Drai’s 25th Anniversary

Drai’s Commemorates Incredible 25-Year Anniversary with a VIP Celebration and All-Night Party

Opened in 1997, Victor Drai’s iconic nightclub changed the Las Vegas landscape by introducing nightlife to the Las Vegas Strip

The iconic Drai’s Las Vegas, founded by legendary nightlife innovator Victor Drai, celebrated its remarkable 25-year anniversary on Saturday, Oct. 15 at its original Las Vegas location at Drai’s After Hours. Hosted by Drai and his son, Dustin Drai, who currently serves as vice president of entertainment at Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub and is also his father’s business partner for Drai’s After Hours, the VIP event was a celebration of Drai’s past, present and future with a guest list that included current and former employees, executives and performers, reuniting to share fond memories, photos and stories of the historic club.

The evening’s formal presentation was highlighted by an official proclamation presented to Drai by Clark County Commissioners Tick Segerblom and William McCurdy II, symbolizing Drai’s standing as a one-of-a-kind Las Vegas hallmark, as well as a special video message from Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman.

With a nod to what he calls the “Drai’s family” both past and present, Dustin Drai stated, “Yes, we’re celebrating 25 years of Drai’s Las Vegas, but what we’re really celebrating is 25 years of being a part of Las Vegas nightlife and how my father has created not only jobs for the people that have worked here, but the nightlife industry overall which has provided livelihoods and careers to thousands and thousands of people who may or may not have come to Las Vegas without him coming here.”

Victor and Dustin were honored with a specially crafted 25-year anniversary cake before mingling and partying the night away at Drai’s After Hours, where guests including Wiz Khalifa, who headlined a Drai’s LIVE concert at Drai’s Nightclub earlier in the night, enjoyed an electric party that featured the return of many of Drai’s original house DJ’s who brought the night’s vibe back to the club’s early roots of house music.

Founder and visionary Victor Drai brought Drai’s, his uber-popular Los Angeles restaurant, to Las Vegas in 1997. By 1999, Drai’s had become Las Vegas’ in-demand hotspot for after-hours, with a line of people clamoring to get in from late at night through the early morning. In 2014, Drai expanded his nightlife footprint to the 11thstory rooftop of the hotel with the introduction of Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub, a palatial 65,000-square-foot club, as part of the property’s rebrand to The Cromwell, a swanky boutique hotel. Drai’s After Hours remains in its original location in the basement of the property – where the walls are still awash in Drai’s signature red with Victor’s legendary art collection hanging from the walls. 

Victor’s son, Dustin Drai, now ensures the continued success of his father’s vision by overseeing Drai’s After Hours and bringing epic full-length performances by A-list artists to the Drai’s Beachclub • Nightclub stage as part of the Drai’s LIVE series.

The Drai’s celebration weekend kicked off with a bang on Friday, Oct. 14, when music superstar Chris Brown attended the high energy concert by Grammy-nominated singer, Fabolous, at Drai’s Nightclub.

Over the past 25 years, Drai’s has hosted countless superstars and icons including Quincy Jones, Timbaland, Rihanna, Paris Hilton, Kourtney Kardashian, Nicki Minaj, Kevin Hart, Rick Ross, 50 Cent and more who have performed or partied at Drai’s in both Los Angeles and Las Vegas. There have been several exclusive events at Drai’s including E! Network’s Oscar Viewing and After Party in 2010, Jones and Chris Brown’s “Thriller” Night in 2015, and the Billboard Music Awards After Party in 2016. 

Drai’s is the only nightclub in Las Vegas that offers full-length concerts by today’s top-charting artists. Every weekend, the Drai’s LIVE concert series brings big names like Chris Brown, 2 Chainz, Lil Baby and TIP to the rooftop of The Cromwell, with banner performances set to the stunning backdrop of the lights of the Las Vegas Strip. Drai’s Nightclub is open from 10 p.m. – 4 a.m. Friday – Saturday throughout the month. Drai’s Nightclub will be open on Sunday, Oct. 30 for a special Halloween weekend celebration.

Gen-Z Fashion

The Essence for Y2K Fashion

By Andrea Esteban

Let’s face it : Old-fashioned ‘90s are back again — and yes, that involves all of those Y2K fashion trends you’ve probably hidden in the back of your wardrobe. Today, I’ll share all you need to know about Y2K fashion trends, and how Y2K fashion icons can inspire you to dress like a Gen-Z nowadays. 

Here are my top tips to what is fashionable at the moment:

  • Where did the Y2K fashion trend come from?

