By now, you've all read or heard about the launch of the Block x Blog music festival, likely a seminal moment in the history of South Florida music. With 30 local acts and DFA's Holy Ghost! in from New York, this event is blowing the ears off of your 4/20 and Record Store Day at Revolution Live.
That means that if you brave out the whole experience from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m., you can expand your knowledge on the local scene so much, that people walking down the street will stop and stare, children will tug on your sleeves, begging for attention, all because they will recognize your brilliance on the subject of South Florida music. You will emanate cool.
The organizers, 3J Hospitality and Subculture, are taking over the Revolution complex and breaking down each club into a specially curated stage.
Black Locust Society is taking over America's Backyard, the Green Room will be blasting rock and fucking roll, while Revolution will be swarming with beatheads and a few bands that might make your booty bounce. The event is also sponsored by New Times' very own County Grind, Limited Fanfare Records, Salty Eggs, Consequence of Sound, South Florida Music Obsessed, Radio-Active Records, PureHoney, and others. Whew! Together, these are basically your local musical lifeline.
Just today, Rev released the set times. Plan your smoking schedule accordingly.
