So the FTLC has been covering the local scene for one year. In this day and age, a blog that lasts longer than a couple months, let alone a whole year, is something to be celebrated. Therefore, we are throwing ourselves a one-year birthday party on Saturday, June 11, and you are invited.
The Bubble (a real-world collective as opposed to our web-based collective) has agreed to host at its real-life domain at 810 NE 4th Avenue in FTL. The party kicks off early at 5:00 in the afternoon (remember, we are turning 1…think of it as a kids party). There will be a solid lineup of booze, bands, art, food, booze, photo booth, freeze pops, and I’m sure some other random madness as is common at the Bubble.

Don’t eat beforehand because we have BBQ from Jeremiah Lewis (better known as the guy with the smoker in front of Monterey Club) and vegetarian friendly fare from Frank McGuffin (formerly of Munchie One Food Truck). Photos will be taken by Valyn Calhoun and Penelope Lane Photography will be on hand with their infamous Photo FUN Booth with tons of tacky accessories. Digital Love DJ’s Mig and Andie Sweetswirl will be spinning indie and electro all evening.
The bash continues until 11:00 p.m. with an after-party at the Green Room downtown with the band Deaf Poets. It’s $10 to get in The Bubble, but that includes complimentary beer and FTL Mules (courtesy of Green Room). So stop by and have a good time, and do what the FTLC was created to do: support and enjoy the local scene.

And who knows, maybe Russell Brand will stop by and sing us a rendition of African Child.
