Need something to do Saturday night? Chances are this won’t solve that problem–but, just in case, we’re obliged to tell you that everyone’s second or third favorite Jersey Shore cast member will be dropping mad beats at the Twin River Casino in Lincoln, Rhode Island this Saturday, November 23.
Yes, that’s right, people. DJ Pauly D (a.k.a. Paul DelVecchio a.k.a. someone you forgot existed) will be returning to his home state to play all his music that we definitely know.
Tickets are actually selling fast because, bizarrely, the 33-year-old Providence native has accumulated a fervent and adoring Rhode Island fanbase. In 2010, his mere visit to a friend at University of Rhode Island incited a riot resulting in an official URI rule: Pauly D can no longer come on campus unannounced. The GTL guru is acutely aware of his adoring fans in Rhode Island, having humbly tweeted after the event, “See what happens when I’m in town for 1 day Lmaooo.”
If you weren’t one of the 2.9 million viewers watching Rhode Island’s very own Pauly D on The Pauly D Project last Thursday when it premiered, don’t worry, we got you covered. After all, Pauly D is one of BlogDH’s favoritelocalcelebs.
The Jersey Shore spinoff has a simple premise: following the adventures of Pauly D and his friends Biggie, Jerry, Ryan, and JROC. This season, as MTV says,
Viewers will get to see Pauly D chase his dream as he signs a recording contract with rap icon 50 Cent’s G-Note Records, accompanies pop icon Britney Spears on her international “Femme Fatale” tour and tries to balance it all with the array of photo shoots, public appearances and media interviews that are now a part of his everyday life.
Yeah, buddy! Your favorite Rhode Island native, DJ Pauly D, is back at it again. We thought his new ‘Jersey Shore’ spinoff, ‘The Pauly D Project,’ was his GISP. Obviously, we were wrong.
The new reality show follows the self-proclaimed “small town boy [living in a lonely world]” as he leaves the comfort of Lil Rhody in pursuit of fame and success as a DJ. Childhood friends in tow, Pauly makes moves as he books a variety of gigs and spends a lot of time with the ladiez. Like any other bad MTV show, the combination of “The Pauly D Posse” (although we think they should be called “The Plastics”), the pursuit of happiness and the single life can only mean one thing: the show must take place in Vegas, baby!
The show’s trailer (above) reveals that he spins a variety of shows in Sin City, opens for Britney Spears in Puerto Rico and signs a record deal with 50 Cent. Props for shooting for the moon and landing among the stars, Pauly D. Keep partying it up in Vegas, but we’ll miss seeing you at the intersection of Brown and Waterman… and Geoff’s.
Hometown hero(?) Pauly D made a surprise trip to URI this Wednesday night to visit an old girlfriend (one of the rarest roses?). A mob of eager students formed around his white Mercedes (detailed with his name on the back) and waited for the reality tv show star to emerge. As you can see from the video, the mob of about 400 students descended on the vehicle, presumably hoping to cop a feel of the gelled up fist pumper. Although he may have decided not to visit Brown on his trip back home, his teachings of GTL are with us always.
In case you missed it: Last semester, BlogDH sent an investigative team into the place where Pauly D gets his hair cut.
Absolutely no chance DJ Pauly D will be there, but nothing takes the sting off of remembering what you did last night like knowing you did it for a good cause! Proceeds go to the Israeli Humanitarian Relief Effort in Haiti, so drink up in the name of philanthropy!
Avon Theater, 6:30 and 8:50
I don’t know about you, but I’ve been dying to see this ever since the Oscar nominations were announced (plus, I’ve got a big ole girl crush on Maggie Gyllenhaal and she’s supposed to be excellent).
The Wooster Group
Metcalf Auditorium at the Chase Center (N. Main and College), 7:30
The Wooster Group is a visiting “multimedia theater troupe,” and I’m willing to trek part-way down The Hill simply to find out what that means. Knowledge is power, people.
