The Best night in Philly
My wife introduced me to this night. For years on a Monday night this is all I knew. Ari, King Brit, Dozia, Wink, Schoolly D, Quest Love, the Roots. Hell I think I even seen Bruce Willis at Back to Basic's. We miss our tall brother Impozi Tolbert taking photos of the entire night. Man real Philly underground. - Jules , posted 11/22/10
Back to Basics every Monday Night
Every Monday Night at Silk City Lounge (5th & Spring Garden) in Philly, Magic happens. With international Dj superstar King Britt, DJ Dozia and the Back to Basics band. (Which includes ?uestlove (the Roots) Chuck Treece (Bad brains) Carlos Izaguirre (Jill Scott) Tim Motzer (Soft Lunch) and guest vocalists such as Lady Alma, Jaguar, Jill Scott, Tanja Dixon, Ursula Rucker, etc. This Party "Back to Basics" started at Silk City in 1990 and was one of the birthplaces for many pioneers of the Philadelphia Hip-Hop, House and Neo-Soul Movements. The Party ended in 1997 and King re-invented the party this past Fall. Every Monday night, This is one of the Best kept secrets of Philly right now and the cover charge is only $6. There is no where else in the city where you can get up close and personal with such top notch talent in an intimate venue. I tend to pop thru there at least twice a month, Come support if you can, Lee Mayjahs?
