Rock the Bay, Not the Boat

A new concert series hits Bayside.

Just because the hurricanes have yet to blow in doesn’t mean Biscayne Bay’s docks aren’t a-rockin’ and a-rollin’. This Thursday, beginning at 7:30 p.m., during the weekly Rock the Dockconcert series at Bayside, the concert pier will dip and skank to the ska-lectrifying sounds of Prato Principal and the hard-driving rock en español outfit Origin.

Songs such as Prato Principal’s “Inmigración” — rapped in Spanish and revved up with funky beats — leave no doubt about the band’s artistic inspiration. The streets of Kingston, San Juan, and Rio seem to converge in a kind of bad-ass break-dance central. Meanwhile, the quick-paced spacey pop sound of the Ecuadorian-Mexican-Venezuelan outfit Origin will have your beer sloshing from gleeful pogo moves reminiscent of old-school alternative music scenes. Seawater-soaked T-shirts are smelly, not sexy, so don’t bounce too close to the edge.
