Another band that totally crushed it this year was Lavola, who took to Propaganda's inside stage before the clock struck midnight.
Even with lineup changes aplenty, this group had a killer 2013 and is looking to take it even further in 2014 with the release of a new album, but not before rocking people's faces one last time before the new year. And Lavola's set did get rowdy, peaking when Luis Sanabria from Bonnie Riot couldn't resist being a part of the moment and jumped on the stage to join Lavola lead singer Julian Cires for "The Queen Is Dead."
Outside, Lake Worth's very own Everymen played the only way that this band knows how: big. The crew's rough take on string instruments and its wild live show always brings the hype, and people were literally boogie-boarding on the crowd. Mandolin player Reid Worroll did the damn thing so hard, he needed medical assistance on his leg, so the set got cut short. We wish him a speedy recovery, because one thing's for sure: L Dub can't go long without a heavy dose of Everymen.
The only guy dressed up in the whole darn place was none other than Spred the Dub lead singer Mick Swigert. Having busted ass throughout 2013, playing constantly in Florida and beyond, Spred the Dub did us all the honor of hitting the stage for the first show of the new year.
With a fun "good-time reggae" show, this gang of high-performing gentlemen was the perfect choice to usher Lake Worth's music scene into 2014. And just like that, we're ready to do it all over again.
