When the Westcott Theater holds an electro house show, expect a sea of neon and plenty of sunglasses at night.

Who cares if it's cold? For many of the female concert-goers at Steve Aoki on April 22, exposed midriffs and booty shorts won out, weather be damned. For the guys, mostly white tanks and sunglasses prevailed. For both sexes, neon was essential.

Review: Even with four power outages at The Westcott Theater, electro-house DJ Steve Aoki kept a sold-out crowd rolling hard.

Steve Aoki started by buttering them up.

“Yo, I just got off a long, f---ing flight from Brazil,” the DJ said before taking the stage a few minutes past midnight. “I was playing for a São Paolo crowd of 15,000 for one hour, because I knew I had to get back in time to play for you."

Screams.

“I knew if I missed this gig, I’d be pissed,” Aoki continued. “I cut that s--- short so I could be with you guys. One of the best places in the f---ing world is right here in New York.”

Review: The iconic DJ’s Schine Underground show proved he’s bound to do for house music what Mozart did for classical.

Steve Aoki played a venue that was appropriately packed to a crowd that was appropriately rowdy. It was University Union’s second sold-out show of the semester, yet there didn’t seem to be any overarching buzz for the event on campus.

It begs the question, how many people know who Steve Aoki is?

The producer and celebrity DJ will bring his hip-grinding beats to Schine on October 11.

Whether you know it or not, you’ve already seen him: in the video game NBA 2K9, perhaps, or next to Lindsay Lohan at a DJ booth. He’s made the rounds with his sister, actress and model Devon Aoki, and guest-starred – as the DJ, naturally – in the video for Cobra Starship’s “Send My Love to the Dancefloor, I’ll See You in Hell.”
