Boxwood, Ribbon Dancer, Gallimimus, and False Flags at Respectable Street on November 17
As far as clichés go, none is more applicable to South Florida than the melting pot. And nowhere is that more visible than inside a smoky bar on Clematis Street on a show night. When Respectable Street hosts four tricounty area bands on Saturday, not only will the 561 be treated to a night of self-proclaimed "Amalgamated Youth Christian Scientist" rock by Ribbon Dancer but they're also getting a sampling of "tropical garage" via one-man, many-pedal-act Boxwood, angst-y crooning courtesy of Miami new wavers False Flags, and some hard-rock guitars from Gallimimus. The diversity's intense, like an aural embodiment of the It's a Small World ride (not the song, obvs). But what else would you expect from a place that's been consistently serving up sweet tunes and booze for more than 25 years?
