Star Creature Universal Vibrations Records & The Boogie Munsters Crew present a night of live Boogie, Funk and Disco Entertainment paired with dancing and positive futuristic attitudes. This is a Triple 7” Release Party as all 3 performing artists will each be releasing a new 7” Vinyl Single this night.
Donnell Pitman
Donnell Pitman
Any disco DJ worth their weight in vinyl knows the name Donnell Pitman – mostly due to his highly sought after releases of the late 70s and early 80s. Renewed interest in Donnell’s work has reached critical mass over the past few years fueled by Joey Negro’s Z Records licensing Donnel’s seminal “Love Explosion” on Red Greg’s Under the Influence vinyl compilation series and Chicago’s Numero Group putting out undiscovered unreleased boogie bangers “Burning Up” and “Taste of Honey”.
It was this renewed interest that caught the attention of local Chicago producer Kumar McMillian. Kumar’s instrumental disco group Wings of Sunshine was looking for another vocal collaborator following debut 7” release on Star Creature Records. A casual introduction led to a casual studio session between the two parties culminating in 2017’s modern disco masterpiece “Do You Wanna” b/w “Need My Love” released on Chicago’s own Star Creature Universal Vibrations.
2018 promises to be just as fruitful for Mr. Pitman. This spring, rare soul & boogie re-issue label Athens of the North re-released a previously untouchable 45 and next up is his 2018 follow-up on Star Creature with 2 dance floor tunes featuring production from Chicago’s Wings of Sunshine again plus modern funk favorite Liquid Pegasus out of Minneapolis. Donnell is excited to return to the Hideout where he performed for the first time in 30 years in 2017. I guess this makes it the 2nd performance in 31 years!
Shiro Schwarz
Shiro Schwarz
Translated through a hybrid German/Japanese dictionary, their name means White Black, however their live shows come through vibrantly across the polychromatic spectrum even going as far as including colors that haven’t even been invented yet. This Latin Lover Audio/Visual duo puts a twist on the synth heavy, post disco “Boogie” sound that launches their audiences out of their space-time continuum comfort zone. They sing, they dance, they shred synths and they incorporate a visual aspect that will lighten your gravitational load.
With so Chicago being so closely linked to Mexico in so many ways, Shiro Schwarz performing here is always a sort of homecoming. They are fresh off a West Coast tour that culminated with a sold out gig alongside modern boogie pioneer DAM-Funk at LA’s Globe Theatre and ready to debut new audio and visual material.
Family of Geniuses
Family of Geniuses
Fresh new band on the scene alert. What started off as a fresh new outfit headed by Augustine Rampolla of Power-Pop band Hellogoodbye has started to blossom into a funk packed boogie bunch courtesty of Star Creature influences like E. Live and Saucy Lady. The 7 piece pop-funk has been getting a lot of attention around the city with headline slots and sold out shows at Lincoln Hall, Schubas, Sleeping Village and even this past Star Creature Vibes show at the Hideout. They are celebrating the release of their debut vinyl single on Star Creature Universal Vibrations Records.
