Awfully fancy clothes for the situation. You might almost say they went … (Photo by Danny Mahoney | SPYONvegas.com)
Ducking into Hakkasan tonight are Above & Beyond. If you’re lucky they’ll play some of their acoustic album. You know how DJs are always going on and on about “energy?” Gotta keep up the energy. Got to get that energy. Need more energy than a sack full of batteries. Nothing says energy like quite like twinkly piano.

Look guys, the Hulk gets really upset when people perform in greenface.
Fergie spends another night at Hakkasan not being the chick from the Black Eyed Peas. Which, all things considered, is probably a good thing for everyone. Especially if you’re not particularly into people who pee on stage. Mark Eteson opens, who we’re also assuming won’t be peeing on stage. Click for more words and pictures »
Otto only has two pop culture spirit animals: Dr. Octopus and the bus driver. (Photo by Bobby Jameidar | SPYONvegas.com)
Light features Swedish DJ/Producer Otto Knows tonight, so named because he’s he’s a huge fan of Evil Otto from Berzerk. Probably. Actually, he’s got a built-in ad campaign if he ever decides to start playing baseball and football simultaneously. Click for more words and pictures »
Mardi Gras: Where even fancy superheroes show their boobs. (Via Flickr)
Congratulations on getting through your Mardi Gras without throwing up! Now here’s what you can do tonight to ensure you’ll be spending the end of your Mardi Gras throwing up: Ghostbar is giving away $3,000 for its Mardi Gras Masquerade to the promoter who brings in the most people. And you’ll get in free for wearing a mask. Better get it in tonight before you get to the serious business of Lent, right? Hah hah, oh dear, no. Click for more words and pictures »
Really just kind of makes us nostalgic for ’80s broads.
Cash Cash, which is not, to our dismay, a Johnny Cash cover band, is at Marquee tonight. They’re just a three-guy EDM collective from Jersey. Which seems like it’s going to involve significantly less stand-up bass. Click for more words and pictures »

The ever-entertaining Diplo swings through Surrender tonight. Ladies, wear some wide receiver gloves or something. Slick ground and twerking seem like they don’t mix well. We’d hate to see someone break their neck before they can shake their booty.

George Thorogood: Awesome, or completely awesome? Regardless, he’s still wildly unlikely to be doing a Smith Center show where they have, you know, opera and ballet and decidedly not wildly mixed messages about alcoholism. Your favorite divebar’s favorite jukebox hero hits the stage at 7:30 p.m. ($35-$75) Click for more words and pictures »

Don Diablo will lead a sinfully good time at Lightbringer nightclub tonight. Your ears certainly won’t be tormented until the end of time. If you missed this one, we imagine you’d be so guilty you’d want to throw yourself into a pit of eternal sorrow where there’s no hope and no chance of escape. (He’s … he’s named after the devil.)

Reason enough to celebrate for us. (Photo by Tony Tran | SPYONvegas.com)
Bellagio’s Hyde celebrates the second anniversary of its Lost Angels industry night with DJ Konflict. That’s two years of telling exuberant locals “No, you cannot climb over this glass partition and jump into the fountains, even though it looks like you’d be able to ride up and down on it like Daffy Duck in a cartoon involving Old Faithful.” Really, security at Hyde should be commended for their patience for having to go through that whole spiel night after night.

Oh, Leya, no! Lift with your legs, not your back!
Ok, Artiasn, you’ve got our attention. The late-night staple is kicking off XXX Nights, offering you the chance to party with a porn star. In this case, it’s local Leya Falcon. Which just sounds dangerous, frankly. Click for more words and pictures »
