Our last Classified live art & music party with Distortedd was a big success, and this time we're back with a very special guest, Dessie Jackson who is in town from her recent big move to LA. Featuring support from local artist Allegra Yvonne Gia and sounds by Anthony Somebody of Quite Hype, this is an event that you don't want to miss (and given the intimate setting of the Open Space gallery at 1014 Marshall St, it will sell out).
See you there Friday, April 22nd and remember, please enjoy the moment and keep it classified... photography and cell phone use discouraged

Saturday June 27th We are Throwing a Ridiculous DJ Party in a Small Storefront on South Street in Philly
On Saturday June 27th at 10PM we are throwing a ridiculous DJ party in a small storefront at 647 South Street in Philly. We are collaborating with the good homies at Ethik Clothing Co (shout out to Tahj) for this event that is sure to sell out because their storefront is SMALL. So get it while the getting is good because this lineup is truly killer and probably worth like 7ish times more than the measly $5 door we're asking. On the bill is: HI$TO coming all the way from Baltimore after recently announcing his new musical joint-venture Jah Guardian with fellow DJ Gianni Lee, Quite Hype, F1LTHY, Oatmier, and Heaven in Stereo hot off of his tour with Rome Fortune. Yea, it's like that
We got together with our friends at The Decades Anmlhse and Dimas Consulting to bring you a Roots Picnic afterparty in Philly on May 30th. We jump off at 11PM and the festivities go late so bring your party shoes and whatever else it is you require to get your groove on. Full info on above flyer. See you there

Cult Classic & Babylon Cartel Present: The Official Key! Loudest of the Loud Tour Afterparty in Philadelphia May 2nd
On May 2nd the Loudest of the Loud tour comes to Philly featuring ILoveMakonnen, Key! and Sonny Digital. Join us and Babylon Cartel after the show for the official Key! afterparty featuring special appearance by the Atlanta rapper and our surprise guests. We brought out Key! to Philly last November, and we wanted to make sure the next time he's in town we do it big so it was only right for us to collab with the Babylon Cartel family on this special event. And many shout outs to NOVO Gang for being our host for the night:
While the tour show is 21+ our afterparty is 18+ so if you're too young to catch the show at Underground Arts join us for the afterparty at our loft space located only a minute from public transportation/the Market-Frankford line.

Cult Classified is for everyone from the street kids to the dance music aficionados and all in between. Speaking of music, we will be handpicking a select few of talented dance music DJs (with some very special guests) for Cult Classified. As always with Cult Classic parties, you can expect the very best breaking underground club music, house bangers and emerging hip hop all under one roof.
And good music isn’t the only thing you can expect on April 17th. We will also be celebrating our co-owner and Quite Hype music curator Anthony Coleman’s birthday. Birthday bashes only happen once a year so we’re going the extra mile to make this event a banging time. We've done the underground warehouse parties with 800+ people. We've done the instore release events. We tried the monthly bar parties. But now we want to bring you all something special; an intimate and fun night of dancing and special attractions including a private casino game room and tattoo parlor. Ask about these amenities that will be a special part of the Cult Classified experience. And because it's 4/20 weekend, this event is 420 cool. Many thanks to the great people at NOVO Gang for helping us with this event.

Special discounted entry fee will be offered to those who arrive before 11PM:
