Wondering what’s going to be the newest fashion trend to hit the streets? One name says it all and that is, SwagrApparel. Master-mind Matt Herget a nineteen year old, Palmetto Senior High graduate, is introducing a new trend that carries much more than just a bad attitude.
Marketing a variety of shirts with guns embedded within sports team logos and an array of colors in which to choose from leaves any fan feeling extra-proud of their team, not to mention setting them apart from the rest of their city and friends. Even if you’re not a big sports fan, there is no denying a good t-shirt when you see one.
While this innovation is great, it’s not the only aspect to the SwagrApparel clothing line. Matt Herget also hand-draws flawless portraits of pop-icons mixed in with other pop-icons. It’s hard to put into words but if I had to describe it, it would be; pop-culture chopped and screwed. Read the rest of this entry »

Rah! Rah! Rah! Finally two bands I’ve wanted to see share the stage, did. The AP Music Tour put together a roster of bands that had Revolution packed on November 10th, with well-known bands such as; This Is Hell, Polar Bear Club, Emarosa, August Burns Red and Bring Me the Horizon—the last two being the ones I wanted to see and I’m pretty sure I said Polar Bear “Express” club multiple times without realizing that it was just Polar Bear Club—anyway.
The line to enter the venue was bigger than I’ve seen in quite some time, which was refreshing to see because for a while there, I thought Florida’s hardcore scene had flat lined but this proved there is still a pulse left.
Fort Lauderdale grew electric on this calm Wednesday afternoon as tour buses parked along the streets teamed with eager fans hoping to get a peek at their favorite musicians, this, along with the clamoring of hundreds, possibly thousands of people audible from a distance made it safe to say that this show was going to be awesome.

Toe tapping, hip swaying, head-shaking rock n’ roll is what seeps from Miami’s local duet, Deaf Poets. Mixing soulful blues and hook-filled rock that create a music style that keeps you pacing your feet—making it no wonder, why this duet is pumping their music through venues to wide audiences around Miami.
This duo is composed of drummer Nicolas Espinosa and guitarist/vocalist Sean Wouters. When these two play live they have the sound, and produce the energy of a ten-man-band, while maintaining the complexities found in a two. Their particular harmony and style set them apart from most musicians, and the reason why they’re gaining so-much popularity, so quickly. Their first release, “All your Lies”, got 1300 plays in just a 24 hour time span.
