My Upcoming DJ Gigs

Friday - July 29 @ The Hive
1902 N Milwaukee Ave #2


Details:
THE HIVE IS BORN: CELEBRATE YOUR REBIRTH
The artist exhaustingly exploits an elemental force that birthed into their existence. This force grows to be almost uncontainable so proceeds to contextualize from thought to form. This cyclic demeanor of creation renders a tragic beauty in which we would like to celebrate.

BIRTH FEST explores the process of birth as a metaphor for creation beyond just the individual artist and furthermore into social context from which art strives. As a community space we hope to become fertilized with the brilliance of your mind. This show is NOT purely about showing art, its about creating a context for artists to merge.

Saturday Aug 13, 10 pm @ Secret Location on the North Side


Details: 
It's taken months to find the perfect spot for us to get down, underground, and do the Safety Dance, and we've got it! Come party 'til the break of dawn in an intimate but large loft that you may have seen in the movies or at a deeply underground afterparty. We're going to transform the space for your dancing, creating, and socializing enjoyment for one night.

Move your feet to the sounds of:
Duke Shin - Bad Advice, Inc.
Marcin Albekier - Freakeasy
Magpie - p.e.t.
Puffs Baggswelle - Cleverpillar
DJ Ryan - Safety Third Productions
Noble - Barrel Dem
Los Hamburgler - Cleverpillar

Feast your eyes on creative work by:
The KnockOut Photo Booth with Ordinary Anomaly
Gordon Kummel
Ellie Sorokin
Elysia Lock
Amy J Designs
...more TBA

Space is limited for this private, invitation-only event. It's $10 in advance, and $15 at the door (if there is room). Advance RSVPs are strongly encouraged, and the only way you can ensure your spot is by donating in advance. You can reserve your spot using WePay:https://www.wepay.com/dona​te/safety_dance.

The northside location will be sent to all those who RSVP. It's very convenient to public transportation and cabs. It's street parking in a busy neighborhood, so carpooling is great if you have to drive.

This is a new space and cooperation with the owners and the community is key to protecting us all. Please come and go quietly, dispose of your trash properly, and do not hang around outside of the venue. Protect the community we all love and are always building.

See you there, suckahs!
