Avicii Spins for Charity at the Vanguard

 

It was a star-studded night at the Vanguard Club in Hollywood on Thursdays.

Artists and industry heads gathered for the grand re-opening of the landmark venue as Swedish DJ Avicii spun tracks to support of his charity, House of Hunger, a nonprofit fighting global hunger.

In attendance for the evenings festivities included fellow DJs Paul Oakenfold, Swedish House Mafia, and Afrojack. The Dutch musician and Avicii chatted it up at the DJ booth in between tracks.

Also stopping by for some fun were such celebrity faces as Paris Hilton, Cheryl Burke and “Dallas” costars Matt Nordgren, Robert Ri’chard, Tara Reid and Joe Francis.

In addition to the sounds of Avicii, guests were treated to a live painting by street artist Alec Monopoly.

Avicii founded House of Hunger with his manger, Ash Pournouri, in 2011 on “the values of generosity, love and unity,” which the partners feel house music has always embodied.

The event served as a kick-starter for Grammys weekend. Avicii is nominated for Best Dance Recording for his song “Levels."
