Testökra took the stage at the Vomikaust show this past March and stood out (almost effortlessly) among the other bands that played that night. As the music began to explode and spill into the crowd at our beloved Churchill’s Pub, the atmosphere immediately changed. The crowd was awakened by the blaring beating life of Testökra’s electrifying set.
Testökra is made-up of three Miami natives - Carolyn Helmers (Guitar/Vocals), Nicole Mijares (Bass), and Ale Campos (Drums). Carolyn and Ale met while going to local shows and Ale met Nicole in a photography class.
Luckily, I met all three and caught up with them after the show! Here’s what they had to say…
Trek6, the man behind the infamous “Boombox” in Wynwood, has been a contributing member of Miami’s blooming street art scene since the late 80s with over a dozen murals throughout the great City of Miami.
Taking his street art to the canvas, Trek6 celebrated the unveiling of his first solo exhibit, ”Through the Looking Glass” at Hand Crafted Miami on Saturday, March 16th with pure aerosol pieces that pay tribute to the likes of Andy Warhol and Jackie O sporting eyewear from the Eyemax Collection.
Meet Lauren Ann Wolfe – stylist, fashion editor, writer, seamstress moon child, and certainly a doll of many talents. With a fashion all of her own, you can find her in Miami’s Wynwood art district in the corner of a dark and romantically-lit bar with flowers in her hair. She takes inspiration from her travels, experiences, and all things magical and weird.
I had the opportunity to meet up with Lauren, freshly exhilarated from her trip to New York Fashion Week, and we took to the closet. Take a peek into the world of L.A.W. x Dopedoll in this exclusive Tropicult collaboration.

“There is an audience that is being ignored, but they are not necessarily ignorant. They are open to art when it is open to them.” Keith Haring (May 4, 1958 – February 16, 1990)
Keith Haring was wise beyond his years, lived a very short life and produced work that endlessly communicated concepts about birth, sex, death and war. His ultimate goals were simple: raise awareness, unity and love; but on a very large scale.
