Ten Memorial Day Parties to Kick Off Summer in Broward and Palm Beach
2. Astrea Corporation Vinyl Release Show
5 p.m. Saturday, May 24, at Radio-Active Records, 845 N. Federal Highway, Fort Lauderdale. No cover. Call 954-762-9488, or visit radio-active-records.tumblr.com.
Celebrate the latest release of electronic trip-hoppers Astrea Corporation with free pizza and an in-store performance at Radio-Active Records. The group will perform a set to promote its limited-edition seven-inch. Each single is hand-cut into a piece of plexiglass, hand-numbered, and etched with the band's logo in the center. Only 20 of these rarities will be available for sale that day with another batch for purchase on the group's Bandcamp. This a precursor to the group's June 10 release of its EP on start-up West Palm Beach label Decades Records. Other performances by Iron Ora and Shark Anthony with DJs Sensitive Side and Lumin will enhance the aural experience.
1. Roadkill Ghost Choir
9 p.m. Friday, May 23, at Bamboo Room, 5 S. J St., Lake Worth. Presale tickets cost $15, $20 the day of the show. Call 561-585-2583, or visit bambooroomblues.com.
Described as Tom Petty by way of Radiohead, Deland's Roadkill Ghost Choir may be the best thing to come out of Central Florida since Mickey Mouse and orange juice. The group is fresh off a performance on the Late Show With David Letterman and is set to take the stage at such major music festivals as Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza. It's a great opportunity to catch this rising indie folk act in the intimate confines of the Bamboo Room.
