Free From Spain, But Not Chávez
Miamis 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 isnt really free these days. But hey, theyve been independent from Spanish oppression since 1821, and thats 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? Saturdays lineup will feature reggaeton duo Franco y Oscarcito, whove worked with reggaeton production team Luny Tunes as well as tropipop groups Tecupae, Omar Enrique, and Bacanos.
Sat., July 3, 9 p.m., 2010
