Metro and Smart Bar pay tribute to legendary DJ and producer Frankie Knuckles, also known as the "Godfather of House Music" at this annual benefit, which benefits the Frankie Knuckles Foundation. Internationally acclaimed house DJ Derrick Carter headlines an evening of music at Metro, which includes appearances from DJ Shaun J. Wright, producer Mike Dunn and Hug Ball co-founder Eris Drew. Downstairs at Smart Bar, the crew behind the weekly Queen party (where Knuckles sometimes got behind the decks) will be spinning records while local personalities Lucy Stoole and Jojo Baby entertain the crowd. It's a fitting tribute to a towering figure in Chicago's house scene who is still dearly missed by friends and fans alike.
