Native Seeds III + ARTOPIA Saturday!!

Dear Friends,

Thanks for the great response about last week's open call to host events at Sweat!! So far people have come to us about everything from vegan potlucks to local authors sharing their work. We're scheduling everything in and will have a ton of events coming up through February and March!!

Lots of new music in at the store, this week brings us new albums by The Magnetic Fields among others!! We've also just received a huge shipment of awesome, funky, artsy, punk rock and hard-to-find books and magazines. Make sure to be Sweat's friend on myspace because we're posting bulletins with pics, contests and random info all throughout the week!! We're at myspace.com/sweatrecords.

Speaking of books, the first selection of the freshly reinstated SWEAT BOOKS Book Club is Irvine Welsh's latest novel "Bedroom Secrets of the Master Chefs"!! As the author of Trainspotting, The Acid House, Filth and more, Welsh is definitely a favorite around Sweat HQ. We'll have copies in next week or feel free to pick one up at one of the excellent BOOKS & BOOKS locations around Miami. The meeting will be Wednesday, February 27th at 8pm. Be there and be square...

Tonight Sweat represents at the JAM @ MAM!! I'm spinning and it's a celebration of the awesome "Miami Contemporary Artists" book. Full info below, 5pm to 8.30.

This Saturday two exciting events are taking place near enough to each other to hit both!! First is "Native Seeds III" - the annual fundraiser for LegalArt, a fantastic local non-profit that provides artists with free legal advice, grants, seminars and more. Come out for bingo, free beer, a live performance by RACHEL GOODRICH, and movies by the last Native Seeds grant winner CLIFTON CHILDREE. It starts at 7pm at The Standard Hotel on the Venetian Causeway.

And then... Sweat Records is proud to be a co-sponsor of ARTOPIA 08 - The Miami New Times' 20th Anniversary Celebration!!!! This blowout event has SO MUCH going on including live performances by THE SPAM ALL STARS, RAFFA AND RAINER and ANR, DJ sets by DJ HOTTPANTS, THE DEUCE CREW, BLACK JESUS and RYAN EVANS, fashion shows, live art, food, drinks, dancers, performance art and tons of other eye and ear candy!! There's also free vodka 9 to 11pm. Pre-sale ends tonight at midnight and gets you in for $15, or it's $20 at the door. Big congrats to the New Times, we hope they'll be around in 2025 when we celebrate Sweat's 20th...

Cheers,
Lolo, Jsin + the Sweat crew

P.S. Next Tuesday the 22nd we're breaking in our fancy new projector and screen with the first 4 episodes of Flight of the Conchords!! We'll have popcorn and copies of the DVD will be on sale. Swing by around 10pm to grab a comfy seat!!

SWEAT BOOKS Returns + Moving On...

Dear Friends,

Now that we once again have a spacious area to meet in (and are getting more and more settled), we are happy to announce...

a) The return of the SWEAT BOOKS BOOK CLUB!! Next week we'll announce our first selection, which will be available at the shop for everyone's convenience.

b) The creation of a whole handful of new clubs, meet-ups, sessions and interest(ing) nights at Sweat!! We're talking about science club, craft night, music discussion groups, music video night, foreign film, origami, politix, Guitar Hero, demo listening sessions... for people who would rather have some good old fashion human interaction instead of TV or computers all evening, and perhaps even learn something... If you are interested in helping out/presenting something, feel free to contact us.

All these events will be in the emails, posted on the blog, listed on the calendar on our myspace, and available soon in RSS feeds, iCal subscriptions, and any other geeky way we can figure out.

Other quickie points:
+ Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings last week were fantastic!
+ By popular demand, Sweat now stocks PROTECTIVE SLEEVES FOR YOUR LPs and 7"s, HARD-TO-FIND CARRYING CASES for your 7"s, and RECORD FRAMES!
+ Brand new Upper Eastside Green Market Saturday 9am-3pm at Legion Park (66th + Biscayne)
+ Japanese Snack Tasting Sunday 2-4pm at Tate's Comics (Ft. Lauderdale)
+ We have SO MUCH new music in that it would take us a ridiculous amount of time to type everything up.

Tonight at Churchill's is a really cool event called FLICKER - it's a showcase of local independent filmmakers and visual artists, with DJs and live performances by AFROBETA, KING BEE, TERESO and more!! Full info in the listings below - check it out and then come next door and see all our new swag...


Lastly, we'd like to inform you that as of this week, Sweat Records will no longer be hosting or promoting "Circa Saturdays", Saturday nights at Circa 28. They want to take Saturdays "in another direction" and we wish them the best of luck. Thanks to everyone who came out for almost a year - we brought some amazing shows (Velveteen Pink, The Black Kids, Muscles, loads of locals...) had awesome parties on Bastille Day and Cinco de Mayo, threw CD release parties, cupcake parties, and danced 'til 5am to sets by 40-something of the best DJs South Florida is lucky enough to have around. Thanks to everyone who wrote about the party, reposted our bulletins and spread the word of what we were doing to their friends - we never made one single flier.

Needless to say this isn't the end, just another new beginning (and we're used to those). Thanks everybody!!

Cheers,
Lolo, Jsin + the Sweat crew
