The Catacombs pays tribute to a former Philadelphia destination spot. Located under Second Story, The Catacombs club (1127 Walnut Street, Philadelphia, PA) provided an after hour space where African American gays danced to the roots of house music. Gary Hines honors this history every 2nd and 4th Tuesday from 7-9 PM. In addition to its interview format, the show focuses on fast house, dance, tribal, jungle, club and crazy beats from the late 70’s and early 80’s.
