    Quiet Riot - Raffa and Rainer ask Miami to rock a little softer

    At a venue like Churchill's, where hardcore, punk, and death metal bands dominate most nights, the best way to attract attention is by making less noise. At least that seems to be the tactic Raffajo Harris and Rainer Davies are taking with their new...

    Not-So-Dear Diaries - Nikki Sixx's new memoir is a tale of blow, hookers, and all things Mtley Cre

    From Christmas Day 1986 through January 17, 1987, Mtley Cre founder and songwriter Nikki Sixx kept a daily diary that chronicled his exploits as an unraveling cocaine and heroin addict. He's not the first, and won't be the last, to do this, but go...

    Alphabet Aerobics - Hip Hop Harry may not be the greatest rapper alive, but he's certainly the furriest

    Nas's Hip Hop Is Dead has inspired a level of fear and introspection not recently seen in the discipline. Doomsayers cite record plummeting cultural influence in their arguments, but for proof that hip-hop lives, they need look no further than the r...

    Last Chance Saloon

    Miami might be one of the southernmost locales in the eastern United States, but it hardly meets the requisites of Dixieland. Country drawls and cowboy boots are as rare as Hispanic accents and chancletas are prolific. But down where the turnpike me...

    Purple Popcorn

    Some bands try for crossover hits, and some throw Hail Marys from 60 yards out. Purple Popcorn would fall into the latter category. The Miami-based hard-rock/rap act is headed up by Danny "Styles" Schofield and Winston "Blackout" Thomas, the same pa...

    Ed Rush

    If the drum 'n' bass genre were ever to eat itself, Ed Rush wouldn't be to blame. In the early Nineties, Rush was just another way-too-serious breakdancer searching for meaning beyond his electro/hip-hop universe. As it happened, the key to his arti...

    Baby Anne

    Give Orlando-based DJ/producer Baby Anne a gold star on two counts. One, for still carrying a torch for Florida breaks, our state's woozy, psyched-out spin on electro that reached its heyday in the late Nineties. Two, for being one of the few female...

    Marco Antonio Solis

    A Troubadour for Troubled Waters - Jesse Jackson sings a city's soul to wake

    Being Jesse Jackson may not be easy, but it sure seems fun. Chicks come out of the woodwork, cats hang thick by your side, and songs slide straight out of the sky. Sure, sometimes you gotta hit up a scribbler for a ride to the gig, maybe even a m...

    Got Vinyl? - New York Citys top record dealer sets up shop again in South Florida

    Rarely does a band's name fit its music as decorously as with the Birthday Massacre. Similarly the Toronto-based quintet's sound is color-coordinated with its black-and-purple art scheme. It is Eighties big-rock balladry reupholstered for the goth-r...
