Dave Dean and his Giant club brand are back as Saturday-night co-promoters at Avalon Hollywood (pictured above). Dean was booted from the club in 2006, with rumors claiming that he took too much of the door for the owners' taste. He went on to establish Giant at nearby rival club Vanguard, and the two battled for talent and ticket-buyers. Avalon's lead promoter, Garrett Chau, left late last year to take a job "to oversee the global expansion of Lollapalooza," he told us, leaving an opening at the venue. Vanguard, meanwhile, appears to be void of promoters and upcoming events (its website's calendar is virtually empty).
Way more background on this than you probably want in a post by yours truly at LA Weekly.
