Swing

Swing is a drug developed for the military to stave off combat stress. To drive down the prices, the producing company released a weaker version on the civilian market as a party drug.

Many people compare life to a song, each of us riding along our own melody and genre. Some of us suffer from a boring tune, we walk through life with no inspiration and no spring in the step.   Club Kismet graciously offers the people a way to kick up the volume- a nightly concert of inspiration that comes in the shape of lasers, holograms, a dance floor, and a little pill.   No matter what sort of sonorous troubles life throws at us, those Swing tablets will get the band playing again.   We'll see you tonight.
