Miami became the “Magic City” in the early 1900’s due to its rapid development, apparently rising out of the sea as a full blown city seemingly overnight. But now, that same rapidity is perverting the soul of the city and performing a vanishing act with our most vibrant and historical entertainment venues.
DISCLAIMER: I am just another local artist but unlike transplanted locals, I was born and raised in Miami. I have experienced these things first hand and can see how they’re affecting our tight-knit community. Please allow me to elaborate on my slack-jawed, “Wow!” Well, it must have taken one helluva powerful magic potion with a vast variety of spices to concoct something that would slowly fool this city. Here’s the recipe.
Greetings once again fellow pot lovers. As promised, I present to you our very first TropiCanna Miami strain review! Not to say that each strain will have been grown here, but every strain will be obtained from an anonymous source providing samples from Miami dealers.
Last Friday, I went to Pancakes and Booze at LMNT to scope out the scene and grab me a few pancakes after work. Naturally, as a broke college student, when an event invite involves the phrase “ALL YOU CAN EAT PANCAKES” there is a 90% chance I’ll show up. Plus, three of my fave DJ friends Nigby, Enzymatique, and Atman, were providing the tunes for the night and being the audiophile (and pancake aficionado) that I am, there was no way I was missing this event. I dragged my tired behind across the causeway after work, grabbed my plate of pancakes and walked the room searching for fresh faces and fresh fits. I was not disappointed.

Aura the Band is homegrown Miami band, stirring up the music scene with their eclectic sound. Songs like “Listening” and the newest single, “As I Fall”, remind me of a hybrid between The Black Keys and Janis Joplin. The four-piece act is composed of Aura/vocals/guitar, Mik/Lead guitar, Alex/Bass, and Anuar/Drums. The band has been together since 2013, writing music from inspired by life experiences. Miami, meet Aura the Band.
