Radio-Active Records' days in the Gateway Shopping Plaza are numbered, which means its grand opening at 845 N. Federal Highway is steadily approaching. We recently announced that the longtime music retail source is moving to a more visible spot, and today there are details of the opening celebration.
The daylong, blowout bash with food, live music, and some cold chillin' on Saturday, November 5, will be a righteous introduction to the new space. (It'll also be a test run for the hordes that'll be out for Record Store Day's Black Friday releases on November 25.)
Musical entertainment for the day comes courtesy of Miami's Little Beard and a couple of Death to the Sun III stars, Luma Junger and Möthersky. The latter act includes Radio-Active's own Richard Vergez, who designed the snazzy logo at the right.
