PureHoney Magazine: 2 Year Anniversary

PureHoney Magazine was started by Steven Rullman to share music that he believes in. Two years ago, the monthly magazine began publishing articles and event notices both online and in print, and they’re still going strong. For those of you living under a rock, each issue PureHoney Magazine publishes articles by several top local contributors, including a monthly feature from one of our own Tropicult contributors. Plus, each issue has an original fold out poster in the center of the magazine, usually by a up and coming local artist.

Gold x Guns x Girls x Giveaways – Metric Returns to The Fillmore

All the gold and the guns and the girls in the world couldn’t stop Canadian indie assemble, Metric, from returning to the MIA. Ever since first stepping foot on our sandy beaches in 2009 for the Art Basel Kick-Off Concert, Metric has made an annual pilgrimage to The Magic City to perform, party, and undoubtedly partake in late night (early morning) skinny dipping. Needless to say, the feeling is mutual. Perhaps it’s the profound lyrics and perfect storm of harmonious melodies (that practically personify Miami) that we love so much. Afterall, we are an egotistical bunch…Thursday, August 1st, our beloved Metric returns to The Fillmore Miami Beach! Shout-out to Bud Light for orchestrating some sort of overt marketing scheme to trick hipsters everywhere into putting down PBR’s and picking-up a bottleneck…um yeah, okay! Whatevs dudes, ultimately, Metric is playing a show soon and we are beyond stoked!

FLASHBACK: Miami 1980s Exhibit at Historic Freedom Tower

Miami’s historic Freedom Tower, which was the original home of the Miami News and then a Cuban Refugee Center, was donated to Miami Dade College (MDC) in 2008. Since, the college has not only protected the iconic structure but through well curated exhibitions, MDC’s Museum & Galleries of Art + Design (MOAD) has also established the Freedom Tower as a cultural center for visual art and design, free and open to the public, for the entire community to enjoy. Ever since MDC’s Museum & Galleries of Art + Design opened its doors, the Freedom Tower has without a doubt become one of my favorite spots to visit when adventuring around town, hungry for art. This past weekend, I finally stumbled in to check out FLASHBACK: Miami 1980s, an exhibit by freelance photographer (y compatriota mia), Alexia Fodere.
