There are literally thousands of Weston FL real estate owners who grew up on the Beastie Boys. Ever since the three rappers from New York made it big on MTV in the 1980s, they have earned quite a following down in the Sunshine State.
Onstage at Langerado Music Festival 10 years ago, the Beastie Boys were phenomenal, visiting their hardcore punk classics from the late 90s, including “Shake Your Rump” and techno dance grooves from the 90s. The three little guys played instruments while making thousands of spectators dance, dance, dance.
Music lovers with homes for sale in Weston FL experienced the original Langerado in Ft. Lauderdale Stadium Festival Fair Grounds in 2003. It included three stages and fifteen bands, such as MOFRO and Perpetual Groove, who played for approximately 3,500 ticket-holders. Hollywood hosted the second fiesta in 2004. 4,000 people came to see the single day affair with the legendary Wailers on the bill. 2005’s Langerado Music Festival was marked the first year the multi-day event was held in Markham Park. Over 10,000 spectators flocked to the massive event in Sunrise. It was also the first time the event had multiple late-night concerts at various venues in the area. The 2005 bill included the Cheese Incident, Spearhead, and De La Soul. The following year was even better, as the lineup featured the Black Crowes, Ben Harper, and the Flaming Lips. Langerado drew a reported 12,000 attendees each day.
The 2007 Langerado Music Festival featured the Grateful Dead-like jam-band genre, along with a selection of other melodic styles. Dozens of big acts headlined, including Matisyahu, the Disco Biscuits, Los Lobos, Taj Mahal, the North Mississippi Allstars, and Widespread Panic. There were multiple stages for the live entertainment, along with an area for specified for local talent.
Langerado Music Festival attendees also remember the boys’ YouTube release that summer, “The Rat Cage.” It uses a 1930s’ film noir style, utilizing the dark shading of Betty Boop. The track is not unlike their modern classic, the mid-90s’ instrumental, The In Sound From Way Out. Quite a jump off tempo and overall vibe for the New York punks who brought us “Fight for Your Right” in ‘86.
“The Rat Cage” follows a man around the city after he acquires a small package passed to him in a sandwich bought at a street stand. The contents of the parcel are never exposed. It could be underground documents for the FBI or the CIA? Capturing stylish angles and the sun’s natural backlight, the camera follows the gent through the city before making some kind of a secret trade on a public trolley.
Then it just doesn’t get any better than the fellas’ “Hey Ladies” video from 1989. All three of them are totally pimped out in their 1970s’ afros and blue Cadillac. Colorful clips include specialized hairdryers, three amigos playing guitars and dinging cowbells. Weston luxury homeowners love seeing the guys tear up a Big City dance floor full of 6-inch heels.
