I was looking more closely at this Tron as Fuck event that is going down at the original Fat Cats next week. It's the third in a series that apparently goes down the last Tuesday of every month and it looks like a pleasant cluster fuck of colliding styles and sensibilities. First off, it is one of the only things going on now, outside of Juan Basshead's shit, that is actually bringing Dubstep and Grime to the sunshine state, see DJ Phanatik and Zehl Freebase. B, it's essentially an underground party that has damn good dj's that often ply their trade in venues that don't exactly allow for extreme turntabilism and expression, i.e. DJ Trippin at Playwright's on the beach. I've seen a set of his there and he slayed it Miami Beach party style. Seeing this guy at this kind of party will give everyone a chance to hear him really go for it in the way he prefers for himself. Three, you have some really nice hip-hop in the form of Broward County's Leftoverz. Additionally, although I don't really know who Zoo Lauderdale is, some dude from them called SUBWOLF is playing. Their myspace doesn't have original tracks but it has a big thing about the 808 and a bunch of old school SoFl shit and top friends to let us know that they know their history. This shit is free as fuck, and I, for one, will be there.
