RECORD STORE DAY

“Record Store Day was conceived in 2007 at a gathering of independent record store owners and employees as a way to celebrate and spread the word about the unique culture surrounding nearly 1400 independently owned record stores in the US and thousands of similar stores internationally. There are Record Store Day participating stores on every continent except Antarctica.” Check out all the RSD exclusives being released that day on their website. Sweat Records will be opening at 8am for the Record Store Day exclusives.

SWEAT STAGE

TOBACCO
{PA | GHOSTLY INTERNATIONAL}

“TOBACCO has proven throughout the years to be an enigma choosing to shroud his personal life in mystery in order to keep a deeper level of focus on the music. That has all helped tremendously as there’s a lot to chew on from 2008’s debut Fucked Up Friends to 2010’s Maniac Meat, all leading up and spilling into TOBACCO’s Ghostly debut, Ultima II Massage.

Over the course of three LPs and a number of EPs, the Pennsylvania snake-synth-charmer has continuously depended his approach to aural depravity. Ultima II Massage brings the listener up to TOBACCO’s speed as he widens a jagged swath through his own weird catalog, each disparate track damaged to the point of contributing to some sort of greater, lurching Frankenstein-like state.

There were notable breaks en route to TOBACCO in the present a commission to remix White Zombie’s Thunder Kiss 65, a new Black Moth Super Rainbow record entitled Cobra Juicy, and producing Demon Queen’s Exorcise Tape with vocalist Zackey Force Funk. All these experiences no doubt played a role in TOBACCO’s progression. You can hear disembodied bits of Boards of Canada, early Def Jam records, and Gary Numan, or maybe just public-access TV and bad VHS dubs of 80’s horror flicks. Or the sun exploding and everything you’ve ever loved melting away. At the end of the day, TOBACCO’s just trying to make meditation music.”

GETTING TO SWEATSTOCK

UBER
The Miami team have graciously given us code “SWEATSTOCK” to disperse far and wide, which will get you $20 toward your first ride if you’ve never tried Uber before. It’s easy, reliable, they actually take credit cards, AND they’ve got word out to drivers about the festival which means uber-short wait times. Full info on the image below or click here.

GREEN MOBILITY NETWORK BIKE VALET
Bike it and check it! That’s right, we’ve got the Green Mobility Network on hand running a bike valet during the full Street Stage hours from 2-11pm. Leave those heavy locks at home, we’ll keep your bike safe under GMN’s watchful eyes (and of course don’t forget your helmet, and lights if you’re riding home after sunset).

CAR POOL
Carpool. Guess what? Churchill’s new owners also own a few lots nearby which will be available for Sweatstock parking. We still think you should gather some friends, designate a driver, and share your ride!

Whichever option you choose please be safe cuz we love you!
