The night is brilliantly named Fart Basel, specifically referencing two things we're all familiar with in South Florida. The reason for the sweater? Everyone that comes gets to pose for their own Bleeding Palm Sears-style portrait. Ryan Morejon from Steam says that though this is a post-Art Basel bash, it's also a bit of a Christmas party. He calls the cheesy family photos "a holiday season staple." Our friends over at Bleeding Palm told us that they were glad to be asked to join in on the festivities: "I figured it was a chance to do something different, more interactive."
Morejon says of the concept for the farty party, "Awhile back, jokingly with my friends, I'd thought of a cool idea where during or after Art Basel, there'd be this cool house party where locals can display their own art and we'd have really sick live bands." He modeled it a bit on the first So Raw Festival with photography and bands in a relaxed setting. This time though, they're having it at a bar instead of a house and having DJs Stevezy and Two Way, Words, and Chalk bring the party jams, boogie, soul, funk, bass, and old school shit. As for the flatulent title of the event, he says, it's "just a funny name." With bass and hideous sweaters, it'll be a funny-looking gathering as well.
If you're familiar with Fox's Sherron Inn/Lounge (6030 S. Dixie Highway) at all, you know that on Tuesdays it's always been two for one, there's no cover, and it's 18 and over from 10:30 p.m. to 4 a.m.
