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.

Broukal’s is the perfect venue for Berryoke, because the drinks are cheap, come quick, and everyone gets a chance to let loose on the mic. You don’t want to go to work on xmas eve anyway, right?!

Saturday, Dec. 26
Late Bar Opening Party!
3534 W Belmont Ave
Chicago, IL 60618
10pm til 5am; no cover
You read that correctly… til 5. If you hadn’t heard, Dave and Kristine found a bar with a 4am license and a music & dancing permit – two of the rarest commodities in Chicago nightlife. It’s the equivalent of a TV175 barn find. It just doesn’t happen. Lucky for us, it did, and they open the bar with DJ Dave Roberts’ signature event, Planet Earth.

Wednesday, Dec. 30
45 Soul Dancers at Late Bar
3534 W Belmont Ave
Chicago, IL 60618
10pm til 4am; no cover
Jenny, MLE, and JJ have been asked to spin the first soul tunes at Late Bar, and we couldn’t be happier. New Years Eve Eve! Start a new tradition and dance all night.

Thursday, Dec. 31
The Get Down New Years Party
Bay View Brewhaus
2535 S Kinnickinnic Ave
Milwaukee, WI 53207
10pm til they kick us out; $10
If you haven’t been to Milwaukee for NYE, you owe it to yourself to make the trek. For one night closing hours are ignored and the town stays open all night. Some bars won’t close until January 2. We’re not kidding. We have no idea how late the Brewhaus will let us stay, but we do know that we’ll get all the hot Get Down DJs, The Chain will be playing a live set, Mr. Fine Wine of Downtown Soulville (WFMU) will be spinning, JJ will be there to represent the Windy City Soul Club, there’s free falafel, and in general it will be an amazing party.
