Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Brunch.

We’ve got a nice variety of stuff coming up through the weekend… Here’s what’s what.

Thursday: It’s August’s CAN YOU ROCK A LITTLE SOFTER?!  Come out for live performances by hosts RAFFA & RAINER with a full band and acoustic sets from this month’s featured performers JOHN HANCOCK (ANR) and EVAN ROWE (FTL) with not-so-surprise guest NOAH NITE of Sir Majesty.  Plus, Raffa will be serving up her famous vegan chili.  $5 cover, 8pm, arrive early to get a good seat!

Friday: Come out for an in-store featuring live performances by ICE CREAM, FLOWER FLOWER and TOAD EYES with artwork on display by Reiner Gamboa + Stephanie Benhaim.  The event is free and starts at 8pm.

Saturday: Something a little funky and different… Psychedelic Hammond organ jazz trio BIG FUN 3 get their groove on live at Sweat!  They’re celebrating the release of their new self-titled album, out now on Ropeadope Records (DJ Logic, Medeski, Martin + Wood, King Britt, The Dead Kenny G’s – not sure who they are but their name is awesome).  Also performing will be GOLD DUST LOUNGE who specialize in “downtempo ambient rock, surf noir, spy jazz, and other cryptic sounds.”  The show is free and starts at 8pm.

Sunday: VEGAN BRUNCH!  You know the drill by now – brunch is served from 11am to 4pm with an a la carte menu of yummy vegan breakfast choices ranging in price from $1-3.

Hope to see you this weekend!
