The Beauty Bar is hosting an insanely fun set of parties that you should check out!
July 17 – ‘Pearly Nights’ Unoffical Pitchfork Afterparty ($3)
If LCD Soundsystem pump you up as much as we think they will at Pitchfork on Saturday and you’re looking to keep the dance party going, we (humbly) can’t think of a better place to dance until the early morning than with Pearly Nights’ all out soul dance party featuring DJs from the barn burning Windy City Soul Club – the best rare soul DJs in Chicago. Playing vinyl of the Northern Soul variety, Motown-style gems from labels that sometimes only had regional hits with ace dancing tunes as well as your favorite recognizable sing-along classics, if you’ve ever wanted to shake a tail feather, tonight is the night to get dapper and get down. The party is $3 at the door, and that same amount will get you Bud drafts, tall boys and $4 will snag you a well drink.
July 23 – HOT/MESS benefit for TJLP featuring Butch Cassidy & Owen DMC [Chances Dances], Black Gold and Barbara Butch & Unisexy ($5)
End your week with a dance party for a good cause with Chances Dances – a dance party which functions to bring together the varied LGBTIQ communities of Chicago. The dance party benefits TJLP, the Transformative Justice Law Project, to provide free legal services to homeless and poor transgender folks in Chicago. Good deeds aside, at the end of the day, HOT/MESS is one undeniably fun dance party. Butch Cassidy and Owen DMC have been hosting HOT/MESS for the last couple of months and every party is bigger, sexier, sweatier and more over-the-top than the last and tonight they are joined by Black Gold and Barbara Butch & Unisexy to keep the temperature of the party rising all night.
