February 4th: a Beginning and an End

Wynn made official Jan. 30 what seemed to be just a matter of course after his Jan. 7 gig, confirming that Tiësto will play exclusively at XS, Surrender and Encore Beach Club in 2012. His first official date will be Feb. 4. … Speaking of Feb. 4, that’s the last night Studio 54 will be in operation, and the final-bash guest star will be Grammy-host-to-be LL Cool J. … For its second classic hip-hop performance, downtown nostalgia engine Insert Coin(s) brought in Talib Kweli on Jan. 26. Previously, De La Soul did a gig there Jan. 11. Maybe LL will stop by to do “Radio” and bring this thing full circle.
