Like a hipster boy who just got dumped by his admittedly too-perfect girlfriend, White Room's having a tough time bouncing back from its recent breakup with local queen of cool, Poplife. Especially harsh was the fact that the bitch (er, Poplife, in this case) immediately shacked up with that new, glossy motherfucker down the street (the Electric Pickle) and got right down to business having a whole bunch of pretty little party puppies.
Anyway, I ... uh, White Room, rather ... finally figured shit out and decided to fuck away the pain with a different party every Saturday night. Or, at least, that's the plan until another long-term girlfriend comes around to fill the gaping hole at the heart of my ... uh, White Room's ... weekly lineup.
In that spirit, tomorrow night's gonna be a group thing. Providing the foreplay, there'll be five Miami-based bands, including Arboles Libres, DorksMoronsGeeks, Aria Kamikaze, Saga High, and Diego Val. Then later, the truly hardcore action will come courtesy of disco punk crew Old Wives' Tale. All in all, it should be a very satisfying one-night stand, proof even that White Room's doing just fine without you, Poplife. Slutting it up and loving it. Sorta.
Saturday, October 3. White Room, 1306 N. Miami Ave., Miami. Doors open at 10 p.m. Ages 21+ with ID. whiteroommiami.com.
