Steve Aoki resurrected the legendary 2000's-era Hollywood underground party "Dim Mak Tuesdays" for one night only on November 30. The globetrotting producer celebrated his 39th birthday and the 20th anniversary of Dim Mak, the powerhouse label he started while at UCSB.
An L.A. fixture where acts like Justice and Lady Gaga played before they made it big, the resurrected party that ruled Cinespace on Tuesday nights for years came back at the Echoplex for one night only. Zedd joined the ringmaster in the booth.

2 Chainz and Tara Reid hit the revived "Dim Mak" scene, alongside Aoki pals like Too Short, Mickey Avalon, the women from Krewella and Kid Ink.
The cake-tosser-in-chief throws frosting at every show, so when there were actual cake-worthy milestones to celebrate...

...you know it was going to end up everywhere.
Just like old times, this scene's own Andy Warhol (The Cobra Snake, left) was back in action on both sides of the lens: snapping some of the pictures you've just clicked through and serving as best man to his longtime pal.
Over at Power106's holiday show at the Forum on Friday night, YG brought on G-Eazy for his slow burning hit "F--k Donald Trump." The clip has racked up 13.4 million views on YouTube since he released it back in May.
At the more PG-rated KISS FM Jingle Ball at the Staples Center at the same time, nothing says squeaky-clean pop more than Britney Spears and Ryan Seacrest, the flagship personality for iHeartRadio.
Backstage, Diplo stepped in radio personality JoJo's selfie.
While at another incarnation of the Jingle Ball in San Jose, the Chainsmokers continue to round out their big year -- Coachella, headlining residency at Hakkasan, multiple number 1 hits, etc. -- by performing "Don't Let Me Down" with Daya.
Girls only! Kate Upton and Erin Foster chilled out at Vince Camuto's exclusive girls-only dance party at Ashlee Margolis' The A-List office on Tuesday night.
Foster co-hosted the event with pals Nathalie Love, Kelly Oxford, and Sasha Spielberg. Alana and Este Haim (who sometimes DJ themselves) as well as Harley Quinn Smith, Selma Blair, Michelle Trachtenberg, Busy Philips, and Emily Ratajkowski joined in the hush-hush pre-holiday hangout.
"There's nothing like selling out your own headline show," Paige Duddy of buzzy brother-sister duo XYLO told the crowd at their milestone performance at the Troubadour on Saturday night, December 3. "I'm shaking right now." They played current hit "Setting Fires" (produced by The Chainsmokers) 15 minutes in to their set.
As their hit (21 million streams on Youtube in the last 3 weeks) and career shoots up, it's a family affair for the family from Westlake Village. Their dad (pictured here) watched from the balcony where their grandfather had a front row seat. Another family member told TheWrap that they're slated for Coachella 2017.

The night after, Linkin Park took the same stage, but not to sing hits like "In the End" or "Numb." Instead, the International Medical Corps honored the rockers. "Insecure's" Jay Ellis (who plays Issa Rae's boyfriend Lawrence) was in the crowd.

Up in Santa Barbara, Don Cheadle honored Warren Beatty with the Kirk Douglas Award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival Thursday night. "They just called me and said you have to present to some old guy," Cheadle joked on the carpet. The two worked together on the political farce "Bulworth" back in 1998. On the current political situation in the U.S., Cheadle said "I'd rather have Bulworth."
