City Bisco After Party Mania
After a long awaited announcement the official City Bisco after party lineups are finally here. Deathwaltz Media Group Philly’s finest procurer of music has put together a two nights of auditory bliss. From the looks of it, the lineup was soooo worth the wait! With music until 6 AM there is something for everyone. As if the line up for City Bisco was not enough…..

Friday nights lineup of LTJ Bukem, DrFameus, Biodiesel, and tweener sets from Abakus looks incredible and looks hard to top!
Do we really need to you about DrFameus? Chances are if you are going to City Bisco (unlike Camp Bisco) you know who DrFameus is. That being said we know if we don’t spell it out for you there will be someone who says, “but I really have no clue who ‘Doctor Famous’ is.” So for all fo you n00bs it is the side project of Allen Aucoin the ginger haired dummer of the Disco Biscuits. If you’ve never seen him play without the band before, if you like talented musicians showing off their craft then his set will be for you. Expect some wild robotic drumming that will make you feel like you have just walked through a portal [to and empty head?] 500 years into the future and the worlds greatest drum machine is playing for you, thats Allen on a bad day.
Biodiesel a supergrouesque collaboration between Johnny Rabb and Clay Parnell. Johnny Rabb a word class drummer to say the least and Clay Parnell of Brothers past bring you some tasty electronic music every time they hit the stage. Having just released a critically acclaimed EP this year Biodiesel seems posed to make moves.
Abakus is one of many faces to the music producing wizard Russ Davies ( son of Dave Davies founding member of The Kinks). Drawing from new and old influences he builds his style of fusion breaks, dub, techno , trance and elcetro that will get the crowd That Much Closer To The Sun! Those that were lucky enough (unlike myself) to catch him at CampBisco know that his sets are filled with pure joy and down right amazing!
Saturday night looks like straight FIRE! With Oliver $, Damn Right! (with special guests…our minds are running wild with this one especially after they rocked the Brooklyn Bowl a few months ago with Barber), Horizon Wireless and tweener sets from Business Casual Disco!
Here is one of Damn Right!’s new tracts All I ever Wanted and will be on the upcoming EP “All the Colors.”
There is little we can say about Horizon Wireless that we have not already said in writing. Sensible Reason has a special place for Horizon Wireless in our hearts. We like to think of our selves as a Wireless tower if you will, rebroadcasting to the network. But for those of you unfamiliar with this intergalactic psy-breaks duo, we will learn you right now. A producer drummer duo they have toured and played tirelessly the past few years to expand their network of faithful subscribers. Their high energy sets start at a roaring whisper and build to an tastefully orchestrated explosion that rivals the voracity of Mount Vesuvius combine with the sweet sensualness of champaign room designed by Ceelo Green. Without being too cliche its clear that their Horizon is Wireless.
Then shit got serious with the addition of Business Casual Disco! I imagine that BCD was from a time far ago that was catapulted into the future then boomeranged back to us now. With Nu Disco, House and electro all rolled up into one tasty bassed laced bomb that gets your Funkin body movin and groovin on the dance floor! It’s about to get weird at The Blockley! This trio is all business and will keep us all casual with energizing sets all Saturday night long!
The Blockley sits on land, and in a building, with long and rich history. The name is borrowed from the Blockley Almshouse, a poorhouse/insane asylum that stood on the site of The Blockley beginning in 1835. The entirety of West Philadelphia began as Blockley Township, and the area housed a variety of the city’s indigent population.
The Blockley opened its doors in late 2009, and has quickly built a loyal following of live music fans and acts, gaining a reputation as the best party venue in Philly. Since summer of 2010, the club has been privileged to host an incredible collection of talented musical acts, among them: Toots & the Maytals, Beth Hart, Big Gigantic, Black Thought & ?uestlove (of The Roots), Stephen Marley, Tim Reynolds (Dave Matthews Band collaborator), Conspirator, White Panda, The Psychedelic Furs, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk, EOTO, DJ Jazzy Jeff, Tommy Conwell & the Young Rumblers, Barrington Levy, and many more.
The building that houses The Blockley was home to The Chestnut Cabaret from 1979-1995. The Cabaret was in the same sentence with the Spectrum as iconic music venues in Philadelphia during the 80’s and early 90’s. The longtime staple played host to The Ramones, Nirvana, BB King, Parliament-Funkadelic, The Hooters, Phish, Dave Matthews Band, Keith Richards, Iggy Pop, and countless other legends.
