Tonight Los Angeles is being invaded by Chicago…house music, that is. Our old friend Noriega — who Madman’s been crashing clubs with since he was a wee speck in JNCO’s and Freshjive tees — and her ART2 crew have put together L.A. Shakedown at Vanguard in Hollywood. The night features 3 legitimate main room DJs, all Chicago legends in their own right: Derrick Carter, DJ Heather and Mark Grant. “It’s the Chicago heavyweights coming in to shake things up in LA a little,” explains Nore about her inspiration. “You dont see bills like this anymore in clubs, where you can see 3 headliners in one night. It’s always 1 A-Lister and 1 or 2 local djs because of the money — unless you’re at a festival or a holiday. I wanted to do like we used to; I wanted to feel like were putting on a real show worth the $20 cover —those were the days!” If you’re in LA tonight and you’re got the fiend for some classic Chicago house stylings, make your way to Vanguard. All details after the Jump…
