All we can tell you, for certain, about Laser Wolf Productions is what the world wide web tells us: that it's an intergalactic wolf pack that inexplicably finds South Florida's climate hospitable, that it's about 30 years old, and that it plans to "do things" (ominous much?) in Fort Lauderdale.
To uncover more details, we eavesdrop, hide in dark alleys, and collect reports and gossip at local haunts. Turns out, the intentions behind the Wolf are innocent enough: They're opening a new hangout. But until then, the interstellar troupe is interested in winning over hearts and minds with an event Saturday, July 24 -- the subtly titled "Because We Like to Party" -- that will feature Web Low Boys (move the first "B" over), Blond Fuzz (formerly Stonefox), and Miami band Beings, a group that Surfer Blood whole-heartedly endorses (phew!) and that marries Sonic Youth and Built to Spill for what a friend described as an indie-rock Torche.
(Fun fact: Beings will support Torche on their upcoming tour and will
leave soon after this event.) Because We Like to Party will also feature
pieces by local artists Erick Arenas and Shroud Eater bassist
Janette Valentine, among others.
The party starts at 6 p.m. Saturday at a Laser Wolf warehouse annex located
at 1145 NE Ninth Ave. in Fort Lauderdale. For more information, visit
