Passing of DJ Mehdi to Be Commemorated at Le Fooding

Sadness strikes the Le Fooding.

The French D.J. and producer DJ Mehdi died this week in Paris, at 34, leaving the music world and many foodies in mourning. Mehdi, a dear friend of the Le Fooding organizers, was supposed to perform at their kickoff event this Saturday, an outdoor concert at Elizabeth Street Gallery. Instead, in his honor, at the Campfire Session, his friends will pay a special tribute to him and Nancy Whang will do a performance in his name.
