Club Reports: Spybar, Sound-Bar (Chicago)

Visiting Chicago for Christmas so of course going to look for House music in the city where it was created!  First stop Spybar!
DJ Burt in the booth playing House, of course!
Spybar is literally underground, located in the basement of a multi-story building.
I had seen DJ Lauren Lane spin in here back in 2013. Link.
Resident DJ John Curley (USA) tag-teaming with DJ Teri Bristol.
There's always great music at Spybar!
Moving directly across Franklin Street to Sound-Bar.
Early set from DJ Casmere (USA) who is really Green Velvet keeping his distinctive green mohawk under wraps!
House music had the club packed early!
DJ duo WR up next, continuing the House vibe.  Not familiar with them and couldn't find any information about them.
Lasers were in full-force!
DJ Green Velvet (USA) on the right posing for the Blog!
And then taking over around 1:15AM!
The sound system had the club vibrating! My only complaint about Sound-Bar is the main room is very wide but not very deep so only a limited number of clubbers get much of a view of the DJ.
That look of real House music!
Green Velvet putting out a lot of Vocal House, including Chris Lake's "Operator (Ring Ring)" here!
You can never go wrong with Go Go girls!
He was particularly animated last night!
Last saw Green Velvet play at EDC - Orlando in 2015 when he teamed up with DJ Claude Van Stroke under the duo name Get Real. Link.
Amazing set and a good time was had by all!
