Winter Music Conference blows into town tomorrow. Its going to tantalize you with a flurry of sights and sounds (and drugs) and then leave you shaking in the gutter fiending for more. Were totally looking forward to that feeling, but you might be into something with a bit more longevity. Like Murkd, a party that will love you tonight and every Thursday to come.
Were trying to do something different because Miami doesnt have a really good hip-hop party. On the whole South Beach scene, they play little jiggy rap that you hear on the radio, but thats it, says Javier Ordonez, one of the organizers. He promises three-dollar tequila shots, a video installation from YouTube celeb Flipper, and DJ sets where Madame Turk and DJ Icue show off their turntable skills instead of the iPod-skip-button punch. Sure, Nas said hip-hop is dead, but from 10 p.m. to 4 a.m. at PS 14, youll realize it didnt get totally murkd out.
