If you’re in the mood to groove, you’re in luck. Catch one of Chicago’s finest DJs and event curators at the MCA for Soundtrack with CQQCHIFRUIT. In celebration of the closing weekend of Forecast Form: Art in the Caribbean Diaspora, 1990s–Today, CQQCHIFRUIT — a multidisciplinary artist of Cuban and Puerto Rican descent — will close out the day spinning sounds inspired by their Miami roots, Midwestern residence, and global interests. They’ll emphasize tribal and vocal house, hypnotic trance, and banging bass. CQQCHIFRUIT is a guest resident DJ at Smart Bar and the co-founder of TRQPiTECA, an artist duo and production company co-founded by DJ La Spacer.
Afterwards, continue the party by taking a car south to Chinatown, where you will find a plaza full of endless food options. Nine Bar (216 W Cermak Rd, Chicago, IL 60616) is the newest addition to the complex. It’s Chinatown’s first dedicated cocktail lounge, boasting an incredible selection of craft cocktails and Asian-inspired bar bites in a sparkly space.
