Six Best Parties on South Beach This Week
Listen up, beat freaks. You don't have to wait till Friday to get your party on.
Nope. That's for our friends up north, who wish they lived in a city where the champagne is always flowing, the hard hitters come to party, and the uhntz-uhntz never stops.
We're in Miami, bitch. Now here are the six best South Beach parties this week.
John Dahlbäck. With Mednas. Thursday, May 9, 11 p.m., LIV, 4441 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-674-4686; livnightclub.com. Tickets cost $30 to $40 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. John Dahlbäck's not even 30, but the dude's already a veteran of the fist-pumping industry. He landed his first record deal at age 15. And when he's not in London managing his two record labels, Pickadoll and Mutants, or mixing smooth electro tracks in his studio, he's out dropping a "Nuke" on international dance floors.
Nicole Moudaber. With ALX. Thursday, May 9, 11 p.m., Mansion, 1235 Washington Ave., Miami Beach; 305-695-8411; mansionmiami.com. Tickets cost $15 plus fees via wantickets.com. Ages 21 and up. Bow down for the Queen of Techo. The Nigerian-born, Lebanese-raised DJ will reign over Mansion as she celebrates the release of her album Believe with the rest of us unworthy EDM slaves.
Bingo Players. Friday, May 10, 11 p.m., Story, 136 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305-538-2424; storymiami.com. Tickets cost $30 to $40 at the door. Ages 21 and up. Bingo Players are EDM wizards. Their uhntz-uhntz superpowers are so strong that the Dutch duo has turned ducks into monster assassins. Don't believe us? Just watch the video for their chart topping hit "Get Up (Rattle)." Consider this a warning.
