Miami's Best Free Concert of the Weekend: Neopolitan at Gramps
Gramps likes to party.

Close your eyes and imagine a Miami Vice remake, but instead of Don Johnson, a young Giorgio Moroder wears the neon suit. He walks into a bar in Wynwood and orders a drink with a little yellow umbrella. He sees a curvy blonde eying him as a band tears it up in the background. That band is Neopolitan.
The Miami-based four-piece, which combines electronic and synth-pop melodies with jazz arrangements, will celebrate the release of its debut EP with a free show this Saturday at Gramps, along with the resident vinyl DJs Mr. Jolt and Schalenberg.
The night should be an oasis for all the locals who want to party in Wynwood while avoiding the Art Walk (a little tip for the drivers: Take N. Miami Ave).
Attending Neopolitan’s show is also a perfect excuse to try Gramps’ new New York-style pizza. Yes, you read that right. Now you can dance to some groovy songs and drink a penicillin while having a slice. What a time to be a Miamian.
Neopolitan. 10 p.m. Saturday, July 9, at Gramps, 176 NW 24 St., Miami; 305-699-2669; www.gramps.com. Admission is free.
