Kid LoreKeeping it Rough

It’s not often you find a top notch, stoner friendly garage band like Kid Lore in Miami’s less-than-ideal music scene. However, we here at Tropicult like to seek out the good stuff no matter how rare it may be. Featuring brothers Adam Tahoun (guitar and vocals) and Daniel Tahoun (drums) along with bassist Jorge Mogna, these musicians stayed true to their path from the beginning. The Tahoun brothers even attended a Miami branch of the famous School of Rock, an organization that teaches kids how to play rock instruments and start bands.

THE Magic City'sVanishing Venues Act

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.

Cul✝ Trends:Pancakes & Booze

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.
