Just because he's no longer putting on Shake!, hipster king William Fucking Reed is not about to spend his weekend fucking nights sipping Chablis in his swank bachelor pad. Nope, the 32-year-old is gonna be busier than ever, as he's not only joining forces with Jared Alan and Sean Watson at Cheap Thrills every Saturday, he's launched a new weekly Friday night affair with scenester Jen Deveroux at the Mondrian Scottsdale, 7353 East Indian School Road in Scottsdale. It's called HARLOT and will feature the nightlife impresario spinning indie and electro in the Red Bar, while DJ Tricky T serves up hip-hop and club-bangers in the hotel's darkly chic Midnight Room. The music starts at 10 p.m. and there's no cover all night. Call 480-308-1100 or visit www.myspace.com/jendeveroux.
