Re­spectably cool at 30

Sun Sentinel Broward Edition - Showtime - Broward - - THE GO GUIDE - Ben Cran­dell

The old ex­pres­sion “Don’t trust any­one over 30” (now more than 50 years old) has al­ways been a sen­ti­ment not to be trusted.

Does turn­ing 30 im­me­di­ately ren­der one un­cool? Tell that to Ken­drick La­mar (30 on June 17) and Drake (Oct. 24). Do you au­to­mat­i­cally lose a step, Lionel Messi (June 24)? Is Rhonda Rousey (Feb. 1) no longer tough? Is su­per­model Brook­lyn Decker (April 12) less su­per? Is Zac Efron’s (Oct. 18) six-pack no longer packed? I mean, if you can’t trust Tim Te­bow (Aug. 14), who can you trust?

Re­spectable Street, the live-mu­sic mecca in down­town West Palm Beach, will cel­e­brate its 30th an­niver­sary on Satur­day with a free party that proves the club and owner Rod­ney Mayo have lost none of their vi­tal­ity.

Of­fer­ing 30 bands on five stages, Get daily up­dates on South Florida entertainment and things to do at South Florida.com and on Twit­ter at @Ben Cran­dell the 8 p.m. event will fea­ture head­lin­ers She Wants Re­venge com­ing in from Los An­ge­les, and lead­ing lo­cals such as Ace Skully, Church Girls, Every­men, Old Habits, As­tari Nite, Octo Gato, Lavola, Milk Spot, Des­nudes, Dead and Lov­ing It, and the Water­col­ors.

Along with free ad­mis­sion, there will be an open bar from 8 to 9 p.m. and free pizza while it doesn’t last. For more in­for­ma­tion, visit Face­book.com/Re­spectableStreet.

Florida soul

Mi­ami soul artist Timmy Thomas, whose sig­na­ture key­board fu­eled his 1972 hit “Why Can’t We Live To­gether” and Drake’s 2016 smash “Hot­line Bling,” will per­form at a book sign­ing and talk by author John Capouya 7 p. m.
