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 »

NdgT 4 Eva.

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 »

Stoopid1

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 »

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 »

MonroeValentino
The chest piece: A convenient target of blame for why you’re staring at a woman’s boobs.

It’s Monday, easily the Monday-iest day of the week. But seeing as how porn stars tend to alleviate early week humdrum, Artisan’s XXX Nights would seem to be well-placed. And tonight they’re placing Monroe Valentino at the center of that party. She has Marilyn Monroe tattooed on one thigh, obviously. She’d better have Rudy on the other.

EnglishBeat
To be fair, this could also be a Mighty Mighty Bosstones concert.

Hard Rock Live is slicing off a big ol’ hunk of ’80s tonight (8 p.m., $10) with ska revivalists The English Beat, of “Mirror in the Bathroom” and “Save it for Later” fame. We’re not sure which wave of ska that’s supposed to be, because keeping track of ska categories is only slightly more tedious than parsing metal subgenres. And we like metal.

Prepare yourself for a glum DJ.

Sandro Silvia–who’s either a DJ or an archvillain in an Italian knock-off Bond movie–is spinning at Light tonight. He’s a Dutchman, though. Which means he’s going to spend the night sullenly staring at his mixer while he replays the Netherland’s thrilling-esque 0-0 loss to Argentina on penalty kicks in his mind. Sure, it’s trite to point out hockey would keep playing through 0-0 periods until one team scored an actual goal or dropped dead, but it’s trite because it’s true.

DaveFogg
For the purposes of tonight, Thunderdome will be played by Hyde Bellagio.

Tonight at Hyde, it’s Dave Fogg on the decks, in case you were looking for an excuse to go out on a Tuesday. Or, more specifically, he’s your excuse for why you have a crippling hangover on a Wednesday. Unless you’re one of those people that thinks it’s gauche to be hung over before a Thursday. But you probably have a hard time reading this without adjusting your monocle. Click for more words and pictures »

Yngwie
Ladies.

Do you like pure, uncut shredding without a hint of rhythm or melody? Well, kids who used to buy Guitar Player magazine in the ’80s, you are in luck. The Guitar Gods tour lands in the House of Blues tonight (7 p.m., $27.50) with former G’n'R guitarist Bumblefoot, Gary Hoey, Uli Jon Roth, and the spiritual child of Joe Satriani, Yngwie Malmsteen. Which is Swedish for “Classically trained shredding does not equal good songwriting.” Click for more words and pictures »

Dukes
Here they are, clearly never meanin’ no harm.

Haze is doing a Dukes of Hazzard-themed jam tonight, the Dukes of HAZEard. Because what on God’s green Earth could be a more American way to start Fourth of July weekend? Nothin’. That’s what. They’ve got the Crazy Daisies, which is great. But can it top an in-her-prime Catherine Bach? Maybe. Best of luck. We’re skeptical, but it could be done. (It probably can’t be done.)
