Those of you who came out this past Saturday for Record Store Day can’t deny that it was a blast.
Beginning with Sweatstock 4 at Sweat Records and Churchill’s Pub, the store was filled with happy vinyl enthusiasts and the bar with full of its usually fun patrons. Outside in the back parking lot of Sweat, the stage was set up for the bands to play, food trucks were lined up to offer up some locally-owned snacks, representatives from the O’Miami Poetry Festival allowed anyone to step up to a typewriter and punch out a few lines and a fitness organization dared attendees to set a time record on an intense pull-up and modified push-up exhibition. Even with the midday heat in full blaze on everyone’s heads, no one wanted to miss an opportunity to catch a great show.
Across county lines in downtown Fort Lauderdale, Subculture celebrated in its own fashion with Block x Blog. Occupying all three venues of America’s Backyard, Club Revolution and the Green Room, Block x Blog fostered one of the local music scene’s biggest mixes of live and electronic music. With three stages sometimes simultaneously playing sets, crowd members definitely got a work out trying to catch all the shows they could; we know we got ours. Along with the music, inside the Green Room, artists displayed or created on the spot their work that fit amicably with the theme of Block x Blog.
Thank you to all those who came out and made Record Store Day a blast and can’t wait to hang out again next year.
This Thursday March 28, you’re in for a treat. South Florida’s one and only Teepee (Erix S. Laurent, Andrew McClees and Dion Kerr) will be performing at Bardot, kicking off their “Distant Love” US tour for 2013. Accompanying Teepee that night on the 1′s & 2′s will be DJ’s Mikey Ramirez (Radio-Active Records) and our very own Mr. Jolt, selecting those tunes that will get you in the mood during this intimate local session.
For those of you who are still scratching your heads wondering who Teepee is and what their sound is all about, scratch no more… Below you’ll find an exclusive interview we did with Erix and Andrew that has a couple of live acoustic tracks for you to get familiar with.
