5 Mag is thrilled to announce our next party at Smartbar on Friday, May 31 2024. This time we’re welcoming Jamie 3:26, Chicago hero whose legend has deservedly spread to the four corners of the world, for a special headlining set. Also on the bill is one of our favorite artists to emerge in the last several years: Los Angeles music producer, DJ and an amazing artist, Seven Davis Jr. Harold Heath interviewed Seven for the first time in 5 Mag a couple of years ago. By sheer coincidence, we had a cover story based around his new album Stranger Than Fiction ready to go before this booking happened, and it’s even more amazing now that we’ll be able to have him in the legendary Smartbar as well.5 Mag’s Czboogie rounds out what will be one of our finest parties of all time — you can see her latest Cz’s House episode here. more ⟶
