For the last two years, San Francisco-based promotion group listed has thrown the ultimate midsummer blowout at Moretti’s. The group’s Varsity Allstars events have previously featured several local DJs and listed residents alongside special guest DJs Adultnapper (in 2007) and Cassy (in 2008). This year, the memorable two-room day-party features Mobilee Records label head Anja Schneider from Berlin. Over the years, the busy DJ/producer/radio host has become one of the most successful female businesswomen in a typically male-dominated industry. Joining Anja Schneider for the twelve-hour techno and house showcase is a solid roster of DJs. Representing listed is former Chicagoan Mike Khoury and the group’s newest resident, Hoj. Also on the bill are Spybar’s Dino G, Klectik label head Jason Patrick, Vision regular RJ Pickens, Illmeasures’ DJ Striz and many more. Listed has previously hosted some well-received Mobilee showcases in Chicago featuring artists Exercise One, Pan-Pot and GummiHz, and their parties tend to get pretty serious when it comes to the theme, so don’t be surprised if you see many partygoers outfitted in sports costumes while sipping their cocktails and dancing the day away or taking advantage of the outdoor grill and sand volleyball courts.
