John Bartlett has a new sideline: deejay. The designer, who is also an amateur turntablist, is slated to spin late Thursday night at Joe’s Pub as part of its “personality guest deejay” series.
“There isn’t going to be any scratching,” he assured. Expect instead disco hits and “techno meets ‘The Sound of Music.”‘ Bartlett will share the decks with Vibe editor in chief Emil Wilbekin.
Jodie Becker, an owner of Joe’s Pub and the producer of the event, said she’s targeting other fashion luminaries, including Daryl Kerrigan, Susan Lazar and Ellen von Unwerth, for upcoming nights. Since the event premiered late last year, amateur spinners have included Ahn Duong, Tom Sachs, Rachel Williams and Duncan Sheik.
