Its no secret that on South Beach, glitz rules. Even a naive tourist whose knowledge of the Magic City stems from a few episodes of Miami Ink can tell you that. But it takes a true 305 native to know where to find underground art and music. Usually its on the mainland in gritty downtown Miami, but there are a few crannies in SoBe where independent culture still thrives. Take, for instance, Maxine Restaurant at the Catalina Hotel. Here up-and-coming artists take the stage during Fizz Wednesdays.
This month dei7 -- featuring Derin Young, Yoel Delsol, Orlando Guanche, and Daniel Stable -- plays its brand of soul mixed with Cuban rhythms. And tonight will be the last night artist Jesus Ginis Pop Carousel Horses collection is on display at Maxine, so be sure to catch the colorful and creative paintings of flamboyant fashions for merry-go-round mares. Take advantage of drink specials from 7:00 to 8:00. Music performances take place at 7:00 and 9:00.
Wednesdays, 7-9 p.m., 2007
