If you've been into the EDM thing for more than a few minutes, you've heard about the Mad Decent Block Party the last couple years. Heard about the great performances by the label's regulars like Riff Raff, Diplo, and Major Lazer. Heard the tales of wild crowds and even wilder debauchery. And probably heard locals bitch about how the block parties only goes to big cities and never hits up places like Phoenix.
