Mad Decent Block Party at The Piazza & Official After-Party at The Barbary Aug. 7

Published on The Deli Philadelphia – Sunday, August 7, 2011

So here’s the bad news: Summer’s almost over. Sure, it doesn’t officially end until the end of September but let’s be real for a second, right? The sunshine and beach bum parties end once Labor Day rolls around. The good news, though: You can still have a blast in the meantime. And what better way to extend a giant middle finger to the end of (summer) days? Scoffin’ down street fare, kickin’ back some tasty beers, listenin’ to phat beats, and gettin’ old school at today’s Mad Decent Block Party. Being held at the Piazza in NoLibs,Diplo‘s fourth annual outdoor bash, which also hits Chicago and Los Angeles this month (its New York stop was July 30), is not your run-of-the-mill neighborhood block shindig. In addition to the street carnival-meets-hip culture vibe, it features a sick, it-ain’t-your-momma’s lineup: among other stars, you got the Mad Decent crew (Philly’s beatmaster DJ Sega, and fuzz-meets-garage monsters POPO, Australia’s sultry poptress Kito, New Jersey sound beasts Brick Bandits, and, of course, the profilic Diplo as headliner) plus the crazy cool and always-love-to-be-controversial Brooklynites Das Racist as well as Philly-based badasses Dirty South Joe & Flufftronix mixing their dubstep-meets-sweetness LUVSTEP sound. And if you’re still pumped up when the party ends at 8pm (because parties really should never end that early), make your way over to the Hollertronix after-party at the Barbary, where you’ll dance your body dead with Mad Decent Block Party performers and a slew of special guests (it’s from 10pm – 2am; $5 cover until midnight, when it becomes $10 to get in). Looks like it’s going to be another rough Monday (for those who have to work) in Philly! The Piazza, N. 2nd & Germantown Ave., 1pm-8pm (Rain or Shine), FREE, All Ages – Annamarya Scaccia
