The Cataracs at Club Nikki Probably best known for their hit song with Dev and Far East Movement, “Like a G6,” the electro-hop duo is also behind the Dev favorite “Bass Down Low” and a few other club collabo tracks. They take the stage at the Tropicana nightclub on Friday. August 19, doors at 10:30 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
Teacher’s Pet Party at Posh The end of August means the beginning of the school year, and Posh is celebrating with a fun-filled fête for all, student or not. Ladies receive free champagne all night and are encouraged to wear seductive schoolgirl outfits, as Holly’s World and Absinthe star Angel Porrino will judge Bad Teacher and Naughty Schoolgirl competitions. August 19, doors at 11 p.m., $30 non-local men, $20 local men, ladies free.
Yelawolf at Jet In a city seemingly saturated with electronic dance music, Jet is bringing you something different this weekend. Following a recent stint on the Warped Tour, hip-hop artist Yelawolf takes the mic at the Mirage Friday. August 19, doors at 10:30 p.m., $30.
Wolfgang Gartner at Surrender If you went to EDC this June, you probably already know that the electro and house DJ is one of the very few acts that took the stage twice throughout the EDM extravaganza—and for good reason. Take in his Friday appearance at the Encore nightspot. August 19, doors at 10:30 p.m., $40 men, $30 women.
Snooki at LAX/Wet Republic The Jersey Shore cast member is back from Italy and doing what she does best: Party! The 4-foot-9 guidette spends the day fist-pumping at Wet Republic, then heads to the Luxor to host an evening at LAX. That’s an entire day of boozing for the small, bronzed celeb—uh, how do you say “hot mess” in Italian? Wet Republic: August 20, doors at 11 a.m., $50 men, $20 women. LAX: August 20, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.

Janice Dickinson at Krave The self-described, first-ever “supermodel” hosts the gay club’s Pandemonium event on Saturday. Joining the America’s Next Top Model judge and performing live is American Idol finalist David Hernandez. And the pandemonium doesn’t end there, as an Andrew Christian fashion show completes the multifaceted extravaganza. August 20, doors at 10:30 p.m., $20, locals free before 12:30 a.m.
Love Hangover Party at Artisan Work on your moon tan while you party poolside at the boutique hotel’s afterhours bash. Santana’s Andy Vargas presents a Saturday night full of L.U.S.T. (Love, Unity, Sweat by way of Turntables)—also known as the “love hangover.” That Sunday morning headache? That’s just a regular hangover. August 21, 10 p.m., free admission.
