The crew from Housepitality in San Francisco are re-colonizing Chicago’s night life scene.

Housepit CHI is a new weekly “satellite” party in Chicago launching on Tuesday, April 3 at East Room (2354 N. Milwaukee). The original Housepitality was founded 8 years ago in San Francisco largely by Chicago exiles Miguel Solari, Tyrel Williams and Bai-ee. (Read our feature story on Housepitality from 2014.)

Housepit CHI will run every Tuesday at East Room, produced by Housepitality resident Bai-ee, Striz (illmeasures) and Martin Malafaktor (React).:

“We want to focus on the more experimental sounds that made Chicago House Music what it is today,” says Bai-ee, “while also providing a safe, accessible atmosphere for creative expression on both the decks and dance-floor.” Party goers can expect an obscure selection of rotating artists and sounds early, while the dance floor builds into more contemporary House sounds late.


Housepit CHI will feature rotating residents Diz, TP-41 (apparently, Justin Aulis Long), Bai-ee, Striz, Sold, I/O DJs and Adrienne Sanchez.
