By the time you read this, Sweat Records will have turned 16. 🎂🎉🎂
But instead of making off with its newly minted driver’s license and hitting the road ala Sonic Youth’s Goo, the Miami record store and cultural hub is staying right where it is. Better than that, it’s digging its heels into the 305’s foundation.
Sweat owner and co-founder Lolo Reskin spoke with The New Tropic about the origin of the store’s name, what the next 16 years hold, and how Miamians can join the birthday fun.
The New Tropic: What neighborhood do you live in?
Lolo Reskin: Bayside.
