Tons of people turned out for the Iggy X Sweat fundraiser for Sweat Records at the Awarehouse in Wynwood, Miami this past Saturday. As much as most people were probably hoping, Iggy didn't perform, but he did hang out the whole time, grinning most of the time and eventually, of course, losing his shirt. The man just cannot be clothed.
Live music came, instead, from local favorites the Jacuzzi Boys and Awesome New Republic, the latter of whom closed out their set with a medley of Iggy/Stooges songs "Nightclubbing," "TV Eye," and "Search And Destroy."
