What are you all doing this May?

Hello again…Wow-2 email updates within a week!


We have some breaking news to pass along to all you Wax Trax! & Front 242 fans here in Chicago (or fans wanting to travel to Chicago).
This Spring, Wax Trax! & Smart Bar presents Richard 23 & Patrick Codenys for a special one night only DJ set, here in their official home away from home.
We are very excited to bring these 2 luminaries in from Belgium to celebrate the 30th anniversary of Chicago’s legendary Smart Bar.
In addition to R23 & Patrick, the night will open with a complete Wax Trax! set by the always fabulous team of Jena Max & Greg Haus.
The event will be held on Friday, May 10th, 2013 with advance tickets available soon through the Smart Bar website or box office. Doors will open at 10p…And stay open until 4a!

We will keep you posted in the coming months of any new details. Book the babysitter, call in sick for work. This is a one time event you’re not gonna want to miss!

Also-Since announcing the documentary last week, we are happy to say, we have been flooded with emails, questions and support. If we haven’t replied to you, hang in there, we’re doing the best we can.
As we move forward, all communication to the film crew can be directed to regressivefilms@waxtraxchicago.com
In addition to our own archives, here is what the directors are looking for: homemade video footage of the store or other relevant locations (Medusas, Club 950, etc.) or shots of my Dad & Dannie in any setting… or WT! band footage that you have…Come on 80’s art school students-we know you’ve got some great stuff boxed away! We can’t make any promises on exactly what the directors will use. We’re just trying to help by putting the right people together.

That’s it for now. We are really excited, and will keep you updated.
