Dewey Decibel (a.k.a. Dewey Saunders) is a South Florida transplant who was “raised on surf and skateboard culture, inundated with hip hop and art throughout his younger years.” He recently released a dope ass mixtape #BOOMBOXBOOKWORM via Bold New Breed Records (which you can download for free HERE, and you really should) providing witty, laidback flow combined with hypnotic psychedelic production work from Eligh Gandalf of The Living Legends. Dewey Decibel will be celebrating his latest party-starter tonight at Silk City, and he has also assembled a fine lineup of rising hip hop artists in Wrecking Crew’s Has-Lo, Curly Castro, and Zilla Rocca. Add in the contributions of DJ PHSH, and you have a real throwdown for Fat Tuesday in Philly. Do this! Silk City, 435 Spring Garden St., 9pm, $5, 21+ - H.M. Kauffman
