On Saturday June 11th, from 5-8 PM, is the 3rd annual Art + Soul Food street festival, featuring live music, the best soul food in the city, local artists with international talent, appearances by the Honest Tom’s Tacos and Buttercream Cupcakes food trucks, a Yards Brewing Co. after-party, the local drum team and even a fashion show. Focused on the 2700 and 2800 blocks of Girard, this event is a real labor of love for the community.
Cosmo Baker is widely considered as one of the top party-rocking DJs on the planet. A master of everything from hip-hop to disco & funk to electronic music, his unique style and spinning prowess is able to bring it all together in a cohesive, and funky manner. This Philadelphia native cut his chops alongside contemporaries such as ?uestlove and Rich Medina, and when he relocated to Brooklyn in the early ’00s he helped found the internationally known DJ / remix collective The Rub. His knowledge of music is only matched with his uncanny ability to move the crowd. Cosmo is a rare breed of DJ that bridges the gap between the legendary DJs of yesterday and the superstar DJs of today.
Era Bar is located at the corner of 28th and Poplar Streets. Did we mention it serves Ethiopian food, and has great craft beers on tap as well as cheap drink specials? What about its' super long 360 degree bar? This hangout reflects the Ethiopian soul of its owner, and should be far more widely known. This opportunity to come groove with Cosmo on a Sunday evening at Era is rare indeed. Don't miss this party on June 12th at 8 PM!
