Holy shit balls! It’s getting hot in here! As temperatures continue to steadily rise in the 305, The Vagabond, Gummdrops, Alley Times, and, yours truly, Tropicult are launching a rockin’ Summer Concert Series this Friday night!
The shindig should set the tone for more super fun local hangs and a badass summer. Headlining all the festivities are two of Miami’s hottest local bands, Deaf Poets and Lil Daggers, together on the same night.
That ain’t it!! Charlie Woods will be dropping a special DJ set and all of the dudes from KRiSP are expected to attend. Plus, pop-up shops by our local favs, installations, BBQ, even one of Miami’s most recognized street artist, Atomik will be out there doing his thing!!

That’s not all the Benevolent Ruler has been up! We caught up with Jessy Nite who apparently has also been teaching the art of typography and hand lettering to international students at the Miami Ad School.
Every now and again I find myself longing to adventure, a getaway from the Miami madness. Some weekends I get on the road, sometimes on the A1A, and I head North with no particular destination in mind. These day trips have become my favorite way of exploring South Florida.
Word is that the Downtown Hollywood historic arts and entertainment district is transforming into a vibrant live music hot spot. This year, the City of Hollywood also initiated the Downtown Hollywood Mural Project to curate contemporary outdoor murals by some of our favorite local artist, including Luis Pinto and Jessy Nite, at key locations in Downtown Hollywood.
And so, my last day trip which had started off as a quest for bargain antiques, became a street art treasure hunt in Downtown Hollywood…
Welcome to Jessy Nite’s Tropicult.com. As you’ve probably already noticed, the Benevolent Ruler herself has taken over our site – and we couldn’t be more excited.
Through sheer creative will alone, Jessy Nite injected tropicult.com with a rigorous dose of her radical aesthetic. The result is an interactive art installation that exists only here. We love it so much, we’ll never want to take it down.
Not bad for our first-ever artist digital takeover, right? Enjoy.
For her upcoming solo exhibition, ‘Bad As I Want To Be,’ Jessy Nite is transforming the Primary Projects space into a orgy of sex, money, and drugs.
Since those things are awesome, we decided to stop by the work in progress to ask her how it was coming along…
