The Best Concerts in Miami This Week, December 18-24

Are you Team Katy or Team Taylor? This week, Katy Perry's fans, affectionally called KatyCats, will rally behind the pop singer at American Airlines Arena. Perry is on tour in support of her latest album, Witness, which has received a tepid response since its release this past summer. Even the Taylor Swift dis track, "Swish Swish," failed to make much of an impression on the charts, stalling at number 46 on the Billboard Hot 100.

If tabloid drama isn't your thing, check out Nina Kraviz at Space this Saturday. The talented Russian DJ, who also holds a dentistry degree, has risen to the upper ranks of the underground techno scene. When Kraviz was in Miami earlier this year, she got behind the decks at Trade. This time, she'll make her proper debut on the Space Terrace.

Here's your music calendar. And stay ahead of all the upcoming shows with New Times' Miami concert calendar.