​Y2K fashion boomed across the mid-late 1990s and early 2000s. It doesn’t only refer to fashion, but it also refers to the technology and computer bug that people thought would happen on New Year’s day in 2000.

Y2K culture was marked by luxurious consumerism. Gen-Z were always trying to look for the most expensive monograms and designer brands including on clothing, accessories or perfumes that reflected the idea of ‘being contemporary’. Brands like Channel, Prada, Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Dior were the most coveted.

We can’t forget that Y2K Culture was also shaped by streetwear trends including: designers’ logos, bling, D-rings, exposed zippers, belts, straps in line with the idea of the up to date technology.

  • What is Y2K Fashion?

​Aesthetics and trends typically worn between the late ‘90s and the year 2000. What are the first items that come to your mind when you think about those years? Of course you can’t help remembering the crop tops, the velour tracksuits, the camis, the sparkly shoes or the low-rise jeans, all in the shiny black tone and reflective metallic color palette.

Casual clothing and leisurewear were also big fashion trends of the early 2000s. Denim became a significant staple for Gen-Z, going beyond skirts to jeans, hats and jackets. If you want to design a casual Y2K style , keep in mind that the denim staple is worn with all kinds of clothes including hoodies, crop tops & off the shoulder tops, ribbed sweaters with trainers, platform sandals, sneakers or boots.

  • How Can you get the Y2K Look nowadays? Get inspired!

Many of Y2K fashion inspiration can be taken from the pop culture icons of our early childhood involving celebrities, films and even video clips. Bratz Dolls, Mean Girls, Uptown Girls and Clueless are great fashion examples of inspiration for the Y2K appearance since these main characters loved over-dressing, with eye-catching colors.

One  of the essential features of Y2K fashion were accessories. Think of several of the typical staples from your wardrobe. Pieces like tiny sunglasses, mini-bags, bandanas or scrunchies clips are tendences now. Also, one key feature were rhinestones which are used as decorations for accessories like chokers, belts or hats

Finally, early ’00s makeup tendencies walked by ‘Euphoria’ smokey eyes, highlighting, colored eyeliner, glittery eyeshadow, false eyelashes, glossy lips, skinny brows and matte foundations. There’s no disagreeing that our current looks have been deeply induced by ’00s beauty icons like Tyra Banks, Paris Hilton, Laura Harrier, Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera and Halle Berry. For you to get some inspiration when doing your make-up, I have gathered together the 5 most powerful and influential makeup trends worn by celebrities of the early 2000s in events like MTV Awards, Grammys, Brit Awards or even at the Oscars.

Coi continues to prove her prowess on stage, evolving into one of the culture’s hottest performers and most explosive entertainers. She just wrapped up the sold out Back Outside Tour, supporting Lil Baby and Lil Durk.

Meanwhile, she left the crowd and critics stunned at Rolling Loud NYC. HotNewHipHop raved, “If there’s anything her Rolling Loud set proved this weekend, it’s that she’s unquestionably got the full package” and called it “one of the fun-filled sets of Day 3.

It arrives in the wake of her recent banger “At The Top” [feat. Kodak Black & Mustard]. To date, it has racked up over 4.2 million streams and earned widespread praise. UPROXX highlighted “variety of flows from the lilting melody of the hook to a Playboi Carti-esque, clipped cadence at the beginning of her verse,” and The Source assured “Coi Leray is keeping her hot streak going.” HotNewHipHop put it best, “she’s only concerned with things that will help her ‘elevate,’ and she’s stuck to her word.” Not to mention, she stands out among this year’s coveted XXL “Freshman Class.”

In 2021, she served up “Bout Me.” Receiving critical acclaim, Complex praised her integration of “of pop and hip-hop worlds, with her oscillating between staccato raps and warbling, auto-tuned vocals,” and Hip Hop Weekly noted she “keeps the hits coming.”

It followed closely on the heels of the blockbuster music video for “BIG PURR (Prrd)” which recently earned RIAA Gold Certification.  Right out of the gate, it racked up 1.7 million views in less than a week. HipHopDX raved, “One of 2021’s hottest collaborations has an even hotter video to match its Billboard-blazing hype,” and UPROXX put it best, “Coi Leray’s 2021 is off to a fantastic start.” It’s already amassed over 40 million total streams and counting.

Since its release, “BIG PURR (Prrd)” has spawned 660K-plus videos on TikTok with nearly 50 million views. The song has also charted on the Billboard Hot 100 and Rolling Stone Top 100 songs charts, where it continues to climb.

