Maybe you need to escape the fam, or maybe you just need to dance off a few extra calories, after all that feasting. Either way, you'll be glad to have this little gem in your back pocket this Friday. Boys Noize, master of electronically generated beats that consume your body with the overwhelming urge to shake it, is coming to The Mid for the bargain basement price of $10. Alexander Ridha (that's his real name, y'all) will shower you with the electro-genius he typically saves for remixing Daft Punk, N.E.R.D., and other giants. Collect all of your friends who won't need a plane ticket to get themselves to your Thanksgiving fun, and sweat it out with other dance-hungry Chicagoans this Friday.
The Mid, 306 North Halsted Street (at Fulton Street) 312-265-3990.
