We need a little breather after last weekend. Thankfully, the Super Bowl is thoroughly occupying our Sunday, but if you’re looking for some culture this weekend, Miami doesn’t disappoint. Here’s what we would spend our time doing/seeing:
Friday, February 3
Burning Man is the ideal, but if you don’t like the dust, 100+ degree temps or incredible expense of the tickets, the Love Burn offers a regional taste of the signature event. Tickets are pricey ($250 and up), BUT you get to camp on Virginia Key Beach the entire time in a currency-free utopia full of music, art and community love. Details are sparse, but we heard a rumor that local love-makers Afrobeta will be showering attendees with electrons.
Saturday, February 4
North Beach Bandshell does it again! It seems a week doesn’t pass by without compelling and affordable programming from this beautiful venue (good job Rhythm Foundation!). Community Arts and Culture brings you “a mid-winter funk fantasy” including the kids from Guitars Over Guns, Roosevelt Collier, legendary trombonist Fred Wesley (James Brown bandleader wut?!) and our main-man, homeslice DJ Le Spam. Tickets are a reasonable $30 for a booty shaking night out.
Sunday, February 5
Following last weekend’s three day festival, the South Florida Bluegrass Association brings you their monthly bluegrass jam in picturesque Greynolds Park. Free to enter, but $7 to park your whip. Ends just in time for the SUPER BOWL!
Eat all the chicken wings and may the best team win! Our money is on the Pats. See you next week!
