House music lovers rejoice! This Saturday, April 18th Chicago gets what is sure to be one of the best line-ups of veteran DJ’s on one bill featuring Mark Farina, Derrick Carter, and DJ Heather. All three have releases on the Om Records label and have previously collaborated with one another, but it’s rare to have three internationally known heavy hitting DJ’s on one bill.

A few weeks ago. the NBC5 gang got together at J Bar. What fun that was, and for me there was the added fun of running into one of Chicago’s most well known DJ’s and producers, Jesse De La Pena, who was spinning there later that night. I hadn’t seen him in a long while so it was good to catch up, hear what he’s been up to, and hear what he’s been listening to.
If you’ve ever picked up the Reader or any other Chicago event listing publication, chances are you’ve seen his name and maybe you’ve heard him spin “back in the day” with Liquid Soul, or around town at venues such as the Funky Buddha Lounge, Smart Bar, or most recently, on Thursdays at J Bar. In particular, Jesse has had many shows at Darkroom spinning all sorts of sets, and bringing in a whole host of other DJ’s to spin along with him. This month Jesse celebrated his birthday, and this Saturday, Sept. 27th, he’s going to be celebrating with all of us at his Birthday Bash at Darkroom. Guest DJ’s Major Taylor, Uncle Milty, and others spin too! The Birthday Bash will also mark Jesse’s last set at Darkroom, so be sure to get over there and dance, dance, dance!
