 Beauty Bar Spotlight – Digital Freshness and Kanine Records & VenusZine parties to kick off next week’s big festival weekend

Beauty Bar ChicagoJuly 15 – Digital Freshness presents ‘str8 KILLa, NO FILLA’ featuring VIP J, DJ RTC and hosted by Freddie Gibbs

Digital Freshness is a series promoted by RubyHornet.com that brings buzzing online artists offline and into the clubs of Chicago. Like “The Ring” but less analog and ghostly and more http:// and gangster. This is their first time at Beauty Bar and we’re jazzed that DJ RTC and VIP J will be joined by Freddie Gibbs – an emcee from Gary, Indiana that has taken the web (and dare we say, the world) by storm with his brand of gangster rap. Sir Gibbs will play host throughout the night and premiere new music. Str8 KILLa, NO FILLA, indeed. Tickets are $5 with a RSVP to RubyHornet@gmail.com.

July 16 – InSound, Kanine Records, Soundscreen, VenusZine & Wao Wao Records present DJ sets by Delorean, Real Estate and Headlights and live sets from We Are Country Mice and Pepper Rabbit

Less gangster and more cuddly, Kanine Records’ party returns to Chicago this year. The formula is simple, invite two bands to come play and ask friends from around the world to hang out and DJ killer tunes all night long. This year will see live sets from Brooklyn band We Are Country Mice (that Pitchfork stress, “do not sound like a Brooklyn band. That’s kind of a compliment. They’re not lo-fi and there’s a healthy dose of country thrown into their distorted, anthemic attack.”) and Silver Lake-based, face-paint loving Pepper Rabbit. The party will continue all night with turns behind the decks by Barcelona’s Delorean (who have a new dance/indie pop LP out via Matador/True Panther Sounds), NJ boys and frequent Kurt Vile tour mates Real Estate and Polyvinyl signed Chicago native sons Headlights. The party is $5 and pretty much a guaranteed good time.
