Cee Lo at 1 Oak The Grammy-winning recording artist will soon be a fixture on the Strip, when his Loberace show arrives at Planet Hollywood in August.

April 27, doors at 10:30 p.m., $40 men, $30 women.
Redfoo at Lavo The LMFAO DJ brought his signature style to Marquee with the monthly Party Rock Monday—complete with foam fingers, inflatable zebras and excessive spandex. Expect something similar from the new La Freak Fridays concept at Lavo, another Redfoo brainchild. This week’s installment is extra-special, as the afro’d one himself takes the tables to kick off the reoccurring event. April 27, doors at 10:30 p.m., $20, local ladies free.
Summer Pool Party Safari Launch at Rumor Local event company Collective Zoo launches a series of fun-filled fêtes at the boutique hotel on Saturday, with future dates at various venues throughout the city.

April 28, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
Joey Lawrence at Chateau Whoa! The actor, maybe best known for his role on Blossom, blew out 36 candles last week. But really, what’s a celebrity birthday without a Vegas celebration? Lawrence adds another candle to his cake Saturday at the Paris nightspot. Bringing the noise: DJ Bad Boy Bill. April 28, doors at 10 p.m., $30 men, $20 women.
Jessica Sutta at Krave The former Pussycat Doll recently embarked on a solo career and reached the top of Billboard’s Hot Dance chart with her “Show Me” single.

Toga Party at Artisan To-ga! To-ga! To-ga! The college party staple that was forever immortalized in National Lampoon’s Animal House is going down at the off-Strip hotel Sunday night. Put on your Ancient Rome-inspired attire and enjoy drink specials ($3 “upside down” margaritas, $5 Ketel One cocktails, Bud Lights and Shock Tops) and beats by DJ JustIN Key. Best of all? To honor the famous film—a food fight! April 29, 10 p.m., free, togas encouraged but not required for entry.
