Gang Gang Dance, Claude VonStroke, Nadastrom, and More to Play Mad Decent Block Party 2011

Summer is, for all intents and purposes, upon us, and that can only mean one thing (as far as this news story is concerned, anyway): The annual Mad Decent Block Party is about to hit the streets of the US. This year finds Diplo and his band of musical merrymakers travelling to New York, Philadelphia, Chicago, and Los Angeles to take over designated intersections in the name of, well, partying. Performers include Gang Gang Dance (pictured above), DJ Sega, Das Racist, Paul Devro, Claude VonStroke, Nadastrom, Lunice, Sinden, Major Lazer, surprise guests, and many more, and each party is absolutely free.
