Spin city

World-class DJ Roonie G, who for some reason is still slumming in Columbus, Ga., despite regular gigs in Vegas and such, has been nominated at one of DJ Times magazine as one of America's Best DJs for 2008.

Now Roonie, who was one of the first guys to use a digital turntable with CDs and a pioneer as a video DJ, just needs people to vote for him. The DJ Times Web site is here, and the page what has the ballots is over here. You can vote for up to five, but unless you want to cancel out your vote for the local boy, I'd suggest just one... He's up against the likes of The Crystal Method and Moby, by the way.

And if you're interested in more about Mr. G — including his forthcoming date at Atlanta nightclub Opera — check out his own page on the Interweb.

I caught Roonie's sets when he spun at the now-defunct RA at the Luxor...so old school!

I don't think he's done a local gig since New Years. He always bring the party! ... And Jenn, how did you know? (Hah!)
