Friday night, in her first Miami show in almost a year, Rachel Goodrich reminded a capacity crowd at Midtown lounge Ricochet what they’ve been missing since she moved to Los Angeles. Leaving her signature ukulele and kazoo in their cases and donning a pair of red sequined pants for her homecoming, Goodrich, backed excellently by a full band, played a set that included songs off her 2011 self-titled LP, new tracks, and a swaggering version of Tinker Toys gem “Little Brass Bear”. Afro-indie rock outfit Kazoots opened up the night with a fiery performance that bodes well for the young quintet’s emergence onto the Miami music scene.

Co-presented by Beached Miami, Rachel Goodrich is set to play her first Miami gig in almost a year at Ricochet Friday night with her band, The Moneybags, and Afro-Indie Rock quintet Kazoots opening. (Live music! Grolsch beer special! RSVP on Facebook!) Made up of lead singer Inez Barlatier, bassist Cliff Magloire, lead guitarist Jayan Bertrand, vocalist Kiara Cabrera, and drummer David Cruz, Kazoots recently welcomed us and our cameras into their North Miami practice space for a performance of their namesake track, “Kazoots”. Enjoy.
