The Best Concerts in Miami This Week, May 8-14

Can't feel your face? That's called a Tuesday at any Miami bar. For the rest of America, Canadian pop and R&B crooner the Weeknd introduced the wonders of cocaine via his breakthrough album, 2015's Beauty Behind the Madness. He'll be back in South Florida Wednesday to support his latest album, Starboy. Also returning to these swampy parts will be French rockers Phoenix, who last appeared in Miami in 2010. The band will return to the Fillmore Miami Beach, but this time on the eve of a new album, Ti Amo, which is slated to be released June 9. And in clubland, you'll find sets by Hard Festival founder Destructo, Lee Foss, Sander Kleinenberg, and Theo Kottis. Finally, close out the week with the Savannah trio the Casket Girls at Kill Your Idol.

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