Wow. Just wow.
I've been receiving a shitload of emails today about who's throwing the REAL Boom Boom Room tonight. And while the original Monday night house party continues on at Green Dolphin Street (and they're also proclaiming to be celebrating 17 years in 2008), a new event called Beats, Bass & Rhythm, which is hosted by its former promoters Music 101, is launching tonight at Vision (640 N. Dearborn St., 312-266-1944). Got that?! OK.
Now, what's also interesting is that long-time nightlife promoters Pure Future have jumped aboard the original and have signed on some heavyweight deejays to perform at future parties happening at Green Dolphin Street (2200 N. Ashland Ave., 773-395-0066), including Kerri Chandler (3/10), Louie Vega (3/17) and Mark Grant (3/31). What will also probably keep this event on top is the fact that they've brought back original Red Dog residents (where Boom Boom Room started!) Lego and Michael Serafini.
This should be interesting; but we definitely needed something exciting to happen to house music here!
