Friday, May 3

Headline: KRS-One
Where: The Stage
Cost: $20
Ages: 21+
Event Page: HERE

Notes: Hip hop legend Lawrence Parker, aka KRS-One, has never been one to live in the past. Despite dedicating his last release to the group in which he originally gained notoriety, his performances aren’t just cuts from the days of Boogie Down Productions. In 2012, the 47-year-old rapper from the South Bronx released The BDP Album, his 12th solo LP. The activist/rapper, at times controversial, even contradictory, is still very much lyrically relevant in terms of life on the street for black youth.

Thursday, May 2

Headline: Suicidal Tendencies with Sick of It All and Wake the Dead
Where: Grand Central
Cost: $25 (advance; on sale Mar. 1); $30 (door)
Event Page: HERE

Notes: Part of punk’s charm is the bands’ deep ties to their hometowns. Suicidal Tendencies (from Venice, California) and Sick of It All (from Quees, N.Y.) are perfect examples of outfits rooted and forever tied to their native lands. While Suicidal Tendencies is best known for its 1983 single “Institutionalized,” they are credited with the founding of thrash metal. Still led by vocalist Mike Muir, Suicidal Tendencies is set to release Who’s Afraid?, the band’s ninth studio album and first in 13 years.

Tuesday, April 30

Headline: Peter Murphy
Where: Grand Central
Cost: $28 (advance); $60 (meet and greet, t-shirt, signed poster)
Ages: ?
Event Page: HERE

Notes: Former Bauhaus lead singer Peter Murphy returns to South Florida, this time celebrating the 35th anniversary of the legendary goth rock band. The notoriously disagreeable singer, who played Ft. Lauderdale’s Culture Room in 2011, will dedicate his set exclusively to Bauhaus’s catalog.

Friday, April 25

Headline: Dick Dale with Gold Dust Lounge and Skinny Jimmy & the Stingrays
Where: Grand Central
Cost: $20 (advance); $25 (door)
Ages: ?
Event Page: HERE

Notes: There’s not much to say that hasn’t already been said about surf-rock guitar legend Dick Dale. If you haven’t experienced the wickedness of Dale’s sound, take advantage of the 75-year-old’s continuous gift of playing South Florida venues. Miami’s Gold Dust Lounge, who excel at interpreting surf-rock with a slight jazz bend, will join one of their heroes on stage.

Saturday, April 20

Wednesday, April 10

Headline: El Ten Eleven
Where: Bardot
Cost: $10
Ages: 21+
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “Transitions” — El Ten Eleven

Notes: Instrumental wunderkind duo El Ten Eleven (named after Lockheed’s L-1011 model airplane) returns to Bardot’s red carpet, having last played there in August 2011. Since their last trip to Miami, Kristian Dunn (bass/guitar) and Tim Fogarty (drums/synths) released Transitions, the duo’s fifth studio album. The two tech-savvy gearheads also spend time together as members of San Diego’s SoftLightes.

Saturday, April 6

Headline: Dino Felipe, Adames, Dim Past, Drug Party, El Tenedor, BBQ Bitches, Passion, and Normads
Where: Moonchine Bistro
Cost: FREE
Event Page: HERE

Notes: Billed as “Partytime” at Moonchine, this eclectic and clannish cast of South Florida musicians ranges from Dino Felipe’s addictively off-the-wall bedroom pop to Dim Past’s haunting electronica to Adames’ glitch dub. Led by prolific and unfiltered songwriter Felipe, the lineup also features This Heart Electric’s Ricardo Guerrero teaming up with Snakehole’s Casey Toimil performing as Drug Party.

Friday, April 5

Headline: Nevermind: A Tribute to Nirvana
Where: Churchill’s
Cost: FREE
Ages: 18+
Event Page: HERE

Notes: On the 19th anniversary of Kurt Cobain’s death, Churchill’s will host its third annual celebration of Nirvana’s music. Whether Nirvana is the band to which you sacrifice virgins or if you find them to be an overhyped bunch of mediocre pussies, it is difficult to deny the catchy-as-hell quality of their music. Channeling their grungy best will be The Burnout, Armada! Dorothy’s Revenge (performing their role as Hole), Drawing Bored, After the Fall, and John Torres. South Florida knows its Nirvana. Trust us, we know.

Saturday, March 30

Headline: UK
Where: Grand Central
Cost: $74.50
Ages: ALL
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “The Only Thing She Needs”

Notes: Prog nerds rejoice! A late ’70s interim band featuring peripatetic virtuosic fusion freaks, UK reformed with half of its founding members in 2012. After playing bass with King Crimson, Roxy Music, and Uriah Heep, and before forming Asia, John Wetton started UK in 1977 with ex-Roxy Music/Frank Zappa keyboardist/violinist Eddie Jobson, original Yes drummer Bill Bruford, and jazz fusion guitarist Allan Holdsworth. Long lineup story short: Bruford was replaced by famed Zappa drummer Terry Bozio, and Holdsworth left without being replaced. This gives you a current lineup of Wetton, Jobson, Bozzio, and newcomer Alex Machacek, an Austrian fusion guitarist.

