Unlike most weekends in Broward, there aren’t a plethora of fun options for this weekend. While the weekend may lack in an abundance of interesting nightlife choices, it does provide one excellent warehouse party on Saturday night. I’m talking about SWARM 4, which being held at the Swarm Warehouse, just west of 95 in Fort Lauderdale (500 Sw 21st Terrace, FTL). Like most warehouse parties, you should expect cheap drinks, interesting artwork by local artists, and live music. Worth noting, two of my favorite local bands will be performing — gypsy punkabilly outfit Everymen and longtime Margate punk band The Shakers. If you’ve never seen or heard Everymen, expect a folkier version of early Against Me! (prior to Searching For A Former Clarity) with a better live show — the lead singer is known to spit fire, literally. Another band I don’t know much about, Ceschi, will also be performing, plus DJs Sensitive Side and Chair Weiner will be spinning.
I won’t go too much into detail since Mickie Centrone of New Times sufficiently previewed the event, but this is a party worth checking out this weekend. Unfortunately, I have to work on Saturday night, so I’ll be missing all the action. If anyone from the Black Locust Society or an attendee of this event wants to chronicle future Swarm parties or review this one (aspiring photographers welcome as well), hit me up at firstname.lastname@example.org .
Here’s a tune from Everymen:
