Pauly D Announces Drai’s Beach Club Residency

DJ Pauly D has inked a two-year residency with Las Vegas’ Drai’s Beachclub, returning to its famous rooftop pool for more than 25 dates a year. He joins fellow residents Showtek and A-Trak.

“Last year, DJ Pauly D was one of the best artists we had on our roster, and we couldn’t be happier to have him back,” director of marketing Dustin Drai is quoted in a press release. “His energy and excitement on stage really took our beachclub to a whole new level. He has taken his craft from just being a DJ to being a true entertainer that people want to come see. As Pauly would say, ‘This summer is going to be a movie.'”

“Drai’s Beachclub is the ultimate Las Vegas pool party,” Pauly D is quoted. “It has a vibe like no other. I’m excited to extend my residency with them and continue to be a part of the Drai’s family. Proud to call it my Las Vegas home. Yeah buddy!”

Pauly D’s residency kicks off at Drai’s Beach Club Saturday, March 16, with dates announced through early September. Tickets are on sale now. Check the full list of announced dates below, use the Discotech app to sign up for guestlist, book tables, or buy tickets to his shows!

Kaos Nightclub at the Palms Announces Cardi B Residency

Coming to KAOS, a new day and nightclub opening at the Palms Casino Resort the first weekend in April, Cardi joins a hip-hop and EDM-heavy lineup that will have G-Eazy, Above and Beyond, Kaskade and Skrillex taking up up residencies throughout the year.

Cardi’s dates have not yet been finalized, but the Palms confirmed that the rapper will play a total of 5-6 shows over the course of the next year, beginning this spring and continuing through next winter. Tickets for the first of Cardi’s dates will go on sale in the coming weeks.

Ticket pricing will range from as low as $25 for general admission seats purchased well in advance to as high as $500 at the door, according to Palms general manager Jon Gray. Tables with full bottle service can be bought from anywhere between $2,500 to upwards of $50,000 depending on size and location.

Complete with multiple stages, the state-of-the-art performance space will hold 8,000 guests, featuring a 360 rotating stage positioned between the indoor nightclub space and outdoor rooftop space, allowing artists to simultaneously perform to both guests inside the nightclub and outside in one of several rooftop pools, bars and cabanas.

“It’s our largest venue, so that enabled us to bring a massive group of people here to enjoy the nightlife experience,” Gray said of the 100,000 square foot, $690 million project. While the “nightclub” description might lead customers to expect a cozy environment, KAOS will actually dwarf the Palms’ primary existing music space, the Pearl Concert Theater, a seated venue that hosts rock and country acts like Blink 182, Lady Antebellum and a currently running Billy Idol residency.

“Every date that the club is open will have premiere talent,” Gray said of KAOS, hinting at more acts of Cardi’s caliber to be announced in the coming weeks.

The announcement comes just weeks ahead of Cardi’s performance at the 2019 Grammys, at which the rapper is nominated for five awards including Record of the Year for “I Like It” and Best Rap Album for “Invasion of Privacy.” Earlier this month, she announced a new album coming this spring.

Drake Residency at XS Starting in 2019

Drake just guaranteed that he’ll be a big winner in Las Vegas over the next couple of years by securing millions of dollars for a residency at one of the hottest Las Vegas clubs on The Strip.

Sources close to the deal tell The Blast the “God’s Plan” singer recently agreed to a multi-year deal, with a minimum 10 show commitment at XS Nightclub inside the Wynn casino and hotel. We’re told the deal guarantees Drake more than $10 million.

Last week the hip-hop star performed at XS during the Consumers Electronics Show and hinted at the longterm deal, telling the crowd, “I’ll be back here at XS all year. You’ll have a lot of chances to see me.”

We’re told Drake was highly sought after by many clubs in Las Vegas, as it becomes the growing trend to lock down big celebrities, like J. Lo and Lady Gaga, to residency deals. After discussions with many clubs, we’re told October’s Very Own chose XS due to its high exposure and ability to consistently bring in the biggest crowds.

Which dates will Drake be playing at XS?

It’s unclear when tickets will go on sale, but it appears the official announcement is coming soon as Drake dropped a photo last week of himself performing at XS, and proclaiming, “New home.”

As soon as dates are announced they will be posted here. Check back here for updates!

Migos Announces Drai’s Las Vegas Residency

Las Vegas has been making noise in the music world in recent years thanks to an update of its entertainment model. The Strip’s resident headliners have gotten younger and more relevant, with several different pop artists proving you don’t have to be a legacy act to fill a big theater throughout the year. Gwen Stefani just debuted at Zappos Theater, and Lady Gaga will do the same at Park Theater in December.

But there’s a different type of headliner that’s being overlooked—chart-topping artists who typically don’t get categorized with their fellow Strip stars. They’re selling out a smaller but still big entertainment venue, and they’re as musically relevant as the others—quite cutting-edge, in fact. These are the residents at Drai’s Nightclub and no, they’re not DJs. They’re the biggest names in hip-hop and R&B, and they’re performing full concerts on a weekly basis.

At the moment, there’s no name bigger than Migos. Even among Drai’s stellar resident roster of rappers (Big Sean, Future, G-Eazy, Rae Sremmurd, T.I., Wiz Khalifa and newest additions Pusha T and Meek Mill), the ubiquitous Georgia trio of Offset, Takeoff and Quavo stands out. Migos didn’t just take over hip-hop with viral single “Bad and Boujee” in late 2016. As Pitchfork put it, Migos “infiltrated the mainstream without going pop; instead, pop had gone Migos.” The group reached a new level of cultural saturation in May, when Donald Glover, Kenan Thompson and Chris Redd portrayed them in a riotous Saturday Night Live sketch called “Friendos.” If you missed it, hit YouTube immediately.

In the past week alone, Migos won the Best Group Award (and performed current hit singles “Stir Fry” and “Walk It Talk It”) at the BET Awards and snagged the Vanguard Award at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Awards gala. Sprawling January album Culture II—its 24 tracks clock in around 105 minutes—has been hailed as an experimental evolution of the Migos sound, and if that isn’t enough output for you, there’s also a constant stream of guest appearances. Two of the year’s most epic hip-hop tracks contain direct Migos contributions and even more influence: Glover’s “This Is America” (as Childish Gambino) and “Apesh*t,” the lead single from Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s surprise album, Everything Is Love.

Next month, Migos will kick off a combo tour with Drake that promises to be one of the hottest music events in the country throughout the summer and fall, even though it’s a more expensive ticket ($189 vs. $178) than the Beyoncé-Jay On the Run II tour, according to a recently released TickPick list.

That demand makes Migos’ shows at Drai’s an even more significant experience. After all, isn’t the current Vegas headliner model based on the opportunity to see favorite artists who can sell out arena-sized facilities in a more intimate and exclusive environment?
