June 25, 2014

Reef The Lost CauzeFourth of July is fast approaching and many folks are bailing all next week to hit the beach or whatever.

Philly seems to be trying to start the holiday season even earlier, as there are a ton of great shows on Thursday. Here are five shows to get you in the party mode.

Reef the Lost Cauze at Kung Fu Necktie

Our cover artist from the summer 2013 issue (above) headlines a night of local rap talent, including DJ Caliph, Johnny Popcorn, Milton and Slaughter Rico.

Ron Gallo, The Lawsuits and Up The Chain at Spruce Street Harbor

Ron Gallo, the frontman from local Americana faves Toy Soldiers, dropped his debut solo album on Tuesday. He’ll celebrate the release at the opening of Spruce Street Harbor, a stunning pop-up park just south of Penn’s Landing. The event is sold out but it’s probably still worth trying to get in. The park officially opens to the public on Friday.
