Howdy! I just returned from Panama City with Miami Fellows Class VII. It’s a cool place with a lot of similarities to Miami (but sadly I couldn’t find a record store). Here’s a quick recap of some local news and events…
If you missed it on the wall of New World Center as part of Borscht 8, Coralmorphologic’s “datamoshed deep sea doc” Natural History Redux is available now to stream via VICE’s Creators Project, or for just $5 as a 1080p download via Vimeo On Demand.
The Miami episode of WPBT and artloft’s Music Voyager series airs tomorrow (Tuesday) night at 7:30pm! Sweat Records was one of the shooting locations so keep an eye out for us.
This year’s OurMiami Public Space Challenge is open. Submit your best idea for a space that builds “a stronger sense of community by sparking social engagement between Miamians” by April 8th. The Miami Foundation will be investing $130,000 in cold, hard cash to help make the best ideas happen.
Events! Tomorrow night is this month’s “In The Mix” networker presented by the Florida Chapter of the Recording Academy. It’s a great place to meet other music industry people and make connections. It’s at R House (2727 NW 2nd Ave.) from 6:30-8:30pm.
After that head over to the shop for this month’s Casa de Haha. It’s Miami’s longest-running standup comedy night and there’s no cover (and no drink minimums) as always. 8-10pm.
On Saturday is a great benefit event presented by 6 Degrees of Techno called Riverside Relief. It benefits StarsOutreach which works with “gifted youth ages 13 to 25 and provide them with music and art training, artistic development and career opportunities in the entertainment business.” Funds raised at this event will help economically-disadvantaged kids participate in their programs. Starts at 4pm at MOVA (401 SW 3rd Ave).
Last but not least in our email and FB we debuted the official artwork for Sweatstock #5/Record Store Day 2014 on Saturday, April 19th! Big ups to Brian Butler for the illustration.
