My band, Juke, was invited to play our first Wanee Festival last year, up at the Spirit of Swanee Music Park in Live Oak, Florida.
We played the opening night's festivities, rocked out, and suffered from a bit of culture shock. This 500-plus acre park just outside Georgia is in the middle of nowhe ... More >>
How did the Stage suddenly become the best rap club in downtown Miami?
Over the next month, this two-and-a-half-year-old Design District bunker that's built its rep on roots, rock, and reggae will serve as the staging place for classic-era shows by former LOX member Styles P, booty bass pioneer Unc ... More >>
Michael Glabicki is 2 and a half years old. His bloody head is on the pavement. Tiny body still. Pupils pointed skyward. Eyes empty.
The car that nearly crushed him has finally stopped moving, but the pain is a beating drum inside his skull. And the gleaming light that shines beyond his reach is b ... More >>
"The sun is shining, the breeze is softly blowing, and we're thinking of you."
Those far-out good vibes come courtesy of your friends at the Virginia Key Grassroots Festival of Music and Dance, who've just announced the 2013 lineup for their second annual South Floridian celebration of Cajun, count ... More >>
Ever done the Swamp Stomp? And nah, dude, it ain't a muddy-ass dance.
We're talkin' about the totally homegrown 2,000 person-strong music festival that "started as a killer backyard barbecue with a bunch of bands and booze and a few friends in 2007."

Big Poppa E went down to Biscayne Bay and rowed his way to the land of dead legends. R.I.P., dude.
But his fellow musicians in Miami have banded together to raise $10,000 for a student award in his name -- the Big Poppa E Music Scholarship Endowment Fund -- so that the kids of today can have an opp ... More >>
Hungry for some bacon, booze, and rock 'n' roll?
Drag your greasy, drunk, boogie-woogie ass to The Stage on Friday night. There will be big fat piles of all-you-can-eat pork belly, endless jugs of whisky, and a fresh five-track slab of tuneage -- titled Down Low Cool -- from local no-longer-a-dirt ... More >>
Get ready to guzzle a bottle of cheap bourbon, howl about love, loss, death, and redemption, and smash a saxophone into shrapnel 'cause Juke founder and frontman Eric Garcia (AKA Uncle Scotchy) tells us, "Miami's favorite dirty blues band is going big" and adding a hot shot of fat brass to its st ...

The man might be the worst possible role model. He tells filthy jokes. He sings twisted songs. He empties entire bottles. But whatever his personal defects, Uncle Scotchy is a good fucking time. Well, until things go bad.
He will get you, your mama, and your dog drunk. He'll smile, wink, and wr ... More >>

Day 3: My Miami Music Fest triathlon concluded yesterday with a two-part event: the Miami New Times stage at Bayfront Park in the afternoon, and Charcoal Studios at night.
I was looking forward to both because we got to share the stage with the likes of King Bee and the Auctioneers from New York ... More >>
