Announcing COLD SWEAT!!

Dear Friends,

We’ve been having some email server issues lately but are pretty sure they’re fixed for good now.  Lots of news in Sweat-land so read on, and be sure to check our blog on the regular for all sorts of Miami/music/random posts throughout the week.

Well, Saturday at was 7th exciting installment of PURE IMAGINATION LIVE! If you STILL haven’t heard the show, you can download every single episode via iTunes or at It was an amazing, packed night – standing room only! – but oh lord was it HOT. This point brings us to the announcement of…

COLD SWEAT – a fundraiser to get the store a new A/C system! If you’ve been in the shop lately, you know that our A/C is out again and it’s freakin’ HOT IN HERRRE.  Yes, we know that we are called Sweat Records but summer is coming and this is no laughing matter!

So, this Saturday, April 11th from 7-9pm, we’ll be holding a raffle party with great prizes for everyone who throws down to the cause.  Prizes include:

  • a pair of tickets for the Depeche Mode/Peter, Bjorn and John show in September
  • a bottle of Belvedere and a table at The Vagabond
  • 2 pairs of tickets for the Nine Inch Nails/Jane’s Addiction concert in May
  • a FriendsWithYou prize package
  • a 3-pack of personal training sessions from Dan “Doormouse” Martin at CrossFit305
  • an hour-long massage from Jsin (who was a massage therapist before joining Sweat!)
  • 2 dozen Earthcakes vegan cupcakes in the flavor of your choice


Now you may be asking, how do I enter?  Well it’s easy: either donate digitally via PayPal to starting right now, come by the store, or donate at the event on Saturday.  $20 gets you one entry, $50 gets you 3 entries, and $100 gets you 7 chances to win!  You don’t have to be present at the party to win, but we will have catering by Cielo Cafè, ice cold beverages, and emcee JOSE EL REY helping us draw for the prizes!

The plan is to raise enough for a new system that will be installed before the giant party for Sweat’s 4-Year Anniversary and Record Store Day on April 18th!  Thanks for all the support!

Much love,

Lolo, Jsin + the Sweat crew
