12 Things To Do in Las Vegas This Weekend After Dark

It’s 80s Night at Brooklyn Bowl, Wayne Brady is back in Vegas and rapper Bryce Vine takes over House of Blues

There’s something in the air this week, and it’s not Omicron. It’s a playoff feeling, one that we’ve come to expect in late spring when the Knights go on their run, but this one came earlier. The Raiders don’t take the field until Sunday and they’re not playing at home, BUT something in the air makes us want to party like it’s already Super Bowl weekend. 

If you’ve got that feeling, the next three nights of After Dark are for you.    

FRIDAY, JANUARY 14

HEAR: It’s gonna get the good kind of rowdy when Mustard Plug, Buck O Nine, and Omnigone arrive for the “In Defense of Ska Tour” arrives at Backstage Bar and Billiards on Fremont Street. 8 p.m., $17-$20, backstagebarlv.com

It’s 80s Night at Brooklyn Bowl, with DJ C01 set to deliver a time capsule full of Reagan-era tunes. 8 p.m., FREE with RSVP, brooklynbowl.com
