Cancel your plans for Friday, February 8 because you’re going to want to head over to The Fire to check out one of our favorite Philly based artists, Dewey Decibel.

The award winning graphic designer/illustrator and hip hop artist will be performing live along with The People and Hennessey Bonfire.  If you haven’t checked out this triple-threat, you ought to because this guy has got some serious talent. Just check out his latest single “Love” from his most recent album Son of a Beach – it’s a great jam with some equally quality visuals. 

The show starts at 8 pm. You can purchase tickets here.
