Kiss ’n’ Fly

Wed., Jan. 9, 9pm. Free. With DJ RMT + Strawberry Mansion. Barbary, 941 Frankford Ave. www.myspace.com/thenewbarbary

When John Redden opened the Barbary it was a given he’d have no problem booking DJs. Even so, the lineup at the little-Fishtown-club-that-could has gotten downright silly. From the Immediate! crew to the old-school soulery of Philly’s favorite expat Mark Foreman and his Turnaround funk, the Barbary’s schedule has been chugging along with serious steam. Enter the gals from Oh, Murder! Inc. and their Kiss ’n’ Fly night—this time with contributions from DJ RMT’s Darklord. Don’t let the drug reference fool you—these ladies come correct on the decks with serious club bangers and disco funk. If that’s not your thing, don’t fret—the Strawberry Mansion gents run the hip-hop gamut from old-school jams to contemporary cuts. If you have energy to spare after this one, you’re not doing it right. (Joshua Valocchi)
