Absolute Lunch Break
By Spank Mia
Friday, December 7th Spank started early with the Absolut Lunch Break at the Fontainebleau with Michna (Ghostly International) on the decks, this was definitely the best lunch party around, with a wonderful sun, all the vodka you can handle and Michna providing the soundtrack, made it feel like Summer even though the calendar reads December. Later in the day, at the newly opened Gramps, they hosted Spin’s NQB8R event. It was billed as an all-day festival with great acts from Miami and abroad. We caught up with Bondax, a British production and DJ duo and local R&B artist, Stephen A. Clark. Over at the Mondrian hotel, MOCA and YoungHearts presented Nicolas Jaar performing an exclusive live set. This show was highly anticipated by many, and he did not disappoint, even if the MBPD cut his set short exactly at midnight.
Saturday, December 8th began at Gramps for Spank, once again with an alligator wrestling show. Their all-day event ran late. Over in the Midtown area, Mamey Disco and Rafi V were spinning vinyl at the Sushi Samba pop-up. The Windish Agency showcase at Grand Central was excellent. Even though Zola Jesus and Flying Lotus dropped out in the weeks before, Dan Deacon and the others billed put on an incredible show.
