Kraftwerk’s 3-D Tour. Tuesday, September 29, 8 and 11:30 p.m. Olympia Theater, 174 E. Flagler St., Miami; 305-372-0925; olympiatheater.org. Tickets cost $58.50 to $78.50 plus fees via olympiatheater.org.
Kraftwerk's returning to Miami, bringing along a 3D spectacle and their robots. As Ralf Hütter, the sole remaining original member of the electronic supergroup, told New Times in a recent interview, "We are complete 3D. This is a 3D concert where the audience will have those paper 3D glasses. All our visuals, the complete show is in 3D projections, films, and graphic images and our visual music that we produced at the Kling Klang Studio." It's not every day the father's of dance music come to town, so if you don't have a ticket yet, change that.
alt-J. Fall Tour 2015 with San Fermin. Thursday, October 1, 8 p.m. Bayfront Park, 301 Biscayne Blvd., Miami; 305-358-7550; bayfrontparkmiami.com. Tickets cost $28.25 to $45.25 plus fees via livenation.com.
English indie rock trio alt-J is dominating music charts and breaking records across the globe. With only two full-length albums under their belt — 2012's An Awesome Wave (which sold over 1,000,000 copies worldwide and won the Mercury Music Prize, among other accolades) and 2014's This Is All Yours (which was nominated for a 2015 Grammy Award for Best Alternative Album) — the guys are embarking on the second leg of their North American tour. And this week, they'll be hitting up the Klipsch Amphitheater at Bayfront Park for their first-ever 305 gig.
Adventure Club. When Darkness Falls Tour. Thursday, October 1, 9 p.m. The Fillmore Miami Beach, 1700 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-673-7300; fillmoremb.com. Tickets cost $30 to $38.50 plus fees via livenation.com.
From hardcore pop-punk to uhntz-uhntz , Adventure Club definitely found its place in EDM. As veterans of almost every single major fist-pumping fest including New York’s Electric Zoo, Life In Color, and Ultra Music Festival, the bros are returning to the 305 and kicking off their fall tour at the Fillmore Miami Beach.
Marc Anthony is a legend. When el salsero swept his way through the Magic City last year, he made every single person at the American Airlines Arena, even those with absolutely no rhythm, get up y bailar . As an artist who can make 20,000 people do la rueda, we can only imagine the tremenda pachanga that will go down at the AAA during his two-night stand in the 305.
The Jesus and Mary Chain. Celebrating the 30th anniversary of Psychocandy. Saturday, October 2, 9 p.m. Olympia Theater, 174 E. Flagler St., Miami; 305-372-0925; olympiatheater.org. Tickets cost $40 to $75 plus fees via olympiatheater.org.
The Jesus and Mary Chain, as stated on their official Facebook bio, "made the world safe for white noise, orchestrating a sound dense in squalling feedback which served as an inspiration to everyone from My Bloody Valentine to Dinosaur Jr." But the album that really paved the way for the popularization of noise was their debut production, Psychocandy. This week, the Scottish rockers will celebrate the 30th anniversary of their legendary album at the Olympia Theater. As their only southern U.S. show, you definitely won't want to miss it.
