Okay, so you really want to sweat off holiday stress, maybe grind up on someone under the mistletoe and blow some of that holiday cash like it's burning a hole in your pocket? Then head to Zentra for Jack Fridays with DJ Funk. The ghetto-house master is joined by local house legend DJ Lego for a night of infectious dance music. Wallflowers are encouraged to stay home.
DJ Eleven/The Rub
Friday, December 26 at Evil Olive, 11 p.m.; $5 after midnight
Zebo and PreFrosh are joined by DJ Eleven of the Rub for a very special post-Christmas version of the Booty Up. The Rub is the famed party-turned-Scion-radio-station that helped reintroduce the fun house-party vibe at clubs in New York. The DJs share similar styles, in that they can rock the crowd whether they're playing packed loft parties or rocking bi-level clubs in Wicker Park 'til 4 in the morning.
Creme de la Crème
Saturday, December 27 at Lava Lounge, 10 p.m.; Free with RSVP to Chicago@dubfrequency.com , $5 after 11 p.m.
Oh snap. Mom and pops hooked you up this year, and as soon as you got back to your neighborhood you hit the freshest boutique to get the hottest gear. If that sounds like you, you probably already know about Creme at Lava, and if you don't, you need to come here tonight to show off your Christmas swag and dance 'til 3 am to the sounds of DJ Chuck Inglish of the Cool Kids, Million $ Mano, Willy Joy, Hollywood Holt and Mark Gertz of Dark Wave Disco.
