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.”
Pauly, whom BlogDH staffers once spotted at College Hill’s own Geoff’s Superlative Sandwiches, definitely has a lot of material to make his set on Saturday heart-wrenching and emotional. In case you’ve missed the tragedies that have befallen Pauly since
people stopped caring about him Jersey Shore ended, here’s what he’s been up to: His Jersey Shore spinoff The Pauly D Project was cancelled after one season. His baby mama would not let him see his own daughter, Amabella (yes, that’s an “m” and not an “n”), for the first five months of her existence. He finally got the chance to meet her on November 6. At least she looks like him!
But back to his “music.” While his sets have been described by TMZ as him “showing up and turning on [his] iPod,” he nonetheless signed a record deal with 50 Cent’s G-Note Records last year. Though he has yet to release an album, he did release a single in January of this year featuring that guy who sang “Down” (Jay Sean), entitled “Back to Love”. It’s actually not awful if you have enough to drink before listening.
Tickets are $25 and on sale here. And if DJ Pauly D’s greatness isn’t enticing enough, I’d suggest going just for the “very special guest”: DJ Freezy. I would post a hyperlink to his music but unfortunately there is none on YouTube.
