Reunion for Button South | New Times Broward-Palm Beach

Reunion for Button South

Guaranteed to at least be less awkward — but certainly more booze-filled — than any of your actual class reunions, the Button South Class Reunion this weekend is going to be the gathering for any nostalgic South Florida metalhead. For those of you too young or just too wasted to remember the late ’80s to early ’90s, the Button South was Hallandale Beach’s go-to spot for punk and heavy metal.

The owner of Button South now owns Bash of Boca, which will host the reunion soiree, featuring former local favorites Canaveral, Stranger, Gypsy Queen, the Goods, Heartless, Cold Turkey, Vesper Sparrow, Rulette, Skin Tight, and Billy Livesay. All this, along with your favorite Button South bartenders and staff, and you’ll think you OD’d and went to some kind of heaven. There’s a $5 cover, but if you still have your Button South membership card, you get in for free. The reunion bash will rock on from 5 p.m. to 5 a.m Friday and Saturday at Bash of Boca (5970 SW 18th St., Boca Raton). Visit
