Calvin Harris Cancels Gig After Involvement In "Violent" Car Crash

Calvin Harris has had to cancel an appearance at Omnia nightclub in Las Vegas after he was involved in a serious car crash on Friday night. Calvin was on his way to LAX airport when his SUV was hit by a 16-year-old driver. Calvin and the driver were rushed to hospital where the DJ was treated for minor injuries, while the teenage driver was suspected to have a broken pelvis. Calvin reportedly checked himself out against doctors wishes just a few hours later, but has decided to cancel upcoming gigs in order to recover.

Moby's Releases Memoir And It Includes An X-Rated Donald Trump Story

The book, titled Porcelain, hits stores today and you might even be able to catch him at your local bookshop as he heads out on a promotional tour. Moby, who's best known for his folk-sampling masterpiece, Go, has a reputation for clean-living. He's a famous animal rights campaigner, a vegan, tee-total and at one point was a born-again christian. However in Porcelain he pulls back the curtain and details his life as a hard-partying DJ in NYC. Sex, drugs and afterparties feature prominently. Apparently there's even an anecdote about 'a friend' rubbing his willy on an oblivious Donald Trump at a fundraiser.

London Night Tube Finally Gets Start Date

The new London Mayor gained ground in his claim to be "London's best mayor for nightlife" as just a few weeks into office, he's managed to confirm a commencement date for the long-delayed Night Tube. The Central and Victoria lines will run throughout the night from 19th August. While the Picadilly, Jubilee and Northern lines will follow "in Autumn".

Chocolate Is Apparently The Next Big Thing In Party Drugs

Just as the Government implemented sweeping bans on legal highs, a hip new party drug has apparently emerged to fill the void. Cacao - or chocolate, basically - is the supposedly hot new substance in party drug capital, Berlin. Cacao powder reportedly releases serotonin and stimulates the movement of endorphins and has found particular interest in a party called Lucid. The party's organiser, Ruby May, said that the powder "amplifies the experience of listening to house music and any other electronic genre". Sounds like Easter Sunday with the family should be a lot more interesting next year.
