The Greenroom in downtown Fort Lauderdale hosted another event that helps solidify it as one of the edifices of local flavor. Caturday (as it was called) was never in a moment of placidness or plasticity. Inside the club on the both the first and second floors, 30 local artists displayed their cat artwork to appreciating admirers, and local vendors had their cat-oriented collections, from jewelry to shot glasses, for sale. Outside on the front patio, kittens from The Cat Network were available for adoption and those who did adopt last night, happily showed others their new friend inside the club.
To make the night even more memorable, Hialeah’s Radioboxer performed a set that clearly showed what constant practice and highly active creativity can do when funneled through four musicians who want to give the crowd a performance they have yet to see. Beginning with a special, quirky cat intro, Radioboxer slid into one of their new songs “The Protector” and the energy quickly progressed from there. More and more each song built on top of the last, not always involving loud, hard-hitting actions, but gracefully taking the chaos of music and bending it into whatever way they wished. For their close, the band invited various audience members to get on stage to jump and dance, throw confetti and just go crazy with their friends to the music.
