Dear Friends,

Were you one of the 38 million who tuned into Obama’s speech last night? WOW. Needless to say, we support his message. That’s why we’re reading his book in Book Club, and on Saturday, October 4th, we’ll be having a super special event to further the cause… More info on this TBA but we’re really psyched to be part of this awesome grassroots effort. Sweat already has voter registration forms available and due to popular demand any day now we’ll have cool Obama/Biden buttons, stickers and magnets so you can show your support.

Moving on!! Thanks to everyone who came out to the Wholphin screening, Pure Imagination, and last night’s BATTLE OF THE BANDS at MOCA!! All events were great and big congrats to last night’s audience-selected winners, THE ELECTRIC BUNNIES. Pick up their 7″ at Sweat Records today!!

Tonight at FRIDAYS AT THE VAGABOND we present a special live performance by RAVELSTEIN!! This multi-instrumental indie/post-punk group has been rocking weekly at “Can You Rock A Little Softer?” and tonight is their Vagabond debut – showtime is midnight outside. Additionally, our friend VJ CHRIS VIDEO will be mixing up your favorite new and classic videos in the Garden. No cover before midnight so come on out!!

We’re still having Music Movie Monday (AMERICAN HARDCORE!) this week even though it’s Labor Day. We’ll be opening at 6pm for the screening at 8. AND… don’t forget next Saturday the 6th, is Sweat’s massive “WALL OF IDOLATRY” Mural Unveiling Party!! There will be music, kegs, cupcakes and good times!! Check the New Times and Herald next week for advance press…

Lolo, Jsin + the Sweat crew
