Laz Rodriguez on His Electronic Party D-ick, Doing Drugs, and Miami's Freak Scene

Laz Rodriguez, a skinny Mexican-Cuban who, be all night, has been pushing the weirdo party scene in Miami with his electronic party, D-ick, since July 2012.

D-ick, whose name evolved from initially being called SHHHH, has happened at Gramps, Electric Pickle, Churchill's Pub during the International Noise Conference, a house, a loft, and downtown at an old bank. It has hosted DJs Greg Beato, Alfredo Sousa, Gio Ardito, Romulo del Castillo, and Brad Lovett.

Laz and I recently sat on the balcony of a friend's apartment on Biscayne Blvd. and discussed his party, Miami, taking drugs, and generally letting your freak flag fly.
