In the nightlife scene, weekly parties pop up quicker than you can learn their names. But every now and then, a party will establish itself and stand the test of time. It's happened with such local parties as Flaunt (Respectable Street) and Shake (Vagabond). And with a year under its belt, Green Room's Digital Love is out to prove it's here to stay.
In celebration of the first anniversary, the Ordinary Boys will be channeling everyone's favorite Manchester band, the Smiths, and throughout the night, resident DJs Andie Sweetswirl, Mig, and Lindersmash will be packing the dance floor. As always, there is no cover and there will be $2 PBRs and $5 craft beer specials. How can you say no to that?
Since the Ordinary Boys are performing, we put together a list of tracks we'd like for them to play. Since it's a celebration, we opted for some of the more upbeat songs from the Smiths' mostly depressing discography.
5. "Still Ill"
4. "Frankly, Mr. Shankly"
3. "Sweet and Tender Hooligan"
1. "This Charming Man"
Digital Love One Year Anniversary. 10 p.m. Thursday, February 16, at Green Room. 109 SW Second Ave., Fort Lauderdale. No cover.
