How do we here at Crossfade typically spend our Saturday nights?
Drunk and half-naked at the club, scamming complimentary booze coupons, shaking our fat asses to neo-freestyle, and shouting stupid stuff like, "No panties on the dance floor!," while holding our nose and fake puking.
Officially described as a night of "music, drinking, eating, and social behavior," the County Grind Live Music Series stars poppy party team Afrobeta and weirdo hero Dino Felipe, alongside Sumsun, The Astrea Corporation, Boxwood, Möthersky, and This Heart Electric.
And if, like Crossfade, you're planning to pump your skull full of illicit intoxicants, here's another bit of really rad news: Local GIF wizard Bleeding Palm has been hired to blast our drug-blitzed brains with "about [???] minutes of stuff that you will only find mildly obnoxious."
It's also gonna be departing County Grind editor Reed Fischer's "final evening as a Broward County resident." So ostensibly, the Crossfade staff will be attending to bid farewell to our fine colleague and superhelpful bro as he prepares to leave behind his shorts, shades, and captain's hat to "take over as the new music editor of the Twin Cities alt-weekly City Pages."
But c'mon ... We're really going for the free beer. Oh, and the awesome opportunity to embarass ourselves.
