The best time of the week is finally here: the weekend. Miami offers just about every activity this weekend. On the music front, you can catch Kaskade at Story, Eric Prydz at Space, Matt and Kim at Revolution Live, Damien Rice at Olympia Theater, and Chance the Rapper at the Fillmore. Jam out with Becky G at the iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina 2015 at the American Airlines Arena on Saturday night. Or check out the Miami International Auto Show at the Miami Beach Convention Center where the world’s biggest auto manufacturers and auto aficionados will come together in a blissful, oil-soaked marriage.

Here's a glimpse at what our city has to offer this weekend, so get up and get ready for another memorable, Miami-style weekend.

Friday:

  • Miami Make Week at LAB Miami: A ten-day celebration of creative co-working, the event will include workshops, panels, open houses, networking opportunities, and other gatherings — all revolving around a design contest where teams will pitch their home-design prototypes to a panel of local product experts at the closing event.
  • Miami International Auto Show at Miami Beach Convention Center: For ten days in November, the world’s biggest auto manufacturers and auto aficionados will come together in a blissful, oil-soaked marriage at the Miami International Auto Show, with 40-plus car-makers showcasing more than a thousand new cars.
  • ICA Speaks at Palm Court Plaza - Miami Design District: This edition of the lecture series welcomes Richard Tuttle, who since the mid-1960s has made a lasting impression on postminimalist work through sculpture, painting, drawing, printmaking, artist’s books, installation, and furniture.Tuttle will discuss new work and old projects in Miami, as well as the speculative future of art.

  • Kaskade at Story: Kaskade doesn’t just believe in Miami’s music scene. The West Coast dance music superstar has bought into it. Super Music Group is a 305-based management company that started as a means to represent DJ, producer, and former Miami resident Amtrac. Since 2010, founders Derek Walin and Brandon Kessler have expanded the mission and the roster to include Craze, Robb Bank$, DZA, Sluggers, Ape Drums, Posso, among others.
  • Fur Coat at Trade: The hype that's built up around Fur Coat has just as much to do with the sheer appeal of the act's psychedelic tech-funk grooves and the brooding intensity of its live sets. This sound and approach has made them right at home on Damian Lazarus's beloved Crosstown Rebels and druggy dancefloors around the world.

  • Brazilian Girls at North Beach Bandshell: From 2005 through 2008, Brazilian Girls released three albums that were guaranteed to start a party no matter how stodgy the occasion. Singer Sabina Sciubba, drummer Aaron Johnston, keyboardist Didi Gutman, and bassist Jesse Murphy make up a rare group without a guitarist. Yet that doesn't stop them from creating the sound and hedonistic vibe of a 21st-century Blondie.

Saturday:

  • Matthew Dear at Bardot: “Avant-garde pop” is not a genre you hear every day, but it’s a perfect analysis of Matthew Dear’s adventurously catchy electronic productions. Dear will perform as the very special first guest in a new party series presented by Bardot. Once a month, Marinate will bring internationally renowned DJ-producers to the carpet for long-form DJ sets designed to show what talented people can do given free reign.
  • Matt and Kim at Revolution Live: Revel in the indie-pop radiance of Matt and Kim as the Brooklyn duo brings their New Glow to Revolution Live. "With charming smiles, saccharine, almost childlike demeanors, and the fortitude to crowd-surf over thousands of fans, Matt and Kim," as explained in a recent New Times article, will make you dance.
  • Chance the Rapper at The Fillmore Miami Beach: With a brand new track under his belt — appropriately titled "Angels" — Chi-Town lyricist Chance the Rapper will be bringing his Family Matters Tour to the Fillmore Miami Beach this week. Because even with all that fame, Chance proves that at the end of the day, family is, well, all that really matters.

  • iHeartRadio Fiesta Latina 2015 at American Airlines Arena: One minute, you're posting covers of your favorite artists on YouTube. The next, you're sharing the stage with them at the American Airlines Arena. Instances like this are a rarity, but such was the case for Becky G.
  • Eric Prydz ar Space: It isn't easy straddling commercial success and underground credibility in the world of electronic dance music. But Swedish superstar DJ-producer Eric Prydz makes it seem effortless. Whether he's topping the charts with feel-good dance pop under his own name or challenging even the most seasoned prog house and techno heads as Pryda or Cirez D, his music always exemplifies uncompromising production quality.

  • Sufjan Stevens at Olympia Theater: It seems the world just can't get enough of Sufjan Stevens. After completing a North American spring tour earlier this year in support of his latest album, Carrie & Lowell — in which Stevens explores the dark aftermath of his mother's death — the indie folk singer announced the second leg of his tour, which took him overseas to Europe. This week, though, he'll be stateside, making a rare Magic City appearance at the Olympia Theater.

Sunday:

  • Flamenco Frequencies at Miami-Dade County Auditorium: Flamenco Frequencies is a performance artwork that mixes contemporary sensibilities with the cultural tradition of Casa Patas. The thrilling flamenco performance brings to the Miami stage Karen Lugo, an award-winning choreographer and dancer, who offers a repertoire sure to thrill individuals who adore the flamenco art form and those who have never experienced it.
  • Coconuts Music Festival at Haulover Beach Park: This year’s edition of the annual musical tribute to all things tasty and tropical will feature a daylong live concert (with Mr. Nice Guy, Mojo Scoundrels, and the Rockaholix), family activities, and tons of coconut edibles. There’ll be fresh coconuts to drink, food trucks selling Caribbean eats, coconut shot put, and coconut casting, plus tons of other coconut-themed craziness.
  • Damien Rice at Olympia Theater: Watch Damien Rice's Favourite Faded [Fantasies] come to life at the Olympia Theater. Considered to be one of the more influential singer-songwriters of the century (Ed Sheeran is said to have Rice's name inked on his body, which is both flattering and creepy) this will be one very special Miami show you won't want to miss.
