Borgore Gets too hot to handle at Coachella

The Israeli DJ-producer Borgore got a bit too risqué for Coachella organizers' tastes at his performance during the festival's first weekend. "The second weekend set is different because on the first weekend, we had two pole dancers and we made them strip down to pasties. Coachella weren't feeling that," explained the former metal drummer turned dubstep star at Rolling Stone's Rock Room party.

Despite the live show reconfiguring, Borgore (real name: Asaf Borger) was pleased to perform in the dance-driven Sahara tent with so many of his friends and EDM peers. "You know, doctors have doctor conventions. Cosmetics have cosmetic conventions. We just have Coachella,"he said cheerfully.
