Free From Spain, But Not Chávez

Miami’s Venezolanos — or anybody looking for a fiesta — will be hard-pressed to find a more lively celebration than the Independencia de Venezuela concert this Saturday at the Fillmore Miami Beach. Of course, thanks to wack-job dictator Hugo Chávez, Venezuela isn’t really free these days. But hey, they’ve been independent from Spanish oppression since 1821, and that’s got to be worth something. Besides, Venezuelans living stateside are always free to party, unless the Tea Party invades the Oval Office.

How better to celebrate freedom than with a concert featuring the best in Venezuelan música? Saturday’s lineup will feature reggaeton duo Franco y Oscarcito, who’ve worked with reggaeton production team Luny Tunes as well as tropipop groups Tecupae, Omar Enrique, and Bacanos.
Sat., July 3, 9 p.m., 2010
