Claude VonStroke Double Dips in Chicago, Detroit, and San Francisco in February 2019

Announces Special Two-Date Shows Winter 2019

Today, Claude VonStroke announces a new tour concept - the Double Dip Tour, which sees the Dirtybird bossman return to three of his favorite cities for a unique series of shows - Chicago, Detroit, and San Francisco.

No two shows will be the same or follow any set guidelines, rather over across each pairing, Claude VonStroke will demonstrate the versatility and eclecticism that makes him one of dance music’s most unstoppable forces. Exploring the full spectrum of house, techno, bass music, and more, the intimate crowd will be taken under the head bird’s wing for a dancefloor education you can’t get anywhere else.

The first two shows will kick off in Chicago (Feb 1st & 2nd), where Claude VonStroke will perform for the last two nights at the iconic club The Mid before it closes its doors for good. The following weekend, CVS will touch down in his home-city of Detroit (Feb 8th & 9th), where he first cut his teeth on the decks before becoming North America’s Best DJ. The tour will end with a bang in the birthplace of Dirtybird - San Francisco (Feb 21st & 22nd), playing for an exclusive crowd of 400 of the most dedicated Dirtybird fans at Halcyon.

With all venues having a capacity of less than 1,000, the Double Dip tour will provide a uniquely intimate atmosphere, where Claude has promised to deliver sets chock full of new unreleased tracks and edits for the ears of the select few who will be fortunate enough to snatch up tickets.

Accompanying the tour will be very limited edition T-Shirts and Crew Necks designed by Dirtybird and Claude VonStroke’s featured 2019 artist Charlie Immer. Immer will be designing all of VonStroke’s art work in 2019. VonStroke and Dirtybird have a long tradition of working with resident artists, notably from the low-brow surrealist movement, including Dan May, Dulk, Graham Carter, Raoul Deleo, and more.

2018 was a banner year for Claude VonStroke, earning himself the title of North America’s best DJ, debuting a brand new festival concept, The Birdhouse Festival in Chicago, gracing the cover of Mixmag’s December issue, and so much more. The Double Dip tour will mark the beginning of what will surely be an equally massive 2019.

About Claude VonStroke

Claude VonStroke created a small underground record label called Dirtybird in 2005 and grew it into a full-fledged events, clothing and music brand over the last 15 years. During this time, he has also managed to release 4 artist albums and some of the most iconic house music tracks of the last two decades. 

Most people know Claude VonStroke for his smiling DJ persona touring every major city, festival, and basement after-party around the world. But Claude has also influenced the very fabric of the dance community, A&Ring an impeccable roster of acts like Justin Martin, Fisher, Shiba San, Catz n Dogz, Riva Starr, Tim Green, Breach, Eats Everything, Walker & Royce, Shadow Child, and countless others. (And even naming a few of these artists.) Today, his Dirtybird label continues to surprise and innovate in the underground dance scene, releasing an enigmatic combination of house, funk, dirty-bass, and electronica.

VonStroke has released four original artist albums, a remix album, and a live album recorded when he closed the famed Movement Festival in his original hometown of Detroit Michigan. Some other music highlights include working on records with Bootsy Collins, Rihanna, Disclosure and Kevin Saunderson as well as a few #1 & #2 hits on Beatport.  His partnership with Green Velvet as “GET REAL” has been one of the most rewarding friendships as Claude originally modeled his career off the quirky enigmatic style of his mentor and now good friend from Chicago. 

In 2015 VonStroke brought his first festival to light called Dirtybird Campout, a unique boutique festival based on the games and activities associated with American Summer camp mixed with the best underground house and bass music in the world.  He continues to innovate and curate new events with 2 additional multi-day festivals mirroring his Birdhouse radio show in Los Angeles and Chicago and his record BBQ event series that has been going since 2003!

VonStroke also loves art, most notably pop surrealist artwork that he has commissioned for the last 7 years on Dirtybird for all of the releases.  Each year he hires a new artist and has had the pleasure of working with renowned artists such as Jeremy Fish, Dulk, Graham Carter, Dan May, Charlie Immer, Raoul Deleo and Felicia Chiao. Walking through the Dirtybird HQ in Los Angeles is like walking through an art gallery in the Wynwood district of Miami. 

A lot of his success can be attributed to a good attitude. Claude does not scowl and look mean while he DJs. He does not pretend to know everything and he truly loves his fans. He is grateful to be curating, creating and performing music for a living and he knows that the reason people go to parties is to shake their booty and have fun.
