Today's image is titled DJ Nick Nice 1 and was photographed by Emily Mills.
Nick Nice is a local DJ legend, but his renown extends far beyond the Madison area. He is known as one of the founders of raves in the Midwest in the early '90s before turning his attention to Europe, making waves behind the turntables in Paris and Moscow (among other places) before returning to the U.S. The best way to get acquainted with the DJ is at Nick Nice: Pod-a-licious, a well-stocked podcast featuring mixes and sets both old and new. A brief bio with more details about Nice's work is available here from The DJ List. This photo was taken at the kickoff party for the Local Sounds music networking project based here in town, held at the High Noon Saloon in late January 2006.
