Sweat Records: Raffa + Rainer Bring It plus Daft Punk’s ELECTROMA premiere Friday!!

Hey Friends,

Tonight at Churchill’s, Miami’s folk heroes RAFFA + RAINER debut their new weekly event!! “Can You Rock A Little Softer?” is a weekly showcase of featured local and national acoustic acts. There are so many great musicians coming up in the scene that now is a perfect time to start this!! This week’s performers include Nick Kruge, Julia Carroll (Georgia), Sir Majesty, The Down Home Southernaires and of course, Raffa and Rainer themselves. They play from 9.30 to midnight, and there’s an hour of open mic before and after so anyone can come up and share some chords!! Full details below, and please befriend myspace.com/cyrals to stay in touch…

And now the main event!! THIS FRIDAY…

Sweat Records, VICE, and the New Times are extremely happy to be bringing you the exclusive South Florida premiere of ELECTROMA, the new film by legendary French electronic artists DAFT PUNK!! Without giving away too much, it’s the surreal story of two robots on their quest to be human…

Flavorpill gave us a nice write-up here: Daft Punk’s Electroma

Doors are at 8pm and the screening starts promptly at 9. Before and after the film we’ve got excellent local DJ team The Deuce Crew spinning a Daft Punk tribute set, and we’ll be playing Daft Punk videos and their other feature, 2003’s disco-house animated musical “Interstella 5555“. We’re also giving out VICE Records samplers with all sorts of good music to the first 100 people!!

Tickets are only $6 (cheaper than a real movie!!) and will be available at the door or you can reserve yours right now at studioamiami.com.

In other Sweat news, we’ve got the new M.I.A. single “Boyz” on special for just $3 and we’re giving out a really cool live EP from The Fratellis when you buy their album “Costello Music”!!

Thanks for a great July!! August promises a ton of cool stuff, including ROLL OUT, the Rock The Bells tour, another giant multi-media Sweat party at Churchill’s, a little something called “BAND CAMP” and the Miami jump-off of Hip Hop Karaoke!! Stay tuned…
