Smartbar showcases another incredible booking with the dangerously underrated DJ Nobu arriving in Chicago this Friday, February 11, 2022.

From Japan, DJ Nobu is “one of a kind; a DJ with no fixed style but instead a very real ability to draw on a wide world of music and cook up his own unique sound spaces. He is something of a cult figure for those who know with decades of experience, all of which are distilled at his acclaimed party Future Terror, his label Bitta and his few choice production outings.”

He’ll be playing at Smartbar this Friday, February 11, 2022 at OKTAVE, Jeff Derringer’s long-running and critically acclaimed residency promising techno for the masses.

Smartbar is at 3730 N. Clark Street in Chicago. Tickets $15 advanced / $20 DOS / $20 at the door and are now on sale at
