Diesel block parties

"What began as a spontaneous event for friends and neighbors outside the label's Philadelphia headquarters and grew in 2 short years to the largest block party in city, the MAD DECENT BLOCK PARTY is nothing short of a legend. Now in the event's 3rd summer, Mad Decent has teamed with Diesel and JELLY to bring the MAD DECENT BLOCK PARTY magic across the country! Starting in Philadelphia and traveling to New York, Los Angeles, and Chicago over 4 consecutive Saturdays from July 31st to August 21st, the MAD DECENT BLOCK PARTY promises banging music, carnival games, yummy food, super secret guests and all for FREE!"
The NYC show will take place at South Street Seaport. More details below...

Every song on those "Diesel u music" compilations was truly awful. Whoever is behind choosing the artists for that needs to be demoted.

I'm guessing it will LCD at South Street Seaport....

it's a shame to see mad decent tie themsleves in so closely with the jelly folks

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2010 1:24 PM

LCD? Good luck. I suspect lower tier to mid-rate acts, at best. But for free, you really can't complain (or find a comfortable place to stand).

Well, Freddie Gibbs mainly spends his time between LA & Gary, Indiana, yet is playing at S.O.B.'s on 8/3. So, I'd consider him a likely candidate.

"Meh decent i would rather go to warped tour"

That's because you are either a 15 year old girl or just a f--king loser....ummm, ok, I'll side with the latter.

That weekend is shaping up to be a good one in NYC:
Thursday - Arcade Fire/Spoon at MSG
Friday - YACHT at South Street Seaport
Saturday - Special Disco Version @ PS1, Mad Decent Block Party, Local Natives at Governors Island.
Sunday - Empire of the Sun at T5...has anyone seen this band yet? Are they good live? I feel like they came out of nowhere?

Mad Decent + Jelly = Mad JELLY in your ass eye!

Posted by Anonymous | July 23, 2010 8:29 PM

JELLY fucking sucks!!!! 8 Sundays of free Pool Parties, 6 Saturdays for free at Rock Yard, and 4 free Saturdays of block parties across the country. These guys fucking hate you and deserve to die. Who the fuck do they think they are?

Posted by Barack Blowbama | July 23, 2010 8:34 PM

Yeah, screw those guys! How dare they give poor hipsters something to do for free.99! How dare they! Now how are they going to spend their parent's money? Blasphemy!

Mad Decent is run by a bunch of fat fucking rapists. Real talk.

Posted by Anonymous | July 24, 2010 4:05 AM

Mad Decent can't book LCD, and MIA is married to some heir to the Seagrams fortune...

Expect at best, maybe Blaqstarr, Rye Rye, A-Trak, Major Lazer...Santagold and Kid Cudi, just maybe.

None of those names together could rope in 3 nights at Hammerstein like LCD did.
