The Illadelph Experiment

Media Title

Picture this night out: 11 DJs, three floors of dancing, five artists exhibiting live work, a B-boy/B-girl contest, a slow-jam set and lit hookahs—and it goes on ‘til 3:30 a.m.? Uh, that pretty much knocks any other Friday-night parties on their sorry asses. Even without tips on who’s spinning or promoting, The Illadelph Experiment just sounds like a badass, labyrinthine sweatfest, something you and your friends could wholeheartedly tear into alongside hordes of other grown, good-time-seeking Philadelphians, right? Luckily, its DJs include the legendary Cash Money (above), Kenny Meez, Ultraviolet, AfroDJiak, Mike Nyce, Aktive, Mr. Sonny James, Lee Jones, Lil Dave, PHSH and DJ Foxx Boogie. (Hoo boy, that’s a list!) And it’s being presented by Stacey “Flygirrl” Wilson, a fixture of Philly 360, Tastytreats, et cetera, who’s so in tune with the spirits of creativity and musicianship, she always seems to be planning successful ways to wrap this city up in absolute freshness. Wilson’s also among the the artists who’ll be on the scene too, joining Serena Saunders, Ameerah K. Art, Chuck Styles, Tone Casso and Nebulous Flair. Nice.

Philly’s DJs kill it; live art is the shit, and who doesn’t love a good hip-hop battle? With a promise to get the walls throbbing and the windows rattling, let’s hope for throwdowns of all kinds at The Illadelph Experiment—sonic, on the canvas and pop and lock-like. Show up before 11pm, and you’ll get a 50-percent admission reduction. / BILL CHENEVERT

10pm. $10-$20. Trilogy, 601 Spring Garden St. 215.454.9038. phillytrilogy.com
