Joe Gauthreaux delivered his sexy beats to Heretic on Friday, opening a long Joining Hearts Weekend of shirtless dancing and drinking.

Gauthreaux is no stranger to Atlanta or the Heretic, where he stepped into the DJ booth on Friday. He was there in March, showing once again that he knows how to work that intimate space into a frenzy.

Friday’s event served as the official kickoff to the weekend and the main event, the big gay pool party the next day known as Joining Hearts (photos). The entertainment lineup also included TakeOver at the W Midtown and Tony Moran packing Jungle on Saturday.
