Lady Gaga Remix Proved Too Much for D.C. Clubgoer

On Saturday night a 58-year-old man had a heart attack and died at Town Danceboutique, the D.C. venue that bills itself as “the first new gay danceclub to open in Washington DC in decades.” In an email, the club’s management wrote staffers “contacted emergency personnel who responded and worked extensively trying to revive him. He was transported to the hospital where he later passed away. Town management closed the club early due to this horrible event. Our thoughts are with him and his family.” And then there’s web commenter David, who says, “I randomly talked to a patron who wound up at Nellies after everyone was ushered out. He was right next to the individual when it happened. Apparently the staff did nothing for a full 10 minutes. Can anyone confirm or deny this?” Unfortunate either way.[photo: Christopher Wiggins]
