sebastienleger 2.jpg Are you well rested? No, are you really well rested? Don't take offense - we're not trying to call you out or anything, it's just that it's one more day until the weekend and we don't like to see our readers trudging into it. Especially when Saturday promises ample opportunities to boogie. We've got Only Children spinning in Logan Square, Designer Drugs taking over Lincoln Hall, and, as always, our weekly go-to spots. What's got us brimming with excitement, however, is Sebastien Leger, who will bring his incalculable prowess of house and tech to Smart Bar. Of course, it is our Weekend Dance Party pick.

Sebastien Leger hails from France and has been around since the late '90s. He's quite the prolific DJ/producer, releasing multiple mixtapes and productions ever year, on top of touring all over the world. This affinity for output has put Leger as one of the premier house and techno DJs in the world, and his set Saturday will be a nice escape for those trying to get away from those pesky things we call jobs. Joining Leger on the decks will be Jordan Bradley and Lady Foursquare. So, rest up, kiddies: it's time for a bender.

Sebastien Leger is Saturday, Smart Bar, 3730 N Clark, 10 p.m., $10+, 21+
