HE’S IN PARTIES

Howdy again Wax Trax! people,

So it looks like our IA: Wax Trax! Documentary weekend here in Chicago is shaping up to be quite a mighty-nice event!

Tickets for the April 1st artist panels have been going fast and the VIP and Super VIP options sold out almost immediately. General Admission tickets are available here

But guess what?…Yep-In addition to the Saturday event at the Vic Theatre, we have yet another pretty bitchin’ add-on to launch the weekend for even more Wax Trax! awesomeness.

In addition to special DJ nights from members of FRONT 242 (Berlin Nightclub) and Jello Biafra’s Incredibly Strange Dance Party (Liar’s Club)

We thought we would bring in another important guest DJ that is important to the original Wax Trax! story and has the perfect lineage to represent the iconic Lincoln Ave store.
