ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Futur is an upbeat dance night that draws thematic inspiration from a schizophrenic blend of 1920s futurism, post World War II pseudo-sophistication, and the techno-utopianism of the Nintendo generation.

The night will feature an ultimate DJ squadron led by DJ DOWNTIME. Each member of this force draws upon their individual musical wisdom to provide positive and uplifting dance beats for an ever-evolving audience. So long as a DJ is spinning the dancing never stops! Expect a vast and creative playlist featuring upbeat danceable indie music from around the globe.

Every Friday a special guest performer will take the stage, too. To kick the night off right the Crofoot has enlisted HEARTS OF DARKNESSES, a solo project of electronic music producer Frank Musarra. Hearts of Darknesses grew to relative infamy after years of raucous performances all over the globe, usually with fellow Midwest-based laptop pranksters GIRL TALK and WHITE WILLIAMS.

With THEMSELVES: Coming from way beyond left field, past the foul-ball pole and out of the stadium, is Themselves. DoseOne's distinct verbal abstractions are complemented by Jel's equally perplexing yet intriguingly potent production. Their anti-establishment offerings will have open minded rap fans stomping their feet while reciting their complex raps.

Futur will shift between sophistication and absurdity. Specialty drinks garnished with over sized flowers, and food grade dry ice will give guests a bizarre choice of sci-fi inspired cocktails. High contrast lighting, dense foliage, vibrant colors, light spires, and unique real-time video projections will give the night an unrivaled look.

Coupled with the Crofoot's notorious Friday night art explosion PHONOTROPIC, Friday's at the club will offer guests a dynamic and inspiring atmosphere for a bargain of a price. $5 gets you into both events, and gives you free reign of the Crofoot's vast first floor featuring 4 bars, 3 rooms, 2 stages, and 1 Phreddy.
