Kingdoms & Crowns Facebook
9:30 p.m., Saturday, July 20, at Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery, 2621 N. Federal Hwy, Boca Raton. Entrance is $5. Call 561-368-4643, or visit thefunkybuddha.com.
Mainstream music is sooo mainstream. To get your indie fix, turn off your radio, and head to Boca's craft beer Mecca, the Funky Buddha Lounge.
Here, local indie-alternative acts Mandy Moon, Kingdoms & Crowns, and Rachel Pearlstein will rock you into the night as you suck down hookah smoke and weird beer. Wear your "custom" fedora, take those Instagram selfies, and tag 'em all #anythingbutmainstream.
8. Black Friday 2 Year Anniversary
10 p.m., Friday, July 19, at Green Room Nightclub, 109 SW 2nd Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Free event. Call 954-449-1025, or visit greenroomlive.com.
On the much darker end of the counterculture spectrum is Black Friday. The Gothic, pleather- and crazy costume-friendly weekly party has survived two long years at Green Room. Founded by DJ LinderSmash with the skillful assistance of DJ Kaos, the party has brought out amazing musical acts, beautiful burlesque, suspension piercing with the hooked folks in full crazy regalia, and even held gamer-themed nights.
Providing live music for the anniversary festivities is Astari Nite and Shattered Glass Playground. Other entertainers include aerialist Tania Sofia Luna and the sexy fire dancing of Morgan La Rue. And, let's not forget burlesque performances provided by Lisa Ann and other local lovelies. To prep for the evening, wear only black all day, and play "Transmission" on repeat.
