Pretty Vacant!

As if he wasn't already busy enough running the ultra-popular Shake! on Saturdays at The Rogue East, DJ William Fucking Reed is kicking off another weekly dance night for hepcats and hotties alike with Pretty Vacant! at Anderson's Fifth Estate, 6820 East Fifth Avenue in Scottsdale. Every Friday, Reed will join forces with former Hot Pink! resident Sleazy Sean to spin plenty of hip (and hyphenated) genres, including synth-punk, electro-trash, and disco-house. Continuing with his tradition of bringing superstar guests from the music industry to join them on the turntables, Reed's planning on trotting out such big names as Gerald Casale from Devo, Daniel Ash from Bauhaus, and members of Wolfmother. First on his list is Marky Ramone, drummer for the legendary punk band The Ramones, who'll hang with Reed and Sean on Friday, October 20, following the performance of his new group, Osaka Popstar, at Fiend Fest '06. The 21-and-over night kicks off at 9 p.m. Admission costs $8 before 11 p.m., $10 afterward. Visit www.clubprettyvacant.com.
