Perry Farrell To Make Fashionable DJ Debut

Perry Farrell will make his DJ debut in New York City on Thursday night in front of an audience of such celebrities as Marilyn Manson, Sean "Puffy" Combs and L.L. Cool J at a party celebrating the opening of an Italian fashion store, Bottega Veneta.

Also slated to perform at the gala is Ben Harper, who just completed opening a handful of dates for Pearl Jam, including a pair of sold-out shows at New York's Madison Square Garden. Other notable names expected to attend the show include Naomi Campbell, Stephen Baldwin, Rose McGowan and Stephen Dorff.

Farrell, who became a father last month when his longtime girlfriend gave birth to a son, Jobel, is still working on the debut album from his new band, Gobalee, which is expected to be out in early 1999.
