4. World's Strongest Man and the Old Fashioned at Inkwell Pub
10 p.m. Saturday, April 19, at Inkwell Pub, 238 N. State Road 7, Margate. Visit Facebook. No cover.
World's Strongest Man will be rocking out at Inkwell Pub with songs off their newest LP I'm Sorry This Scares You. According to the band's Facebook page, it's an "introspective look on our disdain for the current state of society." Guess it's safe to say selfies are't appreciated at this show? Nonetheless, the self proclaimed "socio-political, post-rock" making duo is bound to enlighten and provide new perspective while you get silly at Inkwell.

If you're a millennial, you have no clue what it was like when you had to go into a record store to actually physically purchase music. Record Story Day offers new crowds a taste of the old.
The good news about this event is that it literally has something for everyone to get into. The older folks, a.k.a. those born before the '90s, can experience a sweet, aching nostalgia as they admire the many records on display while the younger folks can check out live performances of bands like Sweet Bronco, Deaf Poets, and Astrea Corp. For both young and"old" and even actually old, there will be free coffee and beverages provided. Happy Record Store Day! And for those who only speak in hashtags #HappyRecordStoreDay.

If you don't have any plans for Easter Sunday (you damnned heathen) or 4/20 (damnned Sober Sally), then this event is for you.
The party starts just around evening on the rooftop terrace and extends to the wee hours of Monday morning, so you may want to call in sick to work. Ashley Acosta, Ed Whitty, and Gabriel Ben will bring the dance music to the holiest Christian holiday. This party is proof that just because Ultra ended doesn't mean the fun has to too.
