Oh boy! If you are in Florida (OR CAN GET HERE REAL FAST), have I got a couple of AHHH-MAAAYYYY-ZIIIING gigs for you to attend this weekend, January 4th and 5th! Because of the Herculean efforts of many good-hearted and fantastically attractive people, one of my very favorite musicians, (Good Ol') Lars Finberg (A-Frames, Wounded Lion, The Intelligence, Thee Oh Sees) has flown 3000 real jet miles to play and DJ at two unique, one-time-only performances at Dada in Delray Beach, FL. and Gramps Bar in Miami.

On the 4th, Dada and Kismet Vintage and Pure Honey are hosting a Velvet Underground Night with Lars performing with West Palm Beach locals and Florida's Dying recording artists Cop City Chill Pillars (along with other fine locals Beach Day, Black Seal, DJ Disney Dad, and others). The bands will be doing select VU songs, and the night also includes themed drinks and goodies, a raffle, and a vintage clothing showcase that will donate 25% of the proceeds to Delray Beach's nonprofit community Arts Garage. It's as close as you are ever gonna get to Warhol's Factory days...but with palm trees! Wear your dark sunglasses and get your banana-cover groove on! All ages! (Dada, 52 N. Swinton, Delray Beach, FL., 9PM-2AM)
Miss Ten: What is your FULL NAME?
Miss Ten: Lars, why are you in South Florida?
Miss Ten: What kind of food feeds your stomach?
Marianne: You recently did some recording with Thee Oh Sees. How did that go? How awesome was it??
Marianne: What's on the agenda for the Intelligence for 2013?
Stacy: Where is your favorite place to be?
Miss Ten: Have you ever met the Beatles?
Lars: I like to take a visual thermometer and decide. Likely R 'n B and oldies? Or hip hop?
Stacy: When did you eat last and what did you eat?
Lars: Lentil soup, 4 hours ago.
Marianne: Did you bring some cool merch to sell at the gigs?
Lars: Two shirts and records and some mild humor.
So, tell your friends, bring your mom and your dad and your cousin and your fake aunt and your stepstepstep-sisters, and come out and see Lars and all the rest of these sweet musicians on January 4th at Dada in Delray and January 5th Gramps in Miami! (Come say hi to me, too, I'll be photogularing!) Thanks, all!
