The event will include 2 “rare soul” dance nights, a record fair hosted by traveling record show “Beat Swap Meet,” a soul-centric bus tour of Chicago showcasing the sights and sounds and history of soul music from our city, and a wrap up all-day dance party.

STUSA finishes off it’s weekend festivities at Maria’s for more dancing, great drinks, and brunch! Starting at 2pm on Sunday afternoon, weekender DJs will be playing their final records, saying their goodbyes, and possibly doing their last record trades. Food discounts will be offered by neighboring Pleasant House Bakery, who specialize in Cornish pasties and royal pies, and Maria’s will offer drink specials. Yum. Plus, there may be one or two big surprises in store for Sunday, so do make an effort to be there.
