The Watcher Mixtape by NORdjs

Right click on the cover and “save as” to download.

“Who the fuck is NOR?” Their humble beginnings, down to earth attitude, and approachable nature attracts respect from a diverse fan base, including myself. Much like the NORdjs slogan, you might ask, “Who the f***k is NOR?” The kids of NOR first gained their electronic music foundation from a blend of childhoods spent in Europe and sound expertise forged in the birthplace of house music. It was only natural that NOR’s next step would be music production and international touring. Spanning the globe from Chicago to Miami and Eastern Europe, even NOR admits to not knowing what the future will bring. For now, enjoy The Watcher mixtape (also on mixcloud).

TND is Throwing a Loft Halloween Party

October 7, 2013 § Leave a comment


The gang of freaks over at The Numbered Days are back with a treat for a Halloween Loft Party on Saturday, October 26 at Logan Square Auditorium (2539 N. Kedzie Blvd.). Remember trick-or-treating? This party will be like the house that gave out king size Snickers in a bottomless bowl on the front porch that says ‘take’.

The night kicks off at 9pm with multiple DJs, headlined by Matt Roan after midnight. There will be drank. There will be a costume contest. There will be a trick-or-treat booth. And of course, there will be surprises throughout the night. Pre-sale tickets are $15 here and will go up to $20.

Having been to several TND events, I can attest, this will NOT be a typical night. See you there.

September 17, 2013 § Leave a comment

Hendrick’s Voyages into the Unusual at Salvage One was a peculiar event indeed, with an evening of inspiring swills, curious characters and unusual enjoyments all around. Hendrick’s is a gin distilled in Scotland with curious, yet marvelous, infusions of cucumber and rose.20130917-232820.jpg 20130917-232847.jpg 20130917-232914.jpg 20130917-232955.jpg 20130917-233036.jpg 20130917-233101.jpg 20130917-233122.jpg 20130917-233317.jpg 20130917-233459.jpg 20130917-233439.jpg DSC_9798 DSC_9976 20130917-233418.jpg
