Shows to see this week: Too Much Love picks

Welcome Back to Too Much Love’s weekly round-up of music-centric shows and events not to be missed. This Labour Day weekend is packed full of great music and potential all-nighters, so gear up for a long weekend you won’t forget… or maybe you will. We’re starting with a show with an open bar after all. God’s speed Miami music lovers.

Thursday, August 30th- Donzii and Mr. Jolt at Midway

There is only one thing better than the phrase “free live music” and that’s “open bar”. Tonight (Thursday, August 30th) Midway will be hosting the latest edition of their Coccothrinax event, featuring a live performance from no-wave/post-punk outfit Donzii, and DJ sets from Mr. Jolt (of Jolt Radio). Located in the old News Lounge space, Midway is the latest brainchild from the team behind Purdy Lounge, Blackbird Ordinary, The Bar and The Abbey Brewing Company. Featuring the chillest of patios, a pool table, craft cocktails and a unique menu of bar bites, and $1 oysters, there no reason why this place shouldn’t be your new hang. Check it out yourself tonight at the free event/show beginning at 9 pm. Friendly reminder to get there on time so as to get to the front of the line for the open bar (free well drinks and draft PBR) which will be going from 10-11 pm. More info


Friday, August 31st – Charlotte de Witte + Octo Octa @ The Ground

This Friday, in one of their double room show extravaganza’s, Floyd and The Ground will be merging their spaces to house two huge names. Presented by Link Miami Rebels, the party² will be featuring Charlotte de Witte – one of Belgium’s premier DJ’s/producers at The Ground, and Octa Octa next door at Floyd. Having been described as “champion of her own style” with “uncompromising techno”, de Witte will be spinning some of the heavy warehouse sounds that have propelled her to international fame. Octa Octa, a New Hampshire-based artist known for her house, techno, and breakbeat tracks, will be keeping things moving across the way at Floyd. The event starts at 11 pm and will go until the early hours. Tickets are available now on Resident Advisor for $20  More info

Sunday, September 2nd – Wet @ under the bridge

BYOB (beachchair) to WET at Under The Bridge this Sunday. The party will be celebrating the successful survival of us Miamians through another grueling summer, as well as the re-opening of the studio/performance space since its conversion into a live recording studio space. The improvements were thanks to their recent Knight Foundation Arts Challenge Grant and will be put to good use with the live sets to be recorded and live streamed inside. The water theme is no joke with a water slide, kiddie pools, slip and slides and water balloons all on the agenda. Music and performances will be plentiful including artists: The State Of, Smurfio and Cog Nomen to name a few. Tickets will be $10 at the door, and all proceeds go to support The Bridge in its efforts to provide free and subsidized recording services as well as event and studio rentals to Miami’s artists, activists, and musicians. The collective will also be launching their GoFundMe page at the event. Head and support them so they can keep fighting the good fight ! More info
