A Warehouse Is a Party house

The venue of choice in which to party these days is the warehouse. Because, sure, bars can add features like an art show, and we’ll dig it, but at a warehouse — Swarm Warehouse, to be exact — it’s a night at the indie circus. Swarm Warehouse happens to be owned by Squeegee Science, and we love it when our local screen-printing darlings go to the local bars: We get to pick out a design, drink, and leave with a really cool printed T-shirt, all eco-friendly; it’s much cheaper than the outrageous price of a band T-shirt. But what’s better? When they’re the ones hosting the party! Inside these walls (which are free to enter), there will be cheap drinks, tattooing by Magic City Tattoo (besides the Monterey Club, which is attached to a tattoo shop, find us a bar that offers this), an Album Cover Art Show (bars don’t have the gallery wall space like warehouses do, and tonight the walls will be decked in redesigned existing or made-up album covers), and a skateboarding demonstration by Amaxon Skateboards (sure, the now-defunct Automatic Slims had a skateboard ramp on Wednesdays, but that was just weird watching them skateboard squished in the corner). Live music will be performed by Ceschi, the Shakers, and Everymen, and when the live bands are on hiatus, the backdrop will be filled with jams provided by DJs Sensitive Side and Chair Weiner. So the musical entertainment alone covers punk, hip-hop, funk, banjos, washboards, and a fire show, among so much else. Swarm 4 is from 9 p.m. to 2 a.m. at Swarm Warehouse (500 SW 21st Terrace, Fort Lauderdale).For any questions you want answered, email [email protected] , and/or like their Facebook page, Black Locust Society.
