FTL Collective Announces Launch Party on Friday, June 11, at 1921

FTL Collective, a Fort Lauderdale blog that hit the web last week with a mix of local culture and editorial, is celebrating its onslaught on the world wide Interweb with a party dubbed Under the Hood. The shindig is at Fort Lauderdale club 1921, which is most easily found with these video instructions. Judging by the monster truck and the pterodactyl featured on this flier, there's nothing subtle about the way these folks conduct their business or their partying.

No clue if the enigmatic and elusive Dennis Rodman is going to make it on Friday, but County Grind knows a few folks who can attest that the former NBA star, who spends a lot of his time partying locally, is still at it.

From FTL:

To celebrate

the premiere of Ft Lauderdale's freshest, locally focused

blog, we have invited 3 local South Florida rock bands to perform for

you guys: Miami indie rockers Rebel, post-punk

revivalists Retrocities,

and the intense duo Manifest Test Subject.

In between the bands' sets, 1921's resident spin doctor and

self-proclaimed sexiest tri-county deejay, DJ Mig Lauderdale,

will be taking requests and spinning the latest in indie dance, electro

pop, and hipster hop. If 3 sweet bands and a self promoting DJ wasn't

enough, there will be no cover charge at the door. The bar at 1921 is

cash only, so just make sure you bring some greenbacks with you. Doors

open at 10pm, and the party goes on until everyone passes out.
