Tour Flashback: “Maybe, just maybe, some of us went skinny dipping at 5am in Miami”
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! Spoiler Alert: We’ve got tickets to giveaway!
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 collegehas 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.
The Hongs have broken through the brick wall of electronic dance rock that seems to blend together in Miami. The whole South Beach, club nightlife aesthetic is seen as stale and most of the music associated with it is met with looks of boredom at best. It would take true musicality to break through that monotony, and The Hongs possess that musical intuition in droves.
This Friday, July 19th at The Vagabond, The Hongs and Beatmachines take the stage to demonstrate why they’re quickly rising to the top.
There’s something special about putting the needle down on a piece of vinyl, hearing that screechy sound, then watching it spin melodies-the movement itself an aphrodisiac for dance.
Vinyls take me back to childhood when my dad played Willie Nelson and Nat King Cole records on an old-wooden record player while we danced next to them in the living room, a sort of after dinner ritual.
My siblings and I would fight over who got to put the needle down on the record, careful not to scratch them. And, of course, there were those old-school DJ parties where amateurs scratched the vinyl like they were Mix Master Mike.
Scorpions, orange beetles, spiny spiders & stink bug carcases, all encased in glow-in-the dark resin with details of opal and sterling silver bullets – these are the handcrafted works of South Florida based jewelry designer, Haley Holeman.
Drawing inspiration from a macabre aesthetic and South Western Indian culture, Haley’s intricate and compelling designs are a labor of love that create one of a kind wearable art.
“Unusual sterling silver jewelry handcrafted for the discerning customer.”
Ever since I was born I was a science fiction fan. It came naturally to me to get engrossed in tales of UFO’s, movies about aliens and intergalactic wars, or books about dystopian futures. Cartoons were also a huge part of my childhood. So of course a large chunk of my identity screamed out in ecstasy when I found out my band,Hoffa HQ, was performing at this year’s Florida Supercon.
Florida Supercon is a huge convention hall full of cosplayers and merchandise enthusiasts, psyched for treats such as meeting Dana Snyder (voice of Master Shake) of Aqua Teen Hunger Force, or meeting voices from Metalocalypse or the classic ThunderCats.
