Superstar DJ Steve Aoki wants you to vote — and dance

Superstar DJ Steve Aoki encouraged throngs of young electronic music fans in fishnet tights and neon hair bows to register to vote Tuesday night, when he stopped at the Amphitheatre in Ybor City for a set with Rock the Vote.

The floor spun and shook inside the club, where barely dressed females and dudes in tank tops danced with glowsticks on their fingers. It was part of Rock the Vote's efforts to reach a new generation during this election, taking the torch from the Madonnas and Sheryl Crows of Rock the Votes past.

At the beginning of the party, the Daily Show's Aasif Mandvi walked around the club interviewing people (and gyrating with them every now and then). Steve Aoki walked in the back a couple hours later, posed for a few pictures with fans and then retreated until showtime. Then, of course, everyone danced.
