Visionquest Presents Super Pleasures. With Matthew Dear, Ryan Crosson, Lee Curtiss, Shaun Reeves, Alexi Delano, and DJ Three. 11 p.m. Friday, March 21, at Treehouse, 323 23rd St., Miami Beach; 305-614-4478; treehousemiami.com. Tickets cost $25 to $40 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Party week in Miami is a lot like the traditional rite of passage that involves wandering into the wilderness and then depriving oneself of essentials like food and sleep. So why not begin your journey into the clubs with Visionquest, the Detroit-based dance music crew that parties every day in the spirit of the search, the pursuit, the new discovery?

Behrouz's Do Not Sit on the Furniture Showcase. 10 p.m. Friday, March 21, at Do Not Sit on the Furniture, 423 16th St., Miami Beach; 305-450-3809; facebook.com/DoNotSit. Tickets via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Out-of-towners (and even most locals) have yet to set foot inside Do Not Sit on the Furniture, the new South Beach club from Miami-via-San Francisco DJ-producer Behrouz and Electric Pickle co-owner Will Renuart. It's a cozy underground joint with, according to Mr. B and Will, a strict "no bullshit" policy. Go get a tour from the Do Not Sit dudes themselves. And leave the bratty-club-kid crap at home.

Cedric Gervais. With Deniz Koyu and Cid. 11 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com. Tickets cost $40 to $90 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. It's been a big year for Monsieur Cedric Gervais. Originally from France, he's been DJing South Beach clubs ever since crashing onto these subtropical shores as a teenager in '98. So when Cedric snatched up the Best Remixed Recording (Non-Classical) Grammy for his version of Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness," all Miami party people embraced it as a much-deserved win for a hometown garçon. We plan to give him a congratulatory hug in the DJ booth — if, you know, we can convince the bouncers that Cedric and us go way, way, way back.

Nick Curly Presents Trust Miami. With Matt Tolfrey, Subb-an, Kevin Saunderson, Shaun Reeves, Jozif, Bloody Mary, Nitin, and others. 10 p.m. Wednesday, March 26, at the Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-456-5613; electricpicklemiami.com. Tickets cost $15 to $20 plus fees via residentadvisor.net. Have faith in Nick Curly. Dude has basically never put on a boring club bash. And recently, the 8bit Records boss even stepped up his event-planning game with Trust, an international series of carefully curated nights. Now, along with pals such as Leftroom label head Matt Tolfrey and techno legend Kevin Saunderson, Nick is about to pop into Miami's Electric Pickle with the hope of lending further credence to their claims of integrity and effectiveness in the realm of the party arts.

Remembrance Festival. With Bingo Players, Dada Life, and others. 10 p.m. Thursday, March 27, at Ice Palace Studios, 1400 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Tickets cost $53 plus fees via wantickets.com. A portion of proceeds will benefit the late Paul Baümer's preferred charity, KWF Kankerbestrijding (Dutch Cancer Society), as well the American Cancer Society. Ages 21 and up. Not every trip to the nightclub needs to be a rager. Sometimes, it's better to take a few hours and "celebrate the memory of those who have passed," as the organizers of the Remembrance Festival fundraiser say, "and the life we thankfully still have." This particular moment of rare clubby contemplativeness has been organized in honor of the late Paul Baümer, one-half of the DJ-production duo Bingo Players, who succumbed to cancer at the end of last year. But it is also dedicated to (and will benefit) many other people "dealing with cancer on a daily basis."

#Decade. Presented by Size Records. 4 p.m. Thursday, March 27, at RC Cola Plant, 550 NW 24th St., Miami. Tickets cost $30 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 18 and up. When Steve Angello and his Swedish House Mafia bros dissolved their supersuccessful big-room EDM partnership, perhaps you thought the Size Records founder would abandon his and SHM's tradition of staging outlandish one-night parties in unlikely locales. (We refer mainly to those three Masquerade Motel bashes in three years, which took place under an enormous tent in midtown Miami, on the sands of South Beach, and even amid the urban wilds of Grand Central Park.) But yes, Angello returns again. And this time, he's set to "make history" by throwing the first rave at Wynwood's long-vacant RC Cola Plant. Party of the #Decade. Obviously.

Jamie Jones Presents Paradise Miami. With Seth Troxler, Guy Gerber, Lee Foss, Eats Everything, Dyed Soundorom, and others. 10 p.m. to 10 a.m. Thursday, March 27, at Ice Palace Studios, 1400 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Tickets cost $50 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Who knew Eden looked a helluva lot like downtown Miami? Well, Hot Creations label head Jamie Jones seems to have spotted the resemblance straight away. And now for the second consecutive year, he'll bring his traveling Paradise party to the concrete gardens of North Miami Avenue. There will be lots of DJs. No apples or snakes.
