Sweat Records is celebrating their 7th anniversary with Sweatstock 3. Saturday, April 21st is also 2012’s Record Store Day, an international holiday now in its fifth year. Hundreds of exclusive releases are made available to independent stores only and Sweat will be stocking them. All releases are first come, first serve when the store opens at 10am. This year’s official Record Store Day “Ambassador” is none other than Miami resident Iggy Pop.

The outdoor stage runs from 2pm to 11pm and will be headlined by Miami electro-pop-stars Afrobeta. Preceding them are some of Miami’s best live acts from an array of genres: Deaf Poets, Krisp,  Psychic Mirrors,  Ketchy Shuby, Plains, Arboles Libres, The Stage Of, and Jessie Jackson performing with a full band.  Also outside will be the MAM’s custom Soundbomb Bus – a classic ‘70s VW bus transformed into a mobile party- starter with DJ booth, to coincide with their current vinyl-centric exhibition, “The Record”. Manning the bus at Sweatstock will be super awesome local DJs Induce, A-train, Rob Riggs And Dj Hottpants.

There will also be loads of music and merchandise on sale as well as freebies, including treats from Miami label Other Electricities  Sweat will also be debuting several new store t-shirts for sale, with soon-to-be-iconic designs by local artist R. Grimes, Brian Butler And Iron Forge Press.

Next door, Churchill’s Pub  will be open all day with no cover (18+ only). Local blog Beached Miami are hosting the Inside Stage starting at 4pm while recent Knight grant awardees Roofless Records will be bringing their experimental-yet-high-quality programming to the Patio Stage once the sun goes down. Full lineups TBA.

 

This event is FREE & all ages.
