Music: house, techno, garage
Cover: $20-30
It's Public Works' 4 year anniversary and they're celebrating with a 5 hour (one for good luck) set from the one and only Danny Tenaglia. Tenaglia is one of those DJs who grew up alongside house music, buying his first vinyls in the 70s and growing up musically - and party-wise - at the infamous Paradise Garage, Larry Levan's NYC nightclub that significantly helped to define the start of house music in America. After learning from the greats at the garage, Tenaglia went on to residencies in Miami, Roxy in NYC, Tunnel and more. He has consistently brought Chicago and New York house to his often lengthy sets and has helped to determine the continuation of the garage sound well into the 21st century. Tonight his long set will be a treat as history repeats itself and helps to establish Public Works as one of our nations eminent clubs alongside the superclubs which Tenaglia has helped to make infamous over the years.

This veteran has seen residencies at Roxy, Stereo in Montreal, and Crobar, and it's no wonder why - he does what he does quite well. His brand is all about those apathetic vocals, ceaseless, pounding beats, and above all - fueling the party. He'll be playing an extended set and the remaining hours will be filled by the likes of Ben Seagren and Dean Samaras. So don't say no one told ya when you get that itch to keep going Saturday night!
