Join Ben Arsenal & Friends for a very special departure from Doc Roger's on N. American Street, Philadelphia.

Powerful forces first drew us to the location and together we harnessed them into something beautiful.

After a number of fantastic voyages together, we thought Doc’s would be the perfect place to celebrate New Year’s Eve. Sadly, powers beyond our control unexpectedly closed the rift and we were forced to cancel our departure. It seemed as though that portal site had been closed forever, but the stars have aligned and we are able to go back one more time. It’s time to party like we were supposed to on NYE and bid a proper farewell to an amazing venue that’s closing too soon.

This is going to be a momentous evening filled with unparalleled East Coast talent carefully selected to curate an out-of-body audio visual experience.

Fantastical, wild, and adventurous costuming encouraged. Street clothes are welcome.

$25 - Limited Discount Early Bird Tickets [Sold Out]

$30 - General Admission.

We anticipate selling out. If not, there will be a finite number of door tickets available for $40.
