Hot Smoke & Mini Skirts

Hey Chicago, Dr. Drase and I started up a monthly residency over at Beauty Bar at 1444 W Chicago Ave. This is a brand new spot in town and if you've checked it out already then you know it has a killer dance floor. We like dancing so we're pulling out some stomping 45s in a garage / soul / crossover style, each one especially chosen to move your feet!

Our next night is on Thursday May 27th, from 9pm til close. Hop on the Facebook invite here and RSVP if you want a reminder. After that we'll be holding it down every second Thursday of the month so mark your calendar (June 10th, July 8th, ...).

As a very special treat, the first 25 friendly faces who drop in and say hi will receive a CD of rare garage 45s! Here is a playlist below; the first two tracks are clickable if you want to preview the goods. Well, we are a bunch of spoilers so if you want to get pumped go ahead and download the whole thing, the link is below.
