Adventurous wax purists, unite! Listen to a bizarre sampling of musical obscura from around the globe during Radio-Active Records Continental Drift event featuring the Bally-Hi Soundsystem. Sounds from all over the map both geographically and stylistically make up this audio game of truth or dare that could end up as the best night a pair of Asian pop- and psych-rock enthusiasts might ever hope to have. In public, anyhow. The cocktails will be alcohol-free, but the atmosphere itself will be intoxicating. Films of a complementary nature showing during the event will ensure that the instinct to just lie on the floor with ones eyes shut will just not do. Interact, react, and reflect as The Terragroove washes over your unsuspecting ears with samplings of folk, jazz, and microgenres like Musica Cincitta and Vodou. No clue how nature sounds will fit in, but were confident that they will. The free event runs from 7 to 10 p.m. at Radio- Active Records, located at 1930B E. Sunrise Blvd. in the Gateway Shops Plaza in Fort Lauderdale. Call 954-762-9488, or visit radio-active-records.blogspot.com.
