We are also excited to announce that Risky Disko, a duo made up of DJs Greg D. and Crouse. Their sets are known to for diversity and pull from funk and disco, to classic house, Balearic, no wave and psychedelic. A powerful duo, we're excited to see how they set the stage for G Nome this February!

Risky Disko Presents: SPARE TIME

with DJs Greg D & Crouse


Friday, 23 September | 9pm-2am | FREE


Risky Disko is Philadelphia DJs Greg D and Crouse. Their journey began through a mutual friendship and love for classic disco and house music. Using these genres as a framework for their sets, they take inspiration from whatever groove suits the mood. Pulling from funk and disco, to classic house, Balearic, no wave and psychedelic, this duo has taken the time to understand how the dance floor has changed over the years. Both strive for the new and different, no matter how classic or current the period is in which it originated.

In 2013, Risky Disko earned a residency at The Dolphin Tavern where they currently host a monthly party, Try It Out. The party has included guest DJs such as Juan MacLean, Rory Phillips, Sleazy Mcqueen, Joe Goddard, Joakim, Medlar, Moon Boots, Eric Duncan and Holy Ghost!. In 2013, Risky Disko started a weekly party called The Wet Boogie, hosted at Ortlieb’s Bar.

Their goal: to guide you on a journey through the decades...but be all great journeys, there involves some element of RISK.

Not only is South Bowl an extraordinary bowling alley, it’s also an amazing party spot! Here, we have our awesome roof-deck, which is home to many parties and artsy views. Surrounded by a lush plant border, the roof-deck is located on the second story, and over-looks the surrounding area. Some events hosted here include Unconditional Love. This rooftop reggae fest (Presented by Solomonic Sound System) occurs the last Sunday of every month this summer! (So don’t miss it on August 30th) Kids bowl free during this, and there’s a specialty food menu on the roof deck all afternoon! On July-18th, we had the Pop up Shake down on the Roof top! This included DJs Rob Paine & Willyum, Who’s who, and Lee Jones. On June 21st, there was SoulnSol on the rooftop. This included music and some good times on a lazy Sunday afternoon! There was music by Ed Christof, Shearn, and others at this awesome dance party. Have no fear if you missed these though! There are more magnificent parties to come in the future, as you can see/check out by selecting calendar on the sidebar located to your left!
