End the world with PBR, hot dogs, art and music
According to Black Locust Society, two things will happen on Dec. 21: "1. The world will end. 2. We will party like the world is going to end." BLS seized the opportunity to launch Swarm 2012, which will feature "End of the World," a themed art exhibition curated by Blair Hess, as well as music by Lil' Daggers, Los Bastardos Magnificos, Black Seal and BLS All Stars, DJ sets by Jams, Revenant and Mayan Gosling, and hot dogs from PS561.
The event starts at 10 p.m. Dec. 21 at BLS Warehouse, 500 SW 21st Terrace, Fort Lauderdale. Admission is free and includes Pabst Blue Ribbon. If morning arrives and the world has not yet ended, you may regret the PBR, the hot dogs, and the fact that you now feel obligated to buy holiday presents for all the people you thought would be dead.
