Week in Review: Broward-Palm Beach for Freaknik's Sake

Freaknik: The Musical - T-Pain & DJ Drama clip

Good afternoon! Broward-Palm Beach's contributions to Crossfade this week were greatly enhanced by Lil Wayne (and his dentist) but we can't ride that pony forever.

Nas is coming! Plus, local art-punks Alexander took over Poor House on Saturday. People who want to make flyers want to put Surfer Blood on them. See here, and here. Stephin Merritt's quotes are still far better than his music.

We found out that Henry Rollins once said: "You want to fuck, own, and kill as much as anyone else. And all

that, is what we have in common. One tragic laugh riot. No such thing

as heroes, just crazy motherfuckers with good press relations." And then he said just as much on Wednesday night at Revolution. Somehow, Ozzy Osbourne is on our cover. 70,000 Tons of Metal, the righteous cruise outta Miami next January,  just got a lot more Portuguese.

Technically, this was last week, but we still want South Florida bloggers to join our blogroll and reap all of the obvious benefits therein. And, don't forget to watch Freaknik: The Musical Sunday night at 11:30 p.m. on Adult Swim! Back to the grind on Monday.
