Sasha Grey Does It All

Every 15 years or so, the adult film industry gives birth to a porn star whose talents go beyond anal DP. Back in the ’70s, booby queen Annie Sprinkle fucked for money during the day while staging pseudofeminist performance art at night. And then a decade later, infamous underager Traci Lords took a shot at smutty cineplex comedy in John Waters’ Cry-Baby. But these days, Sasha Grey is that special porno pro who doesn’t do all her work while on her back. Or facedown. Or in a squatting position. It was right after cementing her status as a sex-biz star with a couple of 2007 AVN awards for Best Three Way Sex Scene and Best Group Scene that Grey started toying with all kinds of sideline occupations, including nonnude model, legit actress, serious musician, and part-time disc jockey. Now fresh off her most mainstream gig, playing herself (and Vinnie Chase’s girlfriend) on Entourage, Grey’s gonna be doing her DJ thing as part of the Catalina Hotel’s All-Access New Year’s Eve Party. According to the official literature, there will be “a complimentary champagne toast as Sasha Grey rings in the new year with guests” at midnight, after which she’ll drop some “retro” as revelers wander among “the hotel’s three buildings, open bar, endless food stations, and all-night live music.” So yeah, there won’t be any anal DP. But it should still be a good time.

Sasha Grey with Spam Allstars will perform at the All-Access New Year’s Eve Party, which starts at 8 p.m. Friday at Catalina Hotel and Beach Club (1732 Collins Ave., in Miami Beach). Tickets cost $95 via
Fri., Dec. 31, 8 p.m., 2010
