Thank God the globally influenced HotHouse found a new home!
It felt like the day the music died a couple of years ago when they lost their lease for their South Loop space. HotHouse was one of the few places you could go in town and hear live music—for a reasonable price—from all over the world. From deep house music sets to Afro-Latin jazz, their entertaining sets always turned into all-out dance parties.
Last weekend they had a grand re-opening celebration in the Viaduct Theater (3111 N. Western Ave., 312-957-6073), and it looks like they're going to be there for awhile.
Tonight at 9pm, they're featuring flutist Nicole Mitchell for only $10, but we're more excited about tomorrow's set:
The Casa Caliente! HotHouse Latin Dance Party! features Papo Santiago y Orchestra Infraverde, De La Buena and deejays. The Latin dance parties are HotHouse's most popular and tickets usually sell out quickly. The event starts at 9pm Friday. $12 in advance; $15 at door.
