On Tour

Thursday, April 5, 2012 - 22:00
Crimson Lounge Chicago, Illinois, USA

Following the success of Autobrennt’s new Thursday monthly event, Crimson Lounge again combines forces with New York based Autobrennt for another nocturnal treat. On Thursday, April 5 from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m., Autobrennt returns to Chicago for their monthly party at the Sax Chicago’s sultry Crimson Lounge with Beats in Space radio chief Tim Sweeney and Honeyball in tow to provide the soundtrack.

Tim Sweeney and Beats in Space: the story of the man is synonymous with that of the radio show. Over the course of a decade, Sweeney has built Beats in Space into an iconic brand. In return, BiS has launched Sweeney's career as one of New York's most sought-after DJs. It's hard to believe that, ten years ago, Sweeney was an 18-year-old student at New York University, helming a little-known radio show on WNYU's AM dial. The show started small, airing on an obscure frequency during the wee hours of the night. However, Sweeney understood the huge potential for a dance-music radio show broadcast from the heart of New York City. He envisioned a genre-breaking format, showcasing the best dance music—whether disco, new wave, Chicago house, minimal techno, Krautrock, funk and soul, or post-punk—found anywhere in the world, anytime in history. Armed with this vision, Sweeney began pulling in heavy-hitting guest DJs on BIS, prompting WNYU's producers to move him to the FM dial with increasingly prime timeslots. Sweeney quickly attracted a strong international following for the diverse range of artists and styles on his playlists. Over the twelve eclectic years the show has been running from its base in NYC, Beats in Space has featured everyone from Nico Jaar to Soul Clap to Roman Flugel, who have all visited the hallowed studio between 10:30pm and 1:00am each Tuesday night. Other guest artists who've appeared alongside Sweeney on the show range from avant-techno stylists like Carl Craig and Superpitcher to Australian turntablists, the Avalanches to Nordic disco producers like Lindstrom and Prins Thomas. On Thursday, April 5th, when Sweeney takes the decks at the beautiful Crimson Lounge, expect a set from the man to be as diverse as it is high quality. Local Chicago DJ Honeyball rounds out the night with some sumptuous house sounds of the sort he provides regularly around the Windy City.

As always, this is a free party, so there’s really is no excuse for you not to come on down to enjoy organic house and deep disco grooves in a lush, opulent atmosphere that’s second to none. Guests will enjoy $6 Absolut cocktails, $8 Absolut martinis, and select $4 beers. Crimson will also be offering special $150 Birthday and Bachelorette Party Packages which include a bottle of Absolut or Chambord vodka, bottle of champagne, and dessert platter.
