[REVIEW/EVENT] BAM & Absolut Vodka Presents “Back to Basics” ft. The Crystal Method + One-Z Night Stand Invite


Its rare that we post city nightlife events to the blog, but sometimes one comes along that simply cannot be hushed and we have to share it with you. Our friends the Lunatics of BAM are usually the ones that open our minds in such a way that containing the insanity of the evenings they create is simply impossible.

On Monday April 27th, they once again surprised us with one of the most creative and energetic nights Chicago will see all year. Under the umbrella of an all out Absolut Vodka “Back to Basics” theme, the boys of BAM themed out Chicago’s hottest location, The MID, into an all out Swedish House Party, with The Crystal Method on the decks and half of Chicago’s downtown industry workers on their coattails. Its hard to explain the energy in the MID that night, so we thought we would share a video that just may do it justice. ENJOY!



We predict 2012 will be BAM’s year to shine in the party and event industry. They are already, hands down, leading the game in the city of Chicago. As of right now, no one throws bigger, better, more creative events than these guys. They are already helping carry some of the hottest names in the Chicago music industry, including the likes of The Backpack Buddies, Jordan V, Jason Kalendr, and more.

Here are BAM’s words to you about their upcoming second annual “One-Z Night Stand: The Bunk Bed Banger”:

Once upon a time…in minds far, far from reality…a magical fairytale event was created. A gathering of cuddly characters under one roof and one bunk. On April 1st, the Eve of Fools, The Lunatics of BaM unite to rewrite your original bedtime favorite–One-Z Night Stand: The Bunk Bed Banger only this time set in the Land of theMid to end a week of marvelous events commemorating year one. For the first time ever, we open Bamdora’s Music Box for special guest opening musical stories told by BaM’s very own lovable Casey & Joe Q from beyond the decks! Further relaxing chaos provided by Jordan V, Orville Kline, Robots on the Run, & the Backpack Buddies: Jesse Seely & Billy the Kid. These sleepy sound machines awaken to create your wildest audiological blyss. The Mid cuddlers tickle your urges turning your untamed wet dreams into a majestic reality.

“Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the Lunatics my fun to keep. If my ears should implode before I awake, I pray the Lunatics my fun to take.”

Sleep tight. Don’t let the Bam Bugs bite.
