Over the Weekend - Fito Paez, Hercules & Love Affair and Cameo
In case you didn't hear, a short piece of Miami's history was imploded this weekend. Yes, the ill-planned Miami Arena, which spent most of its time empty than serving its actual purpose as an sports and entertainment venue, has been destroyed to make way for -- er, well what exactly we don't know. But seeing how the City of Miami proper lacks so many of the basic elements that make up most metropolitan cities -- a mall, movie theater, large urban park, bookstore or Best Buy -- we are sure they'll find something to do with it. Just please, no more condos.
Fito Paez at Knight Concert Hall
Argentine rock legend Fito Paez performed at the Knight Concert Hall at the Arsht Center for the Performing Arts for a rare U.S. appearance. Plenty of Latin America's music stars also joined him on stage to mixed results. Check out our full review here.
Hercules & Love Affair at The Vagabond
Taking a cue from its guest DJ, Back Door Bamby had itself a toga party on Saturday night. Hercules & Love Affair's DJ Andy Butler took over the 14th Street venue's decks for the night to pump out the prog-disco tunes. Click here to view the full slideshow.
Saturday at Cameo
So word was Steve Aoki canceled on his appearance at Cameo on Saturday due to the plane accident that involved DJ AM and Travis Barker. We can understand that. But in South Beach the party doesn't stop for anybody, so even an Aoki-less party must go on. Click here to view the full slideshow.
