Get ready for the out-of-towners.

Chicago-based SKAM artist DJ Jerzy will be appearing for the second night in a row at Addiction Nightclub. And Denver-based electronic dance music (EDM) DJ and Producer Mateusz will be lighting up Vice Nightclub. Choosing between the two is a difficult choice, so make plans to stop by both.

Take it down a notch.

L.A. street-wear and lifestyle brand The Hundreds will be hosting its Hawaii release party at Addiction Nightclub. Dj Micah Banks will be hosting this party featuring music by local DJs XL and Compose. 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., 1775 Ala Moana Blvd.

Or get away from Waikiki and stop by Bar35 for its 80s Pop Muzik DJ Competition, which sounds like a party that will attract a fun crowd. $5, 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. 35 N. Hotel St., Chinatown.

What do you want to wear: swimwear or club-wear?

M Nightclub and Local Motion are throwing a Surf Into Summer afterparty at M Nightclub with a summer swimwear fashion show by Issa De’ Mar and $6 Patron specials.

Wear your beachwear and get in free. 10 p.m. to 4 a.m, 500 Ala Moana Blvd.

More commonly spotted in Hollywood and Las Vegas, SKAM artist DJ Skratchy will be stopping in Honolulu for the night at Addiction Nightclub, with hosts Blaise and Flash’s #ME2 event. 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., 1775 Ala Moana Blvd.

The Modern Honolulu Elements Day Club pool party at the Sunset Pool will feature local DJs spinning Top 40 EDM and Hip-hop and a San Lorenzo bikini fashion show.

On Memorial Day, you can cool off with a pool party:

The Bacardi Pineapple Party is happening at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel and bound to sell out, so get there early. And if you want $6 valet parking, get there really really early. There will be lots of DJs: Nocturnal Sound Krew DJs Compose, SSSolution and Jami, and guest DJs Graves and Dee Wizard. VIP cabanas are already sold out. 12 to 6 p.m, $20 per person, 150 Kapahulu Ave., Waikiki.
