If you haven't heard of Fort Lauderdale's premier venue for all things indie, The Bubble, and you've decided the city is just an artistic black hole, you'll be happy to know things are getting organized. The Bubble, founded by local promoters Garo Gallo and Yvonne Colon, is the newest establishment dedicated to nurturing underrepresented artists and musicians. Saturday, artist Lisa Parrott will be exhibiting there. It's also her birthday. Matilda Lights and Gallo's band Dooms de Pop will perform for the celebration. Wish her a happy one, by showing up at The Bubble (810 N.E. 4th Ave., Fort Lauderdale) at 6 p.m. on Saturday, September 12. Admission costs $10. There will be cake.
