Thank Ya!

Thurs., Dec. 23, 10pm. $10. 18+ With DJ Craze, JuJu + Mental Sharp. Emerald City, 460 N. Second St. 215.413.2500. www.substitution.net

Nestled within Philly's D&B community is a vibrant jungle scene ready to contend with the rest of the world--at least that's what the folks over at Substitution want you to think. It would be easy to dismiss this contention as blind dedication, but these nightlife organizers may have a point. Take Substitution's Thank Ya! party, a round-robin competition to select the best D&B movers and shakers both in and outside Philly. The pre-party begins online, where people can submit their votes, and the competition culminates in one frenetic night of plummeting basslines and crazed jungle dance-hop, with guests DJ Craze and JuJu on the wheels as winners are announced. But it's the contestants who make or break the concept. Nominees include world-renowned Dieselboy, lauded MCs Armanni and Sharpness, and the omnipresent duo Karl K and Kaos. Such a collection of names in one city is downright remarkable. This town best get appreciating before they take a hint and disappear. (Suzann Vogel)

“You probably heard the news that Christmas is the deadliest day of the year for Americans. Researchers speculate it's because people feel too busy or festive to go to the hospital if they're feeling sick.”
