Down here in the Magic City, if there's one thing we really love, it's a good show. So even if you're not crazy about Steve Aoki's mixes, at least you can expect a night of instantly recognizable party tracks, crowdsurfing, stage-diving, The Lion King theme music, and free vodka shots poured straight into your mouth by the DJ himself.
Now there's a reason Aoki knows to put on such a wacky show -- he founded Dim Mak Records, which has released records by artists like Bloc Party and the Klaxons. And more recently, he's been collaborating with the likes of Laidback Luke and Afrojack, while working on a clothing line with his model-actress sister Devon.
So maybe Aoki's mixes don't blow you away. (Don't worry, he doesn't do
too much for us either.) But why not go for the pure entertainment value? After
all, that shot of Grey Goose tipped straight from the bottle might save
Steve Aoki with special guest Autoerotique. Saturday, July 2. Mansion
