Liaison Room at Front St Cafe
1253 N Front St

Every 1st Friday join us at the Liaison Room where we’ll be throwing down some of the best house and dance music Philly’s got to offer on The Liaison Room’s custom Funktion-One sound system. This room was specifically designed for maximum sound output with warm lows and equalized high-end output.

Each month we will showcase a different Bangarang Resident(s) and a special guest DJ. We will also feature a different visual artist on display with wares available for purchase. We all love to dress up and wear costumes, and while there is no theme for this event, like there are for others of ours, we highly encourage you to dress up in your funnest, funkiest, fanciest, most fabulous, most you attire, whatever you feel like! Come out and support your local artists while enjoying the low, sweet hum of bass, sipping on a drink and catching up — for old time’s sake!

For our next installment on Friday January 4th, we’ll have musical performances from special guests Maggs Bruchez and Keen, and Bangarang’s own Tommy Hogunz. Our featured artist this month will be Erica Field!
