Robin Thicke at 1 Oak Notice the last name? The R&B singer-songwriter’s dad is Alan Thicke, known by many as Jason Seaver of Growing Pains. But that’s hardly his only claim to fame—Thicke has written, produced and collaborated with some of today’s biggest names (Lil Wayne, Jennifer Hudson and 50 Cent, to name a few). He performs at the Mirage nightspot Friday. April 13, doors at 10 p.m., $40 men, $30 women.
Wineucopia at The M Resort Cheese pairs well with vino, but so does rock. More than 70 wines from over 35 wineries will be available to sip and savor at the Rock ’n Roll wine event Saturday, complemented by live music from Better than Ezra, Antonio Beliveau of Crash Kings and local rockers Play for Keeps and Offset Season. And if you’re still going strong after that eighth pinot, an afterparty is planned at the hotel’s Hostile Grape wine bar. April 14, 7 p.m., $45.
Edward Maya at Rain The Romanian producer collaborated with EDM recording artist Vika Jigulina for his “Stereo Love” track and climbed the charts across the globe. Chances are you’ve heard it on the dancefloor, and you just might catch it again Saturday at the Palms nightclub where Maya will take over the tables and perform live. April 14, doors at 10 p.m., $30, local ladies free.
Melissa Molinaro at Krave Molinaro knows the word “almost” quite well—she competed in Making the Band 3 and The Search for the Next Doll, barely missing out on spots in girl groups Danity Kane and the Pussycat Dolls, respectively. Since then, Molinaro has landed appearances on big and small screens (remember that Kim K. look-alike in the Old Navy ad?) and recorded a number of pop singles. She takes the stage at the Strip-side gay club Saturday night. April 14, doors at 10:30 p.m., $20, locals free before 12:30 a.m.
AFAN’s AIDS Walk Afterparty at Marquee The Cosmo club presents a night of philanthropic partying, partnering with local nonprofit Aid for AIDS of Nevada. Every partygoer who wears red or shows a completion sticker from the organization’s Sunday walk receives free entry and an open bar from 10 to 11 p.m. Marquee will also donate $5 for each patron dressed in red at the post-walk party. April 16, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women, locals free.
Chris Willis at Hyde The lakeside Bellagio nightclub gives you another reason to party at its Lost Angels Insiders’ Night bash, as the EDM recording artist takes the stage for a live performance. DJs Jace One and Daniel D also supply their sound. April 17, doors at 10 p.m., $30.
Flashdancer at Pure A whole lot of booty shaking is going down at Caesars Palace Tuesday night, when Pure presents a go-go competition worth a cool $10K. “How can she shake it that fast?” If you’ve ever seen a great go-go, you’ve probably uttered these words—but chances are you’ll be left speechless at this special edition of Pure’s industry night bash. April 17, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women, industry professionals free.