Friday, March 29

Headline: Vomikaust with Devalued, Reapermanser, Terrorist, Testökra, Wet Nurse
Where: Churchill’s (outside stage)
Cost: $7
Event Page: HERE

Notes: A punk showcase with Wet Nurse, the Orlando trio we featured back in June.

Thursday, March 28

Headline: Teepee
Where: Bardot
Cost: $10
Event Page: HERE
Ages: 21+

Notes: “Local experimental musician Teepee will celebrate the beginning of a three week national tour with a rare performance at Bardot on Thursday, March 28. DJs include Mikey Ramirez from Radio-Active Records, and Mr. Jolt, owner of internet radio station Jolt Radio. CMJ profiled Teepee in June 2012; Beached Miami selected Time Meant Nothing as the #1 local single of 2012; and Miami New Times voted Distant Love one of the year’s best albums. Bring earplugs — this show is not to be missed!”*

Friday, March 22

Headline: Holly Hunt, Dim Past, Swamp Witch, Nunhex, and Death Talisman VII
Where: Churchill’s
Cost: $5
Ages: ?
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “Broken In” — Nunhex

Notes: For you musical masochists who don’t mind a little blood seeping from your ear canals, South Florida’s heaviest unite at Churchill’s to ensure a post-show car ride home in which everyone sounds like Charlie Brown’s teacher. Miami’s bombastic drone duo Holly Hunt teams with Dim Past (Slashpine alums), Lake Worth’s Swamp Witch, Nunhex (ex-Gorilla Pussy members), and Death Talisman VII (Orbweaver alums).

Wear your dancing shoes and put your phones away because this party promises to bring the house down. For media list inquiries, please email Nicole@thedFm.com.”*

Thursday, March 21

Headline: HARD Miami (Day 2)
Where: Grand Central
Cost: $25 (advance), $40 (two-day pass)
Ages: 18+
Event Page: HERE

Notes: HARD Miami Day 2 is highlighted by Claude Vonstroke, aka Barclay Crenshaw, the famed San Francisco-based house DJ, producer, and founder of Dirtybird Records. Crenshsaw is notable for his elegant production style, approaching high energy electronic music with a minimalist’s stroke and sparse landscapes. Also performing are French DJs Gessafeltstein and Brodinski, longtime Dirtybird producer/DJ Justin Martin, Destructo, Oliver, and Amtrac. The night also promises an appearance from a “very special surprise guest.”

Wednesday, March 20

Headline: HARD Miami (Day 1)
Where: Grand Central
Cost: $25 (advance), $40 (two-day pass)
Ages: 18+
Event Page: HERE

Notes: The HARD Summer concert series makes its return to Miami with the first night aptly titled “The Rump Shaker”. Day one features notable house DJ and founder of Fool’s Gold Records A-Trak (aka Alain Macklovitch) and Israeli DJ/producer Borgore, whose 2012 Decisions EP included backup vocals by Miley Cyrus. The first day lineup is filled out by RL Grime, Nadastrom, UZ, Birdy Nam Nam, Flume, Green Lantern, and French Fries.

Tuesday, March 19

Headline: Deftones
Where: The Fillmore Miami
Cost: $33
Ages: ALL
Event Page: HERE

Notes: The Deftones returned in 2012 with Koi No Yokan, the seventh studio album by the California heavy rock veterans (running strong since 1988). Despite a sound still heavily tied to ’90s alt-metal, the Deftones’ newest effort isn’t a dated stab at nostalgia, but a diverse array of songs from still-evolving rock experimentalists.

Sunday, March 17

Headline: Ultra Music Festival: Weekend One (Day 3)

Cost: $370 weekend pass only, $710 both weekends
Ages: ALL

Headline: Michale Graves (full band) with Coffin Caddies, Blood in the Bathroom, Rockit To Russia, To Be Hated, Riot Agents
Where: Churchill’s
Cost: ?
Ages: 18+
Event Page: HERE

Notes: While Michale Graves gained notoriety as the frontman for the pre-Jerry Only 1995-2000 reincarnation of The Misfits, the man also known as Michael Emmanuel has found success as a solo artist as well as with bands The Lost Boys, Graves, Gotham Road, and Marky Ramone’s Blitzkrieg. Graves’ work as a solo artist, either backed by a band or performing alone with an acoustic guitar, has led to 11 live and studio albums, with plans of releasing two more in 2013.

