Sweat Friends + Fam In the News

Happy to report that lots of good things are happening in the Sweat universe. Read on…

The UM Law blog has a great article on Sweat’s ass-kicking co-founder Sara Yousuf! She was studying for the bar exam when Sweat opened and now she’s an award-winning public defender who trains other young lawyers to fight for social justice. GO GIRL.

Assistant manager Ale’s band WASTELANDS are featured in the Broward New Times’ music blog County Grind!

“One of the most exciting new bands to pop up recently is Wastelands, a trio of Miami lifers that rips a unique brand of psych-infused rock with a punk attitude that defies definition — like many of our area’s other musical marsupials. Sure, they’re a rock ‘n’ roll band — just like a marsupial is a mammal — but what the fuck are they really? They’re all some strange thing unto themselves. And whatever it is, it’s awesome.”

Last but not least here’s a great feature on the Miami Girls Rock Camp that Sweat managing partner Emile is launching this summer with local musician Steph Taylor. They just won an Awesome Foundation grant and the big benefit show is next Friday at Churchill’s so don’t miss it!
