More White Party entertainer rumblings

Remember my column last week about a rumored “surprise” performer (possibly Rihanna, as some say?) for this year’s White Party Palm Springs? Well, another tantalizing hint was left by Jeffrey Sanker this past Monday on his Instagram account:

“jeffreysanker Where can you catch the performances of @LadyGaga, @KESHAsuxx,@robynkonichiwa, AND @maryjblige?? #ONLYATWHITEPARTY. Wait for this years surprise. ;)”

So, it would appear that a “surprise” of some sort is indeed in the works. As to what it is, we will have to wait and see (such is, sadly, the nature of surprises).

SDSU has some really hot scientists

Local DJ and crowd favorite Marcel Hetu (aka DJ Marcel) did a promo video for SDSU that ran on PBS this month, about some of his non-DJ hobbies (like being a research scientist and an educator). It’s definitely worth checking out!
