pool (8 p.m., $23). Sure, that’s great. “What’s Golden” is awesome. But are they going to drop any Epic Rap Battle? Click for more words and pictures »
Well certainly nothing about this seems like booze was involved. (Photos by Jeff Bottari)
Scott Disick took getting kicked out of Kourtney Kardashian’s place a little rough. To the point of alcohol poisoning at 1 Oak. (The 1 Oak in Southhampton, not the one here. Pictures would have been way better here.) Disick was apparently so lit up he thought he’d been drugged. We can relate. We’ve been so hammered we thought we were doing drugs with Scott Disick. Imagine our relief when we realized it was just alcohol poisoning.

Woman who could definitely whip your ass Rhonda Rousey said she could beat Floyd Mayweather in an MMA-style street fight. Mayweather’s response?
Mayweather on Rousey: He “didn’t know who he is.”
Well that just got awkward. Dana White said Rousey wins that fight, because of course he did. But really the silver lining in all this is that if Mayweather doesn’t even know Rousey is a she, it seems unlikely that they ever have children together that would one day enslave the rest of us sad, weak little people. It would be some Conan-level shit. Ronda Mayweather Jr. would for real crush her enemies, see them driven before her and hear the lamentations of their women. Click for more words and pictures »
Summer concerts at the pool: A tradition indulged in so often in Las Vegas that they occasionally have to include reggae shows, too. SoCal’s favorite reggae-influenced mish-mash Slightly Stoopid teams up with Stephen Marley tonight at the Cosmo’s Boulevard Pool (8 p.m., $29.50). But what else are you going to do? There isn’t a baseball game for another two days. Sit home and watch WNBA? Click for more words and pictures »

We thought this was a plot reserved strictly for sitcom grocery stores, but Ka held a celebration for its seven millionth guest last night–complete with balloon drop and confetti. Jason Pierce and his group of five from Kailua, Hawaii, got to head backstage and meet the cast in order to, we assume, make awkward conversation like, “That part with the flips was great,” and “This is all lovely, but we have dinner reservations. Can we go now?”
Our favorite person in dance music, Fatboy Slim, continues to do things to remain our favorite person in dance music.
He’s already on record as hating Dutch DJs and not being a fan of pneumatic tits, but now he told Simon Cowell to fuck off when he wanted to launch a “DJ Idol” type show, but he also distilled the essence of what makes the evolution of any subgenre perfect:
“That’s the good thing about dance music; it grows organically through drunk people late at night coming up with stupid ideas. It’s not something that can be scripted or transported into a TV studio.”
Never stop being cantankerous, Fatboy Slim. Click for more words and pictures »
Pirate Santa wants you to have a mARRRRRy Christmas. (Photo by Bobby Jameidar | SPYONvegas.com)
The best part about July? What? Fireworks? A little on-the-nose, don’t you think? No, it’s those brave souls who put on fur and velvet for Christmas in July parties, even though it’s a thousand and dickety six degrees out. Like Clinton Sparks is doing for Santa’s Circus at 1 Oak tonight. Guess you should’ve thought about cleaning up your naughty act before Thanksgiving this year. Click for more words and pictures »
