On Sunday, at Design District venue The Stage, one of Miami’s best drummers got a bittersweet send off before she packs her bag and heads to the West Coast to further pursue her music career. A good crowd and a slate of Miami acts — Afrobeta, BFGF, Agape f. Nadia Harris, The Charlie 3’s — came out to say goodbye to Nabedi Osorio, drummer in The State Of and a fixture of the local music scene for five years. To see many more photos from Nabedipalooza, visit the Beached Miami Facebook page.
On Saturday, Feb. 25, Beached Miami is presenting a tri-county showcase on the Electric Pickle’s soothing back patio with Sumsun from West Palm Beach, Can’t Stop and The State Of from Miami, and Honey Train from Fort Lauderdale. DJs Rich Medina, Tim Green, Brad Strickland, and William Renuart will also be on hand to man the decks indoors. For full details on the show, visit the Facebook event page. Here are a few words about each of the bands.
Sumsun: Spearheaded by West Palm Beach native Judson Rodgers, Sumsun creates electronic soundscapes with a chillwave palette that transport listeners to a land where the rain is warm and everyone dances. In 2011, Sumsun opened for Neon Indian and Sleigh Bells.
