Lina Lecaro Backin' it Up.
With Spring Break in full swing, ragers will be looking to get outta town for some debauchery the next couple weeks, and the obvious options will come to mind: Miami, Mexico and Vegas. Last week, we did a little pre-vacay pop-in to Sin City to check out the casino club scene before the frat brats descended. Even for a seasoned clubber, it was an over-the-top experience.
Spring Breakers don't go to Vegas for fancy cocktails or pretty views. Sightseeing, glitzy stage shows and gambling? That's what your mom does. No, if you're 30-ish and under, Vegas is about "the club" and the antics that go down inside: dressing up, shit-faced drunkenness, hooking up, dancing a fool, falling-down drunkeness, and hooking up.
No surprise all of this and more was seen at Party Rock, the newish night from the bigger haired half of chart-topping duo LMFAO. Red Foo spins the last Monday of the month at Marquee at the Cosmopolitan, Vegas' hippest new hotel (you've surely seen their arty commercials). Wilder, crazier and pretty much bigger in every way than anything going down in L.A. right now (raves, concerts and so called "mega-clubs" here), catching Foo and his party rock crew in Vegas was like swinging with monkeys in the jungle or pouncing with lions (in heat) in the Sahara. Untamed, giddy, vicious and meta.

When Foo -- a Los Angeles native -- boldly declared Vegas, "The best place to party in the whole world ... even better than L.A.," right before we followed him into the club, we were doubtful and even a little put off. But after rocking for a few hours amid his Technicolor-ed followers, we think he might be right. Say what you will about LMFAO's wacky image, simplistic lyrics and repetitive rhythms, the duo capture the essence of electronic music for the pop masses and clubbing's universal allure: escapism, sex, and communal audaciousness ... a promotion in Vegas is a no-brainer.
Disclaimer: One person's "off the hook!" is another's "doucheville!" If you hate loud, thumping dance music, clusterfuck crowds, slutty girls, drunk dudes and cartoony atmosphere, we get it. Just stop reading now.
If you don't, here are six reasons Vegas is the best place to party in the world for Spring Break or anytime of year, with inimitable input from the current face (and hair) of mindlessly fun dance music, Mr. Foo, himself.
