On Saturday, May 23 (IML International Mr. Leather/Bear Pride/Memorial Day Weekend), beloved bear party promoter Joe Fiore returns to Chicago's Metro for to host his second Furball dance party at Metro Chicago.
The wildly popular NYC party packed drew over 800 bears, daddies and their admirers to its Windy City 2014 debut.
London-based headline DJ Hifi Sean will be jetting in to make his Furball debut and drop a signature sexy, sweat-bomb, bass-kickin' house set. (Check out his FURBALL teaser mix on Mixcloud.) A popular international DJ (his iTunes podcast boasts over 50,000 subscribers), Sean is the former singer, songwriter and producer of the seminal 90s UK band The Soup Dragons ("I'm Free") and a currently in-demand remixer and producer.
Recent collaborations include remixes with Horse Meat Disco's DJ Severino and "Sex Machine" with Chicago's own Ralphi Rosario. Anticipate the 2015 release of his first full-length album as "Hifi Sean," featuring guest vocals on every track from a clutch of dance legends, including Celeda, Crystal Waters, Fred Schneider (B-52's), Alan Vega (Suicide), and Bootsy Collins. www.hifisean.com
