Junior Boys — the Canadian electropop duo of Matt Didemus and Jeremy Greenspan — are at the forefront of synth-soul electronica integration, masterfully mixing the high-end production of ’80s sophistipop with R&B rhythms and techno pulsations. In town for Winter Music Conference, Junior Boys will headline Vagabond Friday night with Entresol, Ultrademon, Zombelle, Krisp, and Mykki Blanco as supporting acts. We have a pair of tickets to give away to one lucky JB fan. To enter to win, sign up for our weekly e-blast and follow the simple instructions in the friendly “Welcome!” email. We will announce the winner, chosen at random, on the Beached Miami Facebook page on Friday morning.
As fairly forecast in our Top Ten July Music Events list, Brooklyn-based electro-pop quartet Body Language is playing the Electric Pickle on Saturday, July 16, with Miami’s Entresol. Having gigged with Passion Pit, LaRoux, Sia, and Zero 7, and recently swapped remix spit with Toro Y Moi (see video below), Body Language ventures into Miami with a bouncing bag o’ beats and a strong tailwind. Thanks to show organizers Nightdrive Miami, we have two free tickets to give away to one fortunate son or daughter. To enter the contest, leave a comment on this post and we will announce the winner — chosen with a whirl of my trusty salad spinner — on our Facebook page on Friday. Make sure you use a real email address so we can get in touch if you win. Good luck y’all! Update: Contest closed. Congrats Felicia!
