Hot Mass Turns 4 w/ Claude Young & Tony Fairchild @ Hot Mass - 12/11/2016 < 21+ w/ ID // limited capacity, please arrive early >> Here they are, four years later. Walls have come down, booths have gone up. You helped them build a new sound system in only three months. But most importantly, they've built a family of hundreds that we didn't have before. To celebrate, they have a very special guest – Pittsburgh favorite Claude Young. One of the best DJs on the planet, their long-time friend, and someone who they credit with helping to kick off this current era in PGH. And, it's his first time stepping foot in their club. If you have seen him level a party before, you know that this is the perfect match for the space that we've built together. Humanaut resident and Midwest Fresh co-founder Tony Fairchild will handle the opening duties.[more]
