Description

Harry Cross is a co-founder and resident DJ of the Men’s Room party. Currently he is resident of the Loose Ends party at Smart Bar, the Overly Drumatic rooftop party at the Ace Hotel, and Witch Finger at random warehouses. He is also Friday night resident of Chicago’s Steamworks Bathhouse. Cross’ weekly functions at gay bathhouses and leather bars keep his sound drenched in the sweaty and smoky corners of house, techno, breaks, acid, dub and disco.
