You don’t have to wait until Halloween this year to dust off that perfect beaded dress or press that white tie, because our National Constitution Center will become a swanky speakeasy this Thursday, October 18th and no, you don’t have to go through any telephone booths to find this one! Just make your way to the Center’s Grand Hall Lobby for The National Constitution Center’s Bootleggers Ball from 5:30 until 8:30. The night will be fixed with all the musings and allure of doing something you know you shouldn’t.
Transport back to the twenties and do the Charleston! You will be surrounded by Jazz Age music, courtesy of the Ben Mauger Orchestra, and people learning the Lindy Hop right next to The Mixed Pickles Vintage Dance Co. Let those inhibitions go, it’s Prohibition night! And don’t forget to take a themed photo op, because looking at those the next day are always the most fun.
All this jazz will be $35 for museum members and $40 for non-members (ages 21+). Reservations include advanced access to American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition BEFORE anybody else even gets to view it. Call 215.409.6700 for reservations or head right here.
To celebrate turning four years old, 8static is putting together a chiptune show featuring Bit Shifter (NYC), Radlib (CT), an0va (PHL), and Nikola Whallon (DET). Visual artists NO CARRIER (NYC), Chromacle (PHL) and animal style (PHL) will be acompanying each musical performance as a special treat. Plus, the show will start off with the ritual open mic event which encourages any new artist to perform a song for the crowd! The party continues into the late night with an official afterparty at The Institute bar featuring tunes by Decktonic (NJ). This showcase will be unlike any other 8static event. RSVP here!
7pm - Open Mic
Blonde Gang are a hip-hop/pop collective from Philadelphia with serious attitude. Not only does their music embrace creativity and individuality, but their fashion sense promotes these qualities as well.

Beyond just the music, Blonde Gang members Lyve (Evyl Ot Laer), Kidd Sweeny, Bok Nero, Plane Walker, Shy the Social Misfit, Jamiil, Reese, and Sik are working to start a positive group movement that welcomes social outsiders looking for a comfortable home. Sik, the group’s visual creator, has a printed clothing line, Amekaji, which has been gaining fans all over Philly.
