All 750 tickets have been given away to the final entrant into the Red Bull Public Assembly contest tomorrow with Simplefly presenting Amanda Blank live with Devlin & Darko, Cosmo Baker, Eli Escobar and Emynd & Bo Bliz. For those that did not get tickets, 5151 is offering up limited guest list spots. Simply sign up on the list below and you can enter the ticket line. Get there early regardless because Woodys is going to be at capacity.
Red Bull Public Assembly is coming to Philly to find out who throws the best party. There were originally 3 competitors vying for the chance to throw an all expense paid party at CMJ in NYC this Fall. However, it appears that one has fell through.
The youngest entry in the competition is Jay Yo and his production company Simplefly. Young Jay Yo has picked an all star line up with Philly’s own Amanda Blank headlining and performing live with Baltimore Bass Connection DJ’s Devlin & Darko. Not content, he has added 2 heavyweight NYC dj’s Eli Escobar and Philly’s own Cosmo Baker. Rounding out the experience will be Mad Decent’s own System D-128 on visuals. It all happens Tuesday September 22nd at Woodys, 202 S 13th. The event is free but you must have a ticket. Tickets are available now at Fresh Melt Water in the Piazza and wherever you see Jay in the streets. It’s a Red Bull night, so Red Bull & Stoli are $3 all night.

Little Miss Amanda Blank is nearly ready to drop her debut album, I Love You, and AD Amorosi from the Philadelphia Citypaper recently caught up with her to talk to her about her past, present and future.
“To me, this record is a Philly thing, about my neighborhood, really, and all my friends. Sometimes when I listen to it, I’m not even sure if people outside of Germantown will get it. Sometimes I’m still just that same hood rat on the corner.”
The article reveals a shy side to Amanda, one that you might expect given the length of time since we all spazzed out at her verse on Bmore Gutter Music or how about the Hollertronix reunion at the Mummers Museum or at the Pop Off Shack. So many good times and it seems like so long ago. I guess it has been 4 years since Gutter Music dropped. Congratulations Amanda!
The Major Lazer album is out!!! Diplo and Switch’s take on dancehall concept album hit the streets Tuesday, June 16. Their album features Santigold, Lex, Dr. Evil, Mr. Vegas, T.O.K., Amanda Blank, Nina Sky, Ricky Blaze, Vybz Kartel, Leftside and more. Get the CD with signed booklets (while supplies last) from Insound. Buy on iTunes (i hate iTunes links, search it), from the Major Lazer store or at fine US retailers, UK release comes out in a couple weeks. Above is the Obey x Major Lazer limited edition graphic appearing on grey tees only available limited edition direct from Obey. If you’re looking for Major Lazer in Philly, check them out this Friday with A-Trak and Drop the Lime at the Electric Factory, otherwise they’ll be touring throughout the US and Europe.
Cool and rather weird video. The music is kind of an afterthought with so much going on. It’s more like a soundtrack for a video than a music video. Can barely hear Amanda’s verse. The Spirit of Apollo out now.
Brand new artist from the South Bronx named June jumps on a remixed Sexy Motherfucker with Amanda Blank. This track is featured on June’s upcoming mixtape All Mixed Up with Cipha Sounds dropping tomorrow.
