[03.29.13] Tonight SPORK at Smartbar Chicago! The Spatula City Homecoming & Record Release Party w/ TOMMY LARGO, THE SOUND REPUBLIC, SHADOW PEOPLE, SCRUBFISH, T MIXWELL!


March 29, 2013 | Spork @ Smartbar, 3730 N Clark St, Chicago, IL

**Lineup Change: We’ve now added Frankie J to the bill. He will be playing with Mörk as THE SOUND REPUBLIC. This reunion set will be their first DJ set together in about 4.5 years! Don’t miss it!**

SPORK presents the Spatula City Homecoming & Record Release Party

Frankie J and John Mörk used to be in this house music group called The Sound Republic, and had this label called Spatula City Records. It’s been awhile, but they decided to make a new release for said label. Frankie and John both contributed originals to this EP and then remixed the other’s contribution. They both like it and hope you do too! Mörk + Frankie J – Are Friends Again available soon everywhere quality vinyl records are sold, and on those pesky download sites as well!

So we’re celebrating the release of Spatula City 022 and bringing in some previous Spatula City artists too. We hope you can join us for the second edition of SPORK at Smartbar on Friday 3/29…The Spatula City Homecoming & Record Release Party!
