Sweat Records: Battles Recap/Weekend Warm-Up!!

Hey Friends,

WOW – thanks to everyone who came out for BATTLES on Monday!!

(pic lifted from Critical Miami!)

The show was packed on a rainy weeknight, both opening bands (Dance Jenny, John Hancock ANR & the Founding Fathers) were awesome, and then Battles came on and blew everyone away. It was definitely a great musical moment in Miami… If you haven’t yet picked up their album “Mirrored” you can get it at Sweat!!

TONIGHT is Voxtrot with The Postmarks and Jesse Jackson at Studio A, Whole Wheat Bread and more at Churchill’s, Santogold live at PS14 and Off The Radar/The Lab presents the “Let’s Get Physical” retro-fitness theme party!! Should be pretty amazing… Tomorrow at Circa we’re proud to welcome SAM FRIEND for a special live performance!! Full info on that and the many other fun things happening in South Florida below..
