DJ McBoy on How He's Prepping for His Big Gig at Wet Electric

It's going to be a big weekend for DJ McBoy -- and a very "electric" one at that. The 21-year-old is scheduled to perform at tonight's Summer Electric party over at the Arizona Event Center in Mesa, followed by a gig on the local stage during the first day of Wet Electric on Saturday.

And while McBoy, known to his mom and pop as Danny McMahon, is naturally thrilled to be pulling back-to-back sessions over the next 36 hours, it's the latter performance that he's most excited about. And maybe even a little nervous to boot, considering it's the biggest opportunity thus far in his seven-year DJ career.
