Glass Candy

Glass Candy
Thursday, May 7 at darkroom, 9 p.m.; $10 before 11 p.m. with RSVP to
If Blondie made sexy, smart, modern dance music, you'd have Glass Candy, this month's guest for Out of Order Chicago. Featuring soft, sexy female vocals (see "Beatific" and the remake of Kraftwerk's "Computer Love") over energized, layered beats, their songs are as suitable for the morning commute and gym as they are for the club. We couldn't be more excited for this live performance. DJs Total M, Trancid and Intel spin.

Trevor Loveys
Friday, May 8 at Smartbar, 10 p.m.; $10 or free before 11 p.m.
UK-based house and fidget DJ Trevor Loveys makes his first Chicago appearance tonight at Smartbar. Loveys is poised to take over club dance floors this summer with his choppy and bouncy signature sound. Switch fans won't be disappointed. The Darkwave Disco DJs and DJ Toymaster also spin.

Saturday, May 9 at Sonotheque, 9 p.m.; $5
Prescription for an affordable Saturday night: beers, deep house and rare disco provided by Joe Bryl and Josh Deep at Sonotheque. 'Nuff said.

Crème de la Crème
Saturday, May 9 at Lava Lounge, 10 p.m.; $5 after 11 p.m.
Lava's weekly hip-hop party is back, but this time, Metrognome, Rude1, Word and Izzo take over as musical selectors. RSVP to for discounted admission.
