When French house superstar David Guetta screams, "Fuck me, I'm famous!," don't expect to be compensated for your services. Because "EDM groupie" is never a paid position. The work is its own reward.
Derrick May. With Jonathan Cowan. As part of FDR Fridays. Friday, August 30, 11 p.m., FDR Lounge at the Delano, 1685 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-674-5752; delano-hotel.com. Tickets cost $15 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. What are the general tasks, functions, and/or responsibilities of a DJ? Pushing buttons? Pumping fists? Picking fun music? No way, if you ask Derrick May, it's a deadly serious gig. As he recently told entertainment site Scene 360: "The audience is my enemy. My job is to destroy them."
