Off Chances MixtapesApril 20, 2009
If you live in Chicago and are both 1. queer and 2. hip, you’ve known about the Chances Dances crew for some time. After out-growing the young and fashionable dance party crowd at their main place, Subterranean, they created a more laid back night with Off Chances. Off Chances has been going strong as a “laid-back, dive-style, dance-optional party for Chicago’s LGBTIQ community” at one of the more popular hangouts in the (quickly Lincoln Parkifying) Wicker Park. Since late 2007, Off Chances has been offering a limited amount of mix CD’s for free, and they just alerted me to their blog where you can get all of the mixtapes in one place. This podcasting site posts every Off Chances mix CD as a single mp3, along with the art work and tracklist. The latest batch is “Spring Mix (I Need the Sunlight)” from DJ Dick Simmons. Free music is basically how it goes, and these mixes are curated for your pleasure.
