The Merge at Late Bar

Monday, June 21st, 2010

Our Way of Thinking and Mods v. Rockers gave us two sterling weekends in Chicago… lucky for us, the summer is just getting started.  Our friends at Late Bar have tapped local scooter clubs and some of the scene’s finest DJs to get down every Friday – they’re calling it The Merge.  Last week’s kick-off party was a great start, and we see the night growing bigger and better. Expect to hear soul and ska and boogaloo and psych and freakbeat and revival and brit pop and anything else you want to hear that the DJs have in their box. The sound is broad, and we want everyone to feel welcome.

You’re gonna want to say you were there, to tell the kiddies about this night.  Let them know that The Merge was something magical… that Late Bar was your favorite place ever to get a drink and dance.  Luckily, it’s open till 4am every Friday so you have plenty of time to make it happen. And Hobgoblin drink specials to wash it all down.

Return to Subt Tonite

Saturday, March 13th, 2010

Last time we were at Subterranean we had such a blast, we’re quite happy that Gary invited JJ to spin here again. This bar was host to a number of great nights, including the Rare $oul Millionaire’s monthly and I’m The Face from MODchicago’s Eric Colin and the late Dan Parry of Northern Guerrillas. Always a pleasure to spin this spot.

Gary has brought Grover in from Cincinnati for this round, so we’re guaranteed to hear some top notch scooter rally sounds… and still on the heels of High Rollers, that’s just what we’re in the mood for. This time, WE bring the talc.
