Lunice. With Niko Javan, Gooddroid, and JBZ. Thursday, February 20, 10 p.m., Bardot, 3456 North Miami Ave., Miami; 305-576-7750; bardotmiami.com. Tickets cost $15-$20 plus fees via showclix.com. Ages 21 and up. Get up on that trap shit and stay "Steady Flexin" with Lunice's "electro synth sounds [and] over-pounding bass."

Soulfrito Urban Latin Music Festival. With Nas, Don Omar, Juicy J, Victor Manuelle, Hector "El Torito" Acosta, Sensato, Plan B, Calma Carmona, and DJs Camilo and Enuff. Saturday, February 22, 1 p.m., Sun Life Stadium, 2269 NW 199th St., Miami Gardens. Tickets cost $54-$129 plus fees via ticketmaster.com. Visit soulfrito.com. Much like the fusion of ingredients that give sofrito its zesty flavor, Miami's own Soulfrito Urban Latin Music fest with Nas, Don Omar, Victor Manuelle, and other rappers, reggaetoneros, and salseros of the ilk is what gives the 305 its spice.
