Sweat Records has air conditioning again, which means all ages in-stores and a more breathable atmosphere for browsing their increasingly awesome selection. They recently acquired a big load of used gems (a substantial portion allegedly coming from a dirty divorce) and have got a lot of crazy stuff. Beefheart imports, o.g. classic punk and metal records, the banned version of Electric Ladyland and so much more, all at super reasonable prices.
fish @ sweat
Miami local Tee Pee; one man guitar + drum machine pop haze; cool melody slurred/blurred around the edges.
sonic chicken 4
Sonic Chicken 4, from Perpignan, France. '50s American frat rock, wedding music (they could have played a great cover of "Shout" by the Isley Brothers), competent, fun, lighthearded and loud rock and roll. If it weren't a Tuesday I could see the crowd getting raucous. The situation being what it was, people kept things to appreciative head bobs and light shimmy-shuffles.
