Pauly D, Pool Parties and Paris

The Hard Rock took away the Palms’ pet guido. Pauly D signed on for an exclusive residency on the property. His first gig will be at Vanity on Feb. 18, and he’ll spin for the Rehab opener April 22. …Speaking of pools, the Tropicana has finished de-Nikkifying the property, and will call the former Beach spot SPF. To go with RPM. They can save a ton on signage if they’d really commit and start going by TRP. It’s working for LVH. … When Tiësto officially launched his residency Feb. 4 at XS, he was joined onstage by his fellow countryman Afrojack’s new girl, Paris Hilton. Her new phase as EDM attention-whore continues in full swing. The Dutch must be unfailingly polite to not want her out of the way while they’re working. We’d love to see what happened if she jumped in the booth when a DJ from Philly was spinning. Mostly because we enjoy watching people get pelted with batteries.

DJ Profile

Avatars, Keytars and Recycling

By Liz Ohanesian

French DJ Joachim Garraud wears the mighty Space Invader avatar like a coat of arms. You can see the vintage video-game character emblazoned on the T-shirts that he wears inside nightclubs, on his live visuals and CD covers and even on the headphones and sunglasses available in his online shop. Garraud’s fascination with the 8-bit creature goes back to his early career. When Garraud began DJing, at the dawn of the rave movement, he didn’t want to use a photo of himself. Instead, he looked for a symbol that could represent him.
