So Jhn Rdn bought The Barbary a former punk rock etc club and is turning it into a club of awesomeness. Think Johnny Brendas plus Fluid or thats at least how it sounds to me. From The Inquirer:
The downstairs Barbary will be for monthly events, and Redden challenges “DJs and promoters to come up with ways to make their parties better than they’ve been at any other venue.” Upstairs, set to open next year, will be a “dive bar” venue of a different name that will have booths, food and a jukebox.
“In my ideal world, the club would be a worker-owned syndicate where profit would go to support the abolition of the prison system and fund radical social movements,” Danielle Redden says.
For now, though, brother and sister will settle for making the Barbary a dance-and-hang space “where people feel comfortable having meaningful social interactions, where people can experience joy,” Danielle says.
Tonight is the grand opening with a whole slew of DJ’s. Saturday sees The Bounce with Emynd & Bo Bliz and The Barbary MySpace is now updated with the next week of shows.
Busdriver and Daedalus at the Khyber (downtempo left field hip hop stuff that Casi G was way too into like 2 years ago and is trying to drag me out to, also Seg would love this but doesn’t remember them. Dude, its Ninja Tune isn’t that the holy grail?)
If you didn’t know already Exit Philadelphia is a Skateshop and Lifestyle Boutique located in Fishtown. They carry all the hottest skate and street brands around, tons of sneakers, tees, hats, etc. I also personally think the owner is a super rad dude to come in and shoot the shit with, and but him beers everytime I see him out… BUT HEY that’s just me.
But for the next 3 FRIDAYS they are having huge sales to get your ass ready for the Holidays… Great time to get your loved ones some fly ass high tops, and wood to push around on…
