Mad Decent Block Party at the South Street Seaport

What’s summer without a decent block party? You know, just you and your closest 1,000 friends, some drinks, some jams, something like THIS. You get the picture. Summer is almost over you guys, I saw some leaves fall off a tree, JUST THE OTHER DAY, so it’s time to get your free summer events in before it’s all over.

Head down to the South Street Seaport for this year’s Mad Decent Block Party, hosted by the Mad Decent Record Label, (does the name Diplo ring a bell?). The line-up includes Gang Gang Dance, Zeds Dead, Maluca, Claude VonStroke, BAIO (Vampire Weekend) DJ Set, The Hood Internet, Bosco Delrey, PO PO and Trevor “Trouble” Andrew. No Major Lazer at the New York event, but I’m sure you can get your sweat-soaked dance on, just the same.

The event runs from noon to 9:00pm, you pace yourself. As mom would say, stay hydrated! Also remember to RSVP ahead of time to guarantee your admission. And for the lazy Brooklynites/Queens-ites?, who don’t want to go into the city, there’s always the dance party at MoMa PS1 in Long Island City.

Mad Decent Block Party
12:00 – 9:00pm
South Street Seaport

Laura S, left the "sixth borough" three years ago to settle in Brooklyn. After working at some daily rags, she now does writing on the side but still eats more Ramen then necessary. When she's not moving residences every 6 months, eating her way through every neighborhood, and trying every microbrew known to man, she is unsuccessfully rediscovering home economics. With her binging days behind her, she's now exploring new projects and rediscovering the city that she loves (although is still prone to sliding on her knees during a Prince karaoke set).
