We just brought in a nice haul from Back On Black, the label specializing in classic metal reissues.
“Established in 2004, Back On Black specializes in vinyl editions of classic Metal albums and is dedicated to providing top quality releases for record collectors and Metal fans worldwide.
Our releases are pressed on exquisite, heavy weight vinyl to produce the very best in sound quality with a mesmerizing tactile feel that makes them a pleasure to handle. Beautiful vinyl colours are carefully chosen to complement the artwork, with some releases available in a variety of colours for the dedicated collector. Many releases are double, or even triple LPs!
The artwork itself is re-worked to faithfully interpret the original album, and reproduced on superior quality gatefold sleeves in heavy weight card with a superb and un-rivaled finish.
As well as all our re-mastered LPs of classic albums from throughout Metal’s history, Back On Black also issues many exclusive vinyl editions of contemporary Metal releases. Far from being dead, our beloved vinyl format is going from strength to strength – and Back On Black is proud to serve the needs of the Metal vinyl connoisseur!”

Some of the world’s biggest names in electronic dance music (Bassnectar, Skream, 12th Planet, Datsik) are on Miami’s own BASSHEAD MUSIC label. What started out as a production company 13 years ago has grown to be so much more, and the City of Bass wouldn’t be what it is without them. They’ll be celebrating that fact tonight at THERAPY (60 NE 11th Street, Downtown Miami) with the first night of their new weekly DROP party. Read all about it in Juan’s interview with the New Times, and don’t miss the big event featuring dubstep don HATCHA, JUAN BASSHEAD & MC JUMANJI, ALEX M / NO JODA, AMKZ, BATS, RACKUP & PINION!
Sunday evening Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth will be reading his poetry live at O, Miami’s closing event at New World Center, along with inaugural poet Richard Blanco, Parks & Rec writer Megan Amram, with screenings of new original poetry films from Borscht Corp. It is going to be awesome.
Also awesome: Sunday at 2pm, Thurston will be making noise at Sweat.
Admission to this special occurrence is free, but limited to people who’ve bought a ticket to the evening event. Tickets are still available and start at $20 (bring your ticket or proof of purchase to get in). Space is extremely tight so it’s first come, first serve until we reach capacity.
Huge thanks to O, Miami, Knight, and Thurston for supporting all of this!
P.S. The “O,fter Party” for the New World event is at The Broken Shaker! Come by after and hang with everyone.
Whew. Took us a few days to recover but holy awesome, this year’s Sweatstock was definitely the best one yet!
Rain? We don’t care about no stinkin’ rain. Some of us danced in it, some of us went inside for a little, the show went on! Everything else about the day rocked: satisfied RSD customers (anyone waiting before 8:30am got to claim one “top pick”), loads of great performances, mountains of free nachos… we could go on and on.

There’s no cover, so come on out!

Before writing, each participant erases the previous person’s text from the board before replacing it with their own. A photograph is taken of each excerpt. These images will be uploaded as a slideshow on flickr and vimeo, creating a meta-poem online.
Whew, that should be most of it. Please carpool or ride your bike if you can and see you Saturday!
There’s a great article in today’s Miami Herald about the stand-up comedy scene in Miami, and Sweat’s own Casa de Ha-ha and host Daniel Reskin are featured! Read it here and come out to the next Casa on Tuesday, May 14th.
