Description

DJs Teri Bristol and Val “Psychobitch” Scheinpflug came of age as DJs during the late 1980s in Chicago, having been born and raised in the City’s south suburbs and North Side. They cut their chops at legendary mixed/alternative venues like Medusa’s, learning from master spinners like Mark Stephens, before developing their own inclusive gay nights at spaces like Crobar, where Bristol acted as music director for twelve years, and the duo held their infamous Glee Club party. The duo is well-regarded for its path-breaking work as house producers and DJs during the 1990s and beyond.
