20 Photos from Fatboy Slim's DJ Gig at Maya Day & Nightclub


For some party monsters in Scottsdale, the Revolutionary War apparently never ended. It's been exactly 230 years since the storied conflict with the forces of King George III that gave birth to our nation officially drew to a close, a fact that didn't seem to matter to a few of the rowdier patrons that hung out on Thursday at Maya Day & Nightclub on Independence Day.

That's because they openly took shots at the British-born big beat icon Fatboy Slim during his DJ set on the most American of holidays at the Old Town spot, the Treaty of Paris be damned. And their, ahem...weapon of choice? A couple of the numerous beach balls that frequent the establishment, two of which we witnessed while photographing the event (check out the full slideshow from the swim party).
