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!!

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…
