Last month, we introduced you to Subculture, a company of community organizers and music enthusiasts led by Phillip Roffman. In our interview with Roffman, he expressed a desire to band together likeminded locals from various artistic scenes, and mount cross-disciplinary events. Now, the first of these is coming. Mark your calendars for Sincerely Yours, Marty McFly, which takes place on Saturday, July 14.
For the evening, Subculture is transforming the Classic Gateway Theater in Fort Lauderdale, a South Florida cultural staple, into the '80s. The evening centers around a double feature of iconic movies from that decade: the teen-angst anthem The Breakfast Club, and everyone's favorite time-traveling, freaky-friday-esque cult favorite, Back to the Future.
Subculture's planned a party beyond the usual movie bill, though.
There's a long list of activities planned before, between, and after the
flicks, including sets by Fort Lauderdale DJ collective JAMS
and live performances by local acts like Suede Dudes. Local artist
Kristin Frenzel will showcase her nostalgic artwork throughout the lobby
of the theater, and Indie Craft Bazaar vendors, who you can read more
about here, will also be onsite selling one-of-a-kind crafty goodies and keepsakes.
hype for this event is steadily growing, and Radio-Active Records'
Mikey Ramirez has put together a conceptual Spotify playlist dedicated
to Sincerely Yours. Take a listen here and prepare yourself for
Subculture domination on July 14.
Sincerely Yours, Marty McFly. 9 p.m. Saturday, July 14 at the Classic Gateway Theater, 1820 E. Sunrise Blvd., Fort Lauderdale. Tickets cost $10; all ages. Click here.
