Kaskade, Sex Cult, & Decibels: We Make The Rounds
Thursday, June 28th was packed with shows in Philadelphia and Independent Philly was all over the place to catch as many of them as possible.
The evening started early (630pm) at the Festival Pier at Penn’s Landing where America’s #1 DJ (2011) Kaskade rolled into town with his “Freaks of Nature” tour (with support from Kap Slap, Fareoh, and Alvin Risk).
Kaskade brought all of the freaks out of the woodwork for this one as thousands of fans rolled into the Festival Pier, decked out in a wide array of crazy gear.
When the all-ages event wrapped up at 11pm, our next stop was The Barbary for the debut of a new monthly party called Sex Cult. The 18+ party, headlined by Designer Drugs, also featured support from Aaron Ruxbin, Skitsnygg, and PLS DNT STP.
There was a nice sized crowd on hand rocking out on the dance floor downstairs and the music was definitely on point.
At 1am it was time to make more moves and head to LiT Ultra Bar for Decibels 2. Our third EDM event of the night featured some excellent local talent on the decks. Johnny V, LoveCityDJs, and Dubsef all took their turn throwing down for the crowd (many of whom had come from the Kaskade show). The dance floor was packed and everyone was dancing and having a great time (ourselves included).
We’d fully intended to make a fourth stop at the Actual Records late-night after-party for Sex Cult, but sometimes at 330am, you just have to call it quits. We hear it was bonkers though (as per usual).
