Claude VonStroke! Fluid 10th Anniversary! Man Man in Chinatown NYC!
Well, that subject pretty much sums it up for tonight. For real, it's a light night in terms of quantity, but holy $#\% the quality is straight, uncut, 100%. First up, it's a special night in Philly, as South Street club Fluid celebrates its 10th Anniversary with an a-may-zing night of dance music. Claude VonStroke makes his first Philly appearance, which is cause for celebration on its own. We've posted about him here at Pound for Pound, dude is absolutely killing it with his filthy, booty techno or whatever you want to call it. His live sets are just as highly regarded. Combine that with Dave P and Diamond Girl of Hands and Knees and you have blast-off. RSVP for reduced $5 admission, this is a night to remember, Philadelphia. Don't believe me, believe this dude who wrote a preview of Fluid's 10th Anniversary week for the Philadelphia Weekly.
-Before you hit up High Voltage, head down to Chinatown for special concert by Man Man. For anyone who knows the Philly band, it should come as no surprise that this show takes place at a dim sum palace after a 12 course dinner. Unfortunately, the dinner reservations are all taken, but you can still hit up the show afterwards for $10, starting at 9pm. I caught them at the Bowery in the winter and it was one of the best shows I've seen, in spite of having to hide in the back of the hall out of fear that my ex-gf was in attendance. This is what I'm talking about NYC!
-It looks like that's about it, but rest assured that this weekend looks like the weekend that will never die. So much happening, music coming up later tonight.
