Now and again, it becomes absolutely necessary to revisit your teen self, resetting to age 16 for a minute. Things these days can get desperate; maybe life is a permanent lost weekend, or maybe youve finally realized that becoming a millionaire is a totally bogus life goal. Either way, its time to dry out. And theres no place better for getting young and clean than the Dugout, an all-ages punk clubhouse where the motto is No smoking, no alcohol, no drugs, and no fights, and they mean it.
This Friday at 6 p.m., regain a bit of that youthful promise and some perspective when Miami indie-popsters and New Times readers choice for best band Radioboxergang up with fellow locals Divided by Silence, Marks, COFW, and Boxwood. Expect a twisted mashup of garage, punk, ska, and power pop thatll sound like your parents hi-fi getting smashed. And if the costume still fits you, break out the black Vans, black jeans, and Minor Threat tee youve got sober moshing to do. Tickets cost ten dollars at the door.
