Tons of Local DJs Rock Claychella This Weekend

claychella.jpgIf you've ever been to a party in Wicker Park, then you've probably seen Clayton Hauck--flat rimmed baseball cap, ponytail, and always armed with a camera, he's there to take your picture and make you famous. Because besides being an amazing photographer with a talent for catching the most stunning candid shots, he's the man behind the website everyoneisfamous.

Well, for one day, Clayton gets to be the one who's famous. This Saturday he throws his annual all-day birthday bash, Claychella, at Lincoln Hall (2424 N. Lincoln Ave) with upwards of 30 local DJs playing throughout the day including Flosstradamus, The Hood Internet, Bald E. and Moneypenny, just to name a few. Beginning at noon, this party will have a "photo booth" manned by Ryan Mitchell and drink specials galore, plus we're told to watch for more surprises throughout the day.

If you're over 21, the shindig is free til 10pm. After that it's just $5. Fall in the 18-20 category? Free til 5pm, then $10. Be sure to click on the link below for a full list of DJs and MCs after the jump. For more information, visit
