My good friend Madison Moore has organized an art party in New haven, a kind of hipster-y, New York-cool party in stodgy ol’ Connecticut.

The party, Artspace Underground, is held at Artspace New Haven, a non-profit contemporary art gallery. It has been pretty successful, marketing itself online and getting crowds by hosting popular local and regional bands.

Madison asked me to film a party and put together a short video for publicity and promotion. This is really my first solo film effort — shot and edited in less than 24 hours, so be kind!

Certainly, most of my friends still have no clue who he is, but Kade himself says he’s known on every continent on Earth, even — even! — the great continent of Alaska.

Sure, Kade has partied with the few celebs who ever come to Philadelphia, and he’s been on Gossip Girl for several seconds. Just this week, he debuted — spoke! — on Showtime’s La La Land. Of course we’ve all heard about his reality show in development with IMG and book deal with Trident Media. Although, when we contacted IMG, we found it difficult to find someone to confirm the Kade show; some didn’t know what we were talking about. And Trident Media never responded to our requests for comment. But who are we? Kade’s likely telling the truth, but maybe he isn’t top priority at either firm.

Now, our news! In honor of Kade’s anniversary, my Penn colleagues Heidi Khaled and Brett Bumgarner and I cut a short, ten-minute version of our documentary on Arthur Kade, Fame: Kade Style
