Derrick Carter and .dotbleep’s Dan X put their impeccable DJ schools to work for a great cause at Smart Bar this weekend. The duo will ring in the new year with bouncing house rhythms and sexy tech-house at a charity event to benefit PAWS, Rock For Kids and the Chicago Childrens Charities. Dance all night for a mere ten bucks and know it’s going someplace good. (John Alex Colon)
