Sweat Records: Dick Dale + Sticky Fingers Cupcake Party!!

Hey Friends,

Thanks again for another great night at Circa28. DJ Le Spam threw down some seriously funky 7″s!! His band the Spam All-Stars has a new album coming out and you can already purchase the whole thing online here. New 12″s at Sweat soon!!

This week at Circa Saturdays we’ve got the STICKY FINGERS CUPCAKE PARTY!! Our friend Coliene’s new baking business “Sticky Fingers Cupcakes” just launched and we’re having a tasting party for her delectable mini-cupcakes. They all have cute musical names like “La Isla Bonita” (coconut) and “Stawberry Fields.” Going with the Sticky Fingers vibe, Miami’s rock ‘n’ roll power team – Gregg ‘The Pharmacist’ Foreman and Carmel Ophir will be providing the psychedelic soundtrack downstairs. The cupcakes drop at 11pm.


TONIGHT: Category305.com presents “RED HOT STATE” – an evening of political erotica!! Local personalities will read risque passages from fiction by national political figures. I’m going on first, check it out, more info below and at www.category305.com
