Right on the heels of their Kelis performance, Richbaby has got in another big international name: Grammy award winning British electronic house trio Dirty Vegas and there’s no cover charge for the night! In other party news, I Love Shanghai’s turns 6 and is doing so with a toga party while Bar Rouge is turning seventies on us tonight.

And if that’s still not enough, head over to our calendar for more.
