The Best Concerts in Miami This Week, December 25-31

The final full week of 2017 is here, and there's just enough time for a few more live performances to close out the year.

Macy Gray must have enjoyed her June performance at the Faena Theater, because she'll return to the Mid-Beach venue this week. Best known for her hit "I Try," Gray hasn't stopped releasing music. Last year, she dropped her tenth album, Stripped, which saw her take her music in a jazzy direction.

In the northern stretches of Broward County, RL Grime will take over Club Cinema with plenty of heavy beats. Also, don't miss Hot Chip's return to Miami for a DJ set at the Ground, while Dutch producer San Holo hits the decks upstairs at Space.

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