Fundraiser to Help The Bubble Features Dooms de Pop, Flees, Alex Nelson, and more, Saturday, September 19,
In this economy, people are struggling to keep their homes and jobs, and businesses are closing. If people are investing, they're doing so conservatively. So it may not have seemed especially prudent when promoters Garo Gallo and Yvonne Colon opened the Bubble four months ago. Outside of the rock-club trifecta of Respectable Street, Revolution, and Culture Room, taking a chance on a venue, even if it's not technically a "club," is risky. But Gallo and Colon didn't do it for the money. In fact, they have a long history as community arts organizers dedicated to promoting South Florida's creative base. Thus, giving underrepresented artists a platform was always the objective -- which has happily translated into some amazing parties, and, if looking at the past four months, also makes the venture a wild success.
Now it's our turn to give back. The Bubble is holding a fundraiser Saturday, September 19, to keep the spot kickin' with good local music, local art, and DIY atmosphere. Peruse art by Coma Girl, whose work will still be up from her birthday show at the Bubble tomorrow, or rock to bands like prog-punkers Dooms de Pop, Sweet Bronco, hardcore group Flees (lead singer Elyse Perez is a freakin' goddess), and singer-songwriter Alex Nelson. Admission costs $10, and $5 if you're under 21. Come support your local scene, because, if The Bubble closes, what the hell will we do before late nights at the Poor House?
