The final, frenzied countdown to party time has begun. In exactly three days, the Magic City's most discerning club rats -- and fanatical apparel collectors -- will swarm the Awarehouse for Saturday's Sweat X Iggy Pop T-Shirt Release. (If you haven't yet RSVP-ed, get on the list right now. Note: You still owe $10 at the door.) The Jacuzzi Boys will be there and Awesome New Republic will be there and you'll be there ... Right? 

Most importantly though, the court is gonna be commanded by everybody's favorite transplanted Miamian, Jimmy Osterberg, the King Stooge himself. Thus, today's offering of pirated musical plunder is a new-ish tune by the Iggster, entitled "Pain," pulled straight from the tracklist of the ill-fated David Lynch/Dangermouse/Sparklehouse book and CD project, Dark Night of the Soul. (The thing was half-killed by evil corporate greedheads. But thankfully, the internets are always there to resurrect the casualties of capitalism.) So download away, this song is a profound nugget of goofy genius -- "I'm a mix of god and monkey!" -- that will undoubtedly get you started on the road to preparedness for party time with Mr. Pop. 

Saturday, August 22. The Awarehouse, 559 NW 29th St., Miami. Event runs from 8 p.m. to midnight. Admission costs $10. All ages. 305-342-0953; sweatrecordsmiami.com

Keep Miami New Times Free... Since we started Miami New Times, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Miami, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism.
