Now firmly settled into our permanent space, we are proud to present the first of what we plan to be many official in-store art exhibits by some of the myriad local talents we are blessed with here in South Florida.
For Art Basel week 2009 Sweat Records is proud to team up with the incredible people at Ft. Lauderdale’s Iron Forge Press! Their show “First Five Years” will be on display at the store though January 31, 2010 and features over 40 of the insanely awesome hand-pulled silk-screen concert posters they’ve done for shows in South Florida. The amount of detail in each one is amazing in real life, but take a digital peek:
IronForge made our Iggy shirts and we can’t recommend them highly enough for any poster, printing, graphic or t-shirt job (note to Miami bands: make more t-shirts!). Read more about IronForge and co-founders Chuck and Ian who seriously f*%king rock on their website and blog.
We’re having the opening reception in the shop tomorrow night from 7-10pm and we’ll be serving free cocktails and playing great music. Stop by then head over to The Vagabond for more of IronForge’s work and a special live set by NYC’s Telepathe!
