After spending a month on Deadmau5 tour bus, LA nightlife photographer Drew "Rukes" Ressler returned home to shoot May's nocturnal action. He paid a visit to his friend Daisy De La Hoya (Wikipedia says that's not her real name,) whose "Rock of Love" reality spinoff, "Daisy Of Love" can be seen on VH1. Rukes' pal Deadmau5 returned to Los Angeles for a soldout gig at the new-and-improved Palladium, and a near-gig at Santa Monica's Apple store. Thanks to a too-large crowd, the gig never happened. Sorry ravers. He also stopped by Giant's Anaheim outpost, Red, where a few star jocks rocked The O.C.. Also, rockers Last Exit at Dragonfly.