***

Headline: Nervous Records Showcase with Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs (DJ set), XXYYXX, Lazaro Casanova, and more
Where: Bardot
Cost: $27
Ages: 21+
Event Page: HERE

Notes: As part of the influx of notable EMD artists descending upon Miami due to Winter Music Conference, Bardot offers a night with London’s T.E.E.D. manning the tables and 17-year-old Orlando sensation XXYYXX, aka Marcel Everett.

Saturday, March 16

Where: Fillmore Miami Beach
Cost: $47.50
Ages: ALL

Notes: I’ll pay $50 to see a “band” who did this. And this. And this.

Saturday, March 9

Headline: Raekwon
Where: The Stage
Cost: $22 (pre-sale), $35 (door)
Ages: 21+
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “Prince of Thieves”

Notes: Last April, Raekwon played the Green Room with Freddie Gibbs in Ft. Lauderdale. Beached Miami contributor Ryan Ray was there to capture a set that was “like watching a better than average episode of Yo! MTV Raps live, with less DJ Jazzy Jeff and more secondhand smoke.” Raekwon may be 43 years old, but the Wu-Tang vet still keeps a demanding schedule that includes founding a new label (Ice H2O Records), last month’s Lost Jewelry EP release, the forthcoming release of his sixth solo album, F.I.L.A., and the planned 2014 release of Only Built 4 Cuban Linx…Part III.

Headline: Audio Junkie Episode Premier: The ZZZ’s/This Heart Electric
Where: Sweat Records
Cost: $3 donation (to help fund Sweatstock IV)
Ages: ALL
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “The ZZZ’s/This Heart Electric Promo” — Audio Junkie

Notes: The Alvarez brothers will premier their newest installment of Audio Junkie, a video series (usually) featuring bands from South Florida’s underground. The new episode sets its psychedelic lens on Ricardo Guerrero’s This Heart Electric and Japanese post punk trio The ZZZ’s, whose performance at The Jelly Brothers’ Art Basel Distraction show turned out to be one of Thurston Moore’s favorite concerts of the year. All donation money will go to Sweat Records’ campaign to fund Sweatstock IV, arguably the best annual music event South Florida has to offer.

Friday, March 8

Headline: Axe and the Oak, PLAINS, Manray
Where: Churchill’s Pub
Cost: ?
Event Page: HERE

Saturday, March 2

Headline: He’s My Brother, She’s My Sister with Paper Birds
Where: The Vagabond
Cost: $10
Ages: 18+ (girls); 21+ (guys)
Event Page: HERE

Notes: Los Angeles folk rock quintet He’s My Brother returns to the Vagabond nine months after playing there with Arboles Libres and Raffa and Rainer. Featuring real-life brother-sister combo Rob and Rachel Kolar, they will take the stage with Colorado indie folk rockers Paper Bird.

Friday, March 1

Headline: The Dewars and Killmama
Where: Gramps
Cost: $5
Event Page: HERE

Notes: The Dewar twins, who still call St. Augustine home after relocating from Lake Worth, bring their bizarrely beautiful melodies to Gramps. The Dewars promise one set of covers and another of originals. Sharing the headline is the newly formed Killmama, the compelling blues-drenched duo of Sophie Sputnik and Rob Kingsley. Pairing Sputnik’s avant-garde approach and howling vocals with Kingsley’s adept guitar chops, Killmama should reward your ear’s attention in 2013.

Thursday, February 28

Headline: Hundred Waters, Abdecaf, Sumsun
Where: Bardot
Cost: $12
Ages: 21+
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “Thistle” — Hundred Waters

Notes: Gainesville’s Hundred Waters, Lake Worth’s Sumsun (aka Judson Rogers), and Miami’s Abdecaf (aka Steve Vaynshtock) come together for a sensual night of varied electronic approaches. Hundred Waters, a five-piece group which vividly recalls Bjork’s pastoral settings, have garnered recent repute, and Sumsun and Abdecaf are two burgeoning solo artists with polar splits in style. Sumsun’s electronic landscapes offer meditative odes to the natural world (as I hear them), while Abdecaf revels in R&B electronica’s sensual effects.

Tuesday, February 26

Headline: “Be Creative or Die” presented by Kenny Millions
Where: Churchill’s
Cost: ?

Notes: The Kenny Millions-curated concert series takes place in the Dan Hosker studio
within Churchill’s and features a wide-variety of experimental musicians, artists, and performers. In a January interview with Rob Goyanes of Salty Eggs, Millions explained the kind of artists you can expect to see: “Because of my long tenure and experience performing and producing concerts around the world, I have a definite concept in mind when curating concerts. I chose artists who I feel have a highly creative and original voice. Originality and fearlessness are qualities that are very important to me.”

