Fatboy Slim Brings His Rockafeller Skank to Arkadia December 31

Fatboy Slim
Around the turn of the century, it seemed at one point that Fatboy Slim (AKA Norman Cook) would be the first superstar DJ. While he reached an incredible level of success Stateside, it paled in comparison to his European achievements. Hey, a dance sequence to the tune of "The Rockafeller Skank" in 1999's She's All That can only take you so far.

But when Cook's music wasn't popping up in teen comedies, he made sure to punch it up with memorable visuals. For instance, his video for "Praise You" featured director Spike Jonze flanked by reject dancers doing an interpretation of the track outside a California movie theater. And "Weapon of Choice" had actor Christopher Walken dancing and flying around in an empty hotel lobby. But these days, Cook's mainstream output hasn't been as steady, having not released a proper solo studio album since 2004's Palookaville.

Still, that shouldn't deter you from partying with the big beat pioneer New Year's Eve at Arkadia. The $200 general admission ticket might be a deal breaker but otherwise Cook is guaranteed to help you usher in the new year properly. Basketball player turned DJ Rony Seikaly will also take a turn at the decks. And if you need to party like you've never heard the word recession, table packages range from $2,500 to $15,000.
