Old-fashioned common sense dictates that you don't want to get electricity-powered equipment near a body of water, much less a swimming pool. The newly opened Maya Day & Nightclub, 7333 East Indian Plaza in Scottsdale, flips the script on that particular notion, as its does with a few others. The 27,300-square-foot beach club and nightlife complex, which took more than a year to build and opened its doors within the past few days, features an island-like platform in the middle of its resort-style pool that soon will host decks and amps wielded by some fairly big names from the EDM/DJ world. And the chap who gets the honor of breaking the place in is Mr. Feels So Close himself, Calvin Harris. The Scottish electro-house/nu-disco producer will perform at one of the club's first big shindigs on Sunday, April 28. It's fitting, in a way, considering his last performance in Scottsdale was at the now-defunct Myst, which was torn down to make way for Maya. Life's funny like that sometimes. The afternoon-long party starts at 11 a.m. and will feature several local DJs providing support. General admission is $55, VIP access is $150. See www.sle tickets.com.
