    Raging Geisha

    Raging Geisha's frontwoman, Erica Sommer, is all about manipulating contrasts. There's the inherent contradiction of her band's name. There's the music, which incorporates equal parts crunching guitar rock and Timbaland-style beats and samples. Then...

    Celia Cruz Tribute Night

    The Tu Madre party, Thursdays at Cameo, holds the rare distinction of being one of the most unique club nights in Miami. Seriously. It's Latin-oriented, but don't think for a minute it's a night of ho-hum salsa and reggaeton. First the crowd: a few ...

    Window, HighRise, and City of God

    Of the five bands on the bill this Thursday at Tobacco Road, Window is easily the most hardened road dog. The group's implicit motto is "We'll play anywhere," and that it does, from representing the local color at SXSW to providing a backdrop at div...

    Ninja Man

    It takes a true dancehall aficionado to appreciate the top-ranking ghetto sounds of Jamaica's Ninja Man. This is only true because most novice listeners, if they could even understand a word he's saying, would be scared to death of him. Dubbed as "t...

    Latin in Manhattan - This year's Latin Alternative Music Conference was a genre-bending confluence of reggaeton, folk, prog rock, and beyond

    Barracuda Raw Bar and Grill

    There's not much to say about Barracuda Raw Bar and Grill (3035 Fuller St., Coconut Grove; 305-448-1144). You can smoke inside, wolf down fries and greasy burgers, and chug cheap beer. Other than a few standard features (booths, jukebox, pool table)...

    Crazy Good - With his latest album, Life Unscripted, Garcia proves he could be 305 hip-hop's next big deal

    Life Unscripted, the second full-length from Miami hip-hop stalwart Garcia, is technically a solo album. But speak to the man for a just a few minutes, and it becomes abundantly clear the disc was a family effort. He almost never uses a singular pro...

    Ryan Adams - Easy Tiger (Lost Highway)

    Since launching his solo career in 2000 -- after helping redefine the alt-country concept with Whiskeytown -- Ryan Adams has made overachievement something of a musical mantra: He released three albums in 2005 alone. Still, in Adams's case, quantity...

    El Camuy

    Not many people take late-night strolls along NE Second Avenue between 20th and 26th streets. With the exception of my group and a guy named John, a gay Coolio look-alike, the streets were bare one recent Friday night. A voice out of nowhere asked i...

    The sounds that Miami's Skymall, a.k.a. Ed Prence, makes are the musical equivalent of Tourette's syndrome, and that's meant as big praise. Frenetic beats, nasty bass, and offbeat sampling might be hallmarks of the area's electronic underbelly, but ...
