Celebrate the Final Days of Summer With the Death to the Sun Festival at Legion Park, September 26

​Before monotheism ruined the fun, humans worshiped a female god (hell, yeah!) and held huge, outdoor fuck parties to honor the beginnings and endings of seasons. Instead, we now scrunch into hard-backed pews to be lectured; spend our entire Friday nights in the dark because we're not allowed to flip the lights on; or carry carpets around and set our watches to beep five times day. Thanks a lot, Abraham. 

The organizers of Death to the Sun (a farewell to summer festival) say, "Fuck that noise," and they're on a mission to reclaim Miami for the pagans. The first step was securing the American Legion backyard (6445 NE 7th Ave, Miami) as the venue, then signing an orgy-load of local bands such as Electric Bunnies, Surfer Blood, Dino Felipe, and BFGF. And of course, since capitalism is the evil extension of Judeo-Christian ideology, admission and parking are free, and draft beers cost just $2. 

Add a slip-n-slide and a kiddie pool (no joke); six different DJs; art, fashion, video, and tattoo performances and you've got a goddamn religious experience on Saturday, September 26. Show up at 1 p.m. and never go home again. Call 305- 759-0412 or email
