We missed you!! Our email server was down last week but it’s all fixed now and we’re back in action. Just in time for…
SWEAT’S 3-YEAR ANNIVERSARY PLUS THE FIRST EVER INTERNATIONAL RECORD STORE DAY!! Holy crap – Sweat Records has been selling music, throwing parties, and keeping you in tune with what’s going on Miami for three whole years and we can’t wait to celebrate with all of you!! Tons of info to share about it so here we go…
For the early birds, come out for a reception in the store starting at 7pm featuring:
-a special rare live performance by NIL LARA (myspace.com/nillara) and perhaps a surprise guest…
-DJ sets by OTTO VON SCHIRACH, MIKE DEUCE, INDUCE, and DJ HOTTPANTS!!
-wine graciously sponsored by SACRE BLEU WINE (myspace.com/sacrebleuwine)
-a big-ass BIRTHDAY CAKE to share and we’ll have our Earthcakes Vegan Cupcakes on sale!!
-lots of FREE CDs, vinyl and swag for Record Store Day!!
What is Record Store Day you may ask?
RECORD STORE DAY was created so that record stores worldwide could band together for “the purpose of celebrating the culture and unique place that they occupy both in their local communities and nationally” and we couldn’t agree more. Peep www.recordstoreday.com for tons of info, excellent artist quotes and to see what the hundreds of other stores are doing to celebrate!!
Our celebration continues next door at Churchill’s at 10pm with live performances by some of Miami’s best acts!! In the main room witness:
-with your musical emcee JOSE EL REY!!
On the back patio stage, prepare for some noisy fun with performances by DINO FELIPE, RAMBURGLAR, and THE CREATURE TWEAKER COUNCIL!!
Lastly (for all the night owls), save your wristband from our party and head over to PS14 for FREE entry to the official after-party going ’til 5am featuring live sets by AWESOME NEW REPUBLIC, ¡MAYDAY! and more with DJs DANNY ASHE, COUNTESS CUCHA and KEMAPLASTIK!! PS14 is located at 28 NE 14th St. (next to The Vagabond).
Thanks to EVERYONE for all the love and support and three awesome years!! We are so happy in our new location and here’s to many more…
Lolo, Jsin + the Sweat crew
P.S. We’ll be pre-partying at THE VAGABOND tonight!! If you’re going to the VHS or BETA/Tigercity show come by after with your ticket stub for free entry and a complimentary drink!!
P.P.S. We’ve got another awesome in-store event on Sunday for 4/20… Remember “Super Size Me”, the movie where a guy eats nothing but McDonald’s for 30 days? Well comedian Doug Benson has made “SUPER HIGH ME” and – you guessed it – stays stoned for 30 days straight. He also was completely sober for 30 days before that to compare the differences and to research the issues on medical marijuana. Screening starts at 8ish, we’ll have some special “theme” merchandise on sale (ie Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic”) and munchies will be available from our organic coffee counter to sate any unexplainable hungers… No RSVP, arrive early to get a seat!! 5505 NE 2nd Ave. www.superhighmemovie.com/events/super-high-me-sweat-records-miami-420/

-Sweat is now carrying EARLOVE pro earplugs!! “Unlike foam earplugs that block out high frequencies – making speech and sound muffled – these patented earplugs reduce the overall sound 20 decibels evenly across all frequencies. Speech and music stay clear, just quieter, like turning down the volume.” $15 bucks a pop is a low price for being able to hear what your grandkids might have to say one day… They even come with their own carrying case keychain!!
-Current EARTHCAKES Vegan Cupcake flavors include: Cookies ‘n’ Cream, Vanilla with Buttercream Frosting and Carrot Cake
