This Sunday night the annual tribute event for the Frankie Knuckles Foundation takes on a more poignant tone. Frankie Knuckles was gone too soon – tragically soon for such a good man – and this year marks what would have been his 65th birthday.

Queen and the FKF are hosting a slew of DJs, friends, dancers and fans at For Frankie: A Celebration of Frankie Knuckles’ 65th Birthday at Metro (Smartbar is undergoing a facelift this month). The event is this Sunday at 10pm with Queen DJs Michael Serafini and Garrett David, plus Alan King from the Chosen Few, Chicago deep house legend Mark Grant and Zac Jones. Queen’s Lucy Stoole, Nico, Jojo Baby, Tenderoni and Bambi Banks-Couleé will be hosting.
