The big night this weekend is Sunday. There are two major parties happening that you need to look out for.
First up is the Fool's Gold vs. Dim Mak tour at one of Philly's new favorite hang outs, The Barbary ( 951 Frankford Ave). This event brings together two of the top labels in the realm of hipster-esque music, Fool's Gold Records and Dim Mak Records, for a night of PBR drenched fun. On the wheels will be DJ A-Trak (Fool's Gold label head, champion turntablist and Kanye West's dj), Steve Aoki (Dim Mak label head and one of the heirs to the Benihana fortune), Sinden and Sammy Bananas. Expect to hear a mixture of everything from Rod Lee to Bloc Party.
If the vibe of the Barbary party isn't your thing, then head over to Silk City (5th & Spring Garden St.) for Hot Peas and Butter. This is a night of 7" vinyl, rare grooves, and lots of soul. Legendary Philly turntable wiz DJ Cash Money and Dj Skeme Richards of the Rocksteady Crew keep the speakers pumping full of some of the funkiest music ever made.
