Around Town: Laura Bush, Afrika Bambaataa, Fetish Parties, Rick Ross, Diddy, and Busta Rhymes

We're guessing most of you already know about the shower of hip-hop events hitting Miami this long weekend, but allow us to point out some other events worthy of your time and cash. There's a saucy Fetish party happening all weekend in Broward. If you're willing to sport a gag ball, we think you might also be willing to endure the drive up.


  • Laura and Jenna Bush make an appearance at Books & Books. The former first lady has written a memoir that bags on Dubya's bad decisions.
  • Tucked away in a resort in Doral this weekend is DocMiami, a documentary film festival.
  • The Godfather of Hip-Hop, Afrika Bambaataa, plays Revolution tonight.


  • French rockers Crusaders of Love swoop

    through Miami for So Raw's Let's

    Make Memories show at Bar.

  • The

    Good, the Bad, the Weird

    is a Korean homage to Sergio Leone's The

    Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. See why it scored a foreign film

    nomination at this year's Oscars. It screens at the Miami Beach Cinematheque all weekend.

  • Broward is kinkier than Dade, at least it is this weekend. Celebrate the 15th anniversary (that's

    crystal, right?) of the Fetish Factory parties. On Saturday, head to the decked-out, skin-flashing

    Fetish Ball.


  • Musicians,

    celebrities, and party people will flock to Bicentennial Park on Sunday for 2010's Best

    of the Best, a dancehall and hip-hop day-long concert. This year,

    the lineup includes Rick Ross, Diddy (and friends), Gucci Mane, and oh,

    just read the write-up here.

  • Recently-released jailbird T.I. plays

    Klutch just in time for the Urban Beach Week events. Now he knows why the caged bird sings.

  • Seven

    comedians will tickle your funnybone at Sunday's Memorial

    Weekend Comedy Festival.Our pick? Mark Curry. Give that man his own show. See his bit on crackheads here.

  • Cafeina, a Wynwood

    lounge/gallery, will host Los Angeles DJ duo Classixx, last seen in Miami during the Winter Music Conference.


  • Sports stars and rap celebs like Carmelo Anthony, Cam'ron, Jim Jones, and Fabolous will be at Klucth

    on Monday to celebrate Busta

    Rhymes' b-day. We gon' sip Bacardi like it's his birthday...cause it is.
