DJ Spinn and the Teklife Crew Crush SmartBar With Their Footwork Vibes

Teklife Vibes at SmartBar, 7/15/17

I recently hit Chicago to catch some quality music. Late on a Saturday night. I hit SmartBar for some footwork insanity from DJ Spinn, RP Boo and DJ Taye. They are members of the Teklife Records crew. Teklife is the seminal Chicago-based footwork record label.

Jimmy Buffett at Wrigley Field, 7/15/17

I had forgotten Jimmy Buffett was in town at Wrigley Field. As I was heading into Wrigleyville, thousands of Parrotheads were leaving. I exited the Red Line subway at Addison and the crush of Hawaiian shirt-wearing whack jobs going the other direction nearly flattened me. I was stepping over vomit and through the drunken masses. I waded against the current of humanity, but finally made it to SmartBar.

SmartBar, 7/15/17

I walk downstairs, the bartender says, “It’s only 11pm, we’re open till five. It goes late here.” I knew I was in for an epic evening. The beats were high-energy, the mixing was exceptional and the crowd was grooving. The skills of the DJs and the dancers were inspiring. I still can’t dance to footwork, but it was still one heck of a great night. I need to step my game up!
