Sweat’s Party of the Year: PLUG MIAMI tomorrow night!!

Dear Friends,

We hope you had a great Holiday. From what we’ve been selling, we know some of you received some amazing gifts!!

So… everyone keeps asking us if we’re throwing a New Years’ party. The answer is we’re not…we’re throwing PLUG MIAMI tomorrow night!! Come out to this, the last Sweat event of 2007 and AVENUE D’s LAST SHOW EVER!!

For the last six years, beloved MIA/NYC electro-booty-pop duo Avenue D have been rocking crowds, selling thousands of CDs, and shaking asses all over the world. They’ve come home to bid farewell with one last crazy blow-out show at Studio A tomorrow night!!

Performing live:
AVENUE D – notorious for outrageous performances, raunchy lyrics, skimpy outfits, and the catchiest electro-bass hits (“Do I Look Like A Slut?”, “2D2F” and more)!! Did we mention they’re bringing TRAPEZE GIRLS!?

OTTO VON SCHIRACH – special live Miami bass set by this hometown hero!!

THE JACUZZI BOYS – we can’t keep their 7″ in stock at Sweat!! Last show before they leave on tour!!

JOSE EL REY – Miami’s hilarious freestyle MC!!

Plus: OurStage winner JAYLYN COFFIN, interactive visuals, and a very special DJ set by the legendary ARTHUR BAKER (producer for New Order, Afrika Bambaataa, etc. etc. etc.)!! Tickets are only $10. TEN BUCKS for what is going to be one of the most memorable nights of the year, if not your entire life (better than NYE too because it’s a weekend night)!!

We’ve brought you tons of amazing shows this year and this one is the grand finale. Come see some of Miami’s best and party with the whole Miami/Sweat familia like it’s 2008!!

See you tomorrow!!

Cheers,
Lolo, Jsin + the Sweat crew
