Well it’s snuck up on us all again but this month’s Handshakes is going to be in full effect.
The Black Amex boys have one of their favorite Denver DJ’s and all around badass friends joining them this month in the booth, DJ Babyshoe. You might have seen Babyshoe’s name on, well, just about everything cool in Denver because he has his hands in everyone’s pie. Running the Dance Pile dance nights at Deer Pile, Fresh Produce at the Meadowlark and even taking the helm from Tonyo at Guilty Pleasures, DJ Babyshoe has Denver in a headlock and is giving it the longest, loving noogie ever.
With a soft spot for the disco and funky grooves that run so deep in Black Amex, he’s a perfect fit for Handshakes.
The party goes off on Saturday night at Milk bar with a $5 cover that gets you into all three rooms. Which means in addition to Handshakes, you get goth night and the new wave retro room as well! Three parties for the price of one. Even better still, if you show up early (before 10pm) you can skip the cover altogether. Either way, come down and get freaky.
Check out the mix below for a taste of things to come!

Ark Industries has a long standing tradition of small business and entrepreneurship going back to the founder Noah Benjamin’s great grandfather, Chas Benjamin. Chas got his start driving a wagon around the prairie’s of Calgary selling clothing and dry goods to the settlers and natives across Alberta. This later led to Chas opening a men’s wear store in Calgary in the 1920s. It is this history and passion for clothing that is apparent in Ark Industries products and philosophies.
Ark Industries was founded in 1995 after Noah spent year’s buying and selling vintage clothing to earn money while in school. Their first few products were all made from second hand fabrics and re-worked vintage clothing. Built on a philosophy of re-working vintage and quality materials when they can has resulted in an incredible line of re-worked vintage Japanese dresses and Ipad sleeves made from recycled leather. Look for their beautifully worn re-worked leather jackets coming this Fall.

We just got in our Spring order from Topo Designs! It was hand delivered by one of their friendly employees because not only is this line local, it’s hyper local. Their offices are just blocks from Fancy Tiger and we couldn’t be happier to have such creative neighbors.
