Weather so nice it demands headbanging. (Photo by Danny Mahoney | SPYONvegas.com)
It’s way too nice to stay indoors tonight. Fortunately, Surrender already thought of that, what with the convenient open-air-club-attached-to-the-pool thing they have going on. Tommy Trash will be providing the beats as you kick back with a cocktail and breathe in all that nature. And the girls cavorting poolside. Those help too. Click for more words and pictures »
Rock star protip: Ditch the tea kettle in the background, replace with Jack Daniel’s.
Brooklyn Bowl goes exotic tonight with Omara “Bombino” Moctar, the Nigerian guitarist who’s an advocate for Tuareg concerns. Look, Bombino, as a country we just started getting a handle on what’s going on with Ukraine, and you expect us jump on board with a situation where one party both has no country and shares a name with a Volkswagon? Still, he got Dan Auerbach’s attention with his Santana/Hendrix-ish vibe. So that’s gotta count for something. (9 p.m.) Click for more words and pictures »
Surprised Diplo is surprised. (Photo by Danny Mahoney | SPYONvegas.com)
We were beginning to worry that Diplo’s tweet game might be slipping because of a steep drop-off in volume. Then he went and Instagrammed this picture and all is pretty much forgiven. Tonight is Mad Decent Monday at XS tonight, which means it’s time for a round of round of What’s Diplo Tweeting Today?

And if you don’t find the golden egg, there are still bunnies. Win-win. (Photo by Joe Fury | SPYONvegas.com)
Let’s celebrate Easter the way the church intended: Worshipping a golden idol and surrounded by girls in skimpy bunny outfits. Haze tonight does the Hunt for the Golden Egg, where the lucky snooper can haul in raw omelet fixins worth up to $5,000 in cash and prizes. Which you’re going to blow on plastic grass and Cadbury Creme Eggs, because the spirit of Easter can’t be contained. Click for more words and pictures »
DJ Snake. Probably.
Now that they’re even using “Turn Down for What” in movie trailers, there’s a pretty good chance you’ve heard it roughly 9,837 times in the last three months. But still, if you need to hear it a 9,838th, DJ Snake is at Surrender this evening. Maybe you’ll get lucky and Lil Jon will show up for a live mix featuring exciting new, unexpected yelling.

Sure. Sure she’s not a vampire.
Lorde kicks off the first of two nights at the Cosmo’s Boulevard Pool with Lo-Fang (8 p.m., $40). But tonight’s the night you want to go, because tomorrow’s show is already sold out. Unless you were going to go loiter on the sidewalk at the base of the pool and stare up at the video marquee, we guess. Then it’s really a toss-up depending on your schedule, which, if that’s your plan, we’re guessing isn’t that busy. Click for more words and pictures »
Look, we were told there would be nudity. Well? We’re waiting.
New Zealand’s favorite sons when Flight of the Conchords aren’t touring, The Naked and the Famous, are at Brooklyn Bowl tonight along with White Lies and The 1975 (7:30 p.m., $40). We got really excited that a band would dedicate themselves entirely to playing one single Smashing Pumpkins song in a variety of styles, until we remembered the song is called “1979.” Oh well. Time to go start our own band, The Bullet With Butterfly Wingses. Click for more words and pictures »
Hipster chanteuse Lana Del Rey brings her Williamsburg Warble to the Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea tonight (8 p.m., $35). Just so long as Lorne Michaels isn’t there, she should be fine. And if you miss her, we’re pretty sure you can purchase your own Lana Del Rey off Etsy later on. Click for more words and pictures »
No one should look that sad with a balloon.
Bonobo is at Brooklyn Bowl tonight (8 p.m., $25). The musician, not the chimp. At least we think it’s the musician. How great would it be if it was the chimp? Chimp bowling! Tell us you wouldn’t go every week to see chimp bowling. Hang on, we’ve got to go draw up a business plan. And also rob a monkey cage. Click for more words and pictures »
Johnny Depp as Tonto: The Musical
Aussie dance-weirdos Empire of the Sun bring their Daft Punk-meets-Muse schtick to the Cosmopolitan’s Chelsea tonight (8 p.m., $35). It’s like someone told Tenacious D to go imagine up outfits for a dance act, and this would be their way of making fun of them before writing another song about the awe-inspiring majesty of Dio.
