Happy 237th birthday, America!
In honor of Independence Day, we'll be exploding massive fireworks in the sky, grilling hotdogs, drinking endless PBR, and enjoying a four-day work week. And since we live in the 305, you know we'll be jammin' to great music.
Check the cut for Crossfade's five best concerts in Miami this week, from techno to R&B to indie rock.
Christian Löffler. With Diego and Basti. Wednesday, July 3, 10 p.m., at the Electric Pickle, 2826 N. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-456-5613; electricpicklemiami.com. Löffler's deep, "melancholic, euphoric beats" will take you on emotional "Heights," so get ready for one techno roller coaster.
