If I’m gonna interview Mad Decent-affiliated DJ Dirty South Joe about So Far Gone, the Drake-themed party he helps organize every month in Philly, I’m gonna interview him on the 2nd floor of Tootsie’s; yes, the one Drizzy references in his “Back To Back” track. Unfortunately, no shoulder rubs went down for either of us, but we can dream.
However, we did have a great discussion in the legendary soul food restaurant about everything– from Drake’s catalog and the viral dance moves in the “Hotline Bling” music video to Joe’s own personal DJ history to his meme comedy on his Instagram page. And of course, we spoke about the upcoming one-year anniversary of the now infamous Drake-themed party that takes place monthly in a tiny South Philly tavern, which Joe runs along with DJs Gun$ Garcia and Magglezzz.
If you want to go to the sure-to-be-lit one-year anniversary of Drake Night (which, after watching this interview, of course you do), it takes place Wednesday, November 25th at the Dolphin Tavern, 1539 S. Broad Street. Doors open at 9pm; we recommend getting there early because capacity gets reached preeeeetty early. See you there, until then… Take Care.
