There was a bar that was never fully stocked and a nonexistent POS system," he says. "They’ve decided to accuse us of the theft of their CDJs. Hey, Electric Pickle, we’re not thieves — and, also, we’re turntable DJs, you dicks."
Despite the bitter end with the Pickle, the guys remain unfazed. The switch to Las Rosas has proven successful for them, and they're excited about the future.
They agree their new home has been worth the wait — they'd been planning a move but were waiting for the right venue. For their third anniversary, they're inviting everyone in the city to their love party below the red neon rose. They'll have merch giveaways and special treats. The theme is a 3-year-old's party, with balloons, candy, and kazoos for those who show up early.
Telescope Thieves says the night will stay true to its mission. "People can expect smiles and warm energy throughout the crowd, and they can expect to see people dance like no one is looking, and hopefully they’ll feel free enough to join in."
The Love Below Third Anniversary. 10 p.m. Tuesday, August 7, at Las Rosas, 2898 NW Seventh Ave., Miami; 786-780-2700; lasrosasbar.com. Admission is free.
