The words "Design District" and "free" go together about as often as "Kanye West" and "humble." It's not exactly an area of Miami known for its live music, either.
So, you can imagine our surprise when we found out about this weekend's upcoming Day Into Night celebration happening in Miami's swankiest district.

As the name indicates, it will be a daylong, family-friendly music experience featuring a variety of talented national and local musicians with old-school influences. The shows will be spread out through different areas around the Design District, all within walking distance.
All the guitar lovers should arrive around noon to be able to enjoy chill melodies in the District's Palm Court courtesy of Ivo Carvalho, who will be joined by Colombian wind instrumentalist Jay Rodriguez, Phoenix Rivera on drums, and poet Tantra-Zawadi. If you are into dub, funk, soul, and roots music, you'll want to catch Miami locals AGAPE featuring Nadia Harris and Erick Paredes, who will play at the Melin building at 3 p.m.
Around 6 p.m., you can explore some Afro Latin soul with Jay Rodriguez and dei 7 free range music (also in the Melin building), and starting at 7 p.m. you can dance the night away with the Children of Disco along with producers Eric Kupper, DJ Richie Jones, and special guest Bonnie Pointer of the Pointer Sisters back at Palm Court.
Day Into Night. 12 p.m. Saturday, September 17, at Miami Design District, 140 NE 39th St., Miami; miamidesigndistrict.net. Admission is free.
