Aries of Diamond Jacks Gentlemans Club
Club: Diamond Jacks Gentlemans Club, 3845 East University Drive
Explanation behind her stage name: "It's easy to be heard over music, and it's my horoscope sign."
The song: "Flashing Lights" by Kanye West.
Why she likes it: While she's usually busy three or four nights a week mixing and mingling at Diamond Jacks, this pulchritudinous pixie spends the rest of her time enjoying Japanese anime, comic books and other nerdy ephemera and media. The 21-year-old geeky gaijin goddess is also a devotee of cosplay, and claims she drops some serious money into creating outfits similar to her favorite anime characters.
Given her Japanophile proclivities, one might think she would prefer to strip to songs by such Nipponese bands as Shonen Knife or perhaps The 22.214.171.124's instead of one of the signature anthems of the Louis Vuitton Don.
"Nah," she says. "I just like listening to Kanye when I dance, and this is a hip-hop place so stuff like that gets played a lot."
Current schedule: Various nights throughout the week after 4 p.m.
