The Degeneration party series is back this Saturday, August 20, at the Bar at 1306, and this time it comes with a pretty sweet deal. Local promoters Stephany Torres and Lauren Palma are saying goodbye to the very cruel and sticky Miami summer with a series of dance parties bumping everything from Madonna to the Pixies. If you happen to be a Leo, you can also collect some free shots at the bar. (Sorry, Virgo, but your time will come soon since this will be a monthly zodiac event.)
The Cruel Summer party will have some very fine ladies behind the decks: Lauren Palma (vocalist and guitarist of Bleeth) and Solange Sarria (Heavy Drag). There will also be an old school DIY Snoopy Sno Cone Machine to beat the heat. The event is for folks ages 21 and up and has no cover.
So, stop lip-syncing that '80s Bananarama hit using your pen-turned-microphone, grab some friends, and head to 1306 this Saturday to tell summer once and for all: Go fuck yourself.
Cruel Summer. 10 p.m. Saturday, August 20, at the Bar at 1306, 1306 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; 1306miami.com. Admission is free.
