New Year’s Day On Tuesday Means Five Days To Party.

December 27, 2012

It’s a four day weekend, which means there is a lot of partying to be done this weekend. And there is a ton of fun stuff happening in Philly. At this point, we suggest you go to the liquor store and stock up on refreshments for pre-gaming. This is going to be fun.

FRIDAY

Chill Moody, Mic Stew, Jade Alston, Mont Brown and Pate at The TLA

Chill Moody has been a staple in JUMP mag pretty much since we first met him in 2010. We’ve loved watching this young man from West Philly do great things (like blow away the crowd at The Roots Picnic this summer). And now he’s getting his first major headline event.

The best part about Chill – aside from his smooth flow, is that he is all about taking Philly with him to the top. This show features some real Philly talent (Mic Stew won the national Red Bull emcee competition this year). And who knows who else might show up to see Philly’s next big hip hop star? It should be a pretty special night.

Matt Kass and Josh Benus, the duo behind Modern Inventors, covered a Paul McCartney song. Then they got an email from Sir Paul. He loved their version. On Friday, these talented guys will drop their debut album and the local folk stars from Hezekiah Jones will get the party started.

Black Thought with JPeriod, Reef The Lost Cauze, Mic Stew and Rowboat Casino at The Blockley

This is an amazing opportunity to see The Roots frontman up close and in person (rather than on your TV set). And the lineup is full of Philly hip hop talent.

OCD: Moosh & Twist at The First Unitarian Church

Our summer issue cover boys get millions of hits on YouTube and they have fans across the country. Now you can see them in one of the great party spaces in Philly.

SUNDAY

The War on Drugs at Johnny Brenda’s

The thing is way sold out (as is their Monday concert). But it should be a great show.

The Starting Line at the Electric Factory

Yeah, this one is totally sold out too. These local pop punks don’t play here that often so sneak in if you have to.

Rebirth Brass Band at The Blockley

Let the hipsters have their War on Drugs. The suburban teens can jam with The Starting Line. But the best party in town on Sunday will be at The Blockley where second-line legends Rebirth Brass Band will have everyone dancing.

MONDAY

Nicos Gun, El Malito and The Fleeting Ends at Milkboy

What a great way to end 2012 and start the new year – by dancing the night away with three great Philly bands.

Philly Bloco at World Cafe Live

These guys are a party any time they perform. The show starts at 10:30 so you’ll definitely be dancing when the bell rings.

The Mummers Parade on Broad Street

Love them or hate them, the Mummers are a good party. And be sure to run down to Two Street for the party after the party.
