Lead singer for booming West Palm Beach three-piece Lavola, Julia Cires:
"I had moved back from Tallahassee a few years back and went to the anniversary party to check out the music scene. In just one night, I witnessed skinheads moshing to an Animal Tropical set, the spectacle that is Viva La Vox ("whoa, zombie pirates!"), and State Of cover the Peanuts theme song. All I can really ask for in a night. "
Steve Abbott, lead singer of the swanking, ska-enamored Hard Richards:
"I saw some of the wildest shows of my life at Respectables. They include the Slackers, any of the Authority Zero shows, and Agent Orange. It is also the only club where I have lost my wedding ring on two different occasions in the pit (after playing, I always go out and dance for the other bands). Each time it was found!"
