Ten Memorial Day Parties to Kick Off Summer in Broward and Palm Beach
5. Boris, with Lost Pieces
11 p.m. Saturday, May 24, at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino's Gryphon Nightclub, 1 Seminole Way, Hollywood. General admission is $20. Call 954-581-5454, or visit gryphon-club.com.
If you are more a bottle-service, slick-DJ-behind-the-one-and-twos-type person, then Gryphon is your best bet this Saturday night. Boris will represent. You may have caught him before at Miami's Club Space or top international nightlife destinations like Pacha and Crobar. EDM fans know they are in good hands with this guy. He's set to effuse four-on-the-floor magic on Memorial Day with Donnie Lowe, AKA Lost Pieces, by his side presenting smooth dance-floor bangers.
4. Indie Craft Bazaar: Spring Creative
Noon to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 24, at Revolution Live, 100 SW Third Ave., Fort Lauderdale. Admission of $5 comes with a free gift bag for the first 100 guests. Call 954-785-7475, or visit getupandcraft.com.
A pop-up craft fair that'll tickle every quirky craft-lovers' fancy. The Indie Craft Bazaar is not your grandma's macrame fair. Join more than 65 independent artists, designers, and stylists selling original artwork and handmade items. Also don't miss the $3 mimosas at the stocked cash bar. Gourmet sweets, including vegan and gluten-free options, will be for sale for those in the mood to gorge.
3. Castle, with Orbweaver, Beastplague, Moirae, Kief Demon, and the Melograv Device
6 p.m. Monday, May 26, at the Talent Farm, 20911 Johnson St., Suite 111, Pembroke Pines. Tickets cost $10. All ages. Call 954-438-3488, or visit thetalentfarm.com.
If you'd rather end the long weekend knee-deep in a bevy of punishing riffs, then look no further than this performance by San Francisco doom-rock provocateurs Castle. The duo specializes in melodic, progressive, heavy-hitting numbers dealing with death and the occult. It's about as far removed from a sunny-day layabout as one can get. Also, this is a good opportunity to check out some of our finest local acts like the psychedelic metal outfit Orbweaver and the mind-melting grindcore of Beastplague.
