It's a steamy Thursday night, and if you're like us, you're about to experience the Overtown club strip. Haven't been there? Just follow the waft of music, smoke, and love from the Vagabond, which overflows with boys and girls chugging Colt 45 tallboys; to the pool table at PS14; and don't stop till you get to the White Room. Goths, punks, fetishists, and nerds all congregate on the sidewalk near the entrance, a sure sign tonight hosts an outsider party called Alchemy.
Nightlife entrepreneurs Notorious Nastie and Dracula's Daughter book the acts, showcasing Miami's freshest and rawest upcoming talent. This week, Tyler Vance will perform his catchy ditties, including a new one about Michael Jackson's drug use. "The media called it 'cardiac arrest,' but I call it a fucking overdose," he says. Just don't follow in MJ's footsteps. The fun begins at 10 p.m.
