Five Best Concerts in Miami This Week
Monday, you're so unfair to us.
We're all just here, partying it up like we do every weekend and then you come around and make us put on our work clothes and be adults again ... Rude.
While we wish you would disappear forever, at least we've got some pretty good music to look forward to once you leave.
Just check out the five best concerts going down this week.
