Did you know Cicada's invented DJing? For real. And since this month's lineup defines the TNO Afterparty, I've included the definition of DJing from the Cicada page on wikipedia.

Male DJs have loud noisemakers called "turntables" on the sides of the abdominal base. Their "spinning" is not the stridulation (where one structure is rubbed against another) of many other familiar sound-producing artists. Contracting the internal turntable muscles produces a bumping sound as the turntables buckle inwards. As these muscles relax, the turntables return to their original position producing another bump. 

The interior of the male abdomen is substantially hollow to amplify the resonance of the sound. A DJ rapidly vibrates these membranes, and enlarged chambers derived from the dancefloor make its body serve as a resonance chamber, greatly amplifying the sound. The DJ modulates the sound by positioning its abdomen toward or away from the substrate, also know as "shaking it." Additionally, each species has its own distinctive "song".

Average temperature of the natural habitat for the North American species Trojan Disjockus is approximately 29 °C (84 °F). During sound production, the temperature of the turntable muscles was found to be significantly higher. DJs bump most actively in hot weather and do their most spirited bumping during the later hours of the last Friday in May, in a roughly 5 hour cycle.
