The Gift of Music

Wow! I really hope you didn't miss last night. Paperstreet knows exactly what to do to throw a party. Great leaders surround themselves with great talent and that is exactly what they are doing right now. The Rub on 4 turntables, Spankrock and Amanda Blank and Phil Moore Brown rocked the main floor while Steven Bloodbath and Dan The Swede tore it up in the basement. So much fun and so needed with finals, hectic holidays and more. It was an oasis of sensory overload to drown out all the unnecessary noise.

Hollertronix started the weekend off right at the 700 Club on Thursday. Low Budget is there every Thursday with the hottest house party of the week. Low B had the place in a frenzy playing new tracks from his upcoming album. Diplo dropped by as well, with his new tracks while the whole place went crazy.

Friday may have been a bit ill advised.

Luckily, Saturday completely made up for it. We would consider trekking through rain and trance if every Saturday was this good. Phil Moore Brown opened up with their signature sound and had the crowd rocking.

Meanwhile, $2 beers are an excellent way to start the night.

Spankrock came on next and absolutely killed it with The Love Peace Project, booty dancers, bongo drummers, Darko and Devlin on the decks. Amanda Blank came out and blessed us with a couple tracks. Pasey Pase was there as well providing extra hype. This is definitely one show that is not to be missed. 2006 has huge things in store. Its a full on assault of beats, bass, bounce and booty. The Rub followed it up with their party rocking skills on four turntables. Meanwhile Steven Bloodbath and Dan the Swede were rocking the downstairs.

2006 is starting off correctly with a number of excellent parties with Cosmo, Pase Rock and Spankrock on the XXXplosive tour and this Simplefly party. Plus to get things started there are two new dance parties starting in the next week with Unicorns & Rainbows on Fridays and The Pop Off on Saturdays. With Low Budget, Cosmo, Brendan Bring em, Bloodbath, The Swede and more, there is a new destination for philly nightlife. Don't forget about Destroy Your Liver on Sundays either, an excellent way to celebrate the weekend with $10 open bar from 8 - 2 at the Khyber.
