There are a few big DJ-producers who perform at clubs that aren’t located in The Cosmopolitan, Wynn or Encore.
Over at The Mirage, 1 Oak nightclub on Tuesday hosts the return of Major Lazer, a collaborative project put together by DJ Diplo, to play dance hall-reggae electro house. The last time the trio gigged 1 Oak, they were made up of Diplo, Jillionaire and MC Walshy Fire.
Or, if you’re looking for an old-school DJ who has been around forever, Skribble spins Saturday at Chateau.
What we mean by old-school: Skribble goes way back to his days with MTV’s “The Grind,” “Total Request Live” and spring break gigs.
