Long-Running South Florida Venue Looking for Help

Posted by - 11:09 AM on 09/20/13
The owner of a long-running local venue and recording studio called The Talent Farm in Pembroke Pines, FL is currently seeking a new investor or partner to take over running the establishment. In the short term, they are looking for some help to stay afloat while the future of the venue takes shape. If you'd like to help, you can donate and equally as important for those living in the South Florida area, please share the news. The Talent Farm is not only a prime location for local South Florida bands to play, but has hosted shows by many AP.net favorites such as The Wonder Years, Title Fight, Balance and Composure, Fireworks, Man Overboard and too many more to name. Chances are that most of these bands that are now large enough to headline their own tours have played here while they were up and coming. This is also the venue that offers live streaming of all their shows online for free.

I'm from Pembroke Pines. I grew up in a house that's a five-minute drive from Talent Farm and this is the place where every band in the area wants to play when they become a band. So many towns have places like this and I'm sure plenty of you guys have seen local venues come and go. I hope they can figure out a good way to move forward and find someone cool to take it over because the current owner is a great, great human.

This hurts. I love the talent farm. I've played there a lot with my band and have seen so many bands I really love there. It's the only venue of it's kind for this type of music in the area. Kevin is the best guy ever. Hopefully people can help out. Gonna try to donate soon.

This sucks so hard. Even though I live so far away from it, everyone I've ever talked to only has great things to say about TTF.

Along with Churchills, The Talent Farm is the most important venue for local bands in South Florida. I've seen so many amazing bands here that I don't know where to begin and there's really no place like it. I'll give what I can.

Mr. Burns and his son have been crucial to the SoFL music scene for years, all the while supporting the bands and keeping things DIY. I hope they figure out a way to stay afloat.

This is really sad to hear. Just about every single band that's played there LOVES it. The Wonder Years played a song dedicated to the Talent Farm at Warped Tour.

On Tuesday, Balance and Composure and Title Fight came through South Florida, and just about every band mentioned how much they love Talent Farm.

When Modern Baseball was on the way down, Ian texted me and said that everyone was stoked to come and play.

I really wish there was something I could do. I've only lived here for 2 years and in that time I've seen La Dispute, Pianos Become the Teeth, All Get Out, Make Do and Mend, Diamond Youth, Balance and Composure, Candy Hearts, The Jealous Sound, Daylight, Modern Baseball, Real Friends, and many more play. It's a sick venue and they truly treat the musicians like family.

This place is where everyone in South Florida starts going to shows, cuts their teeth in bands, and make amazing new friends. It's a landmark.

I've played at The Talent Farm back when I lived in Florida. I've seen This Is Hell and Moving Mountains there. Hope it stays.

Hope this plays stays afloat, going to be moving down to that area pretty soon (hopefully) and having a venue where bands I listen to will actually go would be sweet.
