Miami Music Festival Previews: Blank Tape and Ghost of Gloria, Playing Tonight
Here are a few randomly selected recommendations among the many acts playing the Miami Music Festival. Visit MiamiMusicFestival.org for individual venue details. Many of these funky-named places you've never heard of are subdivisions of real venues, with made-up names just for festival purposes. Others venues are tents; Transit Lounge alone will host a couple, as well as putting on separate showcases within its walls. Three-day festival wristbands are $50 ($35 for students); one-day wristbands are $25 ($20 for students). Otherwise individual show admission is $10.
Ghost of Gloria: South Florida's best hopes for mainstream rock radio, these tireless Fort Lauderdale guys boast sharp vocal harmonies and a single produced by Don Gilmore, who gave Linkin Park its early recorded magic. Catch them on a small stage now as they're due to get snapped up by a major any day now.
