Punk Rock Flea Market

December 15, 2009

So I’m pretty much going to dedicate my posts on here to the new and upcoming/ old must-dos in Phildelphia.

The Punk Rock Flea Market is something that I literally get upset over if I miss it. You can pretty much do ALL of your Christmas Shopping here!

It’s run by R5 Productions which is an awesome DIY company that is dedicated (and accomplished this very well) to providing Philadelphia with affordable concerts and shows and giving the under 21 crowd an opportunity to see bands that do not usually play all ages venues. These guys fueled my High School fun!

The Punk Rock Flea Market has been going on for some 5-6 years now. There is a Summer and Holiday edition. They use the money from the VERY small donation to help keep up with equiptment costs and keep the All Ages shows running. All without giving in to the evils of Live Nation!

Don’t worry, you don’t need to be Punk Rock to go to this! There are tables of anything you can imagine, vintage clothes, art work, hand made jewelry, local Philly clothing companies, baked treats to keep you going throughout the day! This event has gotten so big that what used to be a one day extravaganza has made it to two days!

Not only is this Flea Market the best/coolest/filled with crazy talent it helps support a cause that I believe in! If you find yourself with nothing to do in Philadelphia on Saturday December 19 – Sunday December 20th, now you know what to do!

It will be held at the Starlight Ballroom which is on 9th street just south of Spring Garden St. See you there!


4 AM

December 1, 2009

Hey Girl Hey – from Philly!

The first Friday of the month always brings about some crazy awesome times in Philly from gallery openings to parties, every corner you turn there is something to do.

Dirty and Jay Yo’s first Friday party is definitely the next big thing. Something that is going to last because it always brings a fun and fresh vibe every month!

Some notable guests of 4AM are: Matt & Kim, Holy Ghost, La Riots, Dj Sega, Yo Majesty, Drop The Lime, In Flagranti, Death Set, Heidi, Sammy Bananas and upcoming guest King Britt 1.08.10

4AM is a party that Philly pretty much just needs!

It has an underground vibe, on the late night tip for a diverse crowd. DJs cater to a crowd that enjoys the deeper and  more popular sounds of House/Techno/Indie music. 4AM wants to satify the musical tastes of young and old party goers but still expand on and push the musical boundaries. Also just having a great fucking time.

“We encourage popping your PBR all over the crowd on the dancefloor, Dancing till Dawn and just being cool from the inside out.” – Dirty

The new club 4AM has started to take over, Samba, is huge and perfect for a party at this level. Also, the party actually goes to 4AM!

Can’t make it this Friday? That’s okay because every month it is just going to get bigger and better.
