2014 ushered in a new era of Actual Records ‘Twurkaholics’ party on Thursday, February 27th.

The party, which had graduated from warehouses around Philly to Soundgarden Hall, made yet another big move to the TLA on South Street. The new venue, afforded fans two levels of partying, literally. From those on the main floor to the older crew partying in the balcony, it was clear that Twurkaholics picked up right where it left off in 2013: with everyone having a great time.

Almost the entire Twurkaholics crew had their opportunity to rock the crowd on Thursday night. And of course it wouldn’t be the same without Grumpy Cat on stage and MC Buddy Leezle on the mic.

The truth of the matter is that the line-up was so stacked with local talent, with everyone in attendance raging hard from the moment we entered the venue, that things got a little blurry. The opening sets by Ditchdigger and Desafinado were stout. The bar was set high and paved the way for some of our favorite sets of the night by Schmohawk, Ethan Dubb, and LoveCityDJs.

The party also served as the CD release party for Oddzilla and fans clamored to get their hands on free copies of the disc that were distributed from stage. Oddzilla’s set was the best of the night. It was straight fire from start to finish.

19 year old Ozzie took over around 1245am and played a stellar 45 minute set. In all honesty it trumped the headlining set by Hucci in our minds.

That’s not to say we didn’t enjoy Hucci’s set. It’s just that the sets that proceeded it were on another level. You know who else enjoyed it? The hundreds of fans that packed the TLA to the gills. The final power hour of the party was curated by the masked UK DJ and he closed the night out on a high note. There is really nothing else that we can say about the night that would do it more justice than the massive photo gallery below. Happy viewing!