Headline: Every Time I Die, The Acacia Strain, Vanna, Hundredth, No Bragging Rights
Where: Grand Central
Cost: $18 (advance)
Ages: ?
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “Underwater Bimbos From Outer Space” — Every Time I Die

Notes: Buffalo’s Every Time I Die is still one of the most interesting metal outfits, merging astounding technical skill and a buoyantly dismissive self-image with a love for all associated metal styles. Led by Keith Buckley’s rangy and powerful vocals, ETID released its sixth studio album — an onslaught of primordial heavy metal soaked in a barrel of Adderall called Ex Lives — in 2012.

Friday, February 22

Headline: The Queers, Teenage Bottlerocket, Masked Intruder, Pool Party
Where: Churchill’s
Cost: $12 (advance), $15 (door)
Ages: 18+
Event Page: HERE

Notes: With the ever-present Joe “Queer” King still captaining the punchy punk-for-punk’s-sake ship, New Hampshire legends The Queers head back to Churchill’s to play with Wyoming’s Teenage Bottlerocket, Wisconsin pop punkers Masked Intruder, and Miami’s lovable sleaze punks Pool Party.

Thursday, February 21

Headline: Aaron Freeman (aka Gene Ween)
Where: Blackbird Ordinary
Cost: $25 (pre-sale), $30 (door)
Ages: 21+
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “Marvelous Clouds” — Aaron Freeman

Notes: Aaron Freeman, aka Gene Ween, returns to South Florida completely sober for the first time in a looooong time and with his first solo record in tow. Marvelous Clouds, Freeman’s debut album, is also a covers album, a pressure-free tribute to Rod McCuen, an obscure but oft-covered songwriter from the 1960s. Without having to worry about drumming up enough original material of his own, Freeman’s foray into non-Ween production is also a buffer that allowed him to concentrate on getting clean. The result is a remarkably Ween-like collection of songs that expertly dilly dally into unexpected genres while layering lightheartedness upon depressing and heavy themes.

Wednesday, February 20

Headline: Steve Miller with University of Miami’s Frost Concert Jazz Band
Where: Bank United Center Fieldhouse
Cost: $50 ($25 with UM student ID)
Ages: ALL
Event Page: HERE

Notes: Kudos to the University of Miami for taking the aging rocker concert and transforming it into a compelling show. Miller, instead of performing a tired show at the Hard Rock, will perform his songs with the backing of the Frost School of Music’s Concert Jazz Band, which will showcase its own arrangements of Miller’s hits.

Saturday, February 16

Headline: Grace Potter & the Nocturnals
Where: The Fillmore Miami Beach
Cost: $26.50
Ages: ALL
Event Page: HERE

Notes: With the release of The Lion the Beast the Beat, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals’ fourth studio release, the band picked up a couple of stylistic elements that made for a more complete and versatile album. Blending folk rock, country, funk, electro pop, and blues rock (with the songwriting help of Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach on a few songs), Potter’s hard-hitting vocals carry the day no matter the style.

***

Headline: Swamp Stomp Music Festival
Where: Tobacco Road
Cost: $15 (advance), $20 (door)
Ages: ALL
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “Party at Ground Zero” — Fishbone

Notes: Don’t be the fool who never experiences the powerful energy transfer of a live Fishbone performance. Dating back to their 1986 debut album, In Your Face, Fishbone succeeded in the masterful crossbreeding of punk, reggae, metal, jazz, and funk. Now considered legendary underdogs due to the lack of anticipated commercial success, Fishbone has a musical legacy that is as important as any band’s in the last 30 years. Fishbone — with three of their five original members including singer Angelo Moore, bassist Norwood Fisher, and trumpeter Dirty Kibby — will headline the all-day festival surrounded by local talent like Omine, Radio Boxer, The Politix, Juke, and many more.

Friday, February 15

Headline: Murs
Where: The Stage
Cost: $15 (pre-sale)
Ages: 21+
Event Page: HERE
Listen: “God’s Gone Crazy”

Notes: As gifted a lyricist as he is a diligent artist, Nick Carter, aka Murs, churned out three full-length albums in 2012, two of which were collaborations with 9th Wonder and Fashawn. His solo effort spared no sweat: Yumiko: Curse of the Merch Girl is a packaged album and graphic novel, one which tells the story of Yumi, a girl working the merchandise table on her boyfriend’s concert tour.

Listen: “Feline Gamma”

Notes: After nearly two months on the road, come give a warm Miami welcome home to the Arboles boys.

Headline: “Monk & Coltrane”: T.S. Monk with Nnenna Freelon and Kevin Mahogany and
the Ernie Watts Quartet
Where: Adrienne Arsht Center
Cost: $25 – $130
Ages: ALL
Event Page: HERE

Notes: Thelonious Monk’s son, who goes by T.S. Monk, is more than just notable progeny. An accomplished jazz drummer, composer, T.S. studied under Max Roach before becoming his father’s tour drummer until the elder Monk retired. On this night, T.S. will be joined by other contemporary greats in honor of his iconic father and John Coltrane.
