Ughhh errr…pardon my tardiness for informing some of you of the dopeness that is about to take place this Friday at The Mid.
Now I know a good handful of the people I like to call my friends are well informed; kudos to you.
For those who are unaware [insert sad face], Diplo is coming to the Windy Friday and will be throwing down at the Mid.

Let’s have a little history sesh on this super funky and lovely man. Diplo is a Philadephia-based DJ who also heads and manages the Mad Decent record label. Him and another producer, Switch, are also the producers of the electro-house, reggae fusion creation that is Major Lazer. His mixes span a large range of genres and can’t really be pigeon-holed into one specific category, which makes him and his music all the more interesting.

The Mad Decent record label is home to a handful of dope artists, some including Rusko, Major Lazer, Crookers, Bonde Do Role and, ahem, Andy Milonakis. We’ll let that last one slide, but it’s a pretty nice label.

If you didn’t know about Diplo’s show, don’t worry it’s surprisingly not sold out, yet. Tickets are $25 and with the service charge it comes out to about $30. Now, get your fingers moving and purchase those tickets before they’re all gone!

The Mid is a new-ish music venue that opened up not too long ago. It’s a smaller venue which gives it a more personal, cozy feel. It’s located at 306 N. Halsted. Gonna be a good one!
