On Saturday, April 17th, Sweat celebrated its 5-year anniversary and Record Store Day 2010 with its biggest event to date – an all-day, all-ages free block party called SWEATSTOCK!
It was an amazing time, over 1,200 people came out throughout the day, and a great time was had by all. See below for reviews, videos + photos from the event!
Jsin and I would like to once again thank: Katherine, MJ, Robert, Matt Preira, Sara, Colin + Jared from Morphologic, Renee, Luci, Andrea, Jason, Fezito, Grace, Dez, Daniel and the Casa De Ha-Ha crew, Chuck and Ian at Iron Forge Press, FriendsWithYou, The Vagabond, LiveNation, Yelp, Garvin Media Group, Cielo Catering, PDP Productions for the stage, Aramis, Scratch Academy, Dominic, Andrew, Black Sheep Sound, the New Times, CityLink and everyone who wrote about us, Mayor Regalado, the cops for keeping everyone safe, all the DJs (Hottpants, Patrick Walsh, Panic Bomber, Mr. Pharmacist, Induce, Tom Laroc, DJ Le Spam, Mike Deuce, Juan Basshead + MC Jumanji who had a full-on dubstep rave happening inside the shop at the end of the night), all the insanely talented acts (Black Bobby, Millionyoung, Beings, Animal Tropical, Matt from Pure Imagination, Raffa & Rainer, Rachel Goodrich, Jacuzzi Boys, ANR, Otto Von Schirach/Mr. Feathers/Thug Jesus), Benny, Churchill’s and every who played there afterward, everyone who showed up, the Knight Foundation for their generous support, and Dean and Randy from NO AGE for being the two realest dudes ever and putting on one of the sickest shows we’ve seen in our whole lives.

Scroll down for some great videos of Million Young, No Age, and a nice collage of the whole jam
Last but definitely not least, shouts outs from the guys themselves on NO AGE’s blog that got us even more misty and happy to be alive and breathing air and throwing shows for the kids and all that squishyness.
Anyway, thanks again to literally everyone. This went off so well and we got so much positive feedback that we pretty much have no choice but to do this again in the future.
Lolo + Jsin
