The Last Illegal with Abdu Ali 

When: Fri., Jan. 20, 10 p.m. 2017
Price: $10

All good things come to an end, and so it goes with Party Illegal's taste-making series of dance parties. For more than four years, the wild, inclusive monthly party spearheaded by a handful of ambitious Durham deejays has been a reliable fixture in the Bull City, booking diverse, genre-agnostic electronic lineups for a queer dance community that was largely being ignored by other regional programming. Illegal's local curation was always excellent, and its headliners were often a who's who of underground talent from around the country, with alumni including Philly's DJ Haram, New Jersey's UNIIQU3, and NYC's Jubilee. This final bash looks to maintain Illegal's high standards of quality and eclecticism with the queer leftfield rapper Abdu Ali, who hails from Baltimore. Ali stews elements of the city's club music with an aggressive, near-athletic vocal delivery for a sweaty, forward-thinking take on noise rap. Illegal's organizers aren't going anywhere, and we hope that the end of the dance party series means the rise of something even better. Still, don't miss your chance to rage one last time. —David Ford Smith
