Singular Fashion. With DJs Benton G. and Mikey R. Friday, August 16, 10 p.m., at Gramps, 176 NW 24th St., Miami; 786-752-6693; grampsbar.com. Free. Kickoff the weekend with the industrial indie rock hits of Singular Fashion. Just be sure to get to Gramps early, starting at 6 p.m., for $2 happy hour drink specials and gooey goodness from Ms. Cheezious all night.

 

Big Night in Little Haiti. Tale of Two Nations tour with Nation Beat and Maracatu Nação Estrela Brilhante. Friday, August 16, 6 p.m., at the Little Haiti Cultural Center, 212 NE 59th Terr., Miami; 305-960-2969. Free. Get in touch with your Brazilian roots and dance the samba till o nascer do sol with the rhythmic maracatu power of Nation Beat and Maracatu Nação Estrela Brilhante.

Unlimited Devotion. A tribute to the Grateful Dead. Saturday, August 17, 10 p.m., at Tobacco Road, 626 S. Miami Ave., Miami; 305-374-1198; tobacco-road.com. Free before 9 p.m. Hey, Deadheads, you already know that legends are forever. So relive the bluesy, folky, psychedelic rock of the Grateful Dead with the devotees of Unlimited Devotion.

 

Xperimento. Fourth Anniversary Party with DJ Methods and los Herederos. Saturday, August 17, 10 p.m., at PAX, 337 SW Eighth St., Miami; 305-640-5847; paxmiami.com. Free. Xperimento is celebrating four years of its reggae/cumbia/ska/funk beats with a free bash! They're gonna "plan the party, add the people, and just throw it." But you might wanna bring your own "tea," because chances are they're gonna "wanna trip."

Indigovox. With Killmama. Saturday, August 17, at Will Call, 700 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-577-5900; willcallmiami.com. Free. Indigovox wants to dance with you "Tonite." And after you're done moving to her "electro New Wave synthpop," Killmama will make you "Lose It" with some "grimy" rock.

 

So Long Summer Series. With Hiatus Kaiyote. Saturday, August 17, 10 p.m., at Blackbird Ordinary, 729 SW First Ave., Miami; 305-671-3307; blackbirdordinary.com. Free. Hiatus Kaiyote "is the sound of serendipity." Maybe that's because the Aussie band claims to have been brought together by fate "through a series of coincidences." Destiny may have united them, but their combined talent is what's leading them to success.

Hipnosis. With Anger, Sevin Sina, and Lacerate Kingdom. Sunday, August 18, 9 p.m., at Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE Second Ave., Miami; 305-757-1807; churchillspub.com. $5. Heavy metal is definitely not the first musical genre that comes to mind when talking about the Communist country 90 miles south of us. Unless we're talkin' Hipnosis. The Cuban thrash band made its way to the States last month and the group is now in search of political asylum, proving they have no "Fear to Change."

 

So Long Summer Series. With Questlove. Sunday, August 18, 8 p.m., at Blackbird Ordinary, 729 SW First Ave., Miami; 305-671-3307; blackbirdordinary.com.

Comedy Night. With Ronnie Khalil, Will Watkins, and Steve Kopache. Sunday, August 18, 8 p.m., at the Hoxton, 1111 SW First Ave., Miami; 305-677-8466; hoxtonmiami.com. Free. Laugh your ass off with the "Egyptian sensation" and "sultan of satire" himself, Ronnie Khalil.
