Jump the Shark Grand Opening in Fort Lauderdale

Jump the Shark pulled no punches for its inaugural bash. Sixteen local bands were booked to play from 5 p.m. to midnight, and 21 South Florida visual artists displayed their work in the hybrid gallery/concert venue/bar. The whole night felt like a turducken of creativity, stuffing everything South Florida art and music into one meaty mass. And the result, like a turducken, was pretty fucking delicious.
