Pink and Green cheetah print-)__600_450_q50Last weekend was incredible. This weekend is just as interesting. Find FTLC staff members at these events in the next couple days (click on the links for address and additional info) …

Friday

STS9 at Revolution - I can’t speak from experience or fandom, but I’ve heard these guys put on a great live show.

Fort Lauderdale Critial Mass – the growing bike scene down here is impressive. It’s more and more evident every last Friday of the month when I get stuck at a traffic light for 5 minutes waiting for Critical Mass bikers to pass. I think the goal is to not be stuck in traffic, and to join this group bike ride tonight.

Saturday

In our opinion, this is the day where the action really starts this weekend.

Fort Lauderdale Strikers vs Tampa Bay Rowdies – we love the Strikers, and we want you to also; however, if you can only make one game this year, this rivalry game is the one. Intensity is at an all-time high, and insults at rival fans and players is at an entertaining level. Throwing your (fairly priced) beers at Tampa players is more acceptable this game, than any other (throw at your own risk though, and only throw after the bad guys score).

Fort Lauderdale Art Walk – this Art Walk has a lot of mini events this time, and we feel the need to segment them (see below). As usual, it runs from 7-11pm, every last Saturday.

Electric Canvas Art Jam at Rolling Stock Gallery – part of this month’s Art Walk. Tons of live artists: Gina Bentivegna (the host), Jonathan Vinnazza, Hilda Vazquez, Jon Doe, Christopher Ian MacFarlane, JaFleu, Sonja Siete Santiago, Steven Marino, Quintinna Hill, Vivian Orozco, Kristin Bat, Ian Santos, Liz Melo Hutchinson, Jah Linx, Renata Cuellar, Luz Pla Angel, & Joshua Oliveira. Live music by a cello player (oooh, classy).

Dialect at C&I – Always a good party with excellent DJs. The roving Dialect has never been at C&I, but we’re big fans of the space and the people that run the space, so it’s sure to be a fun event. DJs include Twilight Note’s Adam Foster, Mikey Ramirez, Kent Lawlor (South Florida Soul Club), and Esoteric (member of JAMS)

The Bubble 4 Year Anniversary Party – It’s no secret our allegiance to The Bubble. We hosted our 1 year anniversary party there back in the day, and it was a blast. This time around, The Bubble is celebrating their 4th birthday, and they’re bringing along a ton of bands: Rob Elba (of Holy Terrors), POSTFACE, DOOMSdePOP, Whiskey River Baptism, North Atlantic Space Company, the Goddamn’ Hustle, Boise Bob and his Backyard Bandm, the Shakers, Amore Delirium , The Till of the Sweep, Travis Newbill, Haochi Waves , Mr. Entertainment, Shaved Hamsters , The Atlas Complex , Montage, and The Old Fashioned. Artists include: Priya (of Kreamy Lectric’ Santa), Kelcie Mcquaid (whose also debuting a new mural), Todd Nolan, Ruben Ubiera, Heather Pioro, Brinson Renda, W. Kelley Lucas, Sean Murdock, RadBarn (Brandon Webb), Hilda Vazquez, Jen Locane, Rachel DeJohn, Marc Bigbeard Cheever, Mike Turner, Wendy Wenderfull, May Flower, Gregory Dirr (Thought Coalition), Susan Buzzi, Melanie Garbo (Vintage Diversity), Vena Paylo, Vionette Torres, Tiffany Turner, Monky, Kara Accettola, Kelly Herndon, and Devon Saccomanno. As typical at The Bubble, it’s $10 all you can drink.

Sunday

Hopefully you saved up enough energy for cultural activity on Sunday. We have 2 events that are must-support status.

“Grow Downtown” at Flagler Garden – It’s the first event at the new community garden in Flagler Village. Although it’ll be a “blank canvas” on Sunday, the plans look amazing. A lot of people have worked their asses off to raise money to put this together for the neighborhood. Whole Foods is sponsoring the event, and there will be sangria being served.

FTL Play Your City – This is also happening at Art Walk, but FTLC plans on attending on Sunday. It’s a cool new, interactive art installation for the city, put together by Cadence Living, that showcases re-purposed pianos by artists Brian Buzzella, Luzalma Gonzalez, Richard Vergez, and
MoAFL Art School students. After this event, the pianos will be dispersed throughout town for display and gawking.

That’s all we got. Let us know what we missed (especially for tonight).
