Just because the hurricanes have yet to blow in doesnt mean Biscayne Bays docks arent 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 Principals Inmigración rapped in Spanish and revved up with funky beats leave no doubt about the bands 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 dont bounce too close to the edge.
