It's the end of the week and it's time to Live, Play and GO all out! Find the best parties, community events, benefit galas and more this weekend in LGBTQ Chicago on GoPride.com. 

Photo: International DJ Joe Pacheco – known for his tribal and progressive house sound, as well as tech, disco house, deep house, trance and techno – returns to Chicago this Saturday, March 11 to headline Hydrate Nightclub. Set begins at 11pm. 

Pacheco, a New York native who now lives in Fort Lauderdale, told GoPride.com that every time he travels for work, he carries a simple motto: “Come for the party, stay for the culture.”

On his wardrobe:

“People really enjoy the fact that suits are part of my attire as a DJ. What most people don't know is … before I became a DJ, I graduated from the Fashion Institute of Technology for accessories design, so a fashion influence has always been part of my identity. Most of the bowties I wear for work are pieces I've designed; it was a beautiful full-circle moment where I was able to incorporate all aspects of my life and move forward in my full truth.”
