Rok, no longer around the clok

Contrary to what Apollo 440 claimed in 1999, you can, in fact, stop the Rok. We’ll give you a minute while you grudgingly go to YouTube to look up 13-year-old, lesser-known big-beat singles.

Back with us? Fantastic. The Angel Management Group-operated New York-New York club, which launched in August 2008 to Katy Perry-graced grand-opening hoopla, will be ending its run come April 1. In its stead, the space will be used as a live-music venue opening sometime in spring. Which, considering it’s already March, means either a lightning-fast turnaround, or else the words “Rok Vegas” crossed out in Sharpie on all the cocktail napkins at the new place.

Foremost among the people the Las Vegas LGBT community has to thank for the proliferation of gay parties on the Strip is Eduardo Cordova. But before his great Las Vegas adventure began, the self-professed “nerd at heart” graduated from the University of Arizona with a bachelor’s degree in engineering management. The passionate promoter has diligently worked his way up from his start at an up-and-coming liquor company to launch Localites Media and later created the first LGBT events in the Strip’s mainstream clubs.
