Downtown Delights

Biscayne Boulevard has been through a lot lately. Thanks to endless construction, persistent police patrolling, and relentless gentrification, you’re more likely to discover an adorable new boutique than a trap house, and even the seediest motels are being freshened up and de-hookerized. The Upper Eastside Garden is a landmark representation of the pretty new face of the boulevard. Now that the weather is gorgeous and the bulldozer dust has settled — or at least moved a little farther north in its ceaseless quest for street-widening — we’re all about celebrating our thoroughfare’s brightest gems. Meet us at the UEG at 7 p.m. for a session with beloved local band Awesome New Republic.

ANR is no stranger to the ins and outs of downtown — the group has played just about every hipster club, outdoor festival, and gallery crawl from Wynwood to Langerado. At the garden, the band will kick out the jams with a sweet new rhythm section. Like its MySpace page proudly states, the group is postcrunk and hard as hell.
