The Prairie Cartel Hold Up Schubas

Scott Lucas and Blake Smith of the Prairie Cartel brought the electronic funk, experimental techno, and Hall & Oates when they DJed Chicago’s Schubas. Playing the role of both mix master and bartender, Lucas — also half of hard-hitting duo Local H — alternated between pouring shots of Southern Comfort to spinning songs such as “I Wanna Be Adored” by the Stone Roses and Human League’s “Don’t You Want Me.” After Lucas lent his patrons a concerned ear to earn his tips, he lit the room on fire by performing his band’s electro-dance rager “Keep Everybody Warm.” ANGIE MALDONADO / PHOTOS BY JAMES MONTELEONE
