On behalf of SpybarChicago, we'd like to give a giant hats off to the numerous talented individuals that ranked amongst the Top 100 DJs on Resident Advisor's annual poll. It gives us great hope that people really do care about fresh and new talent, artists that aren't afraid to take chances.
I love the nightlife, and I love electronic music. I have spent too many nights on the dance floor than I could possibly count, with plenty of those evenings spent at Spybar. With such a beautiful twenty-five thousand watt line array Dynacord sound system and the friendly staff it’s one of my favorite clubs in Chicago, if not the world.
I also love hearing protection. This should come as no surprise from the founder of a hearing protection company. However, it’s not safety that keeps me wearing earplugs. The reason I love high fidelity earplugs is that I get better sound quality while enjoying music at Spybar and other clubs. The safety bonus, that I also protect my ears so I can enjoy that live music for a long time, is just icing on the cake.
This past Saturday, November 16th, Claude VonStroke concluded his Urban Animal Tour at SpyBar, Chicago. Now, I was expecting great things from VonStroke, but he absolutely killed it with this one. There wasn’t a single bad vibe in the whole crowd, and I think that derives from VonStroke‘s carefree, joyous attitude. This dude clearly just loves the music. He’s not one of those DJs who cares about how cool he looks when he’s turning a dial.
