shows to see this weekend – too much love picks
Happy weekend Miami! We’ve made it over the hump, and the strobe lights at the end of the tunnel are finally in sight. Here is are latest round-up of music centric shows, events and festivals we think shouldn’t be missed.
And remember, we’d love to hear from you too. Please email in with any events you think we should include!
Thursday, June 22 – Debaser (???) @ Revolution Live Ft. Lauderdale
Who is Debaser? Rumor has is…The Pixies. Though the weekend has not technically started yet, we felt this one was exciting enough to include. The not so secret, secret show will be going down in Ft. Lauderdale’s premier venue, Revolution Live tonight, starting at 7:30pm. Debaser being the first song on The Pixies 1989 album Doolittle, it hasn’t taken long for the music masses of Miami to (hopefully) crack the code and start buying up tickets. Unfortunately as I was posting this segment, tickets have sold out; however there may still be some available at the box office so try your luck! Godspeed.
Friday, June 22 (and beyond) – The Perfect Trip: Miami Psych Fest II @ The Ground + Floyd

His sets have been described as “dance floor shamanism”, and he is known to create a textured and unruly atmosphere where-ever he’s playing.
