Untz at Beauty Bar EDC is over, its groove-tastic Neon Garden stage has since been dismantled, but you’re still craving the deep and dirty beats. Beauty Bar, which has been slaying Downtown with a variety of underground sounds of late, is throwing the appropriately named Untz on Friday with two of our best house/techno DJs: BadBeat and Edgar Reyes. Now that you’ve danced all night on a racetrack, how about breaking it down in a hair salon? June 27, doors at 9 p.m., free.
Open Container at Container Park Movie buff? Dig beer? Motley Brews launches a new tasting series Friday night with you in mind. Sip on seasonal cider and beer selections and explore the Downtown development while classic movie clips and film shorts play in the background. June 27, 8:30 p.m., $20.
Kennedy Jones at Marquee Dayclub Two weeks ago, Marquee began branding its Saturday afternoon pool parties not headlined by Kaskade as Wonderland, a collaboration with EDC promoter Insomniac Events that continues the tradition from last summer’s Wet Wonderland parties.

Fabolous at Tao The rapper is set to release a new album sometime this year, but the first two tracks—star-studded collabos with Chris Brown and 2 Chainz—have already hit the airwaves.

Rewind at Backstage Bar & Billiards Will two hours of live Kraftwerk make up for all the years it avoided Las Vegas? Nicht! Thankfully, DJs Style and Grendel will use their New Wave-themed Rewind night to pay homage to the German quartet, as well as the synth-pop artists it helped inspire, such as Gary Numan, Depeche Mode, New Order and those two guys who made “Sex Dwarf.” And really, is there a better Downtown hang to hear “Sex Dwarf” than Triple B? June 28, 11:30 p.m., free.
Soul Clap & Dance-Off at Brooklyn Bowl Vegas nightlife loves imports, so it was only a matter of time before we saw a dance party with NYC cred from the Linq’s version of Williamsburg-based Brooklyn Bowl. DJ Jonathan Toubin and his New York Night Train “party machine” add a little rock and soul to EDM-ruled clubland, so head down to the new venue for an alternative night out. Did we mention the $100 prize? June 30, 9 p.m., free.

Breathe Carolina at Hyde The electro-pop group might be best known for 2011 megahit “Blackout,” but try to avoid doing just that when it gets behind the DJ booth during the Bellagio nightspot’s Lost Angels industry bash. July 1, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