It’s Raining Men – A Promising Young Woman Edition

DeathbyRomy’s take on “It’s Raining Men” – the iconic No. 1 dance anthem originally released by The Weather Girls in 1982 – is out today. Listen HERE. Paul Jabara and Paul Shaffer wrote the song, which was nominated for a  GRAMMY®. “It’s Raining Men” is one of two songs that DeathbyRomy recorded exclusively for the Promising Young Woman: Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. Variety has already predicted an Oscar nomination for Best Original Song for “Come and Play with Me,” the Los Angeles-based artist’s other contribution to the soundtrack. Twenty-year-old singer/songwriter DeathbyRomy pours both pain and euphoria into her catchy yet dark music, pitting electronic melodies and propulsive beats against hypnotic vocals and deeply personal lyrics. She made her Capitol Records debut last fall with the EP Love u – to Death.

Focus Features will release the Sundance hit Promising Young Woman on Christmas Day, Friday, December 25, 2020 in theaters domestically. IndieWire noted, “The film is filled with inspired soundtrack choices – a strings-heavy take on Britney Spears’ ‘Toxic’ teases before it reveals itself at the perfect moment, and an amusing use of an ‘It’s Raining Men’ cover sells Fennell’s pitch-black sense of humor early on.” Idolator said, “As for the soundtrack, there’s so much to love.”

Those who pre-order the 18-track collection in digital format will instantly receive “It’s Raining Men” plus Donna Missal’s interpretation of Cigarettes After Sex’s 2012 breakthrough single,  “Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby,” and Cyn’s “Drinks.”

Cyn’s original song “Drinks” has amassed over 20 million global streams. Billie Eilish added it to her Apple Music radio show, “me & dad radio.” Naming “Drinks” a “Song You Need To Know,” Rolling Stone hailed it as “insanely catchy.” The Mixed Drinks Collection” features the stripped version of “Drinks” and remixes from quartet of renowned producers, all female – MNDR, NERVO, Uffie, and Ladyhawke. uDiscoverMusic said, “[Donna Missal’s] silky vocals stand out against the moody, synth-driven production [on ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’].”

The film’s director and writer, Emerald Fennell, also served as Executive Soundtrack Producer, teaming up with music supervisor Sue Jacobs and Capitol Records to create what The Daily Beast describes as “a pop music soundtrack that could only be described as glorious.” Vice observed, “[Promising Young Woman] expertly uses femme pop songs to underscore its critically acclaimed twisted tale of trauma and revenge.” Billboard praised Anthony Willis’ “chilling orchestral arrangement of ‘Toxic,’” which can be heard in the film’s new trailer. View HERE.

The soundtrack also features previously unreleased tracks from Muna and Blessus plus Carmen DeLeon’s cover of the Gerry Goffin-Carole King penned “He Hit Me (And It Felt Like A Kiss”). Charli XCX’s “Boys,” Paris Hilton’s “Stars Are Blind,” Sky Ferreira’s “Downhill Lullaby” and Juice Newton’s “Angel of the Morning” are among the previously released tracks that Fennell employs to subvert the audience’s expectations over the course of the film. Other featured artists include Maya B and Lily & Madeleine.

Synopsis

From visionary director Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman… until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future.  But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night.  Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.

Premiering to huge acclaim in Sundance earlier this year, PROMISING YOUNG WOMAN is directed and written by Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) and stars Academy Award®-nominee Carey Mulligan and Bo Burnham along with an ensemble cast that includes Laverne Cox, Alison Brie, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Max Greenfield, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chris Lowell, Sam Richardson, Molly Shannon, and Clancy Brown.  Fennell produced along with Margot Robbie, Tom Ackerley, and Josey McNamara for LuckyChap Entertainment and Ben Browning and Ashley Fox for FilmNation Entertainment.

About ONCH:

Los Angeles-based Onch is the creative force behind the “ONCH” brand (previously known as Onch Movement), designing ‘wearable art’ for a discerning VIP client list that includes Kate Moss, Kim Kardashian, and Nicki Minaj, who famously rocked her Onch Rainbow Ice Cream Cone Necklace to accept the VMA for Best Rapper of the Year, and introduced the Pink Fried Chicken Wing Necklace at the iHeart Radio concert.

