Five Best Concerts in Miami This Week
"Rock and Roll All Nite" with Starchild, the Demon, Spaceman, and Catman at Hard Rock Live.
Just because it's Monday, who says you can't "keep on dancing" and "party every day"?
With alt-rock, pop, and metal shows going down, we predict that you'll be doing a whole lotta rockin' and rollin'. Good luck going into the office the next morning.
Check the cut for Crossfade's best concerts this week.
OneRepublic. With Mayer Hawthorne. Tuesday, August 13, 7:30 p.m., Hard Rock Live, One Seminole Way, Hollywood; 954-797-5531; hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com. Tickets cost $30-$60 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. So you wanna live the "Good Life?" Well, we "Apologize," but you're gonna have to drive all the way to the Hard Rock Live to make that happen. Don't worry -- the guys of OneRepublic will have you "Counting Stars" the drive back home.
Legends of the Summer Tour. With Justin Timberlake and Jay Z. Friday, August 16, 8 p.m., Sun Life Stadium, 2269 NW 199th St., Miami; 305-623-6100; sunlifestadium.com. Tickets cost $43.50-$279 via ticketmaster.com. There's just something about men "dressed up in black and white" that makes women melt, especially if we're talking about the Legends of Summer. So go ahead JT and Jay Z, slip on your "Suit & Tie" and "show us a few things."
The Killers. Saturday, August 17, 8 p.m., American Airlines Arena, 601 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-960-8500; aaarena.com. Tickets cost $32.50-$65 via ticketmaster.com. Oh, the mindless things you used to do "When You Were Young..." Relieve the nostalgia of first loves, curiosity, and all that Hot Fuss with the Killers.
Icona Pop. With K. Flay and Sirah. Saturday, August 17, 9 p.m., Grand Central, 697 North Miami Ave., Miami; 305-377-2277; grandcentralmiami.com. Tickets cost $20 plus fees via ticketfly.com. Sure, almost every girl can relate to Icona Pop's hit "I Love It," but the "supersuccessful feminist pop anthem" isn't all about heartache. "I think people can hear that it's a very honest song, and people can put their own experience into that song," Jawo tells Crossfade. "Like if you have this bad job situation or something, you can put that also in 'I Love It' and just get out your anger." Sounds like our kind of therapeutic activity.
KISS. Sunday, August 18, 7 p.m., Hard Rock Live, One Seminole Way, Hollywood; 954-797-5531; hardrocklivehollywoodfl.com. Tickets cost $75-$165 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Paint your face black and white and get ready to "rock and roll all night and party every day" with the godfathers of metal themselves, KISS. Rock on.
