After its successful debut, Play it Cool is back again with its latest party. This month we're welcoming a very special guest, the Windy City's own Boogie Nite, one of the finest practitioners of the art of old-school Chicago-style house mixing (let's just say he's dangerous behind the EQs). Trust us, you don't want to miss this one...
Boogie Nite (Lumberjacks in Hell/Glenview, Chicago) - SF Debut!
Chicago house didn't emerge from a vacuum. It came from the city's network of basements and warehouses, where DJs would play high octane sets of looped-up homemade disco tape edits. This sound, the original Chicago house sound, is kept alive today by Boogie Nite, an unbelievably talented DJ whose rare style couples the smoothness of spinners like Derrick Carter and Frankie Knuckles with the raw party intensity of Jamie 3:26 and Ron Hardy. Needless to say, Play it Cool is excited to host the debut San Francisco performance of this respected underground veteran.

Additional support comes by way of your resident musical hosts:
Guillaume Galuz - A transplant from Paris whose years throwing parties in that city have given him a love of proggy cosmic disco, smokey late night dance tracks, and Brian Eno.
Matthew Favorites - Veteran underground spinner from in and around the Bay Area, a master of the long blend as applied to deep techno and soul stirring vocal house.
Derek Opperman - Journalist interested in the details of club culture (he writes "Lost in the Night" for the SF Weekly). His DJ style was honed at Gemini Disco, a San Francisco-based celebration of New York dance music past and present.
Avalon Emerson - One of SF's rising stars, her hard-hitting sets of uptempo house are matched only by the drive of her techno influenced original productions. Look out for Avalon's forthcoming 12" EP on Icee Hot.
The party is UPSTAIRS at Balançoire, a new venue in the heart of San Francisco’s Mission district. (2565 Mission st, near 21st st)
$5 all night.
