03.22.12D'lectable Music & Lady D Host New Night in Chicago
For Immediate Release
Jerry’s Wicker Park Hosts All New DJ and Dessert Themed Weekly Party
Chicago--Jerry’s Wicker Park, the place for cosmic sandwiches and drinks, welcomes DLCTBL NYTZ (Delectable Nights) to its weekly attractions. This new sweet spot for Thursdays will premiere April 5th and run every Thursday thereafter. Featuring complimentary champagne and delectable edibles, a deluxe dessert bar treats partygoers from 10pm until all libations and confections are devoured. Deejays play till closing time. Decadence is the mood and as Marie Antoinette may (or may not) have said, “Let them eat cake!”
In partnering with Jerry’s, Chicago’s dance music queen and Lollapalooza 2011 artist, DJ Lady D (Darlene Jackson, owner of D’lectable Music), takes the cake in establishing the first dessert themed weekly dance party in Wicker Park, nay Chicago. Each week Lady D curates a night of classy fabulousness starting with the Sweet Nothings Open Bar, where attendees can get their champagne for nothing and their sugar rush for free courtesy of Jerry’s and more local bakeries. Think cakes, gourmet chocolates, truffles, pies, donuts… Lady D had a vision of whipped cream and other opulent delights and Jerry’s saw that vision and raised.
When it comes to sound there will be a steady stream of guest music selectors that hearken to Chicago’s rich house and techno music history. April will draw upon the talents of well loved DJ’s Mark Grant (4/5), Ron Carroll (4/12), John Simmons (4/19) and Paul Johnson (4/26). Be ready for anything and everything from house to jazz to new wave to disco when it comes to seducing the crowd onto the dance floor. Accompanied by opening DJ Jevon Jackson and Percussionist/Drummer-in-residence, Ben Halen, this live element can only increase the electricity in the air.
Visually, Jerry’s already retains a sexed-up quality with high ceilings, black chandeliers, plush booths and warm wood finishes. Add to that a variety of transformative visual artists and you begin to get the picture. We'll be showcasing stunning art from such visual artists as Hoyun Son, Shelly Howard and Levar Artybridge to name a few.
Creating the night’s drink special, appropriately named The Saint D’lectable, was a piece of cake for co-collaborators Lady D and Jerry’s manager, Trey E. This potent potable consists of Prosecco, Saint Germain (a liqueur containing elderberry flower), a splash of soda and a super secret ingredient. The specialty of the house will be offered at the nice price of $5 all night long.
More drink specials come in the form of a selection of $4 drafts and the winning combo of a whisky shot and a beer for a mere $6. Moreover, the kitchen will remain open until 11pm for that late night bite serving up those mouth watering sandwiches that have made Jerry’s famous.
As the season moves on expect the unexpected from movie screenings, trunk shows, performance art, food trucks, experiential installations and more. Lady D casts a wide net of associations across the world and plans to call upon her many friends in the creative industries to make DLCTBL NYTZ the Thursday night destination that everyone will crave.
Jerry’s is located at 1938 W. Division (at Damen). DLCTBL NYTZ kicks off Thursday April 5 2012 from 10pm-2am. Early arrival is suggested.
03.22.12Saturday Nights Just Got Better

08.29.08Lady D presents Nick Maurer
Lady D just cemented a deal with former lead singer of the Greenskeepers, Nick Maurer, for the first single to be released from his solo project in the works. With this release and more, Lady D and partner Steve Koutso gear up for the relaunch of D'lectable Music after an extended hiatus.
"Beautiful Person" is an eloquent story of love from one soul to another, sung as only Nick can fashion. First class remixes from DJ Sneak, Wally Callerio and Nick himself make this the next fine release in the "Lady D Presents" series to come out for D'lectable.
Lady D has been giving Sneak's mix the rounds for a minute now to ridiculous effect and you best be sure these bangers will stay in the crate for months to come. Keep an open ear for this tune!

Lady D and Ron Carroll collaborate to create the hot new song, "You Rock My World". Remixes in the works from Diz and more. Look for this exciting new release on an international label coming soon! Until then, catch a preview in the Listen section.
