The 12th Annual '80s Prom, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday!

Dear friends,

We hope you're as excited as we are for '80s Prom tonight! There's no school or work tomorrow for Thanksgiving, so get your tickets now for just $10 right here.

This year's event will be held at Steam (aka the former Vagabond) so we welcome back all the vagabonds at large, as well as our main '80s Prom crew! In the Main Ballroom Ray Milian and Tommy Gunn play all your favorite new wave and dance hits, in the Enchanted Garden Miami's beloved prom band The State Of play a full set of '80s covers, and DJ Hottpants and Alx Czo spin booty jams, freestyle, hip hop and guilty pleasures. You can also expect elegant decorations, slow dances, prom photo booth by Jipsy of, Mo cooking up food out back, $3 PBR 9-11pm, and $5 prom punch all night. Doors at 9pm (and btw the club is now smoke-free inside!).


After Thanksgiving we hope to see you at some point this weekend for Record Store Day Black Friday and Small Business Saturday! On Friday morning we’re opening at 8am sharp and stocking tons of the exclusive Black Friday releases. The full list is here:

Like on RSD, anyone waiting in line before 7:30am will get to “call” ONE pick, which we’ll reserve for you (and it's one per customer per release as always). We’ll have free (spiked) vegan egg nog and cookies for those in line, AND we're also offering 10% off ALL used LPs, 3-for-1 dollar records, clearance CDs, and giveaways on toys, CDs, and merch. The sales continue through the weekend.

Black Friday Weekend Hours:
8am to 10pm Friday
Noon to 10pm Saturday
Noon to 5pm Sunday

We really hope to see you and thank you in advance for supporting your local record stores and small businesses this holiday season!

Lolo, Emile, Jsin, Farrah, Ale, and Bootsie

P.S. Stay tuned for a big surprise announcement from Sweat Records on Cyber Monday!
