So Raw Organizers Are Back With Another Show This Friday, With More Free Beer
Last month's So Raw Festival in Miami was one of the best recent celebrations of the city's burgeoning underground garagey rock and roll thing. (Click here for a slideshow of photos from the event, and here for a review). It was also one of the best deals in town: Admission every night, a paltry $10 or $18 for a weekend pass, came with all the free beer and vodka you can drink.
Well, the trick worked -- the events were packed, and fueled by good vibes, the organizers are back with another show this Friday, again at ISM Gallery in Wynwood. Admission this time around is $5, and that includes, yes, a free beer.
The lineup here features much of the same
cast of characters as the festival. Standouts Melted Sunglasses are
playing again, and another lineup highlight is Beings -- a sort of
supergroup featuring members of old Miami bands like Map of the
Universe, :nobuhjest:, and Cavity.
(Click here for an old Crossfade entry where you can snag a free Beings MP3.)
Danny Denim, usually a guitarist in Melted Sunglasses, is playing his first solo set at this show. And the headliners are out-of-towners Legendary Wings, a power-pop/garage act that hails from Kalamazoo, Michigan.
Friday, July 17. ISM Gallery, 167 NW 23rd St., Miami. Show starts at 9 p.m., admission costs $5. sorawfestival.com
