Ed Artigas is restless and relentless. When the Miami musician isn't hunting down beautiful women to rep power-pop bands, he's working on his record label, Spy-Fi Records. And after beloved indie rockers Bling-Bling split up last year, Artigas wasted no time in moving on to the next project, the shoegazing pop rock of Map of the Universe. This band promises to follow in the fine tradition of local rockers and play its inaugural show gratis at the secretive and hip Transit Lounge. This is just the beginning of their assault plan for 2006. An EP is tentatively scheduled to be released on local label New Art School Records as well as appear on upstart label In 3rds Records' upcoming compilation album.
