During the first week of June, West Palm Beach's Respectable Street celebrates its unlucky (numerologically speaking) anniversary dubbed 13 Years of Oblivion. Highlights include Elwood (the up-and-coming white rap star poised to become the new Everlast) with Pank Shovel, on Thursday, June 1, and Sunday night's NoizeFest 2000, a free, all-night event featuring Zap, Game Four, the New Graduates, Ed Matus' Struggle, Bolting Like Michael, Pank Shovel, the Marisleysis Alien Conspiracy, Since the Accident, Groove Rockets, Just Like You, Vinyl, and Rev.
Back in Fort Lauderdale, a handful of hardened Miami acts -- Maria, Al's Not Well, Debase, Behind the Green Door, and Rhett -- visits the Culture Room on Friday, June 2. Excitable youths in the grips of spring fever will thrill to the slam-dancing frenzy that is sure to accompany the first annual "La Fiesta de Punk Rock," taking place Sunday, June 4, at the Chili Pepper. Stage ragers include Against All Authority, A New Found Glory, the Agency, the Crumbs, Foolproof, and the Come-Ons. Criminy!
