A long standing fixture in the South Street District of Philadelphia will be no more. After 16 years of Hip Hip and Electro events, Club Fluid is closing its doors for good. Philly.com broke the story last week. This mainstay in the night life of Philly has unfortunately run its course, but the club will be going out with a bang.
The manager of the club, Oronde Gibson, spoke on the involvement of the club over the 14 years that he has been employed there.
“It’s gone from a mom and pop artsy-type thing to a corporate type-thing.”
To honor the history and closing of the club, Amir “?uestlove” Thomson of the roots will grace the stage with his gifts as the headline act for the April 6th finale. ?uest will be joined by Yameen Allworld and Mike Nyce. Together they have hosted the long-standing Tasty-Treats party.
DJ Jazzy Jeff is also a late addition to the show’s lineup.
