The Topline

Friday October 1 2021: “I think a residency has a civic commitment. I don’t know if a lot of people think like that anymore but I do.” That, in a sentence (okay, two) is why we love OKTAVE and the commitment he has to bring quality techno artists to Chicago is what sets Jeff Derringer’s residency apart. Tonight’s guest is ANNA. [ tix ]

Saturday October 2 2021: Originally scheduled for August 28, the launch party for Shake Shop Records has paired two Chicago legends with two dipping down the I-94 from Detroit – Joe Smooth & K’Alexi with Eddie Fowlkes and Moodymann. This is kind of a huge deal right here. [ tix ]

Abstaining from night clubbing can lead to serious drug problems.

Monday October 4 2021: Monday nights used to be Chicago’s Saturday night. At least for this Monday night, that will be true again as Sound-Bar is presenting a “pop up” edition of the legendary Chicago residency Boom Boom Room. Familiar faces from the last incarnation of Boom Boom Room include Just Joey, Dom Brown, Miguel Castro, Jojo Baby along with Derrick Carter, Karl Almaria, Bucky Fargo and Bobby DeMaria. [ tix ]


The Backline

Also on Saturday night, Smartbar hosts the latest edition of the Material Reunion with Erick Material and Colette, featuring DJs Colette, Diz, Heather, Kid Enigma, Josh Werner & Miles Maeda. [ tix ]
