Abstract: I will briefly review the higher spin generalization of the well known equivalence between SL(2)xSL(2) CS gauge theory and 3D Einstein Gravity with negative cosmological constant. Generalizations of BTZ black holes can be found in these theories but the presence of horizon is not a gauge dependent statement. Apparently there is always a gauge where the geometry looks like a domain wall configuration interpolating between two different AdS's and different asymptotic W-symmetry algebras. A pretty much detailed CFT dual perspective can be decoded just from the HS bulk analysis.
