No Age & Otto von Schirach ‘Live Posters’ @ SWEATSTOCK

Monday, April 19th, 2010

On Saturday April 17th, we projected two video loops during ‘Sweatstock’; a free, all-day, all-ages block party in Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood celebrating Sweat Records 5-year anniversary.  For No Age (Sub Pop), Sweatstock’s headliner, we projected the neon green mouth of a Fungia sp. coral that actively ‘smiled’ over the energetic performance and enthusiastic audience, as seen in the video above.

Prior to No Age, we displayed an undulating, double-mouthed Ricordea florida polyp for Otto von Schirach‘s swamp-freak take on Miami Bass electronica (below).

We are proud to have helped contribute to what we consider was the best music festival Miami has seen in recent memory. Congrats and thanks to Lolo and Sweat Records for an awesome 5 years of organizing and promoting our Miami music scene; the Magic City would be a lot less magical without your hard work and drive.
