Rockstar at Rockbar? Not an unusual coincidence: The glammed-out DJ with the neon mohawk, who refers to himself as "the love child of Klaus Nomi and Nina Hagen," spins mixes from the ´80s and beyond every Friday at the East Colfax joint. But this night is different from all other nights in that it's also when the celeb-crazy annual Rockstar Aaron's Hollywood Birthday Party takes place. There'll be red carpet on Colfax -- and expect the carpet on top of Aaron's head to look just as colorful. No doubt he and guest host Darlen (one of the bad girls from season two of Oxygen's The Bad Girls Club) will keep the place hopping, skipping and oingo-boingo-ing all night long.
Find Rockbar at 3015 E. Colfax Avenue. Guesting DJs paying tribute tonight include Markie from Tracks, Rocky Mountain Roller Girl Pinkie 500 and Rockbar's own Eileen. Admission is a $5 cover at the door; go to Rockstar Aaron's website for details.
