Sky Blu of LMFAO. DJ set. Friday, November 15, 11 p.m., LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com. Tickets cost $40-$75 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. "In a world where shots rule the night, a couple of people bond together to save the evening... the Salud Gang." While Reek Rude, Sensato, and Wilmer Valderrama will likely be too busy saving the night one shot at a time, we're pretty sure Sky Blu will take us "pa'rriba, pa' bajo, pal centro, pa' dentro."
Borgore. Friday, November 15, 11 p.m., Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-8411; mansionmiami.com. Tickets cost $25 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Alright, so maybe icons do eventually die. But if you're Israeli dubstepper Borgore, you "won't waste a minute, [you] won't waste a second," you'll do what you want so you could die a legend.
Calvin Harris. With Menas. Saturday, November 16, 11 p.m., LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami; 305-674-4680; livnightclub.com. Tickets are sold out. Visit wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Calvin Harris may be the world's richest DJ, but the bright-eyed EDM master "needs your love." Maybe that's why "he's too afraid of [his] heart to let you go" and wants you to "Feel So Close" to him at LIV.
