On a typical Thursday night, your average electronica artist isn't sitting down to a fancy dinner. He's just waking up from the 45-minute power nap that precedes his 96-hour working weekend, popping some pick-me-up MDMA, and uhntz-uhntz-ing through his personal hygiene routine.
This Thursday, though, it's the 25th Annual International Dance Music Awards, a very special evening whereupon the average electronica artist will don his distressed best and dine on field greens, seared salmon, a veggie bouquet, and a delightful chocolate ganache. Electro-pop acts such as Dan Black, Little Boots, and Shiny Toy Guns will provide the entertainment, while club royalty like David Guetta, M.A.N.D.Y., and Deadmau5 make a cameo or two.
