Sundae Block Party #195

Media Title

Ah, West Philly: We’ve finally arrived. My beloved ‘hood can now count itself among the formidable ground on which Lee Jones has forged his legendary Sundae parties for the past 11 years, eight or nine of them internationally, joining booming burgs in France, Puerto Rico and Brazil. The lore began right here in Philly, though, where Jones and Co. debuted at the Art Alliance, an opening night that attracted a whopping 33 revelers. Pioneers, though, is what those initial attendees were, helping to set a dance floor afire that would practically alight the world on its travels. Next month, Sundae hits Sydney, Australia, adding to an admirable history that includes local residencies at Shampoo, Comcast Plaza, the Piazza and Morgan’s Pier before planting in its current Silk City hub.

Before our hero hits the airport again, a festive, all-day, BYOB block party—and do we ever mean party—is taking place at Sundae’s furthest-west local locale. Set to spin are Jones himself, Francisco Collazo, Del and DJ, the gents who’ll not only loan the sweaty afternoon even more heat, but cap off the late-night after-party at Silk City from 10pm to 3am. The main event’s at the former Wall Street International building, so you can’t miss it. Take SEPTA’s 10 trolley, and you’re there in a flash, with a designated driver already built in.
