This generations ironic posturing seems obsessed with previous generations habits and trends. Sometimes the imitation isnt even ironic; its more of an homage. Hipsterlicious schmoozers really relish the 80s; easy, breezy, lazy types still identify with characters in Dazed and Confused; and Phish fans idolize the 60s, their nostalgia conveniently eliminating all that social turmoil, the war in Vietnam, and those pesky political assassinations for memories of flower power. Despite all those trials, though, no movement has maintained the momentum of the mythical 60s. And of course, there are many reasons to romanticize the decade, including broken social constraints and mind-altering lifestyles. This Saturday, the Bubble will celebrate unironically, we might add the Summer of Love with all the peace and love and noodly dancing you might wish you could travel back in time for. Vendors and crafty types will be selling goodies and services such as hemp jewelry by Jennifer Robison and henna by Green Goddess. Curator/head hippie Sean Murdock will offer items that have been stashed away since the last Grateful Dead tour.
The Jimi Hendrix Experience starts at 3 p.m. Saturday at the Bubble, located at 810 NE Fourth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. Admission costs $10. Call 954-562-3804.