Onch’s career originally kicked off back when supermodel Moss was spotted out and about wearing his Bloody Razor Blade Necklace in L.A., before the designer was even old enough to buy booze legally. Following that illustrious intro, the fresh-faced fashion phenomenon was asked to provide the accessories for Heatherette’s LA Fashion Week show. He subsequently launched his long-term relationship with cult favorite Hello Kitty, which culminated in his recent role as designer for the brand’s first collection at Forever21, The Hello Kitty Forever jewelry collection. Hasbro, the global play and entertainment company, has also enlisted the edgy designer to bring some of their most beloved brands to life, choosing him for their very first jewelry collaborations for Mr. Potato Head and My Little Pony, not to mention asking Onch to create a 30 inch, not-so ‘Little Pony,’ currently touring the world at different toy conventions.

The trend-setter whose work was even featured in a bio-technology textbook and Italian Vogue has also made headlines for his more daring and unique designs, from his “Meat-Lace” meat necklace which was featured by the New York Post, Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, In Touch Magazine, and Ripley’s Believe It or Not. In 2015, ONCH brand launched successful collaborations with DreamWorks Animation, Sanrio, Pokemon and Delias. As the featured artist for the 2016 LA Pride parade, West Hollywood’s annual LGBTQ+ pride event, Onch created the giant “LA PRIDE Building BLOCKS” art installation which was one of the most “Instagrammable” moments of the event. In Fall of 2016, Ford Motor Company asked ONCH to design a tiny home, dubbed a “Fungalow,” to help promote the launch of their new Ford Ecosport. In the Spring/Summer of 2019, six pieces featuring ONCH designs were on display at the Metropolitan Museum of Art (NY) for the exhibition CAMP: Notes on fashion.

As festival-goers grapple with a growing virtual festival landscape, Electric Blockaloo stands out with a colossal international lineup curated by Rave Family, and consisting of the biggest names in electronic music and beyond. Newly announced artists include Steve Aoki with DIM MAK’s Dojo, rising London star and BBC Radio1 host Sherelle, and Detroit household names such as Carl Craig, Kevin Saunderson and Seth Troxler.

To ensure that rights holders are paid for the use of their music in the festival, Electric Blockaloo has partnered with streaming platform Mixcloud.

Rave Family CEO Jackie McGuire explains, “One of the biggest challenges for digital festivals is making sure that artists are compensated for the use of their music. We knew that in order to create a sustainable digital music event platform, we had to take care of that. With their advanced content ID system and unique music licenses, Mixcloud has been a great partner and we are excited to be leading the movement to pay artists fairly.”

Upon entering the festival, attendees or “Loozers”, are given free range of the grounds, with the ability to jump from stage to stage at their own pace, using replicas of the famed blue Doctor Who Tardis. Over 65 stages have been carefully curated and envisioned directly by the artists and labels themselves. From Red Blocks, a take on the famed Colorado amphitheater, to Thunder Mifflin, the coolest office in Scranton, PA, there will be plenty of familiar locations for Loozers to explore.

Artists have had full creative control of their stage designs, from Sacha Robotti’s SlothAcid stage, Steve Aoki’s blood sport Dim Mak Dojo, KSHMR’s Dharma Temple, Claptone’s Masquerade Stage, Maceo Plex’s Blade Runner inspired Ellum, a Higher Ground Space Station and Claude VonStroke’s Dirtybird Campout and Bass Lodge, which features nostalgic activities and games.

To further immerse attendees in the digital music festival experience, Electric Blockaloo attendees will also be brought together via Discord, an online chat platform where Loozers can communicate and meet up with friends and new avatars they meet in the game.

Electric Blockaloo will be available on both java and Bedrock versions of Minecraft, so fans can play on desktop or mobile. For music fans unfamiliar with Minecraft, the Rave Family Training Camp will be available to ticket holders in the run up to the festival where users can learn how to navigate, use special items, and even swim!

Living at the intersection of music and technology, Rave Family is a production company founded in 2018 by tech and investment veteran, Jackie McGuire. With roots in promoting harm reduction at live music events, Rave Family has always been committed to supporting its community and the causes near to its members hearts, and will continue this initiative for Electric Blockaloo.

The festival has partnered with various organizations that festival-goers can donate to and support while purchasing their ticket or during the game itself. Beneficiaries include Black Lives Matter, The Bail Project, a national fund aimed at preventing incarceration and combating racial and economic disparities in the bail system, and ByeBye Plastic, a movement to remove single use plastics from the music industry as a whole by 2025. Electric Blockaloo will donate 5% of its profits to each of these organizations.

A partnership with HeadCount, a platform that harnesses the power of live music to stage voter registration drives, will also allow ticket buyers to register to vote during checkout. Tickets for Electric Blockaloo will be available to purchase through individual artist and stage links.
