One week after Electric Zoo brings the biggest names in contemporary house music—Avicii, Sebastian Ingrosso, Hardwell, etc.—to Randall’s Island, fans looking to dig deeper into the genre can pack into a much smaller venue, Williamsburg’s Cameo Gallery, hidden speakeasy-style on the other side of the Lovin’ Cup Café, to hear the genre’s godfather go to work. Long story short, after DJing around New York with his childhood friend Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles moved west to spin his take on disco and r&b at Chicago club the Warehouse, the venue from which the music takes its name. Tonight, he comes home to play alongside Chris Love & AB Logic of the Sullivan Room’s underground-leaning SOUP party.
