Over the past year, DJ Spider has been a resident artist at the prestigious Tryst Nightclub where he spins beats for thousands of clubgoers. Spider has gained such a strong following within the Vegas club he’s earned his own branded weekly party dubbed Along Came a Spider where thousands flock to the 12,000 square-foot nightclub to hear his mixes every Friday night.
Always looking to bring new technology to enhance the experience of his sets, Spider has recently begun to incorporate music videos and movie clips into his special sets at Tryst nightclub.
