THIS IS ONE HOUSE AFFAIR YOU DON'T WANNA MISS!!
SO COME ON AND JACK!!!
The third and final installment of Almighty & Insane’s essential series of Chicago House party flyers books, Beyond Heaven. Brandon Johnson put together the first and second volumes with the help of Chicago DJ Mario ‘Liv It Up’ Luna who had amassed a treasure trove of party flyers, posters and other related ephemera while living in Chicago’s Pilsen neighborhood from 1983 to 1989. This new volume stretches into more recent house history all the way up to 1992, with 96 full color pages containing "a number of rare and important flyers ranging from parties at the Muzic Box, Medusa’s, Sauer’s, and the Rainbo with heavy hitters like Ron Hardy, Frankie Knuckles, Mr Fingers, Marshall Jefferson, Steve “Silk” Hurley, Jesse Saunders, Lil Louis, Chip E and various combinations of the WBMX Hot Mix 5, to Luna’s own scene of Latino party crews, dance groups, and DJs across the Southside." Plus we’re suckers for this era of graphic design: gradients, illustrations, letraset type and hand-drawn city skylines. Never a dull moment in this book, Chicago house fanatics needn't think twice. Recommended!
