'80s PROM VI on Thanksgiving Eve!!

Dear friends,

Lots of good stuff going on in Sweat Records - an extremely generous donor has given us a new projector (yay! thankyouthankyou!) and we're gearing up to get not one but TWO new fish tanks!! The first one is a cute 8-gallon countertop one and then after Art Basel we'll be replacing our Red Sea Max!! Thanks to everyone who chipped in toward this and like last time, the wonderful folks at will be setting them up and filling them with beautiful, sustainably obtained sea creatures.

We've also got an amazing new shipment of BOOKS in at the shop including... Juxtapoz Magazine's new illustration and tattoo compendiums, the "Veganomicon", the new Mark Ryden and Marion Peck collaboration, restock of Banksy's "Wall and Piece", "World War Z" (which is the Sweat Books current selection), a volume of hilariously bad tattoo pictures, Shepard Fairey/Obey's "E Pluribus Venom", McSweeney's #20, books about punk rock, cupcakes, Japanese lolita girls, herb, beatniks, the Pixies and so much more!! Buy a book for yourself or someone you love today.

On to the events!! Tonight at FRIDAYS AT THE VAGABOND, we'll be turning you on to the psych-folk sounds of West Palm Beach's TOTEM POLE!! Check them out at (that's two L's) and come out to see them at midnight in the Garden. $1 beers before midnight as always!!

Tomorrow night, BROKEN SOCIAL SCENE are playing at Club Cinema in Pompano!! This Canadian collective are incredible live and we highly recommend checking them out!! General admission tickets are only 22 bucks so get your carpool together and do it!!

And it's almost here!! Next Wednesday, November 26th is Lolo + Sweat's ANNUAL '80s PROM!! We've got OUTEREACH doing '80s covers in the Grand Ballroom, followed by RAY MILIAN + CARLOS LLANOS spinning you favorite new wave and dance hits!! In the Bar Room, the unstoppable power-duo of DJ HOTTPANTS + LAHORA spin nostalgic '80s pop, booty bass and other guilty pleasures. In the Garden, VJ CHRIS VIDEO has a custom-made line-up of classic '80s music videos, movie clips, video games, retro commercials, and beyond. Besides all that, there will be the (in)famous prom photo booth with pictures by Jipsy of, $5 prom punch all night, chaperones, slow dances, elegant decorations and so much more. This year's Prom at The Vagabond so dig up your cheesiest '80s outfit and don't miss this party!!

Lolo, Jsin and the Sweat crew

P.S. Coming soon... Art Basel with tons of concerts (updated listings coming early next week) and the week after that - DAVID BYRNE LIVE AT THE FILLMORE!! We're super excited for this and will be giving away a pair of tickets in the upcoming Sweat emails so stay tuned!!
