To call our some of our favorite dudes in Chicago, the fellas behind Victim of Time, “taste-makers” doesn’t seem to quite do them justice. They’ve been shining a light on some of the most interesting and exciting punk and garage music in Chicago and around the country since they launched oh, so many years ago. Tonight they invite two Chicago-bred outfits to dirty up the Beauty Bar – Spike & the Sweet Spots, featuring members of The Yolks and Mickey, and the always passionate and hook-filled Radar Eyes, hopefully playing tunes from their recently released stellar HoZac 7”. Both bands will test the BB sound system with live sets and the Victim of Time DJs will keep the party going to make sure your Thursday kicks off with a headache – the good kind, of course.
September 12 – Team Karaoke Dance Party featuring DJ BSTARR with DJ LA*Jesus & the Fabulous Ladies of Fitness (9pm; Free)
In the words of Team Karaoke, “you know what’s cheaper than therapy? Karaoke. There’s no better remedy for peeling off emotional layers than to the tune of Alice Cooper.” This now twice-monthly Beauty Bar party is hosted by booty short wearing DJ BSTARR and for the 9.12 party, DJ*LA Jesus & the Fabulous Ladies of Fitness join in on the fun spinning bouncy, 80s dance jams throughout the night. After all the Karaoking is said and done, the “King” or “Queen” of karaoke for the night wins their height in PBR. So, boys and girls, strap on your heels (more beer!) and start channeling your best Rod Stewart, Prince, ABBA, Madonna – you get the idea.
