The Black & Blue Ball
The Black & Blue Ball.
Originally housed in the now shuttered Man’s Country and Eagle on Chicago’s far north side, “The Black & Blue Ball” has grown from a 200 person party back in 1998 to well over 2000 people ready to get their groove on for one last night of leather fantasy. International Mister Leather’s iconic closing party comes to Chicago’s historic House Of Blues for the first time with Matthew Harvat and his team ready to transform the venue into a different and exciting space for this event.
Returning for his third triumphant year, DJ/Producer Tom Stephan (London, NYC/ Superchumbo) brings his captivating sound of dark beats and vocal dubs to close out this 20th Anniversary party. Joining Tom for the second straight year is globally recognized Canadian born DJ/Writer/Producer Karsten Sollors, whose electronic rhythms will surround the packed house with an irrepressible groove. This party and its guests deserve the best venue available for the 40th anniversary of IML. At last it has one.
