Electronic-dance and hip-hop foursome Far East Movement hosted and performed at Pure in Caesar Palace on Saturday night, arriving to hundreds of fans about 1:30 a.m. (so it was technically Sunday morning) at the Caesars hotspot.

About 2 a.m., DJ Virman took over the wheels of steel, and Kev Nish got on the mic and shouted, “It looks like Pure came to party tonight!” and started rapping along with Virman’s new tracks. Prohgress, with bottle in hand, jumped atop the railing of the main stage and started to pass out shots to revelers on the dance floor.

After the DJ set, Far East Movement kicked off their set with the hit “Like a G6.” J Splif put on his vest made of iPads and segued into “Girls on the Dance Floor.” As the performance came to an end, Prohgress began to play his keytar and asked the crowd to sing along to “Rocketeer.”

Before making their way offstage, the boys thanked the audience for their love and support, then Prohgress jumped atop the railing and into the crowd for an up-close meet-and-greet. They drank, danced and mingled with fans into the early hours of the morning. Thanks to Al Powers of Powers Imagery for his photo gallery.
