Turn on your radios today at 1pm to hear me (Lolo) on SOUTH FLORIDA ARTS BEAT with Ed Bell on WLRN (91.3 FM)!! If you miss it don’t worry, from now on I’ll be on Arts Beat every 3 or 4 months highlighting some of the great musician making waves in Miami’s independent music scene. Speaking of…
BANDS!! There is still time to drop off a 1-track CD (with your contact info clearly on it) at Sweat or the MOCA to enter the summertime BATTLE OF THE BANDS!! We’re having 3 different events (Thursday June 26th, July 24th, and August 28th) so make sure you get us your music before JUNE 6th. The winner of each event will receive a brand new Epiphone guitar courtesy of Gibson, a chance to play at a great museum, and lots of exposure!! The opening for the new music-infused show – “Sympathy For The Devil: Art and Rock and Roll Since 1967” – is next Thursday from 7 to 9 so don’t miss it.
New item alert at Sweat!! We now are fully re-stocked with the delicious PROBARS and have their whole new line of “Sweet and Savory” bars that come in amazing flavors like Cherry Pretzel, Kettle Corn, Maple Pecan, Sesame Goji and Cocoa Pistachio!! They’re made of whole foods only (no scary unpronounceable ingredients) and are getting rave reviews from the staff and customers so stop in for one today. Goes great with our coffee and espresso too…
Last but certainly not least, tonight at FRIDAYS AT THE VAGABOND, we’re proud to present the second date on the “Florida World Tour” for RACHEL GOODRICH, BAND MARINO (Orlando) and BARON VON BEAR (Orlando)!! Last night all three of them *packed* Sweat Records playing stripped-down acoustic sets so come out tonight to see everyone plugged in!! Showtime is 11pm outside and Fridays have been kicking ’til 5 in the morning so we hope to see you there.
Lolo, Jsin + the Sweat crew
