Then, Friday night…
Tailgaters is gonna keep the TV’s on for the third period of the Blackhawks game so you can decide if you wanna watch dudes chasing a little puck around or booties bouncin’.
This past weekend is a blur of awesome. We raged all night at Rivers Casino, and after seeing the craziest crowd we’ve ever had there, we had a real party down in Champaign at Fat City. As much as we knew not to expect any less than a straight-up throw down in tha ‘paign, we didn’t expect to see such a familiar face visiting the crew @ The Cube.
Think back to the beginning of house music in Chicago (from the 1980s, into the 90s, and now being featured on several singles in the 2000s)! Fast Eddie paid the crew a visit while the party hit the cube. If you’ve seen our entire show before, you’ve seen our classic Booty Shake Contests and – probably without even realizing it – have heard some of this guy’s killer beats.
Check it: Booty Call.
We’re always excited to see familiar faces, but Fast Eddie sharing his night with us was super flattering.

This past weekend is a blur. And here’s why:
…I know we played at Rivers Casino on Friday night – thank you to everyone who came and hung out all night. We know you have options every weekend, especially in the summertime, and we always appreciate the welcome we get when we hit up The Cube. Those are some of our favorites too. WE get to watch YOU drink your faces off because our green room is so stocked up with Redbull and water, we couldn’t fit the Boones Farm in the fridge if we wanted to.
Before I get into the details of what I can remember of Saturday night, lemme just tell ya’ll right now: I miss college. I’m still recovering, but wouldn’t change a thing.
Saturday’s after party at Joe’s on Weed St. KICKED ASSES EVERYWHERE! Salt N Pepa still know how to own the stage. They seriously took over – no surprise that they’re a couple of our favorites to cover, right??
Thank you to Joe’s Bar and everyone who came to join the party…and the dancers for letting us into the green room for pizza scraps and a clean bathroom…and the bartenders for putting up with us, because as much as I don’t remember every conversation, I’m sure we threw some random weirdness out there because it’s just what happens when drinking’s involved. DUH!
Our super sober casino show Friday night threw us all into party-mode for Saturday (not that we aren’t always in party-mode, but this was like…serious business and we needed to take care of it). Wrigleyville already has this crazy effect on people that makes them feel like they need to drink. Clearly, you put Wrigleyville Summerfest and Too White Crew together and you get a handful of “that just happened” moments without regret. Not for nothing, the crowd kept right up with us. Each Fly Girl was bobbing for 40s.
I may not be in college anymore but I’ll take you to school. This was only the beginning of the end…
Alright guys, summer’s half over. This weekend starts our non-stop August schedule, and I don’t think we could’ve closed out July in any other way.
It was a perfect night at CD & ME last Thursday. The weather was mild, the crowd was hyped, and the drinks never stopped. Even the bugs left us all alone while the droppin’ was hot. It’s always a great welcome when we hit up the south side, and Frankfort, you didn’t hold back.
…after all the crazy we had in those two days, I think I can speak for everyone by saying “WE MADE IT!” We’re totally recovered and ready to jump into the next handful of busy weekends.
And huge props to Rebate for filling in on bass this past weekend and helping us get through it. You rock, dude! Thank you, thank you!
Keep in touch with us and show us your pics on Instagram and Twitter (@toowhitecrew, #toowhitecrew). We love hearing your party stories and checking your evidence. Also, if you haven’t yet, join the crew on Facebook and make sure you join our events for when we’re gonna be by you again.
We’re making our return to The Cube at Rivers Casino in Des Plaines, IL. Don’t worry. They don’t allow us to take those incriminating pictures at casinos, so come out and get your crazy on.
Saturday, the crew is polishing off the weekend with the Woodstock Music Fest by DC Cobbs. We know the ‘burbs like to party, so even the shorties will throw down with us. Yes, bring the kids and show ’em what real hip hop was.
OH! And look what just came in the mail today. Ladies, prepare…
