Flaunt: Willyum at Liaison Room (Halloween Costume Party)

Halloween falls on a Tuesday this year, but this weekend is still a huge for parties, For active nightlife people, this is a hard weekend to compete. Flaunt at Front Street Cafe saw a great turnout regardless of the event competition.

Flaunt: Willyum at Liaison Room (Halloween Costume Party)

My boo was going to DJSC at Kung Fu Necktie last night, which was right across the street from Front Street Cafe. Good for me because then I got to conveniently party hop. DJSC is always such a good party, and people seemed to dress up in costume a bit more than at Flaunt (no shade, I didn’t wear a costume last night). It was great seeing so many friends last night at DJSC and dancing to some Smiths songs.

The Liaison room at Front Street Cafe is new with the renovations. It’s a medium-sized room with a great space for dancing. WhiteRice DJ duo started the night off proper with some stellar deep house. Also, side note, honestly I am pretty obsessed with deep house, and it’s incredible how many Philly DJ’s have such impeccable taste in the genre.

Willyum is a very active DJ in the scene, I’m always seeing him on flyers. It’s possible I have seen him DJ before I just can’t recall when. Holy hell, his set was INCREDIBLE. Even when I was taking a breather or getting a drink, I could not stop moving. He played some really cool Motown/Disco sounding mixes within his deep set and it all blended together so well. It was a great crowd of people at the event as well. Not too crowded, but enough people to create a fun and energetic event. I also was feeling all the witch hats and costumes ayyy (looking at you, Ily).

Be sure to check out my Facebook page and Twitter for event postings this weekend. Look out for the November Itinerary!

Stay safe and spooky a f this weekend!

Night Drive/No Boyfriends at Kung Fu Necktie

Some of my favorite nights are the double duty ones that Kung Fu Necktie has often. It’s extra special when both the upstairs and downstairs events are BOTH killer. Night Drive and No Boyfriends were two events that merged perfectly.

No Boyfriends is held upstairs and features resident DJ’s Diamond Girl and Tony Modica. Both are DJ’s who have been crucial to the dance music scene since way back in the Medusa Lounge days (R.I.P.). Guest DJ was Abe Dubuque, in from New York City. I was happy to run into some old friends at this one. The music was excellent from every DJ. Tony Modica has an expertise in Disco, and he mixes it well within other genres. No Boyfriends is a relatively new event, and I am excited to see how it progresses.. It’s fun!

Night Drive has been going on for a bit, and it was good to finally make it out. It’s a party featuring all the early oughts and beyond synth wave. Justice, Hot Chip, all the Ed Banger records artists, etc. The new retro wave music movement has been warming my heart for a minute now, and the nostalgia this night brought on for me was sweet. I remember playing Justice-Cross on my little radio show back in college. Knowing that there is a monthly event that caters to this scene just shows how diverse Philly nightlife really is.

Speaking of a diverse city, I checked out The 4th Annual Philadelphia Alternative Taxidermy Contest held at Ruba Club, before heading over to Kung Fu Necktie. The event was hosted by The Strange and Unusual Philadelphia, an awesome oddities shop on south street. My personal favorite taxidermy piece was this coffin squirrel.

Of course, all of the pieces were incredible and now I absolutely want to try my hand at taxidermy. All of the contestants were extremely talented, and it was amazing to see how women dominated the competition. I can’t wait for next year!

Keep up kids, this is a spooky month with a lot of events coming up. Be sure to check out my October itinerary post as I will be updating it throughout the month.
